    Ok everyone i have been very busy in the last few days, doing somthing for all you Muppet fans. I have been talking through e - mails to Muppet writer Jim Lewis, who has been posting a little on here. We started talking becsse he wants to start a "ask Jim" thread but didnt know how to go about doing all of it. So i asked him if he wanted some help with it, and he gladly said yes. I wanted it to be like the Terry Angus thread and have an interview of jim so he would not really have to repeat himself with a whole lot of qustions.I have finished the interview and sent it to him. He will send it back soon with the answer so be on the look out.

    Sounds interesting. I'll be excited to see an interview with Jim Lewis, as he is one of my heroes, however I'm not so sure that we need to address him on specific so-called 'controversial' issues.

    I, for one, would rather hear him answer questions about the people he's met, the ideas he's had, his writing inspirations, etc than make him feel we are lambasting him with issues. I'm sure you wouldn't be meaning it that way, but you need to be sure that the interview doesn't come across negatively.

    iQ. The scene where Scooter is dancing in the cage has caused quite a bit of buzz on the fan web sites about it being too much. When writing and filming that scene, did anyone think it was too much?



    This is how i worded and sent the qustion and from how he sounded the last time he worte me he was really happy with all qustions

    Hey Dwayne, sorry for thinking it would be a problem. You worded it perfectly. You know me, I'm just over-protective. :p!

    You're right, I'd like to see mostly that kind of thing as well. I don't like reading gossip. However, interviews shouldn't just be white washes. I personally would like to know what people thought of that controversial scene as well. And yeah the question was worded perfectly. :)

    Wow, I can't wait to read it! Jim came across as such a lovely person when we talked to him before, I'm sure interviewing him was a terrific experience for both of you!
    :) Also, Heralde's right. Congradulations for taking the initiative. I don't think I for one would have done it.
