Before I start, I know I could just stop watching, but I still like keeping up with The Simpsons episodes despite the negativity of this post.
What do you think is the problem with the newer episodes (or why did you stop watching)? I still watch some of the episodes, but a good episode is maybe once or twice a season (surprisingly some of them are better the second time on FXX.)
New episodes are plagued with guest stars (the worst being the Elon Musk episode where the whole episode is about him), entire episodes that are nonsubtle homages to shows like Homeland(the show has made references before but you could still enjoy the episode if you've never seen the show/movie they are referencing. Though I did like the 24 episode), Homer gets a new job (these use to be fun, but now are annoying and he's so much stupider and mean sprited too),and episodes that you don't know what it is leading to (The Simpsons go to a museum or other small trip then something happens, then something else and it takes forever to get to the conflict/the point of the episode). These are just a few of the problems. Please add your own.
