I'm sure the failure of the recent series didn't help anything.
They sure don't, which is a shame because I like the basic ideas Josh Gad laid out in his Instagram post about what they wanted to do.
Didn't help that that series was crap.
Muppets Live Another Day was a really stupid idea and wasn't a series, it was a miniseries of 6-8 episodes that form a long movie.
HOWEVER Disney+ still has a Muppets show called Muppets Now, 'an unscripted, short-form series' (Whatever that means).
Probably a bunch of short random videos that would have gone up on YouTube if Disney weren't trolling for content for their own service.
Trolling for content? It's Disney, they own like 80% of everything in media, I don't think they have any issues with content.
Funny, because I think Muppets Now is the crappy idea.
I'd much prefer them to make new Muppet movies, but I guess the last movie made them apprehensive. All this makes me wonder how Netflix managed to snag The Dark Crystal. Isn't that owned by Disney? If that's the case, it could have just as easily been on Disney+.
I think he might have meant that rather than making a movie or a limited movie-like series or variety show, they could be (don't want to assume too much) falling back on the kind of content that could easily be found on Youtube for the most part, making it a sort of trolling on the part of paying customers. If I were a paying customer, I'd find that to be pretty crappy content.
Muppets Now to me seems like a modern day take on Muppets Tonight. Or at least I'm telling myself that.
Disney bought The Muppets and some other things, but The Jim Henson Company owns most of the rights to their things still.
Oh Ok. I was under the mistaken assumption that they also owned the Jim Henson Company.
No Good Nick was canceled by Netflix after one season.
Yet another Netflix show no one has even heard about.
I got through one episode, and stopped.
Melissa Joan Hart is a darling, but even that wasn't enough.
I saw it pop up on Netflix when it was launched, and Sean Astin made me check further. Didn't seem like it was for me.
Some one has got to fill in the family friendly void left behind by Fuller House departing.
I wonder if Aunt Becky is going to play herself in the lifetime movie about "her" cheating Scandal?
If fuller house was made about hicks and their sister wives and family incest hmmmmm well it might be a hit down south.
They can now bring back Family Matters. Same universe as Full House. Urkel to save the day! Jason
Please no.... Urkel was one of the worst sitcom characters.
Urkel was supposed to have a a several episode arc on Fuller House but I think once the show was canceled they got rid of that idea too.
But they can do a new Family Matters, call it 'Even More Family Matters'.
It would be interesting to see how Urkel antics would play coming from a 40 year old man. Jason
No it wouldn't... It would be cringe inducing.
True but cringe can be fun. It's the stuff that dives B movie exploitation movies. Plus you just don't see tv shows built around crazy gimmicks anymore. Jason
