I just realized that the show is 22 years old, there have now been more awful seasons than good ones. If I were the kind of person who got depressed at unimportant bullshit, I'd be depressed right now. At least the part not done by the usual Simpsons braintrust was good.
So far this season has had two legitimately good, funny episodes, and one atrociously bad one.
That's about a typical ratio these days. Of course the internet, being what it is, will fixate on the bad one.

Who or what is a Banksy?

It's funny cuz it's true.

You stupid fuckers can't even face the cost of your own greed without someone wrapping it up in a shitty joke.
And yet, ironically, you spend 90% of your disposable income on children's cartoons and related products.
You fool. In Japan all the animation is done by suave, millionaire eskimo spies, who toss the cells out of their Ferraris as they seduce russian spy ladies and drink martinis and smoke long, thin cigarillos through a filter made of manly man filter material (not that sissy stuff you Americans use).
The kid who puts the cels in the vat was probably really freaked out when he saw his face on some of them.

1989: A young Matt Greoning refuses to sign a contract to turn his cartoon shorts into a prime time series unless the network agrees in writing to never send him any notes or try to veto the show's content. Fox, desperate for a hit show, agrees.
1995: "I've held many jobs: whale hunter, seal clubber, president of the Fox Network."
1996: "You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I never even noticed."
1998: "'We'll fake it and sell it to the Fox network.' 'They'll buy anything!' "
2000:" 'Ten thousand dollars? Bart, you've saved the Fox network!' 'Wouldn't be the first time.' "
2010: Matt's show depicts Fox as a slave labor camp where dreams go to die.

I thought nobody knows who bansky really is. How did they contact him to do this?

started out good, then got too wacky to really hit

The opening seemed just like normal one, it was the couch gag that was different.
I remember there was some resentment somewhere in the 10 first seasons about doing a joke about the Korean animators working like slaves, but I guess it's OK when Banksy does it.
They can get away with it once per decade. Just watch, Season 35 is going to have some side-splitting Korean animator jokes.

Kill this show already, with fire.

That sound you hear is 5000 bloggers writing "slave labor is the funniest thing they've done since season ____" and all hitting send at once.

Nice intro. Still been shit since Season 6/7 though.

Banksy has done some neat as hell graffiti and made some wonderful social statements. That was long ago and he is no longer relevant or entertaining.

Certainly they can find a better use for a unicorn than that.
He wasn't always that haggard.
Crap, Fox took it down already. CENSORSHIP!

Interestingly, some Banksy graffiti ended up in Portland, Oregon little while back. Matt Groening grew up in Portland, Oregon and named a lot of The Simpsons characters after things like Portland streets (for example, Flanders). Coincidence?

Endut! Hoch Hech!
