As a relative newbie to this site and a general observer I find it really discouraging to see nearly every second thread devoted to negative subjects such as "worst episodes ever" "worst season ever" etc. etc. etc. Some of the comments in these threads are ridiculous also.. People are constantly saying how they "haven't watched the show since season whatever" "The plot makes no sense" "I hate so and so character"
Really? I'm sorry but if you haven't watched and episodes for years, why are you here?
It's a cartoon people.. and it's a funny one at that. It's broken all sorts of records for the longest running animated show and all other animated shows currently on at the moment only exist because of the Simpsons.
Some episodes are a bit average but you get that in any show. It's impossible to live up to peoples nostalgic expectations of the first episode they ever saw.
I really think many "fans" on here ridicule the show because it makes them look clever and well informed on plot-lines etc.
In my eyes you're not a true fan if you have nothing positive to say....
