The Muppets premiered this week on ABC, with a promised “more adult” sensibility. That was enough to gain a boycott from One Million Moms, but not from three of Gabbing Geeks finest, Jenny, Jimmy and Tom. What did they think? See after the cut.
If you haven’t seen the Muppet’s pilot pitch, then you’re missing out. I didn’t think they could reel me back in, but they did! I mean – The Muppets are on a roll. After the resurgence of “The Muppets” in 2011, and then another successful hit with “The Muppets Most Wanted” in 2014, pigs, frogs, bears, and weirdos everywhere should rejoice, because the Muppets are back in full force.
We have the 10 min. pilot pitch after the break – and we are so excited to see this show in the fall. My favorite part of all of this – adult humor! Yes – it’s witty, it’s topical, and it’s Muppets. What more could you ask for?
This week on the podcast, the Gabbiest of Geeks discussed random stuff that happened at the San Diego Comic Con. I got name dropped twice. Once when Watson mistook a completely different Sy-Fy bit of programming that I had brought up from one Ryan was discussing. Ryan’s sounded very interesting, but I was discussing in the GG Bullpen a mini-series based on Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End that I may try to set up as a book club thing for here on the website. Stay tuned.
I also learned I am apparently in Hell. I wasn’t expecting that. I imagine that is what most people say when they find themselves there.
So, what should I discuss?
