    Second Simpsons movie plot: The Simpson family try and end the show. Break the fourth wall, storm fox, show their agony of always saying their age, go crazy with it! In the end. They go see Bart and Lisa at the school singing in the first episode.

    Bart isn't woke don't make him woke. As a kid in the 90s I could relate to Bart n as an adult I can relate to early to mid 90s Homer but the simpsons in later seasons it's not them I can't relate it's just trash

    I never actually got myself to download/play this game. To be honest it is too... painful.
    I grew up with The Simpsons and seeing them like this hollow shadow of themselves is vexing.
    I've distanced myself from anything "Simpsons" for the same reason.

    What I wrote on the fall of the Simpsons video
    Man I started to almost cry while watching this. Have so many childhood memories watching the Simpsons on the big fat ass tv. Have watched a couple of new ones here and there over the past ten years and it unbearable. Lisa is like a clueless child now, Bart seems gay, Marge seems selfish, and homer is just insanely forced stupid and crazy inhumane person now. The episodes are like family guy where they have no solid plot line and always seems like they just wrote severely different plots into a episode. Has no meaning to it anymore. And yeah it is just based around pop culture and technology and nothing else about it. Looks like the Simpsons sold their souls.

    This is... beautiful. In thirty minutes you’ve dissected the underlying problems in one of entertainments biggest downfalls in a style that is distinctive and lovingly wistful. In this sea of talentless and snarky critics flinging their negative opinions with only the intent inflame and support themselves, your videos have a heart and soul. You understand the purpose of both media and these types of videos, and I hope you know that you are the keeper of the flames of media in this age of rehashing and discourse.

    also anyone who’s read Bartkira is a man of good culture lol

  • george millman

    I think that The Simpsons would have done better to allow the characters to age normally - right from the off. Firstly it would be an unbelievably radical thing for a cartoon to do in the first place, making it even more groundbreaking than it was. Secondly, it would have meant even some of the Golden Era episodes would have made more sense with the characters ages - for instance, Bart would have had his crush on Laura Powers at 14 and dated Jessica Lovejoy at 16, which is far more plausible than at 10, and most of the best bits would have stayed the same.
    But most importantly, this would have allowed the characters to evolve with the times, as people do, and still have the potential for more stories. Imagine a cartoon series about 40-year-old Bart, Homer and Marge as grandparents and Maggie in her early 30s. The show would have been able to deal with loads of things it never had the potential to do within the format before - the eventual death of Abe Simpson, Marge and Homer's empty nest when the kids move out, the three kids finding partners and going through their own adult ups and downs... I would watch a show like that, and it would still be current. The big problem the show was inevitably going to have was that every avenue for a genuine story was exhausted fairly early on.

    Since you brought up the weird side of the simpsons you should try the TheXvid channel dark simpsons... the channel takes clips from simpsons episodes and arrange in a way to form a narrative with usually darkly comedic results... it is really surreal and awesome

    The ending of that video was oddly...optimistic? Like as long as there are people who remember classic Simpsons and pay homage to it in some way, then the Simpsons that we all remember and love is still around, as opposed to the heartless aberration they're shamelessly flaunting on television.

    • Teddy Furstman

      I agree the classic Simpsons episodes are always timeless and are pure 90's edge. I'll always love seasons 1 - 7 as well as Season 8 and 9 - 12 the Mike Scully Seasons.

    There’s an entire language that the generation that grew up with the Simpson’s specifically speak. Anytime one says “As was the style at the time” or “What a time to be alive” or many others classic lines, other fans instantly just know, and there’s usually an unspoken connection immediately formed, that may one day fade from this world, but I’m so glad I speak that language.
