    Bi-weekly? So, fortnightly then...

    Yay! :sympathy:


    Aww, I wish it was two weeks already...

    My thoughts exactly. Personality was right on, but yeah, just needs to get a little deeper on the voice and it'll be almost perfect!

    Can't wait to see who's spotlighted next... :D

    Also, did Rowlf look a little thinner to you?

    OMG yes! I was waiting to see if anyone else noticed this. But he looked like he lost his whole back side! He must be on one of those crash diets like Lindsay Lohan. Oops, did I type that out loud?

    You know, I thought I was just imagining it. He definately looks thinner, though.

    "And now, back to the old chew toys!"

    That had me laughing!

    You did and I loved it!

    Loved it and was gald to hear old brown ears talk. He did look a lot thinner. Hope he don't stay to long on that "Break away that back fat" diet. I loved it and would watch it over and over.

    Actually, DevonMiles, it's Dave doing Waldorf (the shorter one who was Jim's character) and Steve Whitmire doing Statler (the taller one who was Richard Hunt's and Jerry Nelson's character). Hope that clears things up...

    :boo: :sleep: :sympathy:

    Right, but what about a bi-fortnight?!

    Yeah, we generally don't use fortnightly in the U.S. but we should - it sure would clear things up. And it's a great sounding word too. No matter what the true meaning of bi-weekly (or bi-monthly or by-annually for that matter), we often have to clarify with each other, "Do you mean this week plus the week after next or twice this week?"

    Well, I guess we'll all be back here to discuss the next installment in a fortnight. :)

    Next episode...

    Just to make sure I don't confuse anyone by being silly, the next episode is actually scheduled for July 20 - not in a fortnight from today. Right? Right! :confused:

    I was not happy with Rowlf's performance but I am starting to believe this is just me. Yes it was great to see him back in action but it seemed to me like the whole performance was off. Maybe I am wrong. Is there anyone else outhere that would agree with me that the performance was off.

    Well ANY performace of an old character by a new performer will be off. It's just life. It will never seem perfect because it will never be perfect. You just have to accept the chages or never waytch anything new.

    i liked the GMC music and it was nice to have Rowlf finally speak

    unclematt Well-Known Member

    I realize all that and really this is the first time I am having a problem with a new performer performing a character. I dont know, it just seemed like it needed alot of work. It could just be me and maybe I will grow used to it. All and all Iam glad to see them using Rowlf again.

    I'm in a hurry for Jerry Nelson's characters to be re-cast with new performers, now, so we can see the EM Band back in full swing (now that we have performers for Dr. Teeth, Janice, and Animal--thank GOODNESS Dave's still there to play Zoot!)
  18. MWoO

    MWoO Well-Known Member

    Yes, thank God Dave is there to play the character that almost never talks. lol That really does stink when you think about it. Steve and Dave are there to play Lips and Zoot and yet niether characters talk or sing usually. How ironic.
  19. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Never thought of it that way, either!!

    Yes, we need Floyd to be re-cast now. We need our TMS EM BAND rockin' again.

    We got Rowlf back, YAY! Lovin' that!

    There's a new episode up--Stealth, and The Island. Johnny Fiama's in it, and make sure you click on the "bonus clip" button for some fun with Pepe.

    :boo: :sleep: :rolleyes:
