been watchin the simpsons since i was 5... i remember when it aired on wednesdays... as a fan who's been watchin for the majority of my life alll i can say is end it and syndicate it already.
this show has gone from blue collar/dysfunctional family based humor to trying to cater to the liberal elitist/hipster
someone like me who has grown up on this show can still follow the jokes but new viewers or the less educated would rather watch crap like family guy buecause they can't keep up with all the jokes like they woulda been able to in the mid 90's
...I've been hearing people say that the show isn't as funny as it used to be for years now, but never knew what they meant. If the change is as big as you say, then I don't blame people for complaining, even if I still find the show funny at times (Though there was a remark about black people and Obama in a recent episode that was stupid and pointless to say, even if one of the current writers is a House Negro)
i was talking to my friend the other day about the simpsons and i said to him they should do something to switch it up. i was thinking they could have a show called springfield and it incorporates all of the characters from the show and not just the simpsons family.
...You mean kinda like this?:
"22 Short Films About Springfield" is the twenty-first episode of The Simpsons' seventh season, which originally aired on April 14, 1996...The episode looks into the lives of other Springfield residents in a series of linked stories and originated from the end segment of the earlier episode "The Front". The episode is a loose parody of Pulp Fiction, which gave the staff the idea of a possible spin-off from The Simpsons.
...Makes sense to me, especially when you consider how much they've fleshed even the most minor/background characters over the years
