Trivia

During his meeting with Kermit, Sam the Eagle is horrified because the "One Million Angry Parents Association" is protesting the show following Miss Piggy's wardrobe malfunction. This is a reference to the real life protest staged against this series by the group One Million Moms, which deemed the show "unsuitable for family viewing" months before it even started airing.

Improvement from last episode
9 February 2016 | by mbkfoxSee all my reviews

Last episode was a big disappointment, coming off of a series high in episode 10. It just lacked everything, most importantly, enjoyment. But episode 12 found the cutesy jokes back in a big way, from Piggy saying she prepares looking beautiful by waterboarding. "Waterboarding?" "I tell my waterboardist everything," to the simple corny line of "I just wish I could put all this tail stuff behind me."

The arc story lines still feel like a forced reset but I'm hoping it will sink back into its groove soon. The message of the show seemed a bit 10-15 years ago, as I think they were parodying Ellen's sitcom coming out with an episode about Miss Piggy wishing to reveal her tail on the show much to the sponsor's protests.

Oh, and I also loved the line about how, not only were the sponsors angry, but the Million Angry Parents Association were also outside demonstrating. The Muppets riff on everything, it's great!

I'ts not a complete click, but I'm hopeful it will find its groove before becoming another Muppets Tonight. Not confident, but hopeful.
