I love The Muppet Show. Always have. But there's moments on that show are just too painful to watch again. And I thought this'd be a good time to point out some real 'ouch' scenes they've done over the course of 5 years. First off, close to half of the first season is somewhat painful, but you can't really point out a whole lot since they're just starting. But in the second season, there was something in the Rich Little episode I didn't like... and that was when he was impersonating Fozzie Bear, Statler, Kermit and Piggy. When I went to watch that a second time, I fast-fowarded it. Another moment in TMS history that I can't watch is most of the Star Wars episode (except for Six String Orchestra) but the most painful part of that was the 'gargling' of Mark and Angus. A third episode I'd like to point out is the Diana Ross episode, but that is really because of Ross' acting abilities; and yeah, I get it, she's a singer. But she just looked so uncomfortable with the Muppets. And fourth... Brooke Shields. Granted, she's been insulted already by Tom Cruise for other things, but that's not why here. Yes she is young, but she couldn't sing her way out of warm jello, and like Ross, she didn't fit well with the Muppets. And finally, Gene Kelly. Something about him talking to the Muppets made it seem like he did NOT want to be there... as if he's too good for the Muppets. IDK... What do you guys think? Any episodes or sketches you find un able?
