Critic Reviews for Sesame Street Season 46

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

There are lots of other small touches - or technical flourishes - along with new cast members, notably Nina. Otherwise, best of luck finding anything radically different because there isn't all that much that's changed.

The show's changed a lot over the years, but, thankfully, its lessons in humor and good will persist.

A look at the first pay cable episode of the iconic kids show reveals that it offers the same mix of fun, education and goofiness that has kept "Sesame Street" a powerhouse piece of programming for 46 years.

It's unusual to wish for more time in a preschool show, but that's what these newer Sesame Street episodes leave you wanting.

Sure, Sesame Street has been gentrified, but it hasn't lost its charms. How you get to Sesame Street might be different, but the destination? As familiar as ever.

Perhaps two episodes in is too early to judge and my lens is tinted with nostalgia for the Sesame Street I grew up with, but I can't say I'm thrilled with the new show.

What's most striking about the new Sesame Street is that it's been brightened and tidied up to a High-Definition sheen.

There remains an innocence to Sesame Street that is missing from other shows aimed at the under-five set... [but] there's something a little sad about Sesame Street becoming more modern.

At heart, this latest version isn't vastly different from the Elmo-dominated, younger-child-focused "Sesame Street" of the past several years.

It's hard not to get caught up in the lively, trippy antics of this newly Street-wise show.

Audience Reviews for Sesame Street: Season 46

  • Jul 07, 2018
    I really enjoyed it, very educational for kids and fun for adults. Only this season there was no origin, then the previous season (which was the best so far) this was a decession.

    Stinks compared to previous seasons.
