I have to admit Jake that this is true. I read in my tv guide that it gave "last tap dance in springfield" a five star review, and saying "another classic episode, etc etc) I personally don't like that episode for many reasons. It gives the simpsons a five or four star review for every episode it seems.
2014 - the new england invasion
I have to admit though that season 18 is the last season I naturally enjoy - Season 1-12 are naturally enjoyable, but when the Jean era hit the show became no longer did unexpected things, it followed a traditional sitcom format in OFF's case: small plot sets up big plot.
It wasn't as good as the first twelve seasons (I'm only counting the Scully era because they varied each week by wackiness, unexpectedly hilarous jokes and occassionally a good episode could be salvaged) because of this predictable trend.
Now after Jean has set up his "era" on the show and released the movie, at season 19 he probably thought after six long years, he should do something different with the show.
Honestly, it's undeniable that the show hasn't changed from season 19 with different plot structure (no longer a smaller plot setting up an episode), and different styles of plot that are unexpectably original and different (The Great Wife Hope, Apocalypse Cow, etc.), HD change and the 4 act format.
Yet, it's not enjoyable, all this reworked Jean era is overdue and frankly poorly done, working more in the "style" of the episode and how it is arranged, rather than controlling the emotions of the viewer and being refreshingly unpredictable.
Anyway, I didn't mean to waffle off - I honestly feel that the tv guide's base their opinions on how much they admire the show's accomplishments of withholding a long-running watchable show without changing the characters (majorly). But with the post-season 18 theory, they (well my guide at the very least) finds all the changes and quality differences so severe that what is felt of the show can't top what the show actually is...

My least favorite character is probably, hmm toughy, I don't really necessarily hate any of the characters on the show, but I'd have to say Helen Lovejoy.
Uter to me is a rather pointless and bland character.
Nelson was right why can't this foreign exchange student go back to Germania?
Hey, hey, hey you asked us who are least favorite character was. Don't get all angry just for posting Lisa. She's been a real jerk this season. In the classic seasons she was great, I liked her along with Bart/Homer but now she's a real jerk.
Bart V.S Bob!
I think I have to say the Blue-Haired Lawyer; he's most often rather irritating and sucks the fun out of anything with his "you can't do that without a permit" attitude.
Agnes Skinner and Blue Haired Lawyer (or as Bart refers to him as "Milhouse in a suit").
- Brad Lascelle, even if I don't agree on a post like mine in which I did not watch a new episode of OFF and still give it a negative rating should result in banningThe reality is that both your post and his should be bannable offenses. Pure ignorance about the show's current-day content is just as offensive as wearing blinders to mediocrity and openly praising everything.
You can do anything if you put your mind to it.
Everything happens for a reason.
Just be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
Don't worry about the world ending today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.
What seasons are you thinking of? She's been meaner than Bart has been to her latley LOL. I mean a lot of the times this seasons she's picked on him, he didn't do any thing to her.
This thread makes Lisa ill.
alright, fuck it, while we're at it, i'll just explain my opinion about lisa.
also, i want to show off my new sig.
anyway, like everyone else has said before, she was probably the greatest character, sensitive and human but at the same time a normal 8 year old, but then someone decided that, what the heck, if she's such a great person let's make her love the animals, and fight for the animals, and that's when everything went out of control. soon we go from sensitive yet childish to holier than thou hippie. she became an arrogant little bitch, quite annoying indeed. recently (season 20) however it seems that they tried to make her "normal" again, and exaggerated it, making her a bunch of pop-culture references and forgetting to remove the main problem, her arrogance and know it all-ness
look at my sig!
edit: hey where the fuck did my sig go?

Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.
In my opinion, the worst characters are by far Selma, Patty, and Artie Ziff. I just hate them. Patty and Selma are not too awful bad, they are nice for just making appearences, but when the show revolves around them... I can't hardly watch it. Artie Ziff just makes me mad :l he is the only Simpsons character that I can say that about. He is just so asinine.
Ziff is a pain after a while though.
i really hate crazy cat lady by the way
I find the Crazy Cat Lady very funny. I thought the joke in The Great Wife Hope, which I just watched, was hilarious.
