The terrible episode of the show!
22 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is episode is just AWFUL! I mean, this episode is really trying to make Kermit and Miss Piggy look like a couple hitting a rough patch in their relationship, and not in a funny way like in the SpongeBob episode, "Rock a Bye Bivalve." And gosh, is this just so lacking of Statler and Waldorf, that a story like this needs, because without them to back it up, it just comes off as ugly and not fun, thanks to both both Kermit and Piggy acting like idiot jerks! There was also a very easy solution to their problem. Piggy, apologize to Kermit, tell him that you're sorry! That's all he wants! I know it would defeat the purpose of the episode, but the writers should not have made a story where there's such simple SOLUTION THAT NONE OF THE CHARACTERS EVER THINK OF! The episode does end with Miss Piggy getting rehired, but no, it doesn't make up for the episode's lack of comedy, terrible plot, Kermit's temper, and just all around frustration.
