    Sorry I couldn't have the last 2 episodes as seperate result, there were only 15 slots, but you can still rank the episodes as seperate. So start the ranking.

    Here are my episode rankings and the reasons why:

    1. Generally Inhospitable: Perfect blend of Muppet Mayhem and character-driven storytelling.

    2. Going, Going, Gonzo: All around feel-good episode with solid plotlines.

    3. Pig’s in a Blackout: The first real indication that the show was finding its footing.

    4. Because….Love: A solid way to finish the series, with an open conclusion to accommodate cancellation or renewal.

    5. Tail of Two Piggies: Cleverly Meta with a fantastic stance against body-shaming.

    6. Little Green Lie: A great reintroduction to a long lost character with a sweet and simple moral.

    7. Swine Song: Very Meta and reaffirms the Muppets as a family rather than just colleagues.

    8. Single All the Way: Reminiscent of Classic Muppet Christmas specials

    9. Pig Out: Drunken Muppet Karaoke. Need I say more?

    10. The Ex-Factor: Piggy teaching Kermit a lesson ended up being a priceless moment.

    11. Got Silk?: The comedy was a bit bland, but Piggy and Deadly made up for that.

    12. Bear Left then Bear Write: Tranquilized Fozzie was the only real highlight.

    13. Hostile Makeover: Kermit’s escape plan was hugely satisfying, but that’s about it.

    14. Pig Girl’s Don’t Cry: For a Pilot it was strong, but indicated that there was a heap of work to be done!

    15. Too Hot Too Handler: The whole episode was just extremely bland. Handler brought nothing to the show’s comedy.

    16. Walk the Swine: It was meant to be funny, but it was just a case of terrible writing for Piggy.

    This may change later, but this is what I think the best episodes are.

    1. Generally Inhospitable/Because Love (these episodes tie for first, in my opinion. They were a great conclusion to the series, and everything I could have asked for in this series)
    2. Little Green Lie
    3. A Tail of Two Piggies
    4. Single all the Way
    5. Pigs in a Blackout
    6. The Ex-Factor
    7. Swine Song
    8. Going Going Gonzo
    9. Bear Left then Bear Write
    10. Pig Out
    11. Too Hot to Handler
    12. Pig Girls Don't Cry
    13. Hostile Makeover
    14. Walk the Swine
    15. Got Silk?
