You know what's jumped the shark? "Simpsons Sucks Now, They Used To Be Better" arguments.

We get it already, the show is not as good as it used to be. But you know what? Simpsons Seasons ~2-8 (2-5, 3-7, depending on your opinion) are arguably some of the best TV ever created. Period, end of sentence. Not best comedy, not best animation, not "best TV before the Soprano's launched the new television cable drama Golden Age". Best. TV. Ever.

So OK, The Simpsons wasn't able to sustain world class television quality for 24 farking years. THE HORROR! Hell we all jerk ourselves off when Breaking Bad gives us 6 episodes in an 18 month time frame.

If you don't like New Simpsons then fine, don't watch it. Treasure the first 180-200 episodes or so and ignore the rest. Just stop whipping this "Simpsons Sucks" horse like it's going to somehow make the show better.

MagicBoris: That's, like, three shark jumps in a row. I'm not sure whether it is bad or not, because it sounds awesome...

Try not to jump any sharks on your way through the parking lot!

Also unimpressed

that is one funny 30 minutes (well 22-26 depending) of television right there.  Classic Lucy, and the show generally holds up as funny.

/Lucy was over well before my time and yet - so many stand out episodes.

IdBeCrazyIf: frepnog: /South Park has more "funny" in its first two seasons than Simpsons has had in its entire run. I AM NOT TROLLING.

not sure what that means but it made me laugh...  but truth is that Trey Parker is a comedic farking genius.  EVERY South Park episode is not amazing, but when he is firing on all cylinders NO ONE is funnier.  No one can skewer reality like he can.

I'm not convinced that the creator's intent is to inspire nerd-rage or not, but there are several things that are simply wrong about that picture.  Namely, at least one of the things shown to be not funny in the latter seasons actually occurred in the "good' seasons, the politics of the Simpsons has always been pro-gay rights, and he farking misspelled "loser."  Isn't it ironic?  Don't you think?

"Looser" is the hallmark of derp, signifying purity.

My favorite episode: Homer at the Bat and I don't even like baseball.

Darth_Lukecash: So really. Live in the past. The Simpsons don't.

They have their moments, but there really is only so much one can do given the character setup. Time to just end on a high note and walk off quietly into the sunset.
