It has come to my attention that the Simpsons is being constantly insulted, and that many of you have lost your once profound respect of the show. For shame people. If it weren't for The Simpsons you wouldn't have your new fangled clones like "Family Guy" and "American Dad". When you sit down at night, and watch Peter Griffin sit on his fat can, remember, Homer's a** was there first.
I totally agree. I can't help but feel that the glory days of The Simpsons are over, you've gotta' give Groening credit for having The Simpsons last this long. Sure, I don't feel like the new Simpsons eps are anywhere near as good as vintage episodes, they are still entertaining and funny.
Now I love Family Guy, and find it hilarious, but it doesn't come anywhere near The Simpsons in terms of which show is best IMO. Even the biggest fan of Family Guy would have to admit that, while funny, it is basically made up of random crap. Funny crap, but crap nonetheless. Family Guy shamelessly satires EVERYTHING in an entertainingly crude way, and is very shallow. The Simpsons, on the other hand, is diverse and layered and the humour within it is, for want of a better term, much more 'sophisticated'.
You may scoff at that claim, but it isn't until you really study some of the episodes that you realise how full of subtle 'in jokes' and allusions are made. And that really is more sophisticated than Stewie saying "This is worse than that time when [insert funny incident involving well known celebrity here] and then flicking to a shot of said funny incident involving well known celebrity.
This sudden outburst of simpsons loyalty is thanks to the fact that we got to study it in class and I realised just how filled with political comments etc it is.
thanks for clearing that up for me.
where,s duff man gone then i thought he was great.
Duffman was in a new episode I watched last night. In fact there were multiple Duffmen. The episode was about Marge and Homer giving Marriage Counselling to a baseball star, Buck, and his pop singer wife, Tabitha.
