    I thought that with all the propaganda about Season 30, maybe it would be slightly better than the 10 last ones, which were just awful. But no. It is certainly the worst season so far. The jokes are so bad and forced it is simply embarrassing to watch it. Though it is kinda interesting to watch these new episodes only to see how BAD they are. You get amazed with how terrible the humor is and wonder how anyone even thought it was funny

    The basic reading error that begins this whole video, and pretty much invalidates it all, is the assertion that the animated comedy TV show currently on Fox about a yellow family living in an American small town is not The Simpsons. It Is. People just can't admit they don't like The Simpsons anymore, and have disliked it for much longer than they've liked it. If the show you've analyzed is not The Simpsons, what the hell is the video about then? What weight does it hold as critical theory?

    This video addresses so much. The one thing it doesn't address, however, is that the writers are in fact just Simpsons fans too, anymore. Luckier Simpsons fans, granted, who get way more resources to bring their ideas to life, but as it continues, I think it'll get harder and harder to draw a line between what fans can do and the official writers can't.

    Ive been watching some of the new one im gonna still watch them my hole life its the only show iv kept since im like six but it does not give that feeling its just kinda boring (kinda wanna see the dead bart episode even do we got how everyone is gonna die still wanna watch the otiginal concept)

    I think this explains what makes me so uncomfortable when it comes to Simpsons Wave. Means I still have a lot to realize about my life and the existentialism of death.

    Kinda sick and twisted to say that Marge is depressed and alone from having a loving husband and a family.
    That's anti western anti human modern feminist propaganda... You've inverted what it means to be a women and how women find happiness. Trying to convince women to not get married not have kids.... pushing depopulation and depression upon gullible women. The women who swallow this narrative have careers, grow old and ugly and then in their 40s wonder why they are old ugly alone with no husband no kids and 12 cats while everyone they know is happily married continuing the specias. So fuck you whoever made this video you're a sick piece of garbage for pushing this twisted propaganda narrative. I hope you get hit by a bus.

    The balence of relatability and ironic meme-ability of a giant and increasingly cynical media franchise has made emotionally expressive art accessible to groups who would otherwise not engage with more established (ie. Modern) highly conceptual art forms. That's pretty neat.

    I think you just watched way too many steamed hams edits so your brain latched on to the only change it could find and praised it because it saved you from such an obvious loop of hell. Im glad you made it out alive.

    as someone with the bartkira tumblr page casually open in the next chrome tab [recently saw akira n started hyper-fixating on it too..ha!], multiple other simpsons-related tabs open, a hundred or so strange simpson screencaps saved and rotated as screensavers, and draws sad bart simpson when there's nothing better to do.....this video touched me in a oddly specific, personal way.

    thank you for recognizing the Marge Simpson Anime!! found it on tumblr many moons ago and it left such an impact on me. the simpsons recontextualized as a feminist, pro-wlw, anti-child-abuse narrative wasn't only cathartic, it was like, a DUH moment where the inherent queerness of the simpsons' family members became apparent to me. the artist soolagna-meow deserves so much more recognition. to all other devoted simpsons fans out there: please keep the beautifully illustrated queer content coming!

    Being a homemaker is one of the best thing a women can become. Otherwise, no matter how successful they become it doesn't matter when they have to return to a dark empty home where no one cares about them. Also, marge is an unpleasant bitch.

    The Simpsons is trying to be topical this era and this era only, and that’s the problem. The classic Simpsons episodes deal with issues that are timeless. An episode that aired in 1992 could be reanimated with modern technology in the background, and it wouldn’t feel antiquated at all. By contrast, an episode from just 5 years ago is going to feel dated as hell.

    I love the internet. This video rekindled the whys/reasons that made me so ecxited about the internet since the early 2000's when i was just a semi adolescent and i could see how big the world and the things are and how much joy and art icould know. I had forgotten nowdays and couldn't refind. I was lost on the same bad feeds. Facebook, instagram( witch i barely use but when everything is so empty and i am at despair for anithing to happend so kinda i vosit there each couple of days but still,) even youtube which is being one of my favorite places for a couple of years already. i am doing badly but idk. The subsequent mean comments i am predicting do indeed make me sad actually, they dont really hurt me but they smell bad and i cant clean every place that needs :(
