    Man, I'll admit, it was very, very unusual to have the Electric Mayhem do some music to the point where Statler & Waldorf literally fall asleep when they used those acoustic instruments. The "Code RED" part was hilarious! The way Kermit's face looked when he was talking to Scooter while Miss Piggy was having a FIT was spot on!!!!

    I really enjoyed every bit of it.
    My favorite lines from the show this week are;

    :cool: "Maybe I can make it into a saxophone?"
    :concern: "My mother is stuck in the jungle somewhere, yet I know she's having a better time"
    ;) "Yeah, Legally Now."
    :hungry: "Sombody cookin' De bacon?"
    Big Mean Carl - " I'm New! I don't understand politics around here!"

    Loving the full body shots. I just can't get enough of those. Piggy on the piano & Kermit sitting on the edge of his desk.

    Bobo trying to sell his daughter's bear scout cookies with the Newman selling everyone his daughter but Bobo not being able too untill the band moment. Funny line too.

    Is loving the Muppets too bad for your health?

    speaking of the EM's slow number... I am surprised Animal didn't have another freak out like he did in that one episode of the muppet show.


    Teeth's comment was spot on though and real funny.

    Darth drop it. Please. You made your point.

    Really great episode. Others have already echoed my own thoughts about all the great funny parts, but I really wanted to talk about my favorite part of tonight's episode, Kermit!

    I absolutely loved his whole plot. From all the color codes, to fixing Piggy up, to trying to figure out how to get things back to normal. I really had no idea how Kermit was going to fix this without making Piggy mad, but the solution he found was brilliant! Gotta love how devious he can be. :) And then to top it all off, Piggy had the great line about how she was changing Josh Groban for the worse. Never change Piggy.

    I hope that's not the only time we see Lea Thompson. I love her and really wanted to see where that whole elevator conversation was going. Piggy got to date Josh Groban, let Kermit get together with someone!

    I thought I hate this episode but, I love it. The only gripe with it was Zoot jokes. Other than a few minor nitpicks I thought it was good.

    I loved it! I think Kermit got a little bit jealous of Josh Groban there! I was so excited that Lips spoke! Bobo and the Newsman competing to sell Girl Scout cookies, priceless! Fozzie's bit with Jay Leno, that was good although I'm not a big Leno fan. I totally got the Electric Mayhem getting the munchies because of ...you know. I'd also like to know what went on in the elevator in the end.

    I can't wait for more!

    I have been reading Jim"s bio for this last month, and the only real hard drugs Jim ever tried was LSD,and it was a one time thing. Jim was a very healthy man up to the very end of his life,and as far as I have seen and read he kept his body clean as well. Jim did not just hang out with George Lucas. He helped him with Empier Strikes Back,and George helped him with Labyrinth. Doing research is great but to assume that Jim was into drugs just because he worked with two of the biggest producers in Hollywood is stretching it a bit.

    I loved the uproar caused by Miss Piggy at the beginning after she found out about her sharpie colors being replaced and especially the end result of her office rage being a piece of paper being stuck to Bunsen.
    Also some other upsides for me:
    Lips speaking
    Yolanda speaking
    Bobo and Scooter referencing the line said by Kermit about the band being happy in the pilot trailer
    The Newsman and Bobo being in competiton with each other
    Yolanda objecting to what Zoot was going to doodle on the paper
    Everyone objecting to Kermit's plan to get Josh Groban to stop spending too much time with Miss Piggy
    Everyone's moment of silence after Pepe made a comment about Josh Groban.

    Overall, I think this was a great improvement on the pilot which was good, but not great, if the pilot was MTM, then this was TMM, everythiing about the pilot was reallly great, and hilarious, my only problem is no Rowlf, who I hope gets to be in the next episode. From the main plot to Fozzie's subplot, everything was great, the Lea Thompson joke at the end was hilarious, and Laurence Fishburne got a few great lines. I liked the majority of the jokes in the episode, and really just want more, just a great episode of the show, and I hope people liked the episode a lot.

    I didn't really weigh in on the first episode. I liked it, but I also think that first episodes tend not to be great, and a lot of the jokes were already spoiled for me by the pilot and the commercials. Still, I laughed and liked it.

    This, though, was just great! Now that I'm used to the style of the show, I found I could just relax and enjoy it more. Very funny stuff! The weird encounter with Laurence Fishburne really got me. And I loved the Kermit side-mouth talking at the beginning under the desk. Cool move!

    It just occurred to me that Denise exists. When I wrote this, I completely forgot Kermit was dating anyone! I'm really surprised she wasn't in this episode. You'd think they'd want to give the new character a lot of screen time so people don't forget her.

    Thanks. :)

    One more thing I'm really liking about the new show - we're seeing quite a bit of interaction between characters that normally don't speak to each other (Pepe and the EM, Bobo and Newsman, etc).

    Wow so many thoughts on such an awesome show. I love when Kermit plays so many different emotions. I think deep down he really loves Piggy,and maybe that will come out more.
    I noticed something in the first show and it kind of runs over into this one as well. They have kind of dumbed down the band. Not making them high just a little dumb. I did love Dr.Theeth's dead inside line though. I love how they gave so many secondary characters some very funny lines. Did anyone else see beautiful day monster look at the camera as someone was talking?
    The puppetry is absolutely wonderful. The Muppet performers are really doing some great work with both the puppetry and the characters.
    I love this show, and can't wait for next week.

    I was thinking of it as more of a symptom of kleptomania or sort of somewhere along those lines.

    Pros:
    1. Musical performance from Josh Groban
    2. Good celebrity selection, since Josh Groban's last Muppet appearance was Muppets Most Wanted

    In terms of Muppets, I hope Constantine appears and causes Mayham for the Muppets, as community service for the Gulag.

    In terms of Celebrities, I hope we get Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais from Muppets Most Wanted as well.

    Yeah... I had the same thought that Kleptomaniac/Pickpocket Fozzie from the alternate universe where Kermit was never born from VMMC was creeping into Fozzie's actual personality. *Shrugs.

    Also of note... When Kermit says they're having the first Code Green ever, we get his happy arm-flailing YAAAAYYY!!!
