One of the first times I felt old was around 2010. I was at a local hipster bar with some friends, and went to the bathroom. They always had an old 14" TV set with a movie playing on a table next to the sink in there, and that night it was that post-Henson Muppets Christmas movie, which I'd never seen.
So I was in there taking a piss and watchign some sequence where animal is literally doing a beer bong (of some kid friendly drink I'm sure, but whatever) and it was just empty and crass and depressing and completely missed what made the Muppets what they were.
This movie is like Animal doing a beer bong in a human face forever.
I kinda disagree, the Muppet Show did A LOT of crass humor and some of the guest stars were such topical pan flashes it’s kind of astounding. Henson is a secular saint because he died before he could do something cancellable.
