Okay, I’ll be honest, I love The Muppets. I have since I was a child. Miss Piggy in particular was my hero: I loved her glamour and piquant fabulosity.
Although it had a rocky pilot, I really enjoyed The Muppets reboot a couple of years ago. It had only two seasons, unfortunately, but I thought it was genuinely entertaining. And Miss Piggy, in all her marvelousness, reflected the concerns of a modern woman who had loved and lost, had chosen career over family, and had never truly found balance but couldn’t forget the audience she yet had to satisfy.
Even though it doesn’t necessarily deal with all that deep Piggy stuff I just mentioned, this is one of my very favorite scenes from the recent series.
You are welcome.
