    (A+) i don't care about plot, and this episode really makes me laugh, which is the main point of watching the simpsons, for me.

    My number one rule when it comes to the Simpsons is if I don't like the characters in the episode, then I most likely won't like the episode regardless of how "Funny" it tries to be. The only person who could make a Simpsons episode gag-driven that well was David Mirkin in Seasons 5 and 6.

    so if you don't like the characters, it's trying to be funny.
    if you like the characters, then it is funny?

    The only episodes where I outright hate the character(s) are the Scully episodes where Homer is a raving lunatic, where he crosses the line between a loveable-immature oaf into a complete jackass. His presence actually takes away from any other humor present in the episode.

    In "Trash of the Titans", the only time I lol'd was when Homer was being beaten up by U2's bodyguards. I wish the rest of the episode focused on that.


    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.

    "One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld

    If you want to read a fanscript I wrote that illustrates what I find to be funny, but puts story first, check out this THoH 20 I wrote in 2009 here:

    I still think Homer can be funny as a jerk. There's just a very fine line between him being funny and just plain cruel. I mean, Homer is angry throughout a lot of Trash of the Titans, for no good reason, and I can accept that. But him rattling the bird cage for no good reason is just so bizarre it's funny to me. And I love the Love Day set up. Overall I find the episode "okay" but I would be lying if I didn't find Homer, at points in the episode, funny.

    It's mainly when Homer becomes a dick towards his family that it crosses a line eg. Kidney Trouble (which I find to be average, to be honest).

    Well in Kidney Trouble, I thought that maybe the first time he left was kind of justified because he didn't really know what he was getting into nor the real consequences of what would happen. Though the second one was awful and only there as a time killer.

    Seasons 10-12 are much more juvenile compared to 15-23, so that could explain why you're not amused with the last 8 seasons.

    naturally i disagree with that. seasons 10-12 it still seemed like the simpsons, unlike 15-23.

    15-23 seasons never made me laugh or smile once. just plain bland.
    ok once. "I've got melt-mania, i've got down-syndrome." but that's it.

    Seasons 10-12 made me laugh, but weren't witted. The Simpsons in its current state is an attempt at being witted but fails miserably, the jokes nowadays don't make me laugh. In fact they piss me off, season's 13-16 had decency in it thought.

    Okay, I've seen several threads lately devolve into two or three users bickering in the most banal, inane way possible--through single-sentence posts that tediously go on for pages.

    STOP DOING IT.

    It's highly obnoxious for anyone else reading the thread, clutters everything up with spammy nonsense, and just generally lowers the quality of the boards. This is not a chat room. If you truly feel the need to prattle back and forth with five-word posts that have absolutely no substance, please keep it to the PMs. Otherwise, stick to the topic at hand. I'm not a particularly strict mod by any stretch, but this recent trend of pointless, aimless posting is s(c)ullying up a great board for Simpsons discussion. Jake has the right idea clearing up the mess here, and I'll be doing the same if it continues.

    Now back to the topic, please!
    My Nintendo webcomic,
