    You shouldn't even have to clarify this. ;)

    On Muppet Show, they were adults struggling in showbiz. On this show, they're your High School drama club that thinks cursing on stage to shock their parents would be awesome! (Or was that just my High School drama club? Lol)

    I know this but it seems like some people on this forum can't seem to comprehend some people DO know they haven't been this wholesome lunch type of thing forever. Even on MFS and the VMX though I didn't like either film due to some "raunchy" stuff they had heartwarming moments. I loved the song gonzo and kermit sang together in the mall "everyone matters" is a lovely song and makes me cry when I hear it.

    Oh yeah I mean will never watch VMX again, it literally gave me nightmares, but I still liking hearing that song on MC Radio every year. :)

    Well, I don't know how much of this new show has already been filmed but they may have to make some changes: http://deadline.com/2015/09/the-muppets-ratings-week-2-limitless-grandfathered-grinder-premiere-1201560819/

    (Btw, I don't like having to keep saying "this new show" because the title is so strangely generic.)

    I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned in the reviews from Tough Pigs or The Muppet Mindset.

    I thought episodes would be available for free viewing the day after they were broadcast, but it's been a day and you have to sign in to view on ABC.com and Hulu.

    maybe that was the intent since the show seems so generic. Oh! sorry I went there XD

    Is it playing an Oscar nominated version of "Together Again?"

    To get things back on track.....

    Some people have said they miss seeing Walter and Constantine in the new show I however think that not having them in the show right now is a smart move. One of the problems with The Jim Henson Hour and Muppets Tonight was to many newer characters and not enough of the ones people where ues to. This is the first time that since a lot of Muppet Show Muppets have been recast that the preformers get a chance to really get a feel for there new characters,and develop them,and make them there own. So the less we see of Walter and the more we see of Scooter, and the band I'm happy.

    I like how that characters on this show are really being fleshed out, I mean let's be honest, the secondary muppet characters have never really been given much to do, and even on TMS besides Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rowlf, Floyd, and Sam were fleshed out characters, everyone else barely appeared or were one note characters, there's nothing wrong with that, but with this show, we're seeing the muppets like we haven't since TMS, I mean the Newsman hasn't said this much in the over 30 years since the original TMS ended, and Bobo getting something to do since TM after his absence in MMW besides a brief cameo was great. Uncle Deadly getting lines, and scenes, he barely was in the original TMS, just great overall, I hope it continues to be this good, and Rowlf gets to be on the show.

    pot is not hard core, Alcohol and Tobacco are way more Hard core and Alcohol is way more of a gate way drug that most people who drink do so way to much like every night. most people I know who toke up do it Occasionally and when they do pot they are mellow as anything where as I know to many people some in my family who are mean drunks, and lets not get into the fact that Cigarettes have Chemicals in them that speed up the death process where as NO chemicals in Pot !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wish that "better than the first episode" was one of the poll options.

    I thought this one was better than the first. So much clever-ness from Kermit.

    Wow, Lips doesn't sound too different from the Barnyard Boogie number, and in both this and that, I thought he sounded a bit like Dr. Teeth, yet here he sounds more like Bill Baretta's Dr. Teeth. I wonder if Steve was able to remember what voice he used or if he had to rewatch the Barnyard Boogie number to refresh his memory.

    I read about there being a scene with Gonzo and Chip, thought that was going to be in this episode. Guess it's in a later one (or else it was cut).

    Surprised about Pepe's "gender is fluid" line. Pepe's the kind of character I would expect to be homophobic.

    I wonder if Zoot will get dialogue in every episode.

    I wondered if the shot of Lips wearing shades and a hat similar to what Zoot was wearing was supposed to have any significance, but it appears that's just one of those random no-reason wardrobe changes.

    I expected the Muppets to be hiding under the desk to avoid Bobo's girl scout cookie sales. I was wrong.

    The scene with Lawrence Fishbourne was funny.

    I don't think any of the human characters from the first episode appear in this one.

    I hope we get to see Rowlf's tavern soon. Though I kind of wish, if there is to be a tavern, that they created a new character to be the owner, and have Rowlf be involved with Piggy's show (but I guess there's no reason Rowlf can't occasionally play piano on her show).

    Another fantastic episode! Just as I mentioned last week... I can only see this show getting better & better as the weeks come. With that being said, Bobo the Bear is hilarious! I think he needs his own Late Night talk show too (just don't tell Piggy)!

    I think part of what made this episode so enjoyable was the fact that Denise wasn't there.

    In the first episode I thought that was Alice Dinnean performing Yolanda, but after seeing the 2nd episode I can tell that it was Julianne Buescher, who also performs Denise.
