The Simpsons


#607

The Simpsons haven’t been funny since Season 10.


#608

What an incredible run. The show has changed a lot and the quality has no doubt waned, but it is still a top rater for Fox and cultural icon.


#609

I suppose FOX is still unable or unwilling to take a gamble on a new animated series if they continue to renew The Simpsons…


#610

ever. Just my opinion.


#611

What do you think is funny @littlegezzybear?


#612

As I’ve probably said before, the show really should’ve ended when the movie was released.

But I’m sure the gazillions The Simpsons makes in repeats and merchandising is a major reason why it’s still going.


#613

Recently, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Younger, slightly old shows like Community and Parks & Recreation, and older shows like Fawlty Towers, Black Books and The IT Crowd. I always enjoy Get Smart and Hogan’s Heroes. As a kid I liked the old style cartoons like The Flinstones, Huckleberry Hound and Top Cat.


#614

Comedy is subjective and 30+ seasons prove that to be true.


#615

Maybe The Simpsons will finally end when the actor who does the voice of Homer or Marge, Bart or Lisa dies?


#616

There are thousands of people around the world who do the voices perfectly… I’m sure they would find someone to replace them if it ever came to that.


#617

This would be extremely disrespectful and I doubt the rest of the main cast or producers would agree to it.


#618

A bit old, but…


#619

#620

This will end up making the next FXX marathon only like 99.9% complete…

BTW I wish 7mate could do a Simpsons marathon rather than the Olympics in 2020!


#621

It’s ridiculous. Are they going to remove the episode from iTunes as well?


#623

Showrunner Al Jean said in an interview that Apu could make a comeback with big changes.
