three seasons through a simpsons marathon

 

not sure where i'll stop

I just warched some old episodes. This show was so great. 

 

Wish they'd quit while they're (now) behind.

I watched a newer episode and laughed a few times. It's no worse than the American Dads and Bob's Burgers that are on these days.

It doesn't have the same blue caller charm as it once had. 

 

The later seasons tried to throw around morality with The Simpsons trying to take a stance on issues. 

 

Not sure if they still do...maybe I will give it another go.

Of course not, but it's still perfectly decent background noise ala Family Guy, American Dad, etc

 

I'm not looking for high art here

 

cue Matt and Josh outrage over the concept of watching a post-S10 episode

I go further up the seasons than Matt.....I think there are still some gems into the season 15-16 range.

 

And I love all the Halloween ones.   Well, most of them.

notes so far, three seasons in

-lisa episodes are underrated

-season 1 was a lot better than i expected, they figured shit out quick

-they were abusing celebrity guest stars a lot earlier than i thought

-krusty episodes are GOAT

-i'm pretty sure this show is responsible for every aspect of white western culture that sjws hate

I hear 11 is still considered the absolute worst to this day. That's impressive.

I agree with your assessment. 

 

Early Simpsons was a lot more conservative than people tend to remember. 

 

Also Krusty is fucking hilarious. Nothing better than a caricature of a drug fueled, failed comic. 

 

I heard somewhere Krusty was designed to be Homer whereas to paint a scenario where Bart thinks his dad is a moron but worships him in a Clown suit against his knowing. Really glad they scrapped that idea.

Every year in October I watch all the Treehouse of Horror episodes in order.  It's really getting long now...there's 29 of them!  I haven't started yet this year so I'm gonna have to cram several in a day.

 

The first 6 or 7 are just masterful.  They get worse as years go on, but there's still some good segments in later years.
