The Simpsons, lost it's magic?

Now don't get me wrong, i LOVE The Simpsons. I've been watching them ever since i was young! I've loved the creativity, mysteries, humor and constant references to other well known figures in the real word. I loved how they got a good range of famous people to star in their episodes. I could easily go to school the next morning and refer to a past episode I had watched and instantly the person i was talking to understood exactly what i was talking about! And not to mention the countless quotes from the many episodes were priceless! It was a sort of culture, a fashion statement, a lifestyle!

However, today it seems to have slipped. I rarely ever watch The Simpsons anymore and when I do I don't really enjoy it. It doesn't have that special vibe that it used to have. I used to get all excited to turn on my TV and switch over to Sky1 but now I really don't want to. Maybe it's because they have run out of ideas? Maybe there are other TV shows which also capture the viewers attention a way The Simpsons never have (The Inbetweeners, Mythbusters, The Peep Show, Prison Break).

What are your views on this? Do you think The Simpsons as a TV show has become boring or is it still that great TV show it always is?


Oh and I would like to thank ALL my followers <3 Its because of you guys I will continue posting!

  2. i like it still too, same formula still works, its probably just draining on you that you watched the same thing for such a long time, its like eating the same thing every week for a good portion of your life. you might get tired of it just cuz of the consistency

    anyways i added u, add me back.

  3. It used to be more original but with any series that lasts that long there is bound to be a cultural feedback loop which results in a loss of quality. Sad but true. I still watch it even though I only get to watch 90's re-runs on TV ;_;
