    What exactly are you referring to?

    I meant more along the lines of a Meta thing. Like a gag where Walter mistakes Jason for his brother, but Jason says "no, that was a movie" giving Walter a complex or something through the episode.

    On that note, when Jason confirmed that he wouldn't be returning for MMW, it got me to thinking about if Amy Adams would be reprising her role as Mary. It would be interesting if we got at least a peek of the wedding if not whole thing.

    I don't think that's giving Walter enough credit. He knows "The Muppets" was just a movie. I'm sure I've seen 'behind the scenes' videos where he says so.

    As an alternative I think they could have some fun with Jim Parsons (ie. 'human Walter') making an appearance. Maybe people can't tell him and Walter apart, and there's mistaken identities all episode...

    Overthinking hypotheticals, are we? Personally, I'm itching for someone to make some reference to the lack of continuity and canon for the Muppets, especially when the last two films tried to put the original three films into continuity while saying they're also films. There's a lot of potential for meta humor here.

    Thank you. It's strange that the minute your opinion isn't bright and cheerful, the answer must be that you're completely against change. It's just a cheap way to instantly invalidate someone's opinion.

    No reference, just a little pun.

    I have to wonder. If they make the muppets swear would it seem awkward?

    LaRanaRene Well-Known Member

    I don't think they'd ever do that. If they did it would kind of seem out of place.

    NO I am referring to it as a super regular thing. Like in a lot of the tv shows out today. and I mean the more VULGAR things I won't post here. It might put off a few people.

    That accusation sounds cryptic and awful and very unmuppet-like. I prefer to think positively until given a good reason not to and leave the garbage bin of knee-jerk negativity to the cable news pundits.

    I didn't ACCUSE them of anything! I am saying I hope it doesn't happen! I am worried it might I never outright said 'THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE FOUL LANGUAGE IN THIS SHOW IT'S GOING TO THE DEVIL!". as a fan I just don't want something like that to happen and I have every right to worry about it given how the tv shows today rely on this sort of thing a lot. I don't see how that's a "knee-jerk reaction" whatever that is supposed to mean. :(
