I loved the Simpsons ever since 5th grade and I still do. My favorite characters are Rod and Todd Flanders. I love seeing them in the episodes their voice actors (Pamela hayden and Nancy Cartwright) do a fantastic job. How could anyone hate Ned's kids? My favorite out of the two is Rod because he's cute (he's the cutest character on the show!). Do not hate on my for liking HIM!
I'm about to get personal here
All my life I've been bullied in school for liking Rod and I don't like being called a freak. When I came home from school one day I sat in my room and cried. Even the teacher said something bad about me and all the kids in my class just laughed. I never told anyone about this. But I can say rod helped me out in a difficult time.
The new episodes of the show " the post season 23era" would be better if they did 3 simple things 1. make plots that are actually FUN no more episodes about Lisa in spelling bees or in math competitions 2. make more plots that are actually linear some episodes look like they just crammed random gags and events together together its a tv show not a freaking COMIC STRIP 3. stop over relying on pop culture references and celebrity guest ( It would be nice if the animation was better too but that probably wont change) Jeepers and people complain Spongebob Squarepants declined in quality if SB did decline in quality the Simpsons is doing way worse
Back in the day, this show used to be the king. The master of comedy. It had a bunch of cool plots, original epic moments, and hilarious moments and jokes that can leave you in stitches. The show was meant mainly for adults with references you would have to be 18 to find out.
But nowadays the show is protrayed as something entirely different. A tired, desperate, kid pandering show. Yes, a show that was once popular among adults (its target audience at the time) is pandering at kids! Futurama is even edgier and more appealing. The great seasons would make you not want to watch Fanily Guy, but the current stuff just makes Family Guy look amazing. Literally. This is why Family has way more syndication, free streaming and a much higher fan base than The Simpsons does nowadays. Thats how unappealing the new seasons are. Let me demonstrate an example of the timeline of the series's ratings in my point of view:
Seasons 1-3: A nice start to a great series.
Seasons 4-7: Even better. Great plots, hilarious and smart jokes, memorable moments, edgieness that really works, great dialogue, and original songs like Mr. Plow and Monorail. The adult humor and mocking of pop culture was brilliant as well.
Seasons 8-9: Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. These seasons have some really memorable episodes such as THOH VII, The Mysterious Voyage of Homer, You Only Move Twice, The City of NY vs Homer Simpson, THOH VIII and so on.
Season 10-13: These are kind of toned down compared to the previous seasons, but still had some pretty decent episodes.
Season 14: This is where The Simpsons started to go downhill quite a bit...
Seasons 15-17: Not very good
The Movie: Pretty good actually. It was pretty epic in some scenes and it had some of the funniest jokes from The Simpsons since the golden era.
Seasons 18-19: Not very good either....
Season 20: Bad. Very bad. They run out of good jokes and plots and resort to cheap little dull things that only appeal to 8 year olds. Seasons like this are no surprise many fans turned away from the series and put on Family Guy instead.
Seasons 21-25: Pretty bad aswell. Slightly better than season 20 with rare gems such as Homer the Whopper, The Devil Wears Nada, A Midsummers Nice Dream etc.
Season 26: Still bad. It have a few decent ones such THOH XXV, Futurama meets The Simpsons ,The Man Who Came To Be Dinner, and Blazed and Confused. But the rest of it sucked. The Family Guy crossover was horrific and just proves to you Family Guy is the king now despite being inspired by it and The Simpsons is dead.
A show that was once really great has now become very mediocre. If its an episode from its heyday, watch it, but if its a new episode, watch South Park ,Family Guy, American Dad, Rick and Morty, Adventure Time or Archer.
Why people love this show is beyond me, but there are 3 factors that just infuriate me about this abomination of a cartoon. 1. EVERYBODY'S A FUCKING ***!!!!!!! There is not one smart person in this show, so everybody can do whatever the hell they want and get away with it. In every cartoon I've seen in my entire lifetime, there's always someone who's the voice of reason; here, EVERYONE A FUCKING IDIOT!!!! 2. IT'S NOT FUCKING FUNNY!!!!!! The only joke I found amusing was SpiderPig and Harry Plopper, but other then that, nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!! The jokes are bland, overused and poorly executed; I just cringe whenever they try to make me laugh at something that's supposed to be funny when in fact, IT ISN'T!!!!!!!!! 3. For an animated show, the animation is FUCKING AWFUL!!!!! Why the fuck is every body yellow??!!! I love SpongeBob but I also love variety, which this show clearly lacks!!!! I should also not that the character designs are ugly as fuck!! I'm all for unique character designs but DAMN DO THIS CHARACTERS LOOK FUCKING HIDEOUS!!!!!!!!! I don't recommend this show, in the very least; any other show would be better than this FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT!!!!! I haven't seen Futurama made by the same creator, but after seeing this show, I'm not even a little fucking interested!! >:(
The Simpsons is one of the funniest shows on TV today. It is the one reason I look forward to Sunday night. Almost every episode has two independent plots which somehow meld together in the end for a finale that is nothing short of magnificent.
This show has become more irrelevant with every season renewal it gets. The jokes are unfunny zingers, you can throw away the first 15 minutes before it develops a plot, and the plots are just re-hashes of old material..

Hipsters who watch it ironically? Dorks who fake being "geeky"? kids who think it's "mature" JUST END IT ALREADY.
The Simpsons is perhaps the greatest animated series of all time, and has shown that cartoons aren't just for kids. As is probably already known, it is about a dysfunctional family in a suburban town named Springfield. It satirizes many things in pop culture, the USA and everyday life, and in addition to humour, provides genuinely touching moments. While it is true that The Simpsons today is nowhere near as great as it was in the 90's, it is still a very good show and has great moments, adapting to changing times while keeping the same basic feel. If The Simpsons was a celebrity, it is not a washup. I would compare it to Paul McCartney, who was once a music god, and while he is not as active as he was back in the day, he still has it. Overall, The Simpsons is still a great show, and shows that broadcast TV is still worth watching despite most of the masterpieces moving to cable. If it is cancelled, broadcast TV would go into a coma.
I'm telling ya, this show will never, ever end. It's so funny, so cool, and it's still family-oriented. FOX must really love this show, and will never cancel it, though it's clearly unknown when they will ever finish the show. Don't get me wrong, I really love this show, but it has been on since the 1980's.
This show is the best ever. Nothing will ever beat this. Family Guy doesn't beat this, SpongeBob doesn't beat this, this show is the best ever, and it's impossible to be a better show. But even though this show is the best show ever, there have been plenty of bad episodes. Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming, Old Yeller Belly, ugh, terrible episodes, a recent season has my worst episode of all time. But there are very few bad episodes, and this is a perfect show.
