    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

    Didn't watch/look at whatever you posted as I'm more interested in your signature Jake, did Yeardley really say that?

    I think it was written in the San Francisco chronicle back in the mid-90's.

    I remember some fans were leary of the wackiness introduced by David Mirkin in season 5 so there were opinions floating around at that time that the Simpsons were starting to go for the easy laughs.

    Yeah, as Thompson said, it was around Season 5 or 6 when the show became more gag based compared to the first 4 seasons, like how Scully too the show to even more gag-filled (and inducing) lows compared to the first 8 seasons. With all due respect to Ms. Smith's opinions, we have the gift of hindsight and have seen how awful the show has become compared to the Mirkin episodes.

    For what it's worth, the first episode the staff complained about being too 'wacky' was Marge vs the Monorail, which is just as surreal as Zombie Simpsons's episodes...but it is actually funny.

    So somebody's doing the Moonwalk at gunpoint and we end up talking about The Simpsons' decline.

    3 - Dog of Death/When Flanders Failed 4 - Lisa's First Word/So it's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5 - Secrets of a Successful Marriage/Bart's Inner Child 6 - And Maggie Makes Three/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7 - Marge Be Not Proud/Bart the Fink 8 - Homer's Phobia/The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase 9 - King of the Hill/Trash of the Titans 10 - Wild Barts Can't Be Broken/Maximum Homerdrive
