    Sorry I haven't been around much to give my thoughts on the previous few episodes (schoolwork got into my way as always), but this week's episode was too good not to be talked about!! Anyways...

    I gotta say Steve, David, and Eric really got to shine in this particular episode! Favorite parts included...

    1. The whole fight between Miss Piggy and Reese (the "I'm Sorry" song was truly the icing on the cake!!)
    2. Fozzie being in tears after Becky and several other Muppets sang "True Colors" (extra points for Zoot playing a riff of it on his saxophone) (Overall I loved how Becky managed to get revenge on Fozzie!)
    3. Rizzo trying to get his relatives involved with Scooter's car trouble (I hope to see more from those two together! They really make a spectacular duo!)

    MY FAVORITE EPISODE OVERALL...for now at least!!!!!!!!

    I think they're trying to turn Floyd into a redneck. He has something of a southern accent. I don't remember Jerry performing him with one.

    So I saw a preview commercial for next week's episode seems denise is going to show up again.
    I wonder if they know how OOC that would be? Floyd, well sergeant floyd seemed pretty liberal in anything I saw him in wouldn't liberal redneck be an oxymoron? Also a redneck cannot be "hip". Like I said floyd always acted like a snarky cool dude musician in everything else he's been. The thing I hate the most is people rewriting how a character that has been around for over 40 years acts for the sake of being "up to date". *facepalm* Hip musician =///= paranoid redneck. and yes I will complain about it because the electric mayhem are some of my favorite characters I WILL call them out if they mess them up.

    That would be a shame, if the writers instantly connect a southern accent with questionable intelligence. That was never the point of the character. But I imagine that's a stereotype many Hollywood writers love nowadays.

    Actually,the redneck stereotype in fiction seems to be used a lot less than it once was.

    Perhaps you're right, I've just met far too many artsy types lately who revel in that stereotype a little too much out of some misguided political loyalty.

    seems somebody needs to watch the muppet show a few times to figure out how he acts.


    also his new voice makes him sound like an old chain smoker.

    I don't think they're turning him into a redneck at all. They've definitely got a "conspiracy theorist" vibe going, but that's not a redneck trait, per se. There's conspiracy theorists of all stripes, and a hippy conspiracy theorist is actually a pretty common, if old fashioned, take on the trope.

    We know that a hippy conspiracy theorist is common. But the thing is; that's not Floyd.

    Well you know what the problem is, Floyd's thing on Muppet Show was that he was walking complaining to Kermit about how un-hip the show could be. But now with this new show, it's Kermit who acts like he doesn't want to be there.

    @Duke Remington, you should hear JD Hansel, Jarrod Fairclough, and Darrin Granter discuss Piggy crying and how it's reminiscent of the Piggy that you guys miss. Listen from 36:39 to 41:55, 44:47 to 46:02, and 57:15 to 1:03:16. http://muppethub.com/ltm05/

    I sure did hear that. Loved it.

    I just wish that certain other members on this forum would agree and see it that way, because Piggy's personality in the new series is indeed close to what it was in the old days and is slowly redeeming her as a character after over 15 years of her constantly getting Flanderized.

    And even greater is the fact that we actually have a new weekly Muppet show that allows the characters to be deep and complex again and really close to how they used to be, especially Kermit and Piggy (unlike a lot of those stupid interviews and guest appearances that either Flanderized or derailed the characters). Another reason why we MUST continue supporting the show and saying more nice things about it, so it can increase its chances of getting more seasons for sure.

    Piggy crying was definetly a nice emotional moment that we haven't seen in a long time

    While the Scooter and Rizzo subplot was one of the best things about this episode (along with the closing song), I must wonder what the deal with it is. So Rizzo talks Scooter out of getting his insurance involved by saying that he'll be labled an unsafe driver, and keeps scamming Scooter into getting relatives as clients.... What's the deal with this? Is Rizzo just trying to find work for his relatives? Is Rizzo uninsured and doesn't want to be caught?
