Sesame Street season 40

I wanted to like season 40, but there are many reasons not to:
1. wayyyyy tooo many "celebrities" my son doesn't know these people and they don't add anything to the show, Jimmy Fallon episode was unwatchable, he is terrible and not funny nor educational. Ziggy (?) Marley singing was great, but a flip card through about 8 celebrities singing too was unsuccessful. Looks to me like the Sesame Street crew is star struck and wanting to meet as many celebrities as possible. Stupid.
2. Overdoing it on the theme. Segments are too long, overcomplicated and concentrate too much on unresolved adult issues. Let's help our children understand the basics on how to formulate an opinion before we start telling them what opinion to have.
3. No muppets! where's the count and the real bert and ernie, oscar the grouch? Barely in season 40 or reconstructed in claymation form.
4. Abby segment totally awful, long unintelligible.
5. Where's the people? Kids need consistency in their lives, Maria, Luis, Alan were adults who weren't trying to act cool using slang or street talk, they are wonderfully neutral and relatable for kids, and they are missing.

Hate this season. won't show my son anymore new years of Sesame Street - we'll stick to the old episodes. Sesame Street season 40 is totally irrelevant and it makes me sad.

even though I'm 16, I still love Sesame Street. I <3 Elmo.

yeah, I'm 16, but I still watch it because its fun and entertaining. after 40 years, the fun has not decreased or stopped, it never ends. :)
the character of S.S. teaches us the good from bad, in some way it changes you. and being in love with the show, it still has those kid years in you, and they'll never end.
Sesame Street still rocks and you guys over there better keep on rocking!
love you guys!!!!
never stop entertaining or teaching us!!!

Bad Season

We're HUGE Sesame Street fans in our house, in fact, it's the only tv show I'll let my 2 year old daughter watch.

But she won't watch season 40.... They seem to have changed the format, so the content is longer, much more in-depth, with fewer little segments to break up the theme. So if the theme is birds, you'd better REALLY like birds, cause you're gonna get a whole episode on them. And now they have this 3D animated program in the middle of each show called Abby's Flying Fairy School - my daughter starts crying and yeling "no no no no no no no" when it comes on (and she LOVES Abby!!).

I'd buy older seasons if you're thinking about buying Sesame Street... We just bought all of Season 35 and it's great!!!!!
