The Simpsons still being on the air is like couples that have been married for thirty years still have sex, it doesnt really bring any joy, its just the normal thing to do.

I may be reading too much into a Simpsons episode, but the more I watched, as an MMA fan, the more I was insulted. Typical Simpsons for the last 5 years, not very funny, the show should have went into the sunset gracefully instead of hanging on and not being funny anymore.
I don't think you were reading too much at all. Actually I think your comments were too kind to the Simpsons. I was hoping the tone would significantly change after Marge's fight, considering the Ice Man's guest appearance. My sons and I were more disappointed than normal with this episode. Anyone who didn't see it, IMHO you did yourself a favor if you're a real MMA fan.

that was the only funny part! but in a kind of ironic post modern way, not a slap stick way, which is what i want from the Simpsons.

this was the first simpson's episode i watched since Jack Black guest stared, and before that it was the one that Christina Ricci guest stared, so now this is 3 episodes in like 9 years i've watched and still just don't care.

Still enjoying Simpsons, last few seasons for example have been awesome. I have to admit this specific episode wasn't that awesome even though Mr. Burns' mma skills cracked me up.

Never thought I'd be one of them folks that got tired of the new Simpsons, but after a while of trying, it just stopped working. Meh...at least Family Guy...I mean...the Cleveland Show...**** it, King of the Hill shouldn't have ended.

FTW

AMerican Dad is still way better than any other cartoon on the air right now. It actually mixes political jokes and stuff like that in, where as Family Guy is now nothing but fart jokes and ADD cut scenes and the Cleveland show was just out right not funny. That shit will be canned before the years over I bet.

I TOTALLY agree. it sucks because I can't get my friends to give American Dad the time of day, even though it's arguably funnier than Family guy, and WAY better than the Cleveland show.

I respect witty humor.

I did myself a favor then, and didn't watch it.

I am encouraged by the tongue in cheek ""If it isn't in my taste, nobody should watch it" line, though.

Welcome to the forum, BTW.
