Brief Summary of The Show's decline…
Season 1 (1989–1990) — the beginning
When the show first started, it wasn't bad. Yes, there was less humour, and the stories were slower-paced, but they were strong stories, and (crucially) the characters were strong, likable and identifiable (despite being badly drawn). It's easy to forget now, but these first episodes absolutely revolutionised cartoons at the time — until then, nobody made cartoons with satirical adult humour. Nobody had seen yellow people before. And cartoon characters had never been so near to real life before — so similar to a real family. Back in 1990, The Simpsons blew everyone away.
Seasons 2, 3 and 4 (1990–1993) — the ****c years
Pretty much all Simpsons fans would agree that you can't get better than these years. The writing team was at its absolute best and the stories were all fresh. Pretty much all the absolute ****c episodes came from this period ("Last Exit for Springfield", "Cape Feare", "Marge vs. the Monorail", "Lisa's Substitute"). In these days there was no such thing as a bad episode. There wasn't a single episode that did not make you laugh for 22 minutes.
Seasons 5 and 6 (1993–1995) — the latter ****c years
Season 5 marked the beginning of the gradual decline of the Simpsons, after the original writing team left at the end of season 4 and staff started changing. However, there was still a lot of talented people involved, and seasons 5 and 6 were still of an extremely high quality. These latter ****c years were almost indistinguishable from seasons 2–4, apart from tending towards being slightly more surreal and less emotional.
Seasons 7–9 (1995–1998) — the poor episodes come
Season 7 marked a distinct change in The Simpsons. It was the first ever season to have bad episodes. Yes, there were still some goodies (such as "Bart Sells His Soul" or "Marge Be Not Proud") but some really poor ones were there in the mix, too ("Two Bad Neighbours", "Homerpalooza", and — worst of all — "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish"). And by season 8 (when Phil Hartman was murdered), we had episodes that weren't just poor: they felt like a completely different TV show. (Episodes such as "You Only Move Twice", "The Mysterious Voyage of Homer" and "The Secret War of Lisa Simpson"). We were all thinking the show was going through a rough patch, but this was nothing compared with what was to come…
Seasons 10–18 (1998–now) — the crap episodes come
Until now, The Simpsons had always been somewhere between excellent and (occasionally) poor. Then, in season 10, they began making absolute crap. The Simpsons as we knew it was all but dead. Some of the worst offenders were: "Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo" (season 10) and "Kill the Alligator and Run" (season 11). But probably the one moment when every Simpsons Fan realised — for certain — it was no longer the same show, was when Homer traveled to leprechaun land in season 11's "Saddlesore Galactica". The scene (featuring leprechaun jockeys singing to Homer) must've lasted 2 minutes and contained absolutely no humour or plot. The episode concluded with Homer "killing" the jockeys by throwing them in a bin bag. He may as well have been throwing the fanbase in that bin bag, too. From here on, the crap episodes just got more and more and these days you can go almost an entire season without finding a good one.
Why The Simpsons Sucks Now
There are several key reasons why the show is no longer anywhere near as good as it used to be, including:
• By far the biggest change (in my opinion) is the lack of reality. The Simpsons was always great because it was like real life only a cartoon. The people felt like real people. The family seemed like a real family. Now it's just a cartoon.
• The biggest casualty of this shift from reality to cartoon is Homer. Homer was always like a real man. Yes, he wasn't perfect and he screwed up, but he was someone we could all relate to, and he loved his family. The New Homer is just a madman who annoys everyone, never goes to work, and doesn't care about his family. Homer has no identity any more. He just develops extreme, baseless emotions to fit the story. He would occasionally do that in the old days, but it was funny because it was unexpected. Now Homer is constantly crazy, it's just weird.
• The Simpsons was originally full of social commentary and subtle satire. This has been replaced with slapstick toilet cartoon humour.
• The Simpsons originally had a lot of cinematic drama in the script and direction, giving everything a "grand" feeling and made each episode seem like a movie. Now it's just a cartoon show.
• The Simpsons always had so much heart. The stories were sentimental and heart-warming character-based tales. Everything felt very poetic and artistic, and well-crafted. Now it's just a cartoon show.
• The new plots are all over the place, jumping around randomly from one subject to another, making it seem like the writers don't even plan the episodes out. Usually the first 10 minutes has nothing to do with the rest of the episode these days. The episodes are no longer mini-movies; now they're just a series of jokes tied loosely together.
• The plots of the ****c episodes were usually heavily character–based. The new episodes have surreal outlandish stories that don't focus on the characters at all. A little surrealism was always welcome, but when the entire story is based on stretching the "rubber-band-reality", then we completely lose touch with it and it becomes meaningless.
• Endless pointless guest appearances that aren't funny and are only used to generate interest in the show.
• Endless "Simpsons go to..." episodes.
• Where there was once 22 minutes of tightly-packed top-notch humour, now we have endless streams of "hit and miss" jokes, with lots of waiting inbetween. The old episodes used to (and still do) make me and my friends laugh out loud for 22 minutes solid, whereas the new episodes rarely make us smirk.
In summary, the general rule for whether an episode is "****c" or "crap" is: if it features Troy McClure, it's ****c.
