one of the all-time great sf shows.

For my money, the high water mark for hard Science Fiction was the Muppet Show’s ‘”Pigs In Space”. Nothing will ever top its drama, character development, science fidelity, or special effects.

    I remember this when it came out and how I had a wee braingasm as a 9 year old. The Muppet Show and Star Wars were my two favorite things. THis explains a lot.

    The Muppet Show was such a big hit with the adult crowd that – being shown on Tuesday nights back then – the weekly meeting of the volunteer fire department was re-scheduled back a half-hour so the guys (some in their 70s) could still watch the Muppet Show.

    Those were the days growing up in tiny-town Cow Hampshire.

    Tune in last week and miss next week’s episode of…. PIGS IN SPAAAAAACE!

    It was quality stuff, that. Growing up really was a series of easter-eggs; for example, discovering the etymology of Doctor Strangepork added an extra frisson of delight to an already wonderful Sellers/Kubrick vehicle.

    The boxed set of the first season of The Muppet Show is the best DVD investment I’ve made in years.

    Alice Cooper singing “Welcome To My Nightmare” with a stage full of muppets…

    Oh noes!!!(Statues of) [s]topless[/s] NEKKID wimmins on a children’s show!! We need to call CPS on any parent that would allow their chillens to view such a depraved thing!

    Younglings these days would implode if they were suddenly exposed to what I (we?) grew up watching. The sad part is, the parents of said younglings DID grow up watching the same stuff.
