Waldorf was right on when he said the Oscars would be boring. I didn't like the Oscars this year, although I'm glad for the people who won in their categories.
Actually, I'm definitely not a fan of The Land of Gorch skits, and I'm definitely not a fan of Saturday Night Live anyway. There were some things I definitely did not like about It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, and there were definitely some very awful things I didn't like on Muppets Tonight (and I have seen all 22 episodes, by the way) I haven't seen any of The Jim Henson Hour just yet, so I'm not sure what subversive and perversive stuff might have been snuck in there. I knew that the "H" word was bad when I was a child and it still is and I still don't like hearing it now. And there are other countries besides the USA that considers it a swear word, by the way. I've also seen some of Kermit's appearances on some late night TV talk shows just because I love seeing just about any new appearance of the Muppets. However, I don't care at all for some of the things Kermit's said on these appearances. Just because the Muppets have done crass, foul humor and innuendos in the past doesn't mean they have to keep it doing it now. And it never makes it right.So...I take it youa re not a fan of The Land of Gorch, Very Merry Muppet Christmas, Muppets Tonight and especially the Jim Henson Hour? The Muppets have *ALWAYS* snuck in violence, crass inuendo, etc. It's just now that you're older you pick up on it.
You do realize Jim Henson made Sam the Eagle as a spoof on the uptight conservatives in America right? He's making fun of all the people that get offended all the time about every little thing, that's why it's brilliant.GonzoLeaper said:(There's a reason Sam the American Eagle's one of my favorite Muppets!)
Heheheheh. Habitual.beaker said:A while ago on Tough Pigs there was a feature about a new episode of Bear in the Big Blue House that used every foul word you can think of, and I didn't think that was right. So I mean I do think there are boundaries and tact.
Also, for those of you that can't stand swearing... Repeat this sentence out loud: I went to the pet shop across from the dam, only I couldn't hear the owener as a helicopter was whizzing by. I wanted to buy a shi tzu dog, but my money fell onto the asphault. The guy was an habitual liar anyways.
I think I liked my old country better, even tho everyone has a cockney accent.
Over here we had a show called Rainbow which apparently shot on an episode backstage full of sexual innundo. That was a kids show, but it was never aired cos they were just messing round. I think that's all this Bear thing will have beenBeaker said:A while ago on Tough Pigs there was a feature about a new episode of Bear in the Big Blue House that used every foul word you can think of, and I didn't think that was right.
