And it's nostalgia with the extra half point
6 March 2016 | by mbkfoxSee all my reviews

I would give this episode a 7.5, which I generously round up to an 8... since IMDb makes you choose a round number. The story still lacks substance, the jokes are still not funny. When Pepe says "You know when we do things without a plan and they usually turn out great?" "Yea!" "Yea, deez eez not one of dem times." Those aren't funny lines, those are sitcom lines. Blah.

But, once again, a select few jokes made the chuckle meter, the story was interesting, albeit still empty of fullness which I can't quite explain, and I'm a sucker for two things that made this episode get higher ratings that it deserved: Muppet slapstick humor and nostalgia. This episode had both. Piggy made me laugh out loud when she fell on her face, second time in 2 consecutive episodes, it's dumb but if I enjoy it I gotta be honest. When she fell to ceiling it had the same effect. It was a slapstick-filled night. As for nostalgia, bringing back Veterinarians Hospital with it's Up Late reality twist was amazing and a perfect tribute, as was hearing the Swedish Chef's signature song and Dr. Honeydew and Beaker. These bits saved the show.

The Pizza sub plot added no excitement, though it was told properly, I guess. The puns were as missed as Gonzo. And finally, the ending was made out to be something we've never seen before, except for the fact that it felt like the 1,000,000th time they've played that angle. Who's The Boss once again. Not sure if this show will last with the mainstreamers, but as a lifelong fan I had a fun time despite the issues. Also Janice's snuggling was original Muppet- humor cute and Willie Nelson is a great performer.
