Interesting mash up of two episodes for The Muppets season finale. Will there be a second season is the big elephant in the room. It didn’t quite find and settle into it’s niche.

The Muppets started off strong upon their return from hiatus, but it seems to be missing something as of lately. Though the show is generally moving in a more traditional way, much familiar to the that of the classic Muppets, there’s something that’s off.
After a strong reset in the new year, last night’s episode showed a little signs of wear. “Got Silk?” was another solid outing, but after two great episodes that maintained a tight, fast pace and less of the Miss Piggy-Kermit entanglements this episode still felt like like a step back.
Thanksgiving and Christmas specials are troublesome for some shows to integrate into their writing, The Muppets however did not miss their mark on this one as the show has synced into a nice smooth rhythm and is consistently found a stride in their writing, characters, and overall storyline.
This was an all-around great episode, it seems as though the show has found its rhythm and is striding along beautifully. It continues to thrive and does a great job involving the entire Muppets cast, making it a lot more entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
Whatever Miss Piggy wants, Miss Piggy gets-unfortunately. As much as I love them, the biggest problem with this situation is The Muppets, they hate having to deal with her temper tantrums, among other things, yet they enable her diva like type of behavior.
As for as office sitcoms go, The Muppets is very funny. “Hostile Makeover” is miles ahead of the pilot and gives a greater sense of what this series could be and how it’ll function week to week, but I can’t help but miss some classic Muppet antics that are severely absent.
The Muppets are back with their take on modern love, interspecies dating, and bisexual shrimp. It’s perfect timing for our favorite felted friends to return to the airwaves with an updated – and in my opinion – upgraded version of The Muppet Show .
