Episode 5008 - A Recipe for Dance
HBO Premiere: Saturday January 4, 2020

Chris and Rudy have trouble learning the dance moves in Nina's dance class so they sneak out and leave. They realize that they shouldn't give up so they practice and work together to learn the dance pattern and go back to join dance class.

This episode features an all new street story, a new Big Bird's Road Trip (Denver, Colorado), Cookie's Crumby Pictures ("The Hungry Games") and a new Elmo's World ("Patterns").

All I could think of while watching this episode was "These are talented individuals working on this show and they are being 100% wasted on this."

Okay, I actually forgot how Jen's Zoe is . . . still needing work. I'm sure Shane will agree that the song at the end of the street story was about as engaging and memorable as a wall . . . again, they don't have to write a song about everything in every episode.

Big Bird's Road Trip was perhaps the most obviously-lazily chromakeyed one yet - like it looked like an editing job done on a low-budget, public-access show.

Nice to see a Crumby Picture again (and one of my favorites too), despite them cutting out perhaps one of the most effective somewhat-jokey lines from the bit ("Ugh! Why you so finicky, Finicky?")

Oddly enough, I liked Chris's shirt, though.

My issue with the song is that it tried having its cake and eating it too with the lessons of the street story - patterns and "don't give up." And they just mish-moshed them into one song and it didn't work for me.

Nothing too exciting in this episode. But this episode was a nice excuse to see Nina in a sleeveless shirt.
