That's awesome. Got to be my all time favourite show. Been watching it since I was a kid and seen the first 10 through and through and it still makes me laugh and still get things I never got before.

My flatmate just showed me a newspaper article where it seems someone's tried that 'gluing fluff onto weasels and selling them as poodles' trick that Fat Tony tried.

My favourite Simpsons line:

Ice Delivery Man: You've got to start charging more than a dollar a bag. We lost four more men on this expedition!
Apu: If you can think of a better way to get ice, I'd like to hear it.

It's just so fucking absurd.

Definitely. Season 10 is definitely the worst season of the first 10 but it has some real classics. Like the Naval Reserve one, just amazing.

I can't even bear to watch the tripe they put on now.

When I see it, I just download another of the first 9 seasons and the pain fades away.

I downloaded season 23 cos I hadn't seen anything past 10.
It was actually fucking brilliant. Homer doesn't fuck every single plan up, but he's still Homer. Marge has more story lines and one-liners. Bart is a little more cunning and even the bullies show their colours.
I laughed at least twice during the crappier episodes.

If you sit back and enjoy it for what it is, you'll appreciate it.
Stop you're fucking whinging and accept change. CHANGE.

There's too little time in this world. I have about 10 boxsets I have to get through and I still haven't watched The Wire, I can't actually afford to watch anything that isn't guaranteed quality if I want to get through all the good shit in life before inevitable death from arse cancer.

And they keep making more of it every year!

The sad life of the privileged white man.

I have seen so many episodes past season 10, and it is an undeniable fact that something was lost past that timeline. The show has lost its heart and is as empty and vapid as Family Guy, which also used to have some sort of quality in the earlier seasons before everything went crap.

Even the people making the Simpsons hate it. Every single actor on that show has admitted that they only do it for the money now, the guy who plays mister Burns has threatened to quit the show because he hates it so much that he wants more money to even consider doing it anymore, and when they did a survey on the favorite episodes of everyone making the Simpsons, not a single one from past 2000 made it on that list.

I actually fairly recently had the perfect opportunity to compare pre-shitty and post-shitty Simpsons, as Swedish television aired a bunch of old Simpsons episodes in anticipation for the new season. Most all of the old ones were great. Great set-ups, great stories, great character arcs, and a great big beating heart at its center.

Then the new season aired. It felt like I was watching a watered down version of Family Guy. Stuff just happened. That was it. That's all I can say to describe the new season. Stuff happens, and it's poorly written. Actually, that's not all there is. Here's the actual structure:

Stuff happens, it's poorly written, and CULTURAL REFERENCEEEEEEES

You forgot the episodes based entirely around guest stars.

Jesus, looking through that list of memorable season 2-10 moments makes me want to watch all my favorite episodes again. I remember every single one of them

Those were always great, since they were non-canonical and as such the writers could do whatever the fuck they wanted for the sake of humour without heed for consequence, consistency or logic.

I remember when the Simpsons didn't feel the need to be progressive. Like that gun episode in season 9 where they tried to portray guns in a neutral way. Make that episode today and the conclusion would probably be "Guns bad, don't do guns"

Watching the earlier seasons has a much nicer feel to it. I agree, they had more heart. I don't agree with the character profiles though. Homer was much, much more of a retard before season 11. Though it suited him. That's who Home-Do'hg is. To call him hard working though...
Bart isn't a loser and if he's a sidekick then who the hell is he following?
Also Lisa is far less insufferable now. She even cheats and fails in the later seasons.

Who ever wrote those points doesn't seem to have watched post season 10.

Yeah Homer was never a hard working father. I love the lines:

"He's trying to take away my right to raise a smart alecky, disobedient son."

"Son if you don't like your job you don't quit, you just go in every day and do it really half arsed. That's the American way."

He was just a lazy oaf, portraying the "average American" somewhat.

I was skeptical about the whole seasons 1 to 10 being waaaay better, then me and my bro made a habit of watching a couple whenever he visits. They're fucking genius.

Watched the episode where it is revealed Jebediah Springfield was a pirate and I about died laughing.

Yeah it's not that the new episodes are bad (though they're not good either)it's that the old seasons were so fucking good that they eclipse the newer eps.

Plus the animation in the newer seasons is terrible. I've been drinking tho so what do I know
