Default New Simpsons Intro

Am i the only one that didn't know they had a new intro? I mean its basically the same they just updated it to have newer characters and everything, but still interesting that they'd change it after 20 years.

It's honestly not bad at all. Just a little different

Lame

Does anybody over 16 still tune in every Sunday night for the recycled crap they're putting out? The last one I watched was with Marc Cuban, only because it had something to do with basketball, and I didn't even crack a smile. As hard as it is to imagine (considering how bad it was a few years ago), it's still progressively getting worse.

last time i watched it on a sunday was probably about 2-3 years ago. I honestly think their downfall is that they're trying to keep up with Family Guy's randomness/joke-a-minute/pop-culture references style and its takin away from the actual storylines that made it so good

Downfall was when Conan stopped writing for the show.

IMO, seasons 3-8/9 were the best seasons. the humor was amazing, and within each show, there were usually a couple of funny storylines going on at once. I haven't kept up with it in recent years, but it seemed like the newer episodes only had one thing going on.

What season are they up to now on DVD? I have up through season 9, but haven't gotten any new ones in awhile.

The intro is cool. LOL at poor mole man popping up from the sewer and nearly getting hit by a car.

Crazy to believe that the show is still going. To put it into perspective how old it is, it debuted 2 years before Fresh Price of Bel Air did, and is still going strong (sorta).

The Simpsons are running off reputation now. They have done so many storylines that its near impossible to keep it at a high level. I commend them for lasting so long, longest cartoon by far. And longest sitcom i believe. They dont feel the need to put forth the best storylines. They make bank living off what it once was and people still tune in bc of that

I was just wondering about the originality of the Simpsons, I mean by about season 10 they pretty much tried to pull everything out of the bag, from Homer going into space to Homer winning an Emmy to god knows what crazy stuff he's been up to (oh yeah being sent to be a missionary) and another 10 years later they are still on. I really want a GOOD storyline, where everything links up from top to bottom. I think my favourite episode is when Homer explains why there are no pictures of Maggie in the album.

That was a good episode actually. It wrapped up all cute-like at the end. lol

I've seen the Hank Scorpio episode probably half a dozen times in the past few months, and I'm thinking it's up near the top of the list for me. Prime Simpsons right there, with a solid storyline to boot.

The last good episode was when Lisa ran for president back in 2004 I think. In fact that was probably a top 15 Simpsons episode.

That's my favorite too. Season 6 was the best. Lemon of Troy, Stone Cutters, Lisa on Ice. All classics. Homer buying a gun was also a favorite too.
