Before I watch, I want to confirm -- this doesn't contain any spoilers, right?

I'm from Canada, YT blocked the content, I then fired up Hotspot Shield, and the link works fine for me. No problemo.

I would follow Kermit into a creepy egyptian death-cave if he insisted that I had to and spent fifteen minutes insisting that there was no time to explain why it is essential that I trust him and do as he says.

Not on ABC's watch.

I knew fucking Fozzie was behind the guy losing his ability to walk.

Fucker.

Muppets? I stopped watching after the first season.

I stopped watching the Muppet Show after the first couple of episodes. Is it something that's worth revisiting? Or should I wait a bit longer? I should note that realism is kind of important to me and unresolved plotlines kind of annoy me. From what I've seen on forums that chef guy (sorry, I'm on my phone and don't remember his name) never catches the chickens and the whole Kermit/Piggy thing is completely left up in the air.

I dunno, the writers seem to just be making it up as they go along. Like the whole Scooter/Skeeter thing is interesting in the flashbacks, but then in all the present-day scenes, she's suddenly gone, and they don't really seem to want to address that. And Sam The Eagle's motivations are 2-dimensional at best, utterly nonsensical at worst. Honestly, I would just save your time for Fraggle Rock, which actually examines the implications of its premises rather than just being a long stretch of Gonzo/Camilla will-they-or-won't-they.

OMG! Snuffleupagus is the smoke monster!

(Is the smoke monster even still a thing? I've never seen the show.)

Okay, I can see Rizzo the Rat as Ben Linus and Bobo the Bear (of course that bear has a name) as Hurley (but he's really more a Fozzie). Can you think of other Lost/Muppet correlations? Kermit and Jack, sure. Miss Piggy and Kate? That's kinda unfair to Miss Piggy, but there are too few female Muppets. Jacob and the Man in Black could be Statler & Waldorf, especially since the MIB is now disguised as Locke, who really looks like Waldorf...

If the last episodes of Lost saw the characters slowly replaced with Muppets, I would be very, very happy. (This of course leads to the great scene of Fonzie and Kermit on the beach, with Fonzie turning to Kermit and saying, "Do you know how much I want to kill you right now?")

Atom Eyes, the smoke monster turned out to be Doug Henning, who went back to performing harmlessly winsome magic in the '70s timeline after whats-her-guts hit the bomb with the rock.

Assuming this is the same video, I can watch it in Canada with no problem.

Disney reminds us they own both the muppets and ABC.

Next Miley Cyrus can play a visitor on V... Or Jonas Brothers suffer a FlashForward.

Or Jonas Brothers suffer a FlashForward.

How about a Flash Forward/FlashForward crossover?

Fonzie then gives a thumbs up to the camera, and says "Ayyyyyyyyyy".

Fozzie?

Everyone ever notice that Sam the Eagle and Stephen Colbert are never in the same room at the same time? Just an observation.

Oh great, another fucking alternate timeline.

Technically, no. ABC themselves uploaded this, but they added regional blocking, so it's not available everywhere.

Crazy Harry tells Kermit he's going to the Black Rock to get some more dynamite.

*WHOOOSH*

Flash-sideways to the Muppet Babies universe, where Kermit sits watching Rolf play the piano.

A missed opportunity to have a fake reveal when the writers are discussing. "So maybe we should move the scene where Kate realizes she's Sawyer's sister to Act III?"
posted by WCityMike at 9:52 PM on May 6, 2010


I think the best use of a flash-sideways we could see in a Muppets-LOST mashup would be a *whoosh* to a universe where Kermit says to Fozzie "Say, have you seen Jim anywhere?" and Fozzie goes, "Oh, he just went to grab some lunch." :(

Blocked in Australia. Anyone know where an alternate is?

Hilarious only because Damon and Carlton are terrible actors here.
posted by moviehawk at 5:39 AM on May 7, 2010


More Lost Muppetry. In which we discover that Carlton Cuse is fluent in Swedigibberish.

You get the feeling Cuse & Lindelof's next project will be as co-stars of a sitcom? At least they're not worse than "Two and a Half Men".
