    hey y'all i'm new to the forum, but not to spending way too much of my time thinking about the simpsons!

    i have a question for any older members - is there somewhere i can find a little summary of what people mean when they say things like 'the scully years' and 'the jean era' -- i understand i can look up the years, but i feel like people are also referring to a sort of generally understood aesthetic/humor/whatever for that period, and a general consensus on each one's merit. i feel like googling this would get me results that are way more in depth than what i'm looking for, i just want to get the general idea.

    (hope that question makes sense)

    First off, welcome.

    The Scully era denotes episodes that were made under the tenure of Mike Scully, which, other than a few holdovers, runs from seasons 9 to 12. They're characterized by their wacky plots, off-the-wall humor, and the personality often referred to as "jerkass Homer," in which he's a jerk for no real reason. That type of characterization for him rose to prominence during the Scully years.

    The Jean era goes from season 13 to the present. Since it's such a large era, it's hard to give it consistent characteristics. The episodes from around seasons 13-16 are sometimes considered better than the Scully era, but don't take that as gospel; it's a very divisive opinion. He toned Homer down a little, made him less of a jerk, and instilled some emotion back into the episodes, although it was at the sacrifice of some humor. From around season 17 on, though, it lost a lot of the characteristics of what he did to keep the show decent, and a lot of the episodes just became boring. They lost the humor and emotion they had in his earlier years, and now it looks like nobody really cares anymore.

    Those are actually six "eras" if you go by showrunner. I just remembered some extremely in-depth posts about the nuances of the first four, which are commonly called the "classic era." I will link you to them if you are interested:

    Groening/Brooks/Simon (seasons 1-2)
    Jean/Reiss (seasons 3-4)
    Mirkin (seasons 5-6)
    Oakley/Weinstein (seasons 7-8)

    Hello, everyone. I'm pretty new to the site, as far as I can tell. I promise I will be kind and help out as much as I can. I remembered watching The Simpsons when I was little. But now I'm all grown up and I still watch a bit of the show from time to time. I'll be very polite and talk as much as I can, okay?

    Hello. I'm Wyngarde, I enjoy the Simpsons. I actually wrote a paper about it at college, examining and explaining why its the most universal TV show there's ever been and how important and groundbreaking it once was... and why in its golden era - it was the greatest sitcom of all time.
    I stopped watching around season 12.
    I'm 26, have an exemplary work record and a moustache.*

    Isnt Jeans era is split in two as pre-HD and post-HD? Also, I thought that people found HD seasons to be too emotional to the point of being too sappy and smarmy at the expense of humour and that's where the boring opinion came from.

    i recommend you watch some later episodes, it's still watchable for the most part past s12 till I'd say at least 22, probably earlier/later depending on who you ask

    I have given it a try - I've probably watched maybe a dozen or so epsiodes here and there from 13 through to about 18 but even the odd ep where Simpsons fans whose opinions I've trusted have said 'no really, X is actually an okay episode' - I've watched it and I still didn't enjoy it. I've wanted to, I really have. I have such goodwill for the show, but...

    All right, you're free to have your opinions. As long as you kept an open mind and really did try to enjoy the episodes.
