    Thank you so much! There are lots of other stories....

    Let's Give the FanFics a Comeback!

    It's true--it was a regular little community of writers and readers. I miss that. I'm darting back in a bit, still planning to finish. I hope everybody's still doing the same.

    I like the emotion in this--Kermit all banged around by the world because he's a nice guy, and Piggy there to make it all better. Very nice.

    Kermie's Girl (ushy-gushy fanfic)

    Chapter 167: Pretty Little Lies The groceries proved superfluous after all. They ordered in pizza—including one with peppered flies on it that everyone else studiously avoided. Once the pizzas had arrived, Kermit waited until Piggy went into the kitchen for more napkins. Assured that...

    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...

    The Muppets Episode 5 - 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...

    Lovely turn of phrase, my dear.

    The Muppets Episode 5 - Walk the Swine

    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...

    The Muppets Episode 5 - 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...

    The Muppets Episode 4 - 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...

    The Muppets Episode 4 - 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...

    The Muppets Episode 4 - Pig Out

    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...

    The Muppets Episode 4 - Pig Out

    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.

    The Muppets Episode 2 - 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...

    The Muppets Episode 2 - 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...

    The Muppets Episode 2 - 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.
