    I think the only ones that care are the million moms group. It's not like he was drinking alcohol. He was having a milkshake!!!

    I asked because I am pretty sure it's illegal to bring underaged kids into bars. I just wanted to be sure that the Muppets weren't suddenly being irresponsible toward cute little frog kids. Also I am preeeeety sure Robin is still a kid.
    and what makes you think robin's not 5 anymore? I mean ELMO has been 3 for YEARS! XD
    Also I don't watch the simpsons because I hate it. that show also needs to be cancelled but it's not likely to happen either. >_<

    Well ratings stayed the same again at that 0.8 demo, there was an uptick in viewership, but not much to make a difference, at least it didn't sink any lower, but next week the show's against The Voice ugh, hoping it can at least maintain the same numbers or even go up, maybe that could be enough for ABC to renew it for a bridge series, probably not, but the fact that it's a brand makes me a little more optimistic about it's chances.

    But at some point you have to suspend disbelief. Maybe it's illegal to bring an underage kid into a bar? Maybe so but it's the Muppets! I'm pretty sure it would be illegal for a dog to own and operate a tavern. I'm almost positive that that establishment would be shut down by the board of health if rats (Rizzo and Yolanda) were hanging out there. I just don't think that Robin being in the bar is something to be critical of.

    Honestly, the concept of Robin being taken to a bar where they serve milkshakes is a lot less disturbing than, say, Scooter cage dancing at a goth bar.

    There were so many things wrong with that scene.

    It's not. It's illegal to serve them alcohol. Laws might vary by state/city, and establishments can set their own rules, but a lot of places allow children accompanied by adults.

    Plus it could be more like a Applebee's or something.

    In that same scene isn't Robin a waiter at her night club / bar? Concept isn't that new to the Muppets.

    You all do understand the whole idea of the Night club scene was what life would be like if Kermit had not been born Right?

    Yes, but it was still rather disturbing and felt very out of place in a Muppet movie.

    Did you HAVE to bring that up? You know how hard it is to remove that image from your mind once it enters?!

    the whole thing with poor robin in the bar made no sense in that film. WHERE were robin's parents?!

  16. My review of "Little Green Lie":

    For starters, I think it's pretty cool to show Robin again, along with Camilla and Foo Foo. Pretty great classic comebacks. This show definitely has everything going good from here on out.

    I thought it was a pretty crazy episode when Kermit and Piggy pretended to be back together since Robin's parents split, but I thought it was pretty bad when the news came and accidently revealed the truth to Robin. But Robin was really understanding about this because he truly believed Kermit and Piggy were definitely meant to be. Deep down, I kinda feel the same way, especially since they were together longer than Kermit and Denise was. I saw as the 1st season is coming to an end, Kermit and Piggy are beginning to see that they can't deny the fact that they still have feelings for each other. And I think it's pretty cool. Also, I do hope Denise will understand and still be friends with Kermit and Piggy after this. :):mad:

    Also, in the B-story, I'm also happy that Gonzo and Camilla are still friends since their split, which I don't think Pepe and Rizzo were happy with. But I saw it was pretty impossible for them to replace their best friend with Sam, Big Mean Carl, and Chip for picking up dates, which ended pretty badly. I also liked the ending with Camilla and a couple of her girlfriends having a girl's night when the guys were having their own night out, which ends with a pillow fight which ends up with Camilla losing her feathers. So embarrassing. :concern::cluck:

    One bit of the episode I found really entertaining was the Friendly Feud sketch with the Electric Mayhem Band. I thought it was funny and strange at the same time when the band was trying to figure the popular flavor of ice cream, which was in fact vanilla. Me, my favorite flavors will always be chocolate and chocolate-chip cookie dough. I could tell Uncle Deadly wasn't having fun with it as he thought "I'm surrounded by idiots". To be honest, I don't think the Electric Mayhem are a group of idiots, just different from the rest of us in their own way. It was pretty funny, though. :D:sing::flirt::cool::halo:

    All in all, as we are almost there for the two-part season finale, I just wanna say what a crazy ride it's been for the first season. I REALLY do hope we'll see the show again for season 2. That would rully be awesome! Fer shur! :fanatic::flirt:

    I've been lax in giving my opinion of every episode individually but overall the adult content doesn't bother me. What does bother me is how hit and miss the writing is for the characters. Piggy, Rizzo/Pepe, and Animal are written the strongest, Kermit and Fozzie are touch and go, and Scooter? I don't know him anymore. And I love Chip, but does anybody else feel that Dave was cast as him because he had the lowest workload of all the performers?
