    I just will never buy the :attitude:-:flirt: thing. Even if he wasn't into Janice, this Sam is a whole lot more friendly and different than the old, strict, boring Sam.

    This one folks.... this is the one right here! THIS was classic Muppets! Maybe it's the holidays that bring out the best in them? No matter what, the show's writing was right on point! So many sweet and hilarious moments! Uncle Deadly's "Can of Worms" cracked me up!

    Of course, nothing thrilled me more than seeing the frog & pig have a moment! I see them back together real soon! :)

    When was the last time the show had a morning meeting? I think those were cut out.

    This was a great Winter Finale episode. Thankfully, Piggy and Kermit haven't gotten together already like the promos made us believe; they're still just friends for now. And Fozzie's relationship with Becky still has some chance of getting back together, since it wasn't outright stated that their breakup was permanent.

    And we got a great heartwarming moment between Kermit and Piggy over her loneliness that gave me the feels, as the Muppets are good at doing. And even though there was a 3rd plotline here with Sam's continued crush on Janice, it wasn't too intrusive, and was even sweetly concluded in the end.
    Also, gotta love Big Mean Carl's take on "'Twas the Night Before Christmas".

    That said, I'm still cautiously optimistic about the show's return in February. I really hope the producers don't ditch all the storylines that have been established to this point, but that's the worst case scenario.

    Indeed this wasn't just one of the best episodes of the series, it's also the best Christmas thing the Muppets have done in a while. At first, I was a little, not so much concerned but kinda skeptical about them doing a holiday themed episode. But they managed to keep the show's continuity and make some great breakthroughs along with the seasonal Christmas themes.

    The Piggy and Kermit talk is exactly what I was hoping for since the summer's publicity stunt of having Kermit and Piggy break up. They dealt with it quite well, and the seeds they planted at the beginning are starting to sprout. I've really liked how they handled the guest stars in recent episodes (not so much the Chelsea Handler one, but I'd say that's still an improvement over the beginning of the series), how they're not the main plotline, but involved enough to give them that Muppet and celeb punch. if this is how the series is going to be come February, I'm very optimistic about the show. They even seemed to get the characters better in the latest episodes. Hopefully this was the result of the guy who wasn't Bill Prady leaving. Hope the word of mouth spreads about the show's sharp increase of quality and the ratings get better after the break. As defensive as I was about the show at the beginning, I'll agree fully. This is where the show should have been.

    And as I say every week, I'm glad Yolanda adds to the unfortunately thin roster of female Muppet characters. Every week, that character knocks it out of the park. Glad to see they brought back a long dormant character to fill out the cast. Same deal with Uncle Deadly, though that seems more to give Matt another character to play regularly.

    I'd like to see more X-chromosomes like Annie Sue and Mildred Huxtetter return if the writers actually decide upon bringing back more obscure characters.

    What a wonderfully Muppety Christmas episode! Like the best episodes of the show, it blended a classic Muppet feel with the modern elements. I was so into what was going on that the commercial breaks felt extra long and annoying.

    Anyone else want to reach into the TV and hug Piggy at the end? Her being sad watching Kermit and Denise just broke my heart. I can relate to what she's going through, so those parts really spoke to me. I wonder if this will motivate Piggy to show Kermit she can change to win him back. It feels like the next logical step.

    Speaking of Kermit and Piggy, their scene was so sweet! The promo made it seem like they'd get back together or kiss or something, but what we got felt just right. They need to keep taking their time getting back together and show other sitcoms how it's supposed to be done. :):mad:

    The part where everyone gives Yolanda the presents they bought, knowing she rigged secret santa, was the second best sweet moment. I wasn't sure what direction the show would take when they found out, but what they did do just sums up the Muppets perfectly.

    I wish we could've seen the skit for Mindy they came up with. I was laughing just watching Rizzo and Pepe act it out in those outfits.

    Sam finally got a kiss from Janice! A kiss on the cheek, but he'll take it any day. :attitude: I have mixed feelings about the two of them as a couple, but it's been a nice, unexpected storyline. Hopefully this won't be abandoned when the show comes back from its break. It should receive some sort of conclusion.

    The whole group singing together near the end is the kind of scene I've been waiting for since the show began! Hopefully they'll do this type of thing at least once a season. It just doesn't feel right to go too long without the whole gang singing.

    February feels like forever from now! The whole reboot thing had me a bit nervous, but after the last few episodes I'm not as worried. The reviews all across the net have been much more positive lately, and I'm sure the people in charge notice this. As long as the show stays like this I think it can have a nice run. :)

    Loved it! My favorite parts were all of Uncle Deadly's lines, Rizzo and Pepe helping Gonzo pitching the elves sketch to Mindy and all the Muppets singing together. What's better than all the Muppets singing Christmas songs? I also loved Yolanda in this, she can be as devious as Rizzo, but here, she had a good reason for doing what she did. And Beauregard was there at the end! But where in the world is Walter? I hoped that I'd see him in this episode, but maybe we'll see him in February. You know, with Miss Piggy and Fozzie's conversation, they both helped each other out, even though Miss Piggy didn't know it. Looks like Kermit and Piggy being together again (no pun intended).
    At least Sam did get a kiss from Janice, I did "aww" at that moment, who else did?

    Overall, a wonderful way to end this half of the show with the Muppets!

    I'm excited for what's to come after the winter break,I think Jennifer Lawrence and Sofia Vergara are set to make guest appearances,both great actresses.It'll be really interesting to see how Lawrence plays off the muppets considering she usually doesn't do comedy,or at least not comedy as light as the Muppets.


    Yes,I am loving Yolanda,Jennifer Buscher was one of the best things that could have happened to the show,it's amazing that one performer can be so versatile.

    Ugh, really? They have to shoehorn the most overrated actress and the most obnoxious actress onto this show? I'm surprised they haven't forced Neil Patrick Harris and Steve Carell into guest appearances yet.

    Actually Bob Kushell was indeed a co-writer on this episode. Also, all of the first ten episodes were written and filmed before Kushell's departure

    Now that is how you make a muppet show, seriously everything was there, man it felt just like an episode of TMS, this and last week's episode are probably some of the best the muppets have done in years. The Kermit and Miss Piggy chat was nice, the Fozzie Bear plot was pretty funny, they used Mindy Kaling well, and there was a nice comedy to heartwarming scenes balance, I hope this is what we'll be seeing from now on, and while I am a fan of some of the earlier episodes, I feel that this, and last week's Gonzo episode really hit it's stride, they already teased a commercial about the show returning February 2, and I really hope its the same or even better than what the show has evolved into, the perfect muppet show.

    Been a few episodes. They can be a good gag structure to use, to give some of the workplace comedy aspect of the premise. But it could easily be overused, so I'm glad it's not in every episode. I would t mind seeing it again.

    That reminds me: it was good to see Kermit refer to this gig as putting in a show with friends. Because ultimately that's what the Muppets are all about at their core.

    This show keeps getting better! Yes, Fozzie--Becky may not want to date you anymore, but that doesn't mean you can't still be good friends (that's the case with me and my ex).

    I'm sort of surprised that the end credits were cut short--I was expecting Sam to faint after that kiss!

    Yeah. I'm still waiting to see Walter. IMDB.com has stated that Peter Linz would perform Walter in this. Hopefully they haven't forgotten about him or anything.

    Oh, the commercial breaks were fine compared to how long they were during "A Charlie Brown Christmas/Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales" the other night. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! But, I agree that can get annoying when you get interested into what's going on. Hopefully this will get a DVD release and we won't have that problem.

    Personally I was never a fan of Muppets fainting. I thought that scene was okay the way it was.

    Yeah. I remember a fan fic someone on this forum wrote years ago about Kermit finally letting Piggy know he's had enough which caused them to break up. So later in the story she tried to back off and they got back together. Seems like this may be happening on this show. I'm trying to think of the name of the story or the link to the site. I'd like to look at that one again, now that some of these things are really happening. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, let me know.

    - Kermit and Piggy need to get back together, and I can see that happening by the season finale. She finally called him Kermie!
    - How come Lew Zealand, Crazy Harry, and Beauregard haven't had any dialogue? What are their roles with Miss Piggy Tonight?
    - Same goes with Andy and Randy. Are we sure that they aren't just Whatnot pigs?
    - Bring back Link Hogthrob and have him hook up with Denise
    - The show could use a few more female characters like Mildred Huxtetter

    Overall, great episode. Possibly the best one yet.

    Again, it's not the first time in this series. But still a good moment.


    I was wondering about that too. Heck, most of the time we just saw one of the two and this is the first ep where they showed them together, so they could be just generic pigs. But if they are Andy and Randy, they definitely should've had some speaking parts.

    Gosh, we need a Denise smiley along with the Uncle Deadly smiley. But anyway, I was thinking about that. If Kermit does break up with Denise and get back with Miss Piggy, I could see him still being friends with Denise and having her around in future Muppet projects even after this show ends. Piggy's jealousy of Denise would make some interesting story lines. Though like you mentioned I could see her hooking up with Link or maybe another one of the Muppets. You never know.
