Are The Muppets still relevant?
I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. Now, I’m going to come out of character a little bit to reveal that I am an uncle of Three Nieces as of this blog Twin ten year olds and their baby sister who is seven months old as of this blog. I was over where they live one day and I brought over a movie starring The Muppets and while my intentions were good, my nieces weren’t interested namely because the baby probably wouldn’t have been able to process it and her older sisters thought The Muppets were lame which made me feel as if I had failed as an uncle and had me asking several questions. One) Did I miss the boat in showing my Twin nieces what the Muppets were all about? Two) Would their baby sister share the same fate? But for me the big one was “Are The Muppets still relevant?”

Well I will discuss this series in full later on this month
The Chef segments could be hit or miss, IMO. my favorite parts were the Muppet Labs field tests and Pepe’s Quiz Show (aka “Pop Quiz Hotshot” done right)
I’m glad you think that, so do I. I enjoyed Muppets Now because when I got Disney+ my youngest niece and I checked out Muppets Now and we both laughed with the Swedish Chef segments.
I’d say that while they were definitely struggling for a few years, Muppets Now has definitely shown that they can be relevant. Just requires the right writing to handle the material.
