    As far as TM2015 goes, I always figured that Kermit's story arc was going to be finding himself again in a world that is so different from the way things were when he was running The Muppet Show. So I accepted his 'bitterness' because I honestly thought the writers were going to take him through a genuine process.

    As for outside of the show, I never found Steve's performance of Kermit to be depressing. He was always fun in guest appearances and the like, and if Kermit was in fact annoyed or otherwise, it was generally justified.

    I can imagine Kermit being a little more beat down in M15. On TMS, he was pretty much dealing with these crazies for the first time. Now, he's got 40+ years of dealing with them. He's naturally gonna be a little more weary of their antics.

    Well, I guess they didn't want to reuse the same storyline from VMX though I have noticed both plots did seem quite similar.

    I always thought the cool thing about Muppets is that they don't get burnt out like people.

    It's pretty interesting how Peter linz Took over Robin but I'm curious to Here Eric's performance as the Newsman

    He did perform The Newsman during the Hollywood Bowl and there was a clip but I couldn't find anywhere.

    It's okay, but it's basically Guy Smiley.

    I'm not a fan of Peter's Robin because it kind of sounded like Robin had a bad cold or was going through puberty lol.
