17,000+ words on what is the best period of the Simpsons, the various factors that caused the decline in the show and whether or not the most recent episodes are good. I need to set aside a few hours to read all this.

wow the one point i always make in these discussions isn't there. if i had a wiki account i would do something.
it revolves around troy mcclure's quote at the end of the 130-something-th episode spectacular special
"who knows what crazy adventures the simpsons will have between now and the time they become unprofitable?"
i remember hearing that when it aired and thinking that maybe behind the joke it was a declaration that they were going to bleed it dry as long as humanly possible against any amount of good judgement. it was all there in that quote from like season 5.

Also mind boggling that it consistently beats Bobs Burgers in the ratings each week as well.

Are you serious? It's the Simpsons

Vs bobs burgers

Ratings have never been a good way to determine a show's excellence

I watched that Moneyball episode they did because people said it was good and it was fucking atrocious and exemplified everything that's terrible about the show since it started sucking

The Maggie short is the first good thing since like 1998, but the episodes are awful.

Well here is probably the worst opinion about The Simpsons I've ever seen:

In a two-part video series entitled The Simpsons Is Still Funny, Bob "MovieBob" Chipman spends 11 minutes explaining why in his opinion, "The Simpsons isn't bad, you just grew up". He argues that the period when people say the show stopped being funny is "whenever it is that you went off to college and/or otherwise found something else to do on Sunday nights and were not obsessively following it week to week".

I don't know that Mr. Chipman really appreciates what it was like to be able to obsessively follow, week to week, FOX Sunday programming for the first time, and then to have that time be Fall 1998.
