    Yeah the fact the Muppets apparently now have physical intimacy with humans is a bit...weird to get used to. A little Greg the Bunny-ish.
    But...
    What I hope is seeing interaction with the humans who work in the office, which hasn't happened yet. This episode definitely tho felt like an episode of The Office(which isnt a bad thing!)

    yeah the puppetry is off the charts insane with this show. It's the nuanced stuff in the background as well that makes the show shine. By the way who is
    the monster that looks kind of like Beautiful Day Monster that was in this episode? I loved how he was waving to the camera in the distance as Scooter was talking

    Side note, laughed at Pepe's "gender fluid" line but I have the feeling Pepe is pretty much straight given what a womanizer he is. Tho can almost guarantee there will be LGBT Muppets or hinted at.

    Maybe Alice did perform her in the first episode. Some shows do have different actors or VAs in pilot episodes than in the rest of the series. So it's possible it could have been both of them who performed her.

    I think the new muppet show is really great. It is really cool to see the band and everyone in a new way. I hope that the show gets more people to like it or it will get the ax.

    Not really. I grew up watching Hey Cinderella with King Goshposh and his noticeably human son Arthur. You can gather the rest, lol. (And that's what we mean by implied humor ;)).

    Not to mention Raquel Welch declaring the bear is sexational. :flirt:

    I meant it more in deth
    well it new to me, I really am glad that more then just Miss Piggy Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzy get the spotlight in this. I truley think that there needs to be more chances for others like the band to shine.

    ^ as long as the band shining doesn't involve them getting arrested or something... Bad enough they dumbed them down a lot in this series so far.

    This episode was really good, but uhm, why was Zoot drawing a 'you-know-what' in Sweetum's birthday card? It seemed a little bit like forced adult humor just to get the point across. I thought that was going to foreshadow a lame episode, but it turned out that that was the dumbest joke in the whole thing and the rest was really good.

    + Crazy Harry looking in the refrigerator :crazy:
    + I'm really enjoying how this show is having certain Muppets interact with each other that we've never seen before i.e. Animal talking to Scooter. I will always notice random things like that. Like I noticed this in the first episode when Fozzie was talking to Piggy on the phone, but we know the reasons why they hardly interacted in the past, so this opens up some whole new possibilities
    + That Kermit-Scooter-Deadly trio at the beginning was really cool. Loving Uncle Deadly's more prominent role
    + I actually find the scenes where it's just the Muppets more funny than when they're with humans, probably because it's just so ridiculous that all of these weird characters are functioning in their own little world together. For example, the scene where they were trying to book Piggy's guest/date in the beginning
    + How Newsman wore a different color suit "the next day". It's not necessary, but it's interesting how they're having characters wear different clothes each day and how they're making a point of having characters like Dr. Teeth and the rest of the band not wearing their 'normal' clothes
    + Newsman kind of reminded me of Andy Bernard, seeing as how the show was heavily inspired by The Office
    + This episode reminded me a lot of prime-Simpsons, which is always good

    I hope the absence of Denise this week means they are done with her. We don't need her there to just anchor Kermit down. He was so much more free on his own in this episode

    Overall, this episode really gave me hope for the longevity of this series.

    Yeah, I wouldn't take any of this stuff seriously. They just put it in there to create jokes. Like the Gonzo ignoring his stranded mom was funny, stupid funny, like Homer Simpson-funny.

    Completely agree. Missed opportunity there on their part.


    The Muppets are evolving. It's no secret these aren't the Muppets from the '70s, but I'm not sure if the sincere '70s Muppets have a place in today's culture.

    Blue, in this day and age a little niceness would be refreshing and I' welcome it with open arms but it seems today's world is just "MEMEMDEMMDEMEMEEE!NOBODY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME! I DON'T HAVE TO BE NICE! NICE IS FOR LOOOOOOOOSERS!" >_<

    The 70s was not the most innocent decade. Quite the contrary, actually. So yes, I do think the sincere Muppet still have a place in today's culture. :)

    dwayne I want them to show kermit humming whistling or something involving the song during an episode. Just him like thinking about living in the swamp and he has a happy memory.

    oh definitely not I love the band they are my top 6 favorite muppets.
    I would love to see them get their own stories and air time.
    the last thing i would want to see would be for them to get arrested.
    Also i think we could do with out the pot jokes too.

    I do get what your saying, and I agree that some of Kermit's best stuff is when he is softer and more mellow insteed of angry. Being Green and Rainbow connection are his best songs, and I think in time we wil get him back to that. It just will take time.

    They could do an episode where the Electric Mayhem gets arrested and/or goes on trial (for non-drug-related reasons, maybe they could be wrongfully accused or framed).

    I still am on an emotional high from the first two Episodes, The Muppets Are Back Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am planing on watching all the good Muppets Movies and then the first two shows of this series to get pumped yet again !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think if people who don't like this brand of the muppets just sit back and take it for what it is, modern muppets, then you might find that they are the same muppets as they always were with less music that is really the only difference!

    The muppets have always been at least a little edgy.
    Plus I read that they had Miss Piggy and Kermit break up in the 90's in fact didnt they put that out like a week before Jim Henson passed away. He approved that story.
    And lets not forget the wilkens ads and all the other old Classic that they did.
