That means it falls within the first six seasons. It may actually be good!

I'm actually rather impressed, the newer seasons (post-movie) have actually been, well, damn good.

They hit the bottom of the barrel, and decided to actually write funny things instead of writing ABOUT funny things.

If it's anything like his movies, they'll have to split it up into six episodes due to time constraints.

This actually sounds funny and like a familiar Simpsons episode format.

Every time I turn on the Simpsons now I do find myself laughing.

I wrote a similar script in the 90's. It involved an IT guy who as having a tough time with his girlfriend so they see a therapist who hypnotizes him and then has a heart attack.

In addition it will start out with some hilarity, will make a 180 and get smugly serious, then finish with the viewer crying tears of boredom.

And his wife and daughters will be guest voices.

I hope they make lots of relevant-in-1990 pop culture references.

What happened a few years ago when the simpsons stopped being funny and then started being good again? The one episode that stood out as the worst imo is the one where Homer gets attacked by the bear and he does that stupid tag on his ear, screams, jumps all over. It's not funny. Then he does it again for no reason.

The problem I have with the newer ones is that Bart isn't evil and Homer never does anything crazy anymore. Back in the heyday Homer would start off escaping a crazed texan and then opening a farm and making a new addictive tobacco. The most recent episode, Lisa tries gambling and makes a lot of money but ends up losing it all except for what she started with. I think the creators have come to love their animated family so much they don't really want to do anything bad to them anymore.

So they did probably did this plot 3 times already?

They already covered the Homer being hypnotized, the hypnotist dies and Homer being stuck in his youth (and remembering finding Smither's father's corpse) maybe 6 seasons ago by my guess.
I wonder if Judd's name might get tacked onto the credits of that one now. They may as well do it over again, they've already been back to New York.

"That's not a question Professor."

You hit the nail on the head with what's easily been the worst change in the series. Gradually since around season 11-12 there have been more and more drawn out jokes about how Homer is so dumb he will repeatedly harm himself or something similar. Every character has been pushed in a way that alienates much of the old fanbase. At the same time the characterizations just get thrown out the window when the writers get topical or want to shoehorn in a guest star. I still give the show a chance when I can but between flanderization and SNL-grade attempts at humor the Simpsons has really lost it's touch.

I love that guy.

What this means is that there are gonna be a hell of a lot of unemployed "Simpsons" writer/producers when the show goes off the air shortly, and they need to get their heads up Judd Apatow's ass as FAST AS POSSIBLE if they're gonna all those un-produced screenplays sold.
 
2012-11-21 04:04:25 PM
So that's what he's been doing...
 
2012-11-21 05:00:10 PM
Sadly, it was Maude Flanders-centric.
 
2012-11-21 05:58:40 PM
You mean back when the Simpsons was funny?
 
2012-11-21 06:13:48 PM
Wake me when John Swartzwelder comes back.

Or Conan O'Brien.

Or the reanimated corpse of Phil Hartman .

I'm glad SOMEONE said it. I guess the Springfield Nuclear Plant will have a meltdown because of a stolen red Swingline stapler?
