I really like these shows, and they seem to treat the Muppets respectfully enough. There's some irreverence, of course, but that's just part of the package. What bugs me is the fact that I'm old enough to watch these shows and a) remember almost everything they're talking about b) complain that things today aren't as cool as they used to be What is that?!? If I'm old enough to remember the decade I grew up in as a distinct period rather than just take it all for granted as my reality, then there's something wrong!!
