    Kermie's Girl (ushy-gushy fanfic)

    Chapter 166: Good Things Clifford plinked around on his bass. The tune that had run so clearly through his head this morning was still circling in his brain, but the chorus has stalled when he tried to get it down on paper. He played through the first bars, half-humming the...

    Muppet Halloween: That's the Spirit!

    I'm wishing this was something new, but it's not. Maybe soon!

    Kermie's Girl (ushy-gushy fanfic)

    I miss you all so much. Not having the time to write is like having my arm amputated--or both arms amputated--or my heart removed. But I'm still here--just not writing at the moment because of grad school. I still have nine weeks of teaching school left (ugh), and although I "walk" with gown...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 105 - Walk the Swine

    If Kermit gets back together with Piggy because she can't function without him--that's not love. That's enablement. Piggy doesn't need pity-dating. She a warm, wonderful, sexy, amazing wo-pig and she deserves someone who can see THAT--not someone who stays with her out of a sense of...

    Dearheart, you're brilliant. That was shockingly well-said. Your a description made me think of comic books and the way we get used to a character drawn by a particular artist in a particular style and we begin to think of that representation as the "real" character. This always strikes me as...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 105 - Walk the Swine

    Once again, Piggy was portrayed as shallow and self-aggrandizing, and Kermit was an insecure, ineffectual producer. He did NOT lead Piggy in the right direction--he nagged her, he nagged AT her and his willingness to lie about what caused Piggy's behavior left him little moral ground to stand...

    No, no--Piggy knows Zoot's name. ZOOT doesn't remember his own name....

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 104 - Pig Out

    I am the oldest fan on this board right now. I watched the original show, and I watch the reruns before many of you were born. It was never a children show. Never. There's not been a thing that came out with the muppets that I haven't watched and didn't support. I have t-shirts older than most...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 104 - Pig Out

    Steve's Kermit has always been more comfortable being a jerk. Kermit could be snide and frequently eruptrws into arm-waving hysteria on TMS, but it was always tempered by a sweetness that was part of his character. Was. When Steve took over, things took a turn for the mean. I'm not saying...

    I'm feeling a bit like Sam here. I WANT to like this show. I do. But I can't enjoy the things that are worthwhile--some of which were mentioned above by other posters--because I'm too upset about Kermit acting like a complete jerk. Not just a jerk--a total what-Statler-said. Someone said in...

    Fozzie seemed more like himself, sweet but gullible. Kermit was a grouchy, dictatorial fussbudget who uses and manipulates those he claims are his friends so he can have a show. He has become a parody of himself, exactly what the tabloid press would say he was like. I don't like him like this.

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    I don't think this is for kids. I don't think the driving force behind these plot lines is children. I think they are aiming for the disaffected young adult crowd, hence the references to substance abuse--both legal and illegal--the mean-spirited edge and the allusion to Kermit...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    The reason many new shows take a while to find their footing is because the actors are not used to each other and they don't know what their characters are like quite yet--they are still trying on their character's selves and testing their interactions. In Star Trek, nobody expected Kirk and...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    Duke, you have yet to make one credible claim for why you think the show is good or entertaining. If you have something to counter with, jump in. Watching this show is a little like having your friend call you up and tell you how excited they are about their new job--in a brothel.

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    I was not enthusiastic, but I final watched episode 3. The part at the end between Fozzie and Kermit was nicer than anything I've seen so far on "the muppets" which is not saying much. It did make me hope (faintly) that the real Kermit might be somewhere close by, just waiting for an...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    You act as though it is impossible to find the old spirit of the muppets portrayed in new and appealing ways that would attract audiences. Just because the current projects haven't managed to do it doesn't mean it can't be done. (Who the heck do they think they are--Jerry Abrams, the demigod...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    I have to say-again--that I am sad to find you uncivil in your expression of your opinion. Being rude rarely convinces anyone. Denying reality rarely convinces, either. Kermit is different. He is mean. He is shallow. He is dismissive of old friends and calculatingly manipulative to others...

    Your Thoughts: The Muppets Season 1 Episode 102 - Hostile Makeover

    And yes, Big Mean Carl as the receptionist (sortof) is genius level. I am not saying the show was completely without merit. But it was flawed so deeply that it was hard to enjoy the parts that were good--like Big Mean Carl and the renewed vigor of The Newsman. If ANYONE could take on Bobo...
