Discuss The Simpsons

Flogging this dead horse is a travesty. It was culturally significant, one of the great shows of all time...and it's long past its expiry date.

Can they not find the respect, the dignity, to stop this ongoing charade? And leave us with the memories of a phenomenon that changed things - although, not altogether for the better, as it foisted upon us a barrage of adult cartoons racing each other to the bottom of the barrel of crassness, shock, and toilet humor that bears little resemblance to the insightful satire and social commentary that The Simpsons originally brought to the table.

You, of course, may disagree, but you've got to give me bonus points for correctly using both "it's" and "its" in one sentence.

That's like asking studios to stop churning out inane blockbuster sequels. As long as there is an audience, The Simpsons will continue. It's a stable job for all involved, why give it up even if the quality has deteriorated? Also, it probably doesn't interfere with other projects that the cast wants to do.

During the Golden Era of the Simpsons - Season 1 to Season 8 and half of Season 9 - this was the best show ever.

Then it turned to garbage. Yet still way better than that abomination called Family Guy.

Right? I also started a similar thread on American Dad.

American Dad is so goddamn better than Family Guy.

I'll have to take your word for it. But, let me ask, how much does it take to be better than Family Guy?

Anything is better than Family Guy.

It should have ended like 15 years ago. The brilliance of the classic episodes from season 1-9 is on the lower end of the show's existence at this point. There's been more years of it being trash than quality. SMH.

I hate to say it as I've watched The Simpsons for years, but it's time to stop beating a dead horse and end the show. I like them to bring it full circle and have the family visit the Christmas play.

They could end it with Lisa becoming president.

It's really kind of sad to think that it has been bad (objectively speaking) longer than it was good (roughly 1991-1999) for most fans.

I'm sayin'. For the love of all that's sacred, it's high time - past time - they shut this thing down. Great shows knew when to call it a wrap. Dragging it out is tarnishing the show's legacy.
