The Simpsons will have to go off the air sometime, I don't want them to but in realistic terms there's only so many stories that can be written about Springfield & there's hardly any left.
 Another thing that would prevent the show from never going off air is the fact that the voice cast is'nt going to live for ever. Maybee I grabbed the wrong end off the stick & what you meant was that they will never stop repeating it when it does finnish.
 But it will finnish sometime.

I dunno where I read it, but I know for a fact, that the simpsons will have ATLEAST 6 more seasons of pure crap.  Sadly, that is the truth.

No, it seriously will never go off the air. The writers made a pact with satan, and they are guaranteed to never be cancelled.

When Futurama dries up, I'll be there to work on the Simpson movies. And when they dry up, I'll still be there to work on the Futurama movies.

Even though there are a lot more poor episodes of The Simpsons these days I still think that it's worth carrying on because every season has it's redeeming moments like in season 10 we had the excellent "30 Minutes over Tokyo" & in season 12 we had "Trilogy of error", If they stopped at season 9 then we would never had these masterpieces to watch.
 Anyway it's not doing any harm if they carry on till season 20 because it's free entertainment & if you don't like them then nobody's making you watch them. I expect that if they did stop making them then people would soon miss watching new episodes & partitions would be made to ressurect the show. I know that there would be an emptynus inside me if they stopped now & I believe it's a good thing if The Simpsons continue being made because one day a season might be made that surprises us all.
 Do you really want them to end on a low because that's what would happen if they stopped now.

Ok, here's the ultimate Simpsons season 13 thread. You guys can review the new episodes here, and also talk about Dennis Weaver.

Apparantly there will be 3 Simpsons movies which will follow after The Simpsons stops being made for TV. Sarge, do you know anything about this? Work may have even started on the movies but they will be held over until the demise of the TV show.

It would make sense for the scripts to be already written so that the voice cast will be able to voice the movies now before they get a pay rise.

I'm assuming they don't have anything written yet. The voice actors are signed on to do three movies, but that doesn't mean there WILL be three movies.

I think there will be three movies because eveyrone will be mourning the loss of the TV show, & lets face it, even if the 1st movie is'nt that great it's bound to make a huge profit. I think that if the trillogy of Simpsons movies is made that they will be great & should contain references from episodes.

I hope Al Jean does fix the show at least a bit, as he created some of the better old school episodes. But keep in mind that he is gonna direct other people, some of them that came up with the stupid slapstick jokes of past seasons. I hope Jean isn't going to green-light these kinds of jokes and throw away most of the satire.

The plots, too. They are supposed to make fun of family values and the common American. I don't think a safari trip to Africa has anything to do with that. Lisa better make up her mind already about what religion she wants to join. In 'Homer Vs. the 8th Commandment' she was a perfect Christian model. She turned atheist in 'Lisa the Skeptic'.
Now she wants to be a buddhist? Wowee wow wow! Now we're really living in Bizarro world! Stuff like that throws away years of character development.

Nevertheless, I'm 90% certain this is going to be a better season.

The Simpson movie(s) won't be started till the TV show is thoroughly finished. (How many times must I repeat this same boring info?)
And for your added info, I work on Futurama now. Both season 4 of Futurama & season 13 of the Simpsons are near ending their production seasons (which is a lot earlier than the TV seasons).

So...is anyone gonna review it?

I found it to be pretty crappy. I've already bitched about how the premise is crappy, but now that I've seen the episode in full, I can say the jokes are crappy too.

I sure could go for some Futurama right about now.

Why did you say that? This thread has been dead for 1 month so if you say that as an answer to a previous remark then it's a little late.

If you say that in relation to the new posts in the thread then I don't see why because knowone said it would be before the TV show finnished, I clearly said that if they get made, it would be after the demise of the TV show.

He was responding to YOUR post that you just made. The one where you asked him if he knew anything about the movies...try to keep up.

Funny, I don't recall the Simpsons being cancelled any time lately
------------------
Let me tell you a story. About a Liquid Emperor with the mysterious name of Nixorbo who ruled the happy land of PEEL in days of yore. He and his fair empress Velourfog ruled wisely and the people was happy. Some say that he never existed, that he was just a myth created by the storytellers of that time. Some say that he was drunk by a powerful man named [-mArc-]. But, children, isn't there always a grain of truth behind myths?

I heard the Simpsons just got the 'official' okay last week for seasons 14 & 15.

"It would make sense for the scripts to be already written so that the voice cast will be able to voice the movies now before they get a pay rise."

That's not how Hollywood works. Besides, they already got a pay raise this Spring.

What I meant to say is if they get made, they would be premiered in cinemas after the demise of the TV show. Thus work may have begun on them like scripts but they will not show the movies until the TV show is finnished. My mistake.

Well a friend of mine was watching it too, and he made some comments to me via AIM.

"Ehhh"

"Ehhh"

"Who wrote this?"

"They didn't really think this through, did they"

"Haha, Poncho"

I was confused. Wouldn't the first ruling had been official even though he didn't bang the gavel before he went on break? I'm just curious. I liked "He reminds me of me when I was a little boy." Also, the chalkboard writing "No one reads these anymore."

Keep in mind peoples, this was a CABFxx episode, which means that Mike Scully was in charge of this episode. It is a whole new season, but the PRODUCTION season doesn't begin until next week, with the first DABFxx episode airs. This'll be Al Jean's first production for season 13.

11-18-01 - I have no idea what the name was

Bad episode.  Non-sensical plot, bad jokes, and a lame guest appearance (REM thought Homer was a millionaire, even after coming to his house) combine to make one of the dumbest episodes I have ever seen.

"Homer the Moe"

Truly stupid.  I thought I remebered a roaring laugh I had during the show, but I remembered I had just read someone's post to the "Label Game" thread.  I agree with Nixorbo about the plotlessness.  The addition of REM didn't help at all.  I recall saying earlier how much I despised "Tennis the Menace" because the guest stars didn't come out until the very end.  I stand by my theory that the suits looked at their ratings and tried to determine what demographics they weren't reaching, and added a sellout guest star to bridge the gap.

I also must reiterate my longing for the Simpsons days of yore when guest stars played characters instead of themselves.  Some of my favorite episodes starred Dustin Hoffman, Beverly D'Angelo, and Kelsey Grammer.

I agree with Just Chris on the way the Lisa has changed.  In truth, they've all changed a bit.  Some changes are good, but complete character reversals are strange and dangerous.

I don't think Season 13 will be added to my, until recently, complete collection.

In the tennis one, at least they had a point to show up.  REM just randomly showed up.  And is it just me or are the Simpsons descending into Family Guy/South Park gutter humor?

It's not just you. This episode was pretty crappy. I laughed at a couple of things, mostly in spite of myself.

And what was the deal with Moe and his dying professor? I'm sure it was from a movie...

It's gutter humor, but at least Family Guy did it with class (and by 'class' I mean non-South Park idiocy, not actual class).

My Homer the Moe review:...
This episode was definitely unfortunate and worse than the Parent Rap, this season's première. I thought it didn't stand up to its name, as Homer was only 'Moe' for about 5 minutes of the episode. Some parts didn't make sense either, like where Moe's professor walked in to the river and Homer, Lenny, Carl and Barney not being welcome to go to Moe's seemed a bit like something I've seen before. Anyway, I've seen better.
Grade: C+.

It was basically Flaming Moe's with elements of the Homer-as-an-artist episode thrown in. You know, I really miss Homer the oaf, and can't wait to see the last of Homer the evil loutish bastard.

OK, I just saw The Parent Rap today, and where as it wasn't nearly as bad as Homer the Moe, it was still pretty bad.  Rather unbelieveable plot elements, and am I the only one tired of seeing Homer losing large amounts of blood?
