Sheesh. I was even tempted to use the celebrity guest appearances as another example, in contrast to the ones on Family Guy which are entirely humor based and not "Wow! Lookie look! We're the Simpson's! And we have guest celebrities even though we're just a cartoon, (ahem, the most successful cartoon in history)!" It is ridiculously self-congratulatory.

    Season nine had episodes like The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson, and the one where carnies take over the Simpson house, those are classic episodes.

    Season ten had the episode with Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin, cringe central.

    As far funny goes, I never said the Simpson's wasn't funny. I like the part where Homer called Bart a "train wreck" while Bart looked at him in open-mouthed astonishment. Classic Simpson's - the kind that I miss.

    Eh, celebrity guest appearances are fine as long as they're not a main selling point of the episode, as they almost always are now. They can be used to comedic affect.

    The James Taylor appearance, I always liked that part even before I knew who he was.

    The worst episode of The Simpsons is better than the best episode of Family Guy.

    The Big Lebowski and anything with Hobbits.

    I cannot abide either.

    I once attempted to watch Eastenders on PBS but it was soooo bad. I hate to pick on the British, but Dr. Who is also terrible.

    Yeah it's why I decided long ago to watch hardly any television whatsoever.

    Fortunately the future of viewing is in pick and choose at any time, starting with the invention of the internet.

    - Breaking Bad. I can see why people love it 'cause it's a well written greek tragedy and all but the characters just don't appeal to me. I don't know why yet I have rabid fans jumping down my throat insisting that I'm stupid and don't understand it. What's not to get? It wasn't created by David Lynch, it's pretty straightforward. It just doesn't affect me.

    - The Walking Dead lacked good characters, too. One-dimensional, the whole lot of them.

    - Personally, I love British comedies. The Office (UK) is far superior to The Office (US) which is incredibly dull in comparison.

    - I also really dislike Breakfast at Tiffany's. Was I supposed to be romanced or something? It bored me and the main character is too annoying. I didn't care for her or the idiot that loved her.
