Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by Phillip, Aug 14, 2006.
Yeah, they do things without explanation a lot, LOL!
1 Will agree that it was good to see a Suzy Kabloozy bit where it's not Let's see what the judges say... Number segment.
Just would've liked to get the original version of Everybody Sleeps instead.
2 The concept of the Mail-It-Shop was OK for it's purposes...
The Fix-It-Shop bit had gotten old, seeing as how it was only used to fix toasters and pretty much nothing else during the last few seasons (30-32) from what I've seen on Noggin.
So I was OK with and understood why they'd want to try something new with the Mail-It-Shop. Plus, it's always a good thing to have a local post office near your home.
But as OK it was, the Fix-It-Shop just evokes much more nostalgic sentiment than the Mail-It-Shop ever will... The Fix-It-Shop is a classic traditional hallmark and landmark of Sesame Street.
Guess they felt it was better to bring it back, along with changing the set so that it incorporates more of the classic look/feel as someone mentioned above what with the return of the stairs in the Arbor/Courtyard area.
Hope this helps.
I kinda found the whole "Rocko" thing annoying and wanted to see Elmo either slap Zoe or walk away and talk to someone else instead, and I like Zoe! I thought this was a very good episode, good to see the Count on thr Street but I missed having an Ernie segment. The L&O segment was great. Did anyone catch the credits? Who else are new performers? I saw Heather Asch, Amanda Maddock, and I heard about a Ryan Dillon.
Leslie never played Baby Bop on Barney
Zoe was rebuilt for this season. Her eyes are smaller, her hair has "sparkles" in it, and her tutu is a slightly different color. I really like the street scene, although I know there are better ones coming up. Abby will be featured prominently in one more episode, then have a supporting role in another, so no worries about being "Abby'd" out. As for her being in EW, they film EW months in advance of the Street scenes and Abby hadn't been finalized as of yet, although it would have been nice to see her there. And Jerry performed the Count.
Does this mean Leslie Carrara is not a full time puppeteer?
I enjoyed it all. Love Abby too. I can't wait for more episodes. YEAAAAAAA!!! Keep them coming SWS.
I didn't mention that their harmony was also really good.
Yeah, Ms. Carrara was not listed in the credits with the other performers.
Saw the other half
I saw the other half of the first ep of the new season this morning, the local PBS station here in NYC runs the same ep twice in a row at the beginning of a new season.
I found it interesting, kind of neat how Abby added a new twist to a game of Hide and Seek, how do you find someone who can disappear. I liked how Maria didn't believe that Abby's wand would work at first, you could hear the skepticism in her voice. Of course when it did she was faced with another problem, a really broken toaster. Interesting that The Count didn't go to the fix-it shop with them for his monocle, instead he called for an optician.
Johnathan woke up just as Cookie and Prarie were introducing the letter M, so I couldn't see the second half again. Oh well I'm a little old for watching the same thing twice in a row anyway. I let Megan watch the second half alone.
I also liked it.
Missed it. *sigh*
yeah same here with our PBS. i didnt get to catch it yesterday (8/14) but i DID see it today. Abby poped in and out of class and elmo went with her for "show n tell"
Ugh... Missed today's episode.
*In Mr. Baggs voice from Courage the Cowardly Dog: Stupid blackout!
It hit at 8 AM and went on for two and a half hours.
Only hope is either the weekend which I'm extremely doubtful, repeat season, or if someone taped it and posted it on youtube.com and my university's computer can run it there.
In episode 4111, Cookie Monster would make a parody of Elmo's World... Cookie World!
I never really thought that strange. It's probably because the Fix-It Shop can't just fix a shattered monocle. The Count didn't need it fixed, he needed a new one. Hence the optician. That's just what I think. I was so excited to see the Count in the street scene once again. HE even looked so happy to be there too instead of being cooped up alone in his castle all the time.
So... Anybody have a review of today's episode, 4110?
whos talkin about that?!!!??
I wonder if since Hoots was completely rebuilt it means we will be seeing more of him again in the future.
Well, it seems like they have gone back to making the show appealing for older kids as well as adults. Especially with the Law & Order parody yesterday, and today, they had the "Get Up" song, which was a parody of the song "Hey Ya!" by Outkast.
