dittybopper: GreenAdder: Is this like the Caine-Hackman theory?

I'd watch A Bridge Too Far again.

Though the film gave short-shrift to the actual communications problems, which were more complex than simply not having the right crystals.

Oh, and I'm wearing the t-shirt of the band I'm going to go see.

wildstarr: HighOnCraic: So "The Family Guy" will get the same deal shortly afterwards. . .

Ummm...The Family Guy has already been syndicated on cable for years.  Where have you been?

Sorry, that was a joke about The Family Guy being somewhat derivative of The Simpsons.  I can't be the first one to make a joke like that...

biyaaatci: DanZero: In before

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.

the Simpsons were, to me, just never all that funny.  I am prime Simpsons demographic - I was a kid when they originally debuted on the Tracy Ullman show.  I remember the original skits when they aired on that show.  I watched the show when it first aired as its own thing.

It was just never all that funny to me.  From time to time, it would illicit a chuckle, but nothing serious and I can seriously not recall more than a few "stand-out" episodes - and I have seen TONS of the episodes up until probably 2000 or so when I said to myself "why am I watching this?  I don't really care for the show".

I remember when the Simpsons movie came out thinking "ok, Groening.  Here is your chance - show me I'm wrong, make me a fan".

And guys - the Simpsons movie is a pile of unmitigated shiat.  The ONLY funny thing was the "spider-pig" bit - and that was just a stupid throwaway line.

I have the same problem with Futurama.  It just isn't funny.  I have seen most episodes of Futurama.  NOT ONE episode stands out as memorable beyond the one with the sad dog waiting for Frye  - and that was pretty farking far from funny and was the only memorable part of the episode.  I have absolutely no idea what the rest of that episode is about - and I have seen it at least three times.

Am I alone in this?

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