    you can't watch the simpsons and not relive the awesomeness, so I wouldn't have changed.

    I'd agree that the Simpsons aren't as good anymore as they were in the first seasons ... Storylines are worse and revolve around individual quirks, and now it's more cheesy than satirical comedy.
    It's a pity that Futurama has been cancelled after only two seasons.

    Good question. Looks more like a Popular Culture and Type thread.

    Yeah, I understand and agree with you, buddy. Except I felt the downward spiral started around Season 9 -- when South Park exploded onto the scene. Sure, there were other cartoons during the early 90's (Ren & Stimpy, Beavis & Butthead), but nothing that could really compete on the Simpsons' level of pop culture examination and intelligent humor.

    But South Park had broad appeal while pushing things over the top (more profanity, more violence, etc.). Eventually, I think the writers of the Simpsons had to alter their style in order to appeal to the younger generation raised on South Park.

    The Simpsons is like the O Blood Type. It can influence just about any show with positive results. But when it receives inspiration from South Park (which is a pretty good show), it's an incompatible transfusion.

    There are only so many stories you can tell, and it seems (Judging from the episodes that are rehashes of older ones) that the Simpsons have exhausted that list.

    I love, love, LOVE the Simpsons! With all my heart. It is my absolute favorite cartoon, hands down.

    how is this in nf section? haha.
    but i completely agree. i think i had watched 350 or so episodes and knew them all by heart. [or however many episodes there were up until the movie came out]
    the movie was good. but after that the show seemed to have became so mediocre and washed up im just not feelin it anymore. the humor doesnt move me like it did. maybe it just comes with age?

    I have conflicting opinions of The Simpsons. On one hand, my Generation Y nostalgia infatuation loves that constant familiar presence of something I was an avid viewer of in my childhood. I feel so ingrained into the show, feeling as if I know most of the characters and their back stories that allow me to get some of the humor that my fly past a first time viewer.

    However, the other half that loathes most american television networks that continue to ring all the last droplets of water out of the proverbial towel of anything that once held promise on TV. Rather than realizing things have reached their peek creatively and letting them bow out with dignity, they continue to keep going and going until things reach such a level of mediocrity that it becomes an embarrassment to its own legacy. I'd rather just let the show go than watch it die the extricating death of surviving only on its own legacy.

    I've tryed to watch one of the recents episodes of The Simpson. Sometimes, it was really crappy. Sometimes enjoyable. But globally it' horribly edulcored.

    I have liked the episode with Lady Gaga though. http://wtso.net/movie/527-2322_Lisa_Goes_Gaga.html

    I never really liked the Simpsons. A few episodes / seasons here and there --- but for the most part I was and still am pretty apathetic to its existence.
