The Simpsons (1989)
Oh How the Mighty Have Fallen...
The Simpsons, this is a show that has overcome so many odds, and still has been one of the best shows to even hit a television. The Simpsons was the funniest, most original show you could find on TV. I used to watch the show at LEAST 5 times a day, I always needed my daily Simpson's buzz. The best of seasons were from 4 to 8, that is when they were at their funniest and most creative. But as the seasons went on, the show started to lose it's edge.
Now going to season 17, I don't think I can bear to watch the show anymore. It hurts me so much to see a show that I have been watching my whole life, crumble down like Michael Jackson's empire. The last season was absolutely horrendous, it was the worst season yet! I do admit, though, there were a few good episodes, like when Homer smuggled drugs from Canada... but this season, the bad episodes overcame the good episodes. They have been starting to run out of idea's since season 12, but it definitely showed on this season. They need to get some of their best writers back, people like Conan O'Brien, or Bill Oakley, they were some of the best writers that the show has ever seen. Now that most of their people have gone, the show has crumbled in to nothing.
It is so sad to see such a classic fall like this, but there is still hope... today, I just bought season 6 on DVD, and I can now enjoy what was once some of the funniest episodes ever, anytime I want. I will still always love the classic episodes, and I will still watch the new episodes (because I am a hardcore Simpson's fan), but the show should end now, it's getting to the point where it is unbearable to watch. Please Groening, just let it go, you are meddling with a classic.
Overall, I would give the show: ********/10 stars, the show may have a lot of bad episodes, but there are too many good ones to ruin this show for me.
Please end it...
