    Well, hehe, I could argue that A Very Merry Muppet Christmas was completely off the mark and out of line with their alternative universe scenes. Yes I know it was an alternate universe, but that doesn't mean that's the way it should have been done. Just one friendly viewer opinion. ;)

    A forum is allowed to run its fanfics however it likes of course. I'm just saying, a lot of it is opinion. :)

    Of course it's all opinion. Here's mine about VMX: only Scooter was really a surprise. Sam I've always suspected was portrayed as the closeted liberal. Everyone else I can see being that way without Kermit. Even more interesting would be what the cast of Sam and Friends and Sesame Street turned out to be (for any fic writers, that's actually a good idea ... go write it, LOL).

    Anyway, not to derail the thread with irrelevancy ....

    As long as the author has an idea why they said what they said, I'm usually cool with it. They had to pull the idea out of somewhere, even if it's the most obscure line of dialogue or picture or whatever.

    Yeah and that's totally fine, I just didn't agree with the way they chose to show it. It could have been done differently. But anyway, I guess I'm just saying canon is often a loose term even for the actual product. ;)

    Yeah, particularly Muppets. I can't imagine, say, LOST being that wishy-washy with continuity.

    edit:

    And you're supposed to not like what happened to the characters. Why would Kermit desperately try to get back to his world if everyone seemed pretty much fine?

    Hehe good point.

    Oh I know, I know. I didn't mind that the characters were different and not doing well. I just questioned the taste level of how it was presented. It just seemed very gratuitous. I think it would have been done differently if the movie had been made a few years before.

    But not to get too off topic. ;)

    Thought one of my posts was deleted. Nevermind. However, the retitling of existing threads lately makes it confusing. A light touch is always the best solution. :wisdom:

    Thanks, Heralde. You got my point across for me. ;)

    Well I agree about fanfics writers doing research. But I do also agree with Frogboy's point. We write about relationships not in the movies or TV show all the time. I don't think Frogboy's idea is so far out. :)
