The Muppets: Pig Girls Don't Cry  
Don't do this to me! I love The Muppets as characters but so often the shows, the movies all fall a little flat. Now I adore Muppet's Treasure Island but many of the others just aren't as good and for me the pilot of the new show wasn't spectacular. It had it's funny moments but overall it was only cute.

It seemed like they were making the show similar to that of 30 Rocks in regard to it being a behind the scenes working of a TV show, in this case Miss Piggy's late night talk show, with those close up one-on-one interviews. It is a clever, albeit copied, idea for our Muppet friends. My issue is some of the jokes weren't all that funny.

But because it is Kermit and the gang, I want to continue to watch the show. I really love these guys and would be so sad if the show didn't do well. There should always be a place for Kermit and the gang, okay maybe not Miss Piggy - never liked her. I've loved these muppets since I was a kid and I want them to always have a place in our lives so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the show does better. *fingers crossed*

I really liked it. I thought most of the jokes were rather funny actually, especially the ones that had nothing to do with Miss Piggy. Of course I was a little concerned watching it with the kids, because the show description said it was a more "mature" Muppet show with adult issues, so I was afraid there'd be more relationship/sex stuff. There was a little but it wasn't too much in my opinion.

I'm with you, I don't like Piggy and never have and they always focus too much on her, but the rest of the characters are great and I even rather enjoyed the format. Maybe because I never watched 30 Rock or any other show of this style. I'm looking forward to more!

Maybe that is it. I mean I never really watched 30 Rock or The Office but I know the style of the shows and I know they are modeling it after 30 Rock. I just hope they don't get too dirty. I get why they are making it a little more mature because they hope to really pull in adults but too much means it will ruin the Muppets.

Oh my goodness. Thank you. Miss Piggy is so annoying and selfish. I've always hated her. I mean I've tolerated her mostly because Kermit is so adorable and for some reason loves her (sounds like these things are real) so she's just part of it but I wish writers would tone her down.

I love the Eagle... the censor. LOL He's funny, at least he was on the show.

The kids' favourites part?

"My life is a bacon-wrapped hell."

"You can't say hell."

I love the Eagle too, and the two old guys in the audience. I've always loved them.

That was the best part! I loved it too.

Statler and Waldorf. They are funny but I'm not a big fan.

I love Kermit, Beaker, Animal, Sam the Eagle, and I love Fozzie even though he's not really funny. I also like Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, his name makes me laugh, The Swedish Chef, and Rowlf the Dog.

I've always been a Muppets fan. *wink*

Thank you! I had forgotten their names. Some of the others too, like the Doctor and Rowlf. Looking forward to it again tonight. :D

Me too. :D

No prob. I know them... but some of the ones you don't see a lot I always forget like the big monster... maybe that is Sweetie? I don't remember.

Anyways, I'm gonna watch and see.

I saw a picture of Nathan Fillion with Fozzie and wondered if Nathan is going to be on... that could be fun.

I don't remember either. I can't say as I liked episode 2 so much. I don't think it was as good as the first one, but there were still a few laughs anyway. The swedish chef "someone cooking the pig?" was hilarious.

Cool, that would be awesome. I saw a picture of Clark Gregg with Kermit and so I wonder if he'll be on too. Hopefully they both will.

Oh that was funny. I love it.

Yes. I think some great guest stars could set them.

I didn't care for it at all. It didn't feel like the right format for The Muppets at all. I miss the good old days with the Muppet Show.

I hope it gets better but right now I'm just not sure about it. Need to watch the second episode to be sure.

I'll probably just leave it.
If I start hearing good things I'll consider giving it another shot.

Well, I liked the second episode more so maybe...
