    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.

    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.
