On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies—and the occasional TV show—in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below Slate movie critic Dana Stevens and Slate editorial director John Swansburg discuss Muppets Most Wanted, the sequel to the most recent reboot of the long-running Muppet franchise. Is it a worthy follow-up to its predecessor? Will hardcore Muppet fans leave the theater satisfied? And how privy do we really want to be to the intimate details of Kermit and Miss Piggy's love life?

Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
