Like a cutscene from a Command & Conquer: Red Alert game.

Meh. I stopped watching the Simpsons after the "Treehouse of Horror" shows started becoming lame-ass movie parodies (like "I know what you did-diddly-did-did last Summer") and the shows themselves started re-treading old concepts.
How many more shows are they going to make where Homer has to win back Bart/Lisa/Marge because Bart has become friends with a celebrity/he doesn't pay attention to Lisa's needs/Marge has taken up a hobby or career and is mad Homer ignored it?
They could start re-shooting season 1 scripts and nobody would notice.
I think they did that around season 11; the episode 'worst episode ever' was a conscious effort to admit they'd run out of ideas and were recycling old ones. When/if it ever ends I'll be sad though, although now there's much more of The Simpsons I have NOT watched than that which I have.
Like I've been saying for years, the Simpsons has been written for a long time by some guy who's seen an episode.
The one sickeningly overdone theme you left out is the "SIMPSONS ARE GOING TO [FILL IN THE NAME OF EXOTIC LOCALE THAT THEY CAN SQUEEZE 22 MINUTES' WORTH OF JOKES OUT OF]!!!"
The Treehouse of Horror episodes were always parodies of movies and Twilight Zone episodes. That is a horrible benchmark for the downfall of the Simpsons.
Personally I think the cutoff point is Hank Scorpio. That was the last truly brilliant episode, and after that the writers started trying to top it in ways which completely missed the point to what made that particular episode so good.

By all means, lets hear everybody's life story.
IT WAS A COLD DECEMBER MORN WHEN MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE SIMPSONS FINALLY DIED
I dumped the Simpsons for Futurama, I'm a sucker for a complete color palette.

This was from when the show was about 50% shit.

I thought Zombie Lenin was so funny, 10+ years ago.
Thanks for ruining that for me.
|Desidiosus - 2009-06-18 |
I understand they keep Stalin encased in a lead-lined coffin just so this never happens.

GRRR, Only season 1 was good!!! Hurf le Burf!!!
Hows this, if it's funny, laugh, even if you have heard it before. You watch The Big Lebowski more than once, right?
I understand the simpson are repeating themselves at this point. How that is worthy of nerd rage, I'll never understand.
P.S. I always dug this episode.
Like most things nerds get all sandy-vagina'd over, I don't respond with rage.
I just stop responding, period.
"Family Guy" is now funnier than "the Simpsons".
That's right, I said it.

This is still tied (with Scorpio) for my favourite episode, entirely for this part.
I still laugh my ass off everytime I see zombie Lenin, and the laughing 'Soviet' UN representative.
Yeah this scene is tied with this for me...
(scene)homer has an inner monologe on how to relate to Bart
Homers brain: Use reverse psychology.
Homer: Gee, I don't know if that will work.
Homers brain: fine, DON'T use reverse psychology.
Homer: Alright I will!!!

I sent this to my Russian friend, and she basically said that capitalism is already dead and not to listen to the Simpsons cause Lenin is still in the museum.

This season (2009) of the Simpsons was actually pretty good, with a couple exceptions. Not seasons 1 through 11 good, of course, but not too bad in comparison with the rest of the decade, in my opinion, and still better than 95% of the other primetime comedy shows.

i can't believe how fucking internet this discussion is
That's why I read Poetv: The Book

The Simpsons is dead to me. DEAD, YOU HEAR ME?! DEAD!

This scene was just as funny in Russian, but for different reasons.
