That "direct podcast link" has video of some actual puppets.
When I subscribed to it in iTunes, it downloaded a bunch of 64kbps MP3 files...
The other page has a bunch of macradobemedia flash movies on it.
That just sits there with a big M logo on it forever.
I hate the internet.
The other link seems to have a full video archive.
I hope they get the funding for a video version, but I'd imagine that's highly unlikely.
It *is* a video series. Flashtastic, of course.
I'm a little irritated that you and I weren't even offered an audition...
Not only is it listening to puppets, but it's not even the original S&W actors voicing the puppets! What a cheat!
That doesn't really matter. The Muppets haven't really been up to snuff since Jim Henson stopped doing the good drugs. His death just accelerated their decline into irrelevant banality.
Anyway, aren't they just reviewing a bunch of Disney movies?
To be fair, at least one of the original voices is, um, dead...
Might still be an improvement.
They're both dead. Waldorf was Henson, and Statler was Richard Hunt, who also did, among others, Scooter and Beaker.
Blech. Someone shoot those writers STAT!Also the voices aren't anywhere close to the originals.
Although FWIW I see video in the first link you posted.
Peee-yoo. You weren't kidding about the writing.
I've been watching (yes, watching) the s&w show for the last year or so. Didn't realize there was an audio-only version. The last few episodes have been sub-par but the series has had its moments. In the earlier episodes they had "outtakes" if you wait past the credits; they haven't done that lately.
I view the episodes here (using Win2K/ie):
Works for me under Ubuntu...
It's the Charlie McCarthy show for a new era.
Pff, there's a grand old tradition... :-)
