After seeing the latest episode of the simpsons..... I think they are purposely making the newer episodes bad until they put Futurama back on. I mean jesus.... the new episodes of the Simpsons are terrible.

Because in the episode, a guy says "Why did they cancel Futurama?" and jumps off a cliff.

Discuss? lol

I don't believe Matt Groening would make them purposely bad. I think he just wants FOX to know that Futurama is a great show and they shouldn't have canceled it. I also think they are bad because after 15 seasons, you are bound to run out of good ideas...

It seems highly unlikely Matt Groening would intentionally sabotage his own creation. The Futurama thing was a little in-joke possibly tinged with the slightest bit of genuine resentment.

Especially the creation that made him rich and famous. By making bad episodes on purpose, i think it would backfire on him, showing that he isnt a creative or original as he once was, then they will definitely not bring back his "B" Show.

"B" show?  No.  Just no.  Also, not saying this is a bad thread, but it'll probably get closed for the topic name.

Like Digital Dragon said, Matt Groening would never sabotage the show that made people take notice of him.
To be honest, I hardly saw any of this season's episodes, but the season finale did have some really good lines, ie, "Yup, I pulled a Jesus!"
But, anyway, the suicide line I think was made more as a friendly joke towards people like us who spend all our time obsessing over Futurama. Afterall, Matt Groening is aware of this message board and his cult following and would never try and ruin the show that started it all.

This is a bad thread. It's based upon a stupid suggestion and it deserves not just to be closed, but closed inside an iron maiden and fired into the sun.

Note the quotation marks though- I think most of us here agree that Futurama is a far better show than The Simpsons, but you have to admit, Futurama has a much lower profile.

To borrow heavily from a certian episode of some show.

Alright, Simpsons can be crummy show A, and Futurama can be show one, or the fighting mongooses, thats a good team name, the fighting mongooses.

Yeah, although we think Futurama is better than the Simpsons, I am sure there are many, MANY more that would disagree. Not that I am one of them.

Those poor pathetic fools. Actually most people I know do agree that Futurama is better than the Simpsons (especially recently) and would far prefer to watch re-runs of it, than a brand new episode of the Simpsons.

i hope that's why.. cuz i dont know, i dont think the new simpsons are terrible compared to other current shows (in general) but when you place them beside older simpsons, they are under par.

Conspiracy theories about Matt Groening?
It's not likely he'd do that to his own show, the show that propelled him to celebrity status.

I doubt Matt G. would do that to the Simpsons. I guess it's just getting harder and harder to find fresh new ideas for a family of 5. But for a guy frozen for 1000 years, a robot, and a one-eyed chick...think of the possibilities!

It may have a lower profile, but that doesn't mean it's worse.  Think about it.  Take someone who hates The Simpsons.  They think: Hey, everyone watches it.  It has to be good.  That's like saying: Look at all the people who smoke.  It must be the right thing to do.  And it's FOX's fault that Futurama has a lower profile.  People just think it's worse.  It's a damn shame.
