Sesame Street, season 41 - my thoughts @ 03:41 pm

I heard the term "drop it like it's hot" on Sesame Street. Oh how times have changed...

On the other hand, the current season has a new segment, Super Grover 2.0, which is one of the best things they've done in years.

Also, brand-new Abby's Flying Fairy School segments. That was introduced in season 40, and it's much better than I thought it'd be, with lots of jokes and references the target audience wouldn't even remotely get. Not to mention, I love the characters. There's Abby of course, but also Blogg, who is a hybrid fairy-troll, and Gonnigan, who tends to disappear briefly once per episode (hence his name).

They should really spin that off into it's own show and air it on Sprout. I think it'd do really well.

I like Elmo, but I could really do without Elmo's World, and I turn the channel once it comes on.

But yeah, there's my brief synopsis.

I keep hearing that Sesame Street is finally getting good again. I may have to watch one of these days. I admit, I have not seen one since the big H. Ross Parrot introduction.

I feel so guilty that I haven't seen any episodes this season yet. For such a big Street fan that's pretty inexcusable.

In my defense Sesame is aired at inconvienent times for me (often too early). They used to air it multiple times a day back when it and Mr. Rogers were the only game in town. Now they air it once and that's it because of the overcrowded PBS kid show market. :(

Heh, yeah. It's on at 8 AM here and ONLY 8 AM.

I myself am usually asleep at that time, and if I'm not, I'm probably watching the Fraggle Rock episodes I've recorded on the DVR.
