    Muppets Now Episode 5 - The I.T. Factor

    Again I think the high point of the episode was Pepe's game show. I think they should do a lot more of that.

    Muppets Now Episode 3 - Getting Testy

    I haven't seen the second episode yet. But overall I think the most boring parts are either with Chef or Piggy. The first episode was definitely a trainwreck.

    Muppets Now Episode 3 - Getting Testy

    I have to say I liked the new Muppet Labs segment, especially once the pizza guy yells "Breadsticks" in slow motion, I think I started laughing through parts of the episode. I rather enjoyed that and Pepe's game show. That was probably the highlight of the show. Swedish Chef and Piggy still need...

    Thanks a lot guys. Now I have to do this.

    Muppets Now Episode 1 - Due Date (Pilot)

    MWoO, are you thinking what I'm thinking? I think we should resurrect Jerry Juhl from the dead. Just have a zombie in charge of the scripts.

    Muppets Now Episode 1 - Due Date (Pilot)

    Okay, just got done watching Episode 1. And....remember that Uncle Deadly said something about "owning your flaws"? Yeah, I think after this one I think the team needs to own a LOT of them. Because in my opinion, the episode turned out to be like the Swedish Chef's plantain dish. So let me...

    Video: “Muppets Now” Official Trailer

    Oh, I didn't know that. Well I guess Bunsen doesn't have to know everything. It would make more sense then. I just hope the Muppets return to form in some way, try not to rely too much on pop culture cliches. Don't get me wrong, I hope the show goes well. I'm just right now understandably...

    Video: “Muppets Now” Official Trailer

    I never said they shouldn't allow contemporary guest stars. They've always done that. What I'm STATING however is they're kinda trying too hard to change their image. The Muppets had always been a little unconventional to the mainstream crowd. But now it seems like they're trying to appease too...

    Video: “Muppets Now” Official Trailer

    Just the nature and tone of it. It feels like everything's being stretched into one small room. The original Muppet Show formatted in a more Vaudevillian style of comedy, much like what variety shows at the time were doing. That was the whole point of that show; to have Kermit try to run a...

    Video: “Muppets Now” Official Trailer

    *Long sigh* Okay, so I just saw the trailer to the new "Muppets Now", and boy was I glad about being reluctant. Don't get me wrong, I've been wanting some new Muppet content for years now; they need to get back in the groove somehow. But somehow, I think they're trying too hard to get "with it."...

    Did Jim Henson smoke cigarettes or take drugs?

    It depends on the individual.

    Did Jim Henson smoke cigarettes or take drugs?

    Huh? Now I don't follow. I think the main purpose of this topic is just whether or not Jim was a cigarette smoker, not what he died from.
  13. Prof Bunsen

    Did Jim Henson smoke cigarettes or take drugs?

    No, I was just merely stating that not everybody contracts lung cancer from smoking and that Jim didn't die from lung cancer. Maybe he did and he quit by the 1970s, I really don't know. But at any rate, I know my reply probably came off as harsh, and I apologize about that. I didn't mean to...

    Best Muppet Movie

    Who I daresay was able to fool most of the Muppets until the very end of the movie! I swear, I must've been facepalming quite a few times when I rented that movie for the first time.

    Best Muppet Movie

    If I were to rank all of them: 1. GMC 2. TMM 3. MTI 4. MTM 5. MFS 6. MCC 7. M2011 8. MMW 9. Everything else from the Dark Ages that I haven't really paid too much attention to

    Did Jim Henson smoke cigarettes or take drugs?

    Jim Henson didn't die from lung cancer, though. He died from a streptococcal infection exacerbated by pneumonia. Also keep in mind you shouldn't throw the baby in with the bathwater in that everyone who smokes will get lung cancer or emphysema. That only happens long-term, and even then many...

    Remembering Caroll Spinney (December 26, 1933-December 8, 2019)

    Part of my childhood died inside of me.... He will always be the Big Bird to me.

    Jim Lewis and Steve Whitmire start interactive Youtube/Discord channel CAVE-IN

    Yeah, I like Steve. I'm glad he decided to do something new and exciting post-Muppets. I also like Age of Resistance, too, don't get me wrong. I'm really getting into that show. But as I said before, even if Steve was no longer working with the Muppets, he could always do his own projects and if...

    When will The Muppet Show Seasons 4-5 and Muppets Tonight arrive on DVD?

    Broadcasting rights for the most part, because the TV syndicate utilizes all the copyrights on whatever content it wants to stream online. However, it also greatly depends on where you are. Broadcasting rights have their own regulations here in the U.S. compared to, say, BBC.
