This makes me sad, but it was an inevitable outcome.
The Simpsons have made so many of us happier people when they faithfully aired on Sunday evenings. I, for one, watched them from their inception. My little brother and myself used to watch them every weekend. Then the standard practice of him punching me in the gonads — me whackin’ him on the head surely ensued. And yet, somehow, it always turned out to be my fault…
They got me through a lot of shitty days while working retail. I still post great Simpsons moments here on SOAO once in a while.
But this may just may be the final nail in their coffin for me.
Yes, they have fallen-off in the last decade or so, but they are still beloved by those who knew them in their golden years. As we all know, those days will never come again, but I’d like to remember the good times. The fact that FOX is now turning them into a parody of themselves is disturbing.
Perhaps I’m just being cynical — as I do tend to be — but I just find this insulting.
I don’t know. You guys can be the judge.
