In Topic: Which will end higher: Brodeur wins or Simpsons episodes?

Yes I'm sure it was the politics and not the decreased emphasis on characterization and story + inferior joke writing that sunk the later seasons.

 

all I was getting at was that's what turned me off to the show.


I was bored with Family Guy after it came back, and I also agree with those who never got into How I Met Your Mother.

 

is this what getting older feels like...?

This is spot on. Seasons 2-7 were pure brilliance. Season 8 is good, but not the levels of the previous seasons. Season 9 is when it started to nosedive.

I have to say it's one or those shows that I forget they are still coming out with new episodes with but I'll be sad and angry if they ever took off the air. I would say the same with SNL but I think SNL has grown so unfunny over the past decade that I would actually be happy and/or uncaring if that show went off the air.

 

This. Pure awful television. I'd put it on par of uselessness as Jersey Shore.

Yeah, I watch the new ones when they come on just to say I've seen them. I think the only character I'm not particularly fond of is Lisa, the blatantly obvious Liberal/Feminist/Hippie/etc. I mean it's one thing to have that character, but to be that in your face about it. It's like American Dad with the daughter, Hailey I think...?

 

I was watching the old episodes this weekend and then caught part of the one on tonight on Fox and it was just over the top, from any given character. Granted I was a lot younger when I stopped watching, but I just find it annoying.

Everything through season 8 is great, season 9 is ok, but everything after that, basically from 2000 on is terrible.

 

Right about the time they decided to ramp up their political agendas from subtle to blatantly obvious.

Did Craig Button weigh in yet? He always says we'll finish in like 11th place.

 

He can shove his opinion and his permed mullet up his backside. At times he seems to make sense and others he's freaking annoying as hell.
