Mike_LowELL: You're aware The Simpsons went off the air over a decade ago?


No, see that doesn't follow the correct thought process.

The Simpsons stop being funny in their 9th season. Your comment means they were funny in their 17th season.

The fact is, the Simpsons have been funny all along. You're just no longer in college, and all your co-workers are like "did you see what's on 60 minuets?" And you are all like- "Yeah,Benghazi!" Then they nod their heads in that shallow adult way, wile slowly raising their corporate entity coffee with the Italian size issues.

Somewhere, in the deep part of your chest, a small long haired voice cries out, "dude, we were gonna be cool, we were going to change the world with our hipness" But it Is fading, your youthful appreciation of Bart's rebellious antics, Lisa's rockin' liberalism, and Homers well meaning neglect and Marges home spun authoritarianism.

You are an adult now, you've put away your need for a crazy little town called Springfeild USA. The barnacles off age have encrusted the heart of your inner child. Somewhere in the distance, a coyote howls morn fully intones a funeral dirge for your optimism and exclaims in a legendary country voice, "I am coyote"

The fact is it is now a shadow of it's first 10 or so seasons.  This is not a hipster thing to say, not a view due to growing up, it's the simple truth.

Finding a bad episode used to be the exception.  Now it's the rule.

doczoidberg: It would be nice if The Simpsons were on farking Netflix.


It really would be nice if it were. However, I read an article a while ago that said Fox was looking at getting around a billion dollars for various syndication deals. So in light of that, I assume it'll be a pretty long time before the Simpsons shows up on Netflix.

If you're dumb enough to download without getting a vpn or proxy, you deserve what you get.

Or there was a significant change in the writing staff over the years, and the new team just doesn't have the comedy chops of the originals. For example, everyone remembers "Just don't look" from that early Halloween special not because it's "classic", but because it's funny and still resonates with fresh audiences. Try quoting anything from the last ten Treehouse of Horror episodes and see if anyone cares.

If current Simpsons is good enough for you, then great, go enjoy. But don't pretend it's still as good as it ever was. It's like reverse hipsterism where instead of only liking things before they were cool, you're embracing stuff that used to be cool but isn't any more. Scavenger hipsterism, you might call it.

Bslim: For the life of me I can't understand why the first 8 seasons of Simpsons isnt availavle on Hulu/Netflix.



Probably because they're the best seasons and they can still make money off their dvd sales?

Seriously, I was looking back at the old seasons and it's crazy how jam-packed with classic episodes they are.

FormlessOne: feckingmorons: You realize it is a cartoon.... right?

I do agree, though - I find it odd that a media outlet would use one of its flagship media offerings to illustrate how to steal media offerings, especially given their aggressive pursuit of those who steal media offerings.

It's like having a cop show you how to make meth.


Fox doesn't write The Simpsons.
The show has an unusual amount of creative control, independent from the network.

FlyingLizardOfDoom: ???


It was replaced by a show which merely looks like The Simpsons and has the same characters.  But The Simpsons went off the air a long time ago.
