The Muppets (S01E06) “Ex-factor”

Review: Denise is back in this episode (for the first time after her appearance in the pilot) and it’s her birthday. Kermit doesn’t know what to get her and Miss Piggy tries to ‘help’ him find the perfect gift. But of course, she is still Kermit’s ex and gets back at him by including Piggy and Kermit’s song in the present of Denise (without Denise knowing of course).

In the other storyline, Kristin Chenoweth agrees to perform with Electric Mayhem on the anniversary party of Floyd’s parents. But on their way there, small arguments between the band members turn into one big fight. That’s when the band realizes that they never had such problems without Kristin and they leave her on the side of the road (in the desert).

I didn’t like this episode as much as I liked the other ones. I missed the real funny moments, although it had some lines that made me laugh out loud. I didn’t like Denise in the pilot, I liked her a little more now, but she’s still not a strong character. I think it is odd that she was not in more episodes besides the pilot, so I really think we have to get to know her more. Maybe she’ll get more interesting then.

Rating: 7/10
