the first seasons are quite bad in terms of quality of storytelling and graphics, the latest ones mostly too obvious. love the simpsons of a few years ago. think about drug-inducing frogs, psycho-chili and most of all: the canyonero :D hhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4QgWRycd7I

Anything after Season 9 gets a little meh. Although it seems to of picked up of late.

Love it! Seasons 4 - 16 are fantastic.

avatar

Classic.

I remember watching the flrst season on Xmas eve as a kid, at my grandmas house, and my cousins kept trying to sneak peaks and getting in trouble, cause my aunt said the show was inappropriate bahahaha don't have a cow mannnnn ...times have changed ..but my love of "inappropriate" cartoons is as strong as ever and my cousins have grown into a couple lil freaks so go figure...thanks Bart!!!

Best show ever. Getting boring now

avatar

Genial

FXX!!! Why isn't this the most trending show right now? All 552 episodes in 12 days. Its probably one of the greatest tv shows of all time. All you Simpsons fans, if you haven't already, get the Simpsons Tapped Out game for your phone. They're doing a special Clash of Clans promotion right now and its the dopeness

difficult to rate; obviously the first several seasons are superb, but it has infamously just gotten worse ever since

i correct myself, till season 13

For years I have faithfully watched this programme. I have loved most of the storys, and enjoyed how they were able to keep it fresh and current. That being said, I have no idea what they are trying to achieve with Season 28. To say it has lost its magic is just not words enough. The characters have undergone subtle changes which leave you wondering where the guys we have been watching for the past 27 years have gone. The plot lines are too complex and the stories donโ€™t flow. An attempt to bring in as many characters in one episode as possible means that it is hard to connect with 1 or 2 characters, as was always the case. The music/score has been cut down, taking away from the feel of the storyline, and only short clips are on offer. This in line with the long pauses between lines makes you wonder if there has been a major budget cut in this area. Overall, the storylines have become rather depressing, offering very few laughs, chuckles or โ€œAwwwโ€ moments. I would love to see the old format returned. Us loyal fans and the generations still to discover this little slice of animation history, deserve it.

I think the Simpsons are the best TV show for the whole family in history.

avatar

One of the best shows ever until about season 9. After season 9 the show becomes mediocre to downright bad.

I have tried to keep my love for this show alive, I really have. But it just never gives me any laughs and I feel I just watch it out of habit. The Simpson's is a classic so I would never advocate its cancellation. But perhaps they need new writers with fresh ideas and modern dialogue/character concepts? The main issue for me is that the show just seems slow. Lisa's feminism and veganism isn't fresh any more, it's not a controversial subject in 2021. Bart doesn't seem "that bad" of a kid when you consider how awful children are these days. Homer and Marge - their relationship just has no umf! Anyway I do love the show and I feel a sense of loyalty. But tbh, it's just not funny or interesting to me any more.

I can't say I have watched all those series (at least not yet...).

But I have compiled the best episodes for each of them.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
