    Simpsons should have ended years ago...

    I grew up watching the Simpsons and loved the show. I feel like the series should have ended when they did that movie back in 2007. Since then, the show has been on a downward spiral in my opinion and most episodes are just unwatchable and unenjoyable. Looking back to the older ones, they were better for comedy, character story, and general storytelling. Episodes these days are too worried about things being political and "modern" that they lost the heart and soul of the show.

    I still don't understand why they've kept the simpsons on air after so long, I recall really enojying the older episodes even when I was a kid (with my fav. being Skinner's Sense of Snow). I didn't enjoy any of the newer episodes even as they were being released, they just felt lazy and heartless. I couldn't tell you when the simpsons should have been just axed for good as I haven't seen many of the episodes, although this guy certainly has

    I hear modern Simpsons episodes referred to a "Zombie Simpsons". A search for that term should deliver some results regarding current Simpsons vs. the classics.

    I think the Simpsons instill around for the same reason spongebob and Family Guy are. They make the studios money. Most of the old we writers for shows that run that long leave, and the new writers try to keep the humor and "story" the same, but it doesnt always work out. And I'm pretty sure even now most of the writers on Simpons have lost all passion and drove to work on the show.
    Fox just needs to let the show die. But it's ine of the bugger shows, so they won't.

    But one thing I CAN about the Simpons is: At least they didnt kill off a main character fir a few episodes just to get people to talk about the show again like Family Guy did.

    I've never heard the phrase "Zombie Simpsons" before but that's a very accurate way of describing what the show has become

    I stopped watching Family Guy years ago as well so I didn't even hear about this. Shows how little I care and not being on social media probably helped avoid that. When did this happen and who did they kill off? I feel like this show went down the drain after a few seasons. I found it harder to find episodes I liked and just stopped watching. I enjoyed American Dad more for what it is worth but even that show got bad after awhile.

    They killed for Brian by having him hit by a car after Stewie destroyed his time machine.
    They got a new talking dog named Vinny, I think, who had a Bew york accent. He was there for 4 or 5 episodes before they brought Brian back. It was...really stupid.

    Once upon a time The Simpsons ruled the roost, and rightly so. It was in my opinion truly a phenomenal show. It is generally agreed on that the impostor Skinner (The Principal and the Pauper) episode was where the show did a nosedive. I wouldn't say it that specifically but The Simpsons was becoming weak as the 21st century approached.

    I haven't kept up with The Simpsons in a long time. I'd like to because I'm sure there are at least some good episodes. I just get completely turned off every time I hear about politics and agendas being pushed. It's true that The Simpsons always had politics in some way. For a long time only on rare occasions did we see real-world characters. I'd say that the show was always centre-left in the past. Politics became a central part of the storyline, but the important part is that they kept it within The Simpsons' universe which made it far more palatable.

    These days you get celebrity and politician appearances regularly and as they started to take the show in that direction the line between the fictional Springfield and real life really started to blur. As a child I enjoyed the many Simpsons characters, all of the locations and the overall lore. I watched the show for the ~20-minute escape to Springfield. Imagine if Donald Trump or Joe Biden started showing up in games like Halo or Mass Effect. It sounds absolutely bonkers. I know it makes far more sense for real-world cameo appearances in a cartoon comedy. However, to put it simply I gave up on The Simpsons when they made good comedy and a sound narrative secondary to political agendas and other shit I'd rather escape from.

    Apparently the animation is still done fairly traditionally but it's obviously done with graphics tablets. I'd be a hypocrite to knock that as digital art has been a recent interest of mine. The issue isn't that it looks bad. The issue, for me at least, is that it looks too good. It's really hard to explain.

    The year is 2045. As humanity has expanded its outreach into space following a global catastrophe induced by mutually assured destruction, activity continues in a small studio in a bombed-out section of what was once Los Angeles. Here the voices of every Simpsons voice actor and the brains of every Simpsons writer--all of them reduced to ashes in a nuclear holocaust--continually crank out episode after episode according to an AI program that runs independently of any life on the planet. Every weeknight it produces a new episode of a zombie cartoon for an audience that will never see it. The same yellow faces, now caricatured and melted by nuclear fire, flicker on the last few TV sets in America still functioning after the fall of the A-bombs.

    The people who say the Simpsons should have ended years ago have all been obliterated in atomic fire. Now there is nothing left: no internet, no cities, no civilization. Only the Simpsons. This is the way the world ends: in a haze of yellow faces.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him....
