How can anyone be on this message board and hate the Simpsons
(Users Browsing this Thread: )
the only simpson haters that i ever heard about are religious, or where the victim of a clasic simpson joke.
and old people whom do not fit the generation of simpson viewers,whom actualy do not hate it but can not look past the fact that it is animated entertainment.
my all time favorite episodes :
El viaje misterioso de nuestro Homero, the springfield files, the old man and the lisa, how they saved lisa's brain, realty bites, whacking day, Homer the Great, Mayored to the Mob, Hurricane Neddy, Monty Can't Buy Me Love, You Only Move Twice, King-Size Homer, Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming, Two Bad Neighbors, Homer the Smithers, Kidney Trouble.
the old treehouse of horror episodes.
@Rara, I still like the show quite a bit too. There are some episodes or jokes that make me think that the hate is COMPLETELY justified, but I think that a lot of the newer episodes are C quality or higher. Maybe my standards are lower, but I enjoy it enough to watch it weekly.
Back to the topic, the show really isn't considered "controversial" anymore, at least in comparison to other TV. Ocassionally the PTC criticizes the show, but everyone hates them anyways.

The Simpsons rarely ever comes up in real life conversations for me, but around the time The D'ohcial Network aired, somebody in my class saw a Simpsons shirt I was wearing and said something like "I didn't know that show was still on. I thought I remembered people making a big deal off of it ending. I wish it did end because that Facebook episode was terrible."

My grandmother thinks Marge's voice is annoying and grainy but other than that, everyone in my family likes the Simpsons. However, at school it's the exact opposite. Everyone despises The Simpsons by judging the newer episodes when they haven't even seen the older episodes and when comparing it to Family Guy, they cite it as the better show. I have nothing against that because it's their opinion, but I feel they should actually take a minute to look back at how incredible The Simpsons was before saying it. I don't belong at that school
Funny you mentioned Rome-old and Juli-eh because in maths class last year, the teacher let us watch one of his shows on his flash drive. Everyone wanted Family Guy but he chose Rome-old and Juli-eh from The Simpsons. Everyone was laughing at the worst jokes, which happened to be the most dirty, which just goes to show that that's what they want

The only person I know who dislikes the show is my grandmother, I'm not sure she's even watched an entire episode. My family is full of fans of the show other than her though.
I'd find it really hard to be friends with anyone like that.
"I shouldn't have eaten that packet of powdered gravy I found in the parking lot..."
I'm friends with people who don't get why it's a such a big deal but I'm not sure I know anyone who hates it. One of my Grandads dismissed it as a kids show but said that it's good for kids. And he could have been using the word kids as a synonym for people younger than him. My Grandma from the other side won't stop going on about what a good moral basis the show has.
I only watch the show these days to laugh at how shit it has become.
Everybody's a jerk. You, me, this jerk. That's my philosophy.
To most people like the simpsons, there are also people who do not like, buy do not hate.
Many of my teachers watch the simpsons and even make comparisons of what we discussed in class to something that happened in any episode.
Sorry for my english, i use the translator
I was talking to my friend at school one day and she say something about a teacher strangling one of his students. I then said, " Sounds like something Homer would do to Bart" and she was like "What?". I then said, "Homer and Bart Simpson from The Simpsons you should know that show". She later says "Oh, why do you watch that show?". So I have a feeling she hates it and my friend watches New Spongebob and Kung Fu Panda (no offense to people who like those shows it's just that I hate them.)
Um, I hope that teacher didn't actually strangle a student...
I don't know anybody like that. Of course I run into them online, but my friends and family like the show. Sometimes my dad, who watched the show regularly in the classic era, will catch a new episode and will tell me how much he liked it. Usually it's an episode that is considered a good one, like Holidays of Future Passed or Homer the Father.
I actually just got into a Simpsons discussion at work. It was short, but basically somebody mentioned Family Guy (noting that they saw a guy who sounded like Peter Griffin) and we all started to talk about how much Family Guy sucked. I noted that the show was good before it got cancelled, and that what I hate about the show is how little characters care for each other. In 23 seasons of The Simpsons, Homer still loves Marge and that's why I've always liked the show. It still retains that heart.
UP AND ATOM!
I had a teacher in high school who said she couldn't stand it and she didn't see what kids these days saw in the show (this was going back to the classic era back in the early 1990s). She was quite conservative in her outlook so it didn't really surprise me. To her credit, she did listen to me and respect my point of view when I disagreed with her
Yep, everyone I know, except about three people much prefer Family Guy. it's pretty frustrating, and like someone else said, it seems that it's just because they need a joke a minute. I think people have lost the desire to warm to characters, and just want gags instead. I was saying to my brother the other day, and he agreed, that if anyone said a bad word about Homer, I would feel offended, as if he were a family member. That's quite a statement for a cartoon character.
There's an idiot named Yo_Ace who hates John Swartzwelder. To me that is hating the Simpsons
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.
I'm sick of people saying the best Simpsons were the old ones They suck and they even compare to the quality of Simpsons episodes today. The quality was crap the colour was all off and blurry and the episodes are so boring.. The best Simpsons episodes start from season 19 on!
