I can see Krusty Burger charging $ 12.99 for a fast food menu item. And hey, if they wanted to tear down "Back to the Future: The Ride" for "The Simpsons" a bunch of novelty restaurants and gift shops, all power to them, I guess.
Aside from all that...someone please put a fucking bullet in this show already. I thought 1998 would be the end. I thought the movie would be the end. Now I'm somehow being affected negatively by it.
Has Justin Bieber guest voiced yet? How about failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney? Why they could get the whole Kardashian clan to guest voice the Simpsons...
WHAT ABOUT THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE???!!!
Yup he had a quick appearance not too long ago.
Correction - you sound like whiney conservatives talking about 'the good old days' that never actually existed.
Except in this case 'the good old days' DID exist and these old people are right. The Simpsons was top shelf during its first nine seasons, and it parodied our dumbshit Americana existence to the highest degree.
Now a considerably older voice cast shuffles to work for another awful season, Nancy Cartwright is at OT Infinity and the show needs to end, it just needs to fucking end. Also, this novelty village with its $ 13 burgers and hot dogs is exactly the kind of bullshit the old, GOOD Simpsons used to make fun of.
They always had guest stars but they were rarely very topical in the golden years. James Woods, Bob Newhart, Dick Cavett, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Goulet. Just random people the writers liked and/or thought would be funny.

This is all so incredibly lame and sad. Must be the music. Did they try to make this a full 6 minutes? So much annoying padding.

The only thing I liked was the Frying Dutchman sign. I still wish the Simpsons had died in a plane crash a long time ago.

Some of the new episodes of The Simpsons are genuinely funny and heartfelt. I recently saw a handful of episodes from seasons 20-24 that approached the quality of seasons 2-8. "A Totally Cool Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again" would've made a satisfying final episode.
I was just thinking that. I recently snagged a copy of Season 24. It's actually pretty good! I don't know if I'd go as far as saying it's just as good as Golden Age Simpsons, but try as I might, I couldn't help laughing at some parts.
The Donut Hipsters episode stood out for me, because it hit real close to home. Also, some of quips Moe was making in the Mob Accountant episode had me choking on my dinner. I'm thinking that The Simpson's rapidly aging fanbase has finally caught up with the show; kids who were Bart's age when it first came out are now old enough to be working on the show, with a lifetime of sophisticated Simpsons appreciation under their belts. Maybe this is what's happening? Maybe the show's getting an influx of fresh blood from people who actually know how to make the show work?
I hope that's what it is. I'd hate for my standards to be slipping now that I'm a ponytard.
The last couple of seasons are better than the half dozen or so that came before them, but let's not go nuts.

EvilHomer, I completely agree. The show's sophomore slump was so lengthy the original audience grew up and unleashed the decades of stories they'd pent up, many of which veer toward the conceptual. This is New Simpsons at its best, when it plays off the show's age by asking how inertia affects the life of a perpetual 10 year-old.
