I have to say I haven't watched new episodes in at least two years as they've been going downhill for a while now.

Why is this not in the Film/TV/Gaming forum, eh, eh? Disorganisation like this is the thin end of the wedge: earthquakes, floods, dogs and cats living together...

There's a forum for that?

Yeah, that was a classic one! I wonder how they allowed it to get so bad.

I'd love to know that too. The one before was just stupid. They were trying to hard to be funny but it was just lame.
I don't know how it got such a good reception http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Kent_A ... #Reception
If that was "ending the season" on a high note, I dread to see the rest.
The jokes were all rubbish. And Ludacriss was in it for no apparent reason except just to have him in it.

The Simpson's has been shit for years now, IMO. So, I was pleasantly surprised to find some good yucks in the movie. Based on that, it seems that the writers still have the ability to write good things. Not sure why none of them seem to make it into the TV show. My 2 cents.
Everything's all loopty-loops and flibertyjibit.

All my knowledge of America and it's people comes from The Simpsons, I expect it's pretty true to life.

I enjoyed the Simpsons ride at Universal LA, but I haven't actually sat through an episode in ages.

Do you know what it was like? They had jokes, and I recognised they were jokes, but they weren't funny. It was like someone telling a crap joke and then turning to everyone, with their hands out, palm upwards, "Eh? Eh? C'mon!"

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean Animavore. I thought perhaps it was just because it had become so familiar to me, but I recently saw an episode from about three years ago which I missed and was howling. brilliant gag after brilliant gag non-stop from the word go, it's like they've planed the show or something.

The Simpsons jumped their particular shark when they had Rupert Murdoch on as a guest star, I still cringe when I think about the fawning mess they concocted for that one. :(

Tonight's offering was Midnight Towboy, Homer's conversation with Louie a classic.

Louie: I don’t call in sick, I work when I want to.
Homer: Sometimes you want to work?


Homer: Wow, you make people miserable and there's nothing they can do about it! Just like God."

Since we don't get the new episodes here, I don't really know what's wrong with them. Somehow I feel content in my ignorance.
