    I'm a big fan of The Simpsons, but i watched a couple of episodes the other day and i thought they were awful. They're not even the shadow of what they used to be. Homer used to be stupidly funny, now he's just plain stupid. Bart used to be a brat, now it seems like his best friend is Lisa. What do you think? Should the show be put out of its misery already?

    The Simpsons has been running so long now, I lost track over 8 years ago. They've been on air since 89. I have to give them their props though for staying afloat so long. I wonder how long they will ultimately go. Bart should be about 50 now! lol

    I quit watching the Simpson, hmm maybe 10 years ago?
    Whenever it was when they killed off Ned's wife. I remember the next season just being terrible, and that was it for me.
    Never went back.

    They just ran out of ideas for the show.

    Here's all you need to know:



    The show should have ended over a decade ago. I've seen a few episodes and compared to the older stuff it just doesn't work anymore. Feels way too forced and phoning it in. At least South Park has the gimmick of being able to be made in like a week to keep up with current events.

    The Simpsons quality has been declining. I don't really watch it anymore. I wish fox (or someone else) would bring back Futurama.

    It has been years since I used to watch the Simpsons and I think the show is running out of ideas. It is amazing how it lasted this long which I cannot feel any spark from this show anymore. It is like they are purposely trying to compete with Family Guy.

    I'm no different than the rest. I used to watch it but stopped because while it was still kind of entertaining, I just never laughed anymore or got into it. I think they are stretching it out way too far.

    I like South Park a lot more, and used to like Family Guy a lot before I got into SP.

    They did bring back Futurama and it was pretty bad. Be careful what you wish for.

    This of course doesn't stop me from wishing Mission Hill had more than one season, but alas.

    This one of the few "modern X is so much worse" arguments that I wholeheartedly agree with. The Simpsons used to be socially relevant, satirical, and intelligent. Now, they seem to rely on cheap and oftentimes childish humor. Sad indeed.

    Wow. I had no idea the Simpsons were still on the air. That is one hell of a run. I would imagine it has had some ups and downs during that long period.

    The last time I got to watch The Simpsons, I was only around 7 or 8 yrs. old that time, so I pretty much forgot about the whole story. I also can't seem to catch it on cable. Well, shows normally retire after several seasons, and considering how long they have been airing, I guess it's not surprising that the quality of the show would suffer. Their creative juices gets scarce already.

    For 350+ episodes and nearly two decades, nothing of significance has changed in the Simpsons..They were funny earlier,but it is becoming stupid nowadays and no longer realistic,unless there is a revamp in characters,i don't see a way they can make an impacct again.

    South Park stole their shine, and Family Guy and American Dad are just so good that The Simpson are watered don now.

    I really think The Simpsons' prime was around seasons 4 to 9.

    LOL, how stupid can it get? It's a special sort of humor, not for everyone, but after airing for so many years what can we expect?
