I have to say, I definitely enjoy a lot of the new episodes. As far as I'm concerned, the series is in an upswing in terms of quality and I'm glad to see them stay on the air.

It feels like an army of Pacman-clones gathering just to gaze into my eyes and just laugh at me until I collapse on the floor and cry.

Alright, this won't be like my other super long reviews. This will just be nice and short...

                                                    Radioactive Man
 To start off, this was a very funny episode. To recap, a feature film for popular comic book: Radioactive Man and Milhouse gets the role of Radioactive Man's sidekick Fallout Boy. The episode started making fun of other comic (Not the funny kind of comic)books immediately. For example, there were lots of shitty superheroe comics in the Comic Book Shop like Manboy and Radiation Dude. laff The best spoof was obviously the 70's Batman spoof with all the captain pictures such as "Mint!" and "Newt!". The best scenes in this episode involved Reiner Wolfcastle (He played Radioactive Man). It was hilarious to see him try to do such easy lines as "Up and Atom!" (Up and Aadd um!) and "What do you think Fallout Boy?" (Vut do you tha ink, Fallout boy?). Milhouse eventually left due to not being able to take the fame anymore. This was discovered after the real acid crashed into Wolffastle ("My eyes! The googles do nothing!" That's one of the best lines EVER) and no one saved him...

Bart found him in the treehouse, and since Milhouse quit production was shut down. Mickey Rooney had a great guest appearance, as he tried to do everything he could...

This episode was full of good laughs and entertainment:

Wait, why do we post all the jokes out in the open and then spoiler the numerical rating? This makes no sense!

What if the post entered some kind of time hole and got posted on some ancient simpsons forum from 1995 (I don't remember which season Radioactive man is from, I assume it's one of the earlier ones) as well? For all we know, people have hated SGB since before he was born for posting all that!

It's from the beginning of season seven, so you're right that it would have aired in 1995.

And the only thing I remember about "Radioactive Man," besides Wolfcastle's meme-worthy line about the goggles doing nothing, is that it was digitally colored and thus looks a lot spiffier than the episodes that surround it. That said, I think pretty much every other season seven episode is far superior to "Radioactive Man"--but, then again, season seven is pretty brilliant. (I was just thinking about how long it's been since I've seen "Bart Sells His Soul," which has to be one of my favorite episodes of the series. I sense a rewatch of the Oakley and Weinstein seasons in my near future.)

This week's episode was a mild step-up from the last, but it was still a poor effort.

It had a handful of decent jokes though, which is better than the show usually does these days. I enjoyed the couch-gag.

I didn't like the bizarre and confused morals the episode was trying to put accross, though. I also didn't like that it's yet another episode in which Lisa has something of a boyfriend. I know they've done 499 episodes of the show, but if that means they're just going to repeat themselves, they should just stop as opposed to, you know... just repeating themselves.

I liked the role that Michael Cera played. I liked how he had this whole charm to him, and I liked how it at least ended up different than other 'Lisa gets a boyfriend moments'. I agree turnip, there were some good gags. The France/Springfield shift gag with Lisa was quite funny. I liked the whole "crazy" thing going on with Marge when she saw Sheri and Teri. (I also found their mom very weird-looking) The best gag was probably Grandpa's bones making sound effects that you would here in a violence scene...

Still, there were many flaws in this episode...frown Lets hope for a good 500th episode... 7/10

I might be wrong here, but I have a feeling that their mother appeared very early in the show's run when there were less rules about character-designs conforming to a certain standard and now when she appears, the rest of the show's design has changed so much that she just looks a bit odd.

The same thing happened with Dr. Marvin Monroe.

I just watched Season 1 of The Simpsons over the weekend. Sherri, Terri, and their father appear in the first season, but not their mother. She could have appeared in the second season, but by that time they had already figured out most of their style and design rules. It's still a possibility, though.

It was around Season 3 when they figured out the design rules. I'm not quite sure, but I'm guessing so because that's when the characters stopped looking really crappy and the voices started going to normal with the main characters. As for other characters, it took them more seasons because there was less focus on them...(Nelson used to sorta sound like Ralph)

Her first, non-canon, appearance was in the 1991 Butterfinger Ice Cream Bars commercial. The first official appearance was in 1995, in the episode Bart Sells His Soul (Season 7).

She also appears in:
The Principal and the Pauper (Season 9)
A Star is Torn (Season 16)
Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts (Season 23)
The Man in the Blue Flannel Pant (Season 23)

and yesterday's The Daughter Also Rises

In this week's episode I didn't appreciate the inaccurate telling of Pyramus and Thisbe, but I did appreciate that it was the Disney-fied version.

I follow The Simpsons on Facebook. They recently uploaded a photo album of Matt Groening's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Dedication: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150574563253697.379350.29534858696 .

I haven't seen a Simpsons episode in a while, but the "Holidays Of Future Passed" episode was the last new one I saw and it was surprisingly good. The humour and writing was like Futurama in some parts of that episode. I wonder why?

The last one was good too, except when will Lisa find her true love!?

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but in case you're being sincere, aside from it being set in the future, it was written by J. Stewart Burns who used to write for Futurama.

We get it. You're sad because you always hoped that you would be the one to find true happiness with Milhouse.

I can't fathom why the Simpsons is still even on, let alone why people still want to discuss it... especially here. I mean, we've a whole on-topic section devoted to a cartoon that's still in its prime rather than its death throes.

Well in all fairness, a lot of the posts here are rather critical. I can't really contribute much to the discussion though, because I don't give two shits about The Simpsons.

I think a lot of people like myself still watch the show out of morbid curiosity.

I stopped watching at about season 13 but I recently watched 13-22 because I had nothing better to do and wanted to see if it got any better or if there were any good episodes hiding away amongst the shit. Now I've caught up, I keep up with the show because I can't watch 499 episodes of an animated sitcom and then not persevere to the end, as grueling a task as it may be.

How many of those are any good though? It really is a prime example of quantity over quality. Congrats to Matt Groening on getting his star, although I would like to think that Futurama also played factor in that, and not just The Simpsons who already have a star themselves...
