Can't stand it. It's as retarded as Family Guy but worse.

Yeah, it is as retarded as Family Guy, but that's not why it's bad. Family Guy is funny because it's retarded, whereas The Cleveland show is retarded (and mildly amusing) but completely uninteresting at the same time. That's why it's bad.

This show needs to be cancelled, and fast. It pisses me off that this unimaginative piece of crap is allowed to stay on air.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooow at people saying The Simpsons was good up until 2005 and season 16.
Wow. Well, I guess you guys are younger and you try to hold on to your good thoughts of The Simpsons for as long as you can. I liked it up until season 11. Even that was probably a season or two too far, but I guess it's hard to face the reality that The Simpsons just isn't very good anymore.

Which season did everyone stop liking The Simpsons?

Honestly? Season 7 was the first noticeable dip in quality for me. The show was still very smart and funny, but I noticed that it no longer made me laugh until near-crying.

Still, seasons 7 and 8 are good enough where I now group them with seasons 2-6 as "the good years".

Season 9 was funny, but the stories and characters seemed dumbed down a bit. I forgave it at the time because the show was still funny--but by season 10, the "funny" was absent in a large number of episodes. I think season 11 is when I stopped liking it and season 12 is when I stopped watching it with any regularity.

Good thread, BirthdayClown!

I said that I think the show was WATCHABLE up through season 15 (as in, season 16 and on actually hurt me to watch). I think it started being somewhat unpleasant after season 11.

Interesting that season 7 is the first noticable dip in quality for you, FishyJoe. A large number of Simpsons fans I know agree that season 8 was the greatest Simpsons season.

In hindsight, I don't disagree. Season 8 has a lot of strong episodes.

But season 6 was so so funny...every Monday I would go to school and talk about last night's episode with all of my friends. Then season 7 came, and so many of the episodes were just boring. Marge gets a new dress and becomes friends with rich snobs? Lisa becomes a vegetarian? Lisa learns the truth about Jebediah Springfield?

At the time, I didn't respect a good story in a sitcom like I do now...but even then, I'd watch these episodes and think "do the writers really think anybody cares about this stuff?" I much preferred the absurd stories from season six, like the Shelbyville lemon tree and Itchy & Scratchy Land. (You could make the argument that nonsense like that paved the way for the cartooney crap in later seasons...but I still really respect the lunacy of season 6).

Regarding Simpsons, the decline in quality for me was around about the time that Maude Flanders got killed off. Maudes death itself obviously had nothing to do with the decline in quality (she was a poor character anyway), but the drop in quality just happened to be around that time for me.

Fishy, how is season 1 not one of the "good" years? I haven't seen any of the eps in a while, but looking through the list, they're all classics! Go back to that school and talk to the children of your old friends. They'll set you straight.

The Simpsons went down for me in Season 9. Season 8 had a few small signs of decline, but in Season 9 it become obvious. Then Season 10 was worse, and Season 11 was terrible. 12 a little better, and after then it's mainly miss rather than hit...

Season 12 better than season 11? Not even close.

I'm a fan of the first 6-7 seasons, which I consider classic Simpsons; after that, to me it started to drop a little.

Stop beating around the bush & tell us what you really think.

I enjoy the Family Guy series, but this show seems pointless to me.

Animation domination? More like Seth McFarlane domination, am I right?

I actually only find American Dad bearable now, among his creations.
