  • The Simpsons, back in the early to mid 90's, was by far the greatest sitcom ever on TV

    The Simpsons, back in the early to mid 90's, was by far the greatest sitcom ever on TV. With strong jokes, humorous parodies, funny slapstick and wonderful plots it swept the nation by storm. For those who don't know, the Simpsons is about an American family called the Simpsons (hence the title) who live in the fictional town of Springfield. The father, Homer, is a beer bellied not so smart guy who works in the local nuclear power plant. His wife, Marge is a doting housewife and mother, and they have three kids, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. This show, back over a decade ago, stood out for two reasons. One, it was an animated sitcom (which was based mostly on reality, fantasy elements shown in typical cartoons appeared briefly) and two, the Simpsons was a dysfunctional family, except the volume was turned way up. Back in the 90's sitcoms involved families who were a strong unit and cared for each other and all that stuff, but the Simpsons were constantly having problems and such, always getting back together in the end, which was the theme of the show and what kept it on top. The prime of the show would be, in my opinion, around 1993-1997 (or the third through the sixth season,) After that, the show began to lose humorous edge, and by the early 2000 period, the show really began to fall apart. It is now 2006, and with even worse episodes being churned out, the show probably should of called it quits by 97 or 98 when it showed signs of age.moreless
  • Back to the Past

    Good episode really funny and good story line
  • In an episode set thirty years in the future, The Simpsons have a very bizzare set of problems.

    Yet another terrible episode. Painfully unfunny with no redeeming qualities at all. Is it possible that one of the greatest television series in history has finally run its course? With this episode, as well as the previous one, the answer seems to be yes. Hopefully the remaining episodes of the current season will help pull the show out of its current rut.
