Better than most stuff...

A great show with just enough entertainment for kids, while showing up with enough laughs for adults. My daughter and I loved it. Pure fun. The common sense reviewer must have a clod lodged somewhere because what else would force someone to bag on such a fun show?

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Like other Henson Company shows, the puppets are fantastic and technologically impressive, but unfortunately, the actual content of this show falls a bit flat for kids and adults alike. While the show is appropriate for whole-family viewing, much of this show's humor will go over kids' heads. The comedy is awkward, so it may not be for everyone. Also, many of the jokes poke fun of late night talk shows and the entertainment industry, and so the content involves a lot of industry navel-gazing. It's not true of every guest Ned interviews, but many segments feel like a thinly disguised promotional vehicle for Disney-related properties. Kids may enjoy watching the zany puppets in Earth to Ned, and some of the celebrity guests will be interesting to kids into pop culture. But overall, this isn't a show most kids will want at the top of their streaming queue.
