May 3rd 2010 4:06PM There's no way i can sum up my feelings about this better then Matt Ufford from Warming Glow, so i'll just c/p his piece:
Add me to the long list of hacks who have declared the Simpsons “dead.” We have declared it dead upwards of a dozen times since the September 28, 1997 Seymour Skinner episode, but until the show finally dies, this descriptor has not and will not be any more appropriate than it is in the wake of last night’s opening credits.
The most important point to take away here is that the writers of this show believe that you a) enjoy or can at least tolerate the musical stylings of Kesha [sic], b) appreciate it when characters who have been developed over the course of twenty-plus years are used as puppets, and c) don’t need jokes, only familiar faces. Otto is being shown on my television. Whoa, now Comic Book Guy is being shown on my television! I am familiar with both of those characters! And they are singing a song (I like songs)!
In some unknown number of years, we’ll all have to drag our asses to the Simpsons’ series finale out of some measure of obligation and read/watch dozens of retrospectives and tributes — as well we should, because there’s no white-washing the truth that the first seven seasons of this show were more groundbreaking than anything else on television. Until then, know that your decision to ignore this show in recent years has been completely validated.
Apr 27th 2010 3:16AM Yea as much as i love Jesse Tyler Ferguson, "Do Not Disturb" was awful.
Glad to see someone else actually enjoyed "Cavemen" because i though the general consensus was that it sucked. Don't get me wrong, it was far from the best sitcom, but compare it to Acording to Jim it was at least funny.
Apr 17th 2010 9:38PM I honestly think Soutland is one of the best show on TV right now. At least i can't remember a show that got my heart beating like the ending of the latest episode of southland did
Apr 14th 2010 12:14PM If they plan on following the danish version, your description of "The Killing" is dead on
Apr 1st 2010 5:05PM I agree with Jimmy! I can understand why Leno couldent say no getting his old job back, what i have a problem with is how he handled it. You can spin this how ever you want, but Leno did screw Conan out of the job, while he just shrugged and said "....oh well"
Feb 27th 2010 9:58PM How about we just watch a sitcom and have some fun? No one ever said that a sitcom had to realistic or have some kind of social commentary. Go whatch some other show if thats what you want, and let the rest of us just chill out and have fun for 25 min.
Jan 30th 2010 3:18AM Minor detail, Cindy only gives Jack 1 small bottle of vodka instead of 2. Something has definitely changed
Jan 8th 2010 5:21AM Interesting.. Whats the long math you say you did? Haveing only used Shandara's Spreadsheet, i havent gotten those results. From what i have seen, its only if you have 2 258's t9 that it would be best to keep the set bonus.
Dec 2nd 2009 11:45AM Another great episode. This show has quickly turned in to my favorite. It was also a great season ender, and a great way to set up season. I guess next year they are going to do battle with the Mayans and the Irish.
And about Half-sack, are we really sure he is dead? I mean when Chibs was blown up i thought he was dead too, but he survived it. I might just have missed in the episode. I hope he is alright though. He was one of my favorite characters!!
Nov 27th 2009 4:51AM Yea Troy an Abed's end credits are really funny. My favorite is La Biblioteca. You should check out this remix version of it feat. Señor Chang
And happy thanksgiving
