Simspons at an end?

Post by Pararaptor on Wed Oct 05, 2011 3:22 am

So The Simpsons is in a spot of bother now that it can no longer be produced without budget cuts that halve the voice actors' salaries.
Those VAs who voice the Simpsons family aren't too keen on having their yearly income reduced to just $4 million, & are threatening to leave the show if their pay is cut.

It's a stalemate. If the VAs walk the show's cancellation will be brought eons forward, but if they stay the studio will go under.

Not the first time they've done this. Last time Fox pathetically threatened to replace them and then caved in. But they're really being greedy bastards. Especially since some of them only voice one or two character as oppose to the tons voiced by other people.

I stopped watching at season 14 and the show started slowly getting worse during season 11 I think

The last good thing to come out of The Simpsons was The Simpsons movie and that was good but not amazing (and they'd been working it for such a long time, well before the new seasons)

About bloody time. Honestly they should have ended the show once the movie was over with.

Eh, they can be greedy bastards for all I care. They're stuck doing a job they fucking hate, they should squeeze every penny out of that bitch.

Finally. It's been limping on two broken legs for over 10 seasons now.

I'd like to imagine the VAs are aware of the declining popularity and quality of the show's writing and they're figuring they squeeze it for all it's worth before it buckles and they finally move on.

That's what I'd do. Apart from Hank Azaria, none of them really have any chops anywhere else.

I'd get a nice nest egg prepared for retirement and do the odd cameo or VA job if it came.
