    Wait a minute... didn't Gina spend a vast majority of the 1998-99, 1999-2000, and 2000-2001 seasons STUDYING zoology because being a vet was her dream? And then she opened her office towards the end of Season 32 and was so psyched about it? And she's been a godsend of a vet for the past five seasons, so what made her decide to be a mechanic all of the sudden?

    Exactly why I said I couldn't see it happening; at least the last big change I remember on the set (the Mail-It Shop) made practical sense, even though Maria and Luis had been fixing toasters since their debut. But Sesame Street hardly ever gets any traffic unless it's part of a safety lesson--would New Yorkers, even in a TV universe, be willing to drive/tow their cars that far to be fixed?

    Isn't that where they used to keep Gordon's VW anyway? It was originally a garage.

    I actually think the reason why they're not having Gina be a vet as much anymore is because she's a mom now. So she really doesn't have time to be a vet anymore. It's called maternity leave.

    And there's actually another change to the show. This may be a big one. The show will actually be filmed in HD! Yes, that's right! High Definition! How I wish I had an HDTV for that. It would be totally appropriate for the first episode to have the letters H and D as sponsors.

    Yeah but maternity leave is intended to be temporary. :)

    Oh boy. It seems as everything is going into HD now!:zany:

    Um, so if she doesn't have time to be a vet anymore, what makes her think she'll have enough time to be an auto mechanic?

    It ain't going to be in wide-screen is it?:concern:

    I have mixed feelings about a new Around the Corner. As long as they don't try to make the show too "cool" and "current" as they did in that era, I'll be fine. And Birdland Jazz Club still exists, to my knowledge. Benny Rabbit's still around, but he's not a bellhop anymore.

    This season sounds totally promising, what with...
    *The new set, which looks pretty good.
    *Jim Henson's Creature Shop is going to be involved with this season, which could be cool. I hope they're better than Magnetic Dreams!
    *Caroll Spinney performing in the Big Bird suit once again!
    *The new human cast member. This could work. Who knows? She could become a new Olivia, like Chris became the new David.
    *It's going to be shown in high-definition! I wonder how classic 1980s and early 1990s skits would look in high-def?

    It sounds even better than Season 38!

    I do hope the change to HD doesn't mean my old TV set won't get it (even when I get the digital converter box, it'll still be plain old low-def).

    That would be tantamount to a commercial for HD TV's. SW is above that, at least.

    Yeah, I can't afford anything. My Tv needs to be replaced badly, and there's no way I can afford a new one. had it for 8 years, and they just don't build things to last anymore.

    It's cool that they want to do this, but the older sketches will look fuzzy and off...

    That's right, it's fuzzy and off. Stop it before I break into song already.

    Did the ep air w/ Big Bird rollerskating? I haven't had a chance to view Season 39 that much with school and all. And I know the season's almost over. So will this be a possible insert for the season finale or something? :confused:

    I wanna see BB rollerskate!:batty:

    No, nothing from that video has appeared in the new season. Maybe it's for a DVD.
