Via Fox/The Simpsons I honestly don’t remember a time without The Simpsons. I mean, it has been on TV pretty much my entire life, and I’ve never really thought about it until now but it’s got to be my favourite show. I don’t watch new episodes religiously every Sunday like I do with Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, and I’ve gone months without watching it at all, but that dysfunctional yellow family is always waiting for me when I come back.
Via Fox/The Simpsons Well, that won’t change anytime soon because Fox has just renewed it for two more seasons, the 31st and 32nd. It’s crazy to think that by the end of Season 32, there will have been 713 episodes.
Via Fox/The Simpsons What’s even crazier is the number of awards the show has won over the years. 33 Emmy Awards, 30 Annie Awards, 11 Writers Guild of America Awards, 6 Genesis Awards, 8 People’s Choice Awards, and 3 British Comedy Awards… and there’s probably some I missed.
So I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say that
The Simpsons, the longest-running primetime scripted series (a milestone it celebrated after Episode 636), is the best TV show ever made.
Via Fox/The Simpsons Created by cartoonist Matt Groening, the first episode aired nearly 30 years ago, on December 17, 1989, after being developed from a series of shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show two years earlier. In the three decades since then, The Simpsons has kept us entertained with its satirical depiction of the American working-class life, endless parodies, and hilarious pop culture references.
It’s also hit some bumps in the road along the way though, and understandably so considering they’ve covered every subject imaginable. But are their best days behind them?
Via Twitter/solmaquina That’s the opinion of many fans, including me to a degree, but one guy took it upon himself break it down for us. Twitter user Sol Harris watched every episode up until Season 28, ranked each one out of 10, and then plotted the results on this handy little graph. According to his research, Seasons 3 to 8 were what he calls “The Golden Years”, and with classic episodes like Marge vs. The Monorail, Last Exit to Springfield, and the two-part mystery Who Shot Mr. Burns?, I would tend to agree with him.
Via Fox/The Simpsons However, he also pinpointed two dates that really stand out. The first is November 11, 2001, “the definitive moment when the show went from ‘bad Simpsons’ to ‘bad television’”. The second is the beginning of Season 23, September 25, 2011. That’s the date when he claims that “there are now more bad episodes than good”.
Via Fox/The Simpsons I’m not sure I agree with this graph, not totally anyway. Yes, The Simpsons may not be as great as it once was, it’s hard to live up to some of the classics of the past. But it’s still amazing, and it’s still here.
Via Fox/The Simpsons What do you guys think?
The problem with the Simpsons, is they are too wholesome for today’s culture. When it started it was edgy, and pushed the envelope as to what could be shown on tv. Now you have people freaking out because they have the character Apu, and had him removed from the show. They folded to the social media mobs and PC culture. They haven’t found a way to evolve in the recent seasons.
