The episode, on the other hand, is pretty miserable.

I hate to turn into one of those "The Simpsons is losing it" guys, but I think I'm finally starting to see it that way. :?

They like me are hoping for some truly great Simpsons episodes like the ones in season six, Bart versus Australia anyone?

yes, but in the past year or so of watching it every week (we'll say the last 52 weeks of viewing) how much of percantage would you say sucked?

You guys/gals remind me of those people who bitched about Chuck Austen every month, and yet continued to buy his run on X-Men anyway.

And every month, people would say 'gee, see the latest sales figures? Why is Austen's X-men in the top 10 every month? its so bad?"


buy watching it and then complaining about it almost every damn week, you are telling Fox "Yeah! Give me more of this shit!"

Too bad the opening was the funniest thing in the whole half-hour.

God, why do they even try to do Marge-centric episodes anymore?

They could always pull out of the slump, that's why fans hang in there.

A new creative team, a few inspired ideas, and it's back.

I think he refers to the fact that you always make a distinction that you don't read 'comics', you read graphic novels and trades.

so, no one can answer the question of how many 'awesome' episodes they have seen of The Simpsons since the beginning of the year?

2. The last two episodes of last season(Flanders moves, and Bart goes to Catholic school). Both, especially the latter, belong in the top fifty episodes of all time. The second might be top twenty.

Havn't watched more than one or two episodes in the last 5 years.

Say what you will, but if faily guy ever reaches a 10th season, it'll be at least 20 times then the simpsons is right now.

But, if anyone is like me, it's because there is still that jem of an episode out there. Besides, even the bad episodes of Simpsons are still a hell of a lot better than most other stuff on TV.

That said, the past couple of seasons of Simpsons have for the most part, been pretty good. Unlike the streak of a couple of years where it kinda sucked except for the halloween episode. But, now the past couple of years, the Halloween episodes have been the weak point.

But to me, the only episodes of Simpsons I really, REALLY couldn't be bothered to watch again were the one where Homer manages a Country singer (because I really don't like Country Music), the one where they go to Alcatraz, and another one where the ending kinda devolved to them going on about Canada (though I do love the episode where they go to Canada to get cheap drugs).

Man... they kinda limped through that finale. Still, this was one of the better seasons they've done this decade.

i'd just like to say, i was someone who realized the simpsons were shit 5 years ago, and gave them up. so, i'm sure there are many.

i really haven't watched much of the simpsons in the last few years. got difficult to watch when the episodes were sub-par, and i've since adjusted to not watching it. plus, i can watch the re-runs on DVD and be happy with last decade's goodness.

I loved the couch/zombie gags, too. Fantastic.

As much as I like Mandy Moore, the rest of the episode was mediocre at best. Same with the Ricky Gervais episode they reran before it.

I totally agree about the Catholic school episode. One of the best ever. Just sad that the quality is so middling for most of them.

And it wasn't as great as the Catholic School ep., but the one that aired right before, where Flanders moves, was pretty good too. Especially the first half.
