Love it I still watch it and generally enjoy the newer episodes. to me it's still miles above a lot of shows. Problem is it feels to me like audiences now want the quick shock humour, throw out the character importance for the quickest most shocking jokes. but that kind of thing wears thin. the simpsons DOES do some shock jokes but there is generally still charm there and the characters are not so self centred for the sake of humour. I love it, die hard life long fan right here. I'm behind on the dvd collection though, and I'm trying to find Movie Marge for a good price. I need the last 2 dvds and the 20th.
I really dislike season 1 and season two I'm a bit more into it's season 3 and up that I like, even the newest ones. I'll agree they aren't as consistent as earlier but we all lose a step with age. I'm ok with them not slam dunking but still hitting the jump shots like jordan after his first retirement.
