Continuing the topic from the previous thread somewhat tongue,  I must say I always mistake "Hungry, Hungry Homer" for a golden era episode. That is, until I see it.
I guess I liked it at the time it aired, which it did repeatedly, so it's stuck with me. I know the later pre-HD seasons are crap, but because I saw the episodes quite a few times, not to mention I was a kid during most of the first airings, I still enjoy watching them. The struggle to finish watching episodes did not start until the switch to HD.
I cannot distinguish seasons 11-17. I know the quality declined overall. But I cannot pinpoint what season an episode comes from just by watching it.  It's all a big lump of mostly almost-good episodes enjoyed because it was The Simpsons.

C_T : Rewatched Days of Future Future. What bothers me is the implication that the episode is canon. I can say it isn't as well-written as I first thought, I must've been caught up with the Futurama-esque story/setting. I still feel pretty good about Simpsorama though.

I feel the same way about "Hungry Hungry Homer". In my memory, it sort of feels like something that should have happened in season 11 or 12, but then I actually rewatch it and it's not really up to the standards of even those years.

And those implications really bother me, too, but I don't think they're any worse than a whole load of other canon-destroying crap that's happened in the last 10 years of the show. I mean, hell, "Simpsorama" is almost certainly going to canonically place Futurama as the future of the universe depicted in The Simpsons. They've damaged the show's legacy as much as is possible unless the show suddenly becomes really racist or something of that nature. I'm just rolling with the punches at this point.

"Days of Future Future" is full of flaws, but it's also actually funny in a few places which is more than enough to make it one of the better Al Jean era episodes. I never said it was a good episode; I just put it in my list of episodes that were almost good.

It's from season 12, though...

Ha, butter my arse. I just looked it up and I do like "Hungry Hungry Homer". I gave it a 7/10.

I don't know seasons 11 and 12 like the back of my hand like I do 1-10.

So yeah, ignore my previous post; I like "Hungry Hungry Homer" as opposed to feeling like I like it but not actually liking it.

They are an family whom lives in Springfield.  The family is made up of a dad, the Homer, a Marge, the mom, Lisa and Bart and the baby too.  Also there is the dog who helps Santa, as well as, the snowball cat.  They visit the country church with his grandpa and also work at every profession ever.  They have been everywhere and done everything that can be possible.  Homer is also visiting the bar every night after his works when he does.  This was another time when that was acceptable, now he marries the gays I think.  It is a comedy show, and I think you will be impress.

I doubt they'd actually show the dead character in scenes in heaven. I'd say it's probably either a dream sequence, like you said, or some kind of sketch on his show - perhaps because he's retiring?

I guess the Sideshow Bob family won't be that involved in the episode. Plus, the death could always just be a sideplot seperate from the Krusty story (though it's pretty obvious it's gonna be the Rabbi).

Really interesting interview from Al, Matt, and Mirkin (apparently The Man Who Came To Be Dinner was co-wrote by Al Jean and David Mirkin).

On one hand, I generally agree with that point. But on the other hand, it's easy to see why the writers can be so dismissive of the fan backlash. The online fanbase has always had a very vocal portion of people shitting on whatever the newest batch of episodes may be, looooong before it was warranted.

Quote
Old Online Review for Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming:

"That was a well-plotted piece of non-claptrap that never made me want to retch." 2F02 being the exception, I never like Sideshow Bob episodes. They're appealing, but just not funny. This one had too many FOX swipes and not much plot development, and the conclusion was rather hasty. My Grade: D+.

At least Al Jean acknowledged that they might be defensive. And while it doesn't change the fact about show's quality, there's some truth in what they said about opinion depending on when you start watching.

All I can say, so far, is that the term "Seen from a mile away" has never been so prominent.

It was made by legendary animator Don Hertzfeldt, known for his Oscar-nominated short-film "Rejected".

The episode itself seemed better than average fare for The Simpsons, these days, if you ask me, but it was still poor and the death was who it was obviously going to be since the episode was announced (along with the hint that the actor won an Emmy for the role) and the plot was just Krusty retires for, what? The fifth time or something.

Eh. That was kind of bad. The story and pacing just weren't good. Too much stuff for emotions and B-plot to play out. Couch gag was certainly interesting.

The episode was mediocre. Nothing actively terrible about it, though it didn't get more than a few small chuckles out of me.

That couch gag, on the other hand... Holy fuckballs. That was completely fucking batshit insane - in the best possible way. Definitely my favourite of all the "guest couch gags" thus far. smile

The Wreck of the Relationship was maybe better than first one. I guess it was simpler take on their relationship, which is kind of good, but it was also too corny. Or the premise is just used too much.

I also don't get how there can be so much unnecessary subplots and unfunny jokes that are too silly or just dumb in general.

For some reason I watched last week's new episode of the Simpsons, and then I watched last night's new episode too. I don't keep up with new Simpsons at all, but I've been so bored lately (by bored I mean unemployed) that I thought I might as well see how shitty the show is.

It does manage to give me a smile or a laugh in places, but goddamn the plots are what I'd expect of a Simpsons Comic.

"Super Franchise Me" was just horrible. So, so, so horrible. The best part was Marge saying ďItís like they donít care if you make money as long as they make money. What kind of company does that?Ē and then the FOX logo and fanfare briefly appearing. The plot was just so ridiculous and shitty, and that ending was so abrupt and odd.

I couldn't help but notice Tress MacNeille voiced Trudy Zengler. And the couch gag just reminded me of the end credits of Extras.

In regards to last week's episode, I enjoyed Nick Offerman's guest role, but the B-plot was super weak. The main plot was fairly weak, too, to be honest.
