It’s all so much better with the TMNT theme song.

Watched a few of the new Simpsons episodes the other day. Yep, still bad. Their voices have changed due to the actors aging and they don’t sound the same and instead of copying the great formula from the 90s where they’d have a plot with jokes naturally flowing through it, they’ve gone with this weird joke heavy system.

The newer seasons start with a plot, then jump from bad joke to throw away joke regardless if it suits the character in question and then ends with little resolution to the story. *sigh*

I haven’t watched The Simpsons in a good long while. Definitely one of those shows that kept going far past its prime.

I thought The Simpsons died about 10 years ago Gasp
I had no idea they still made the show.

Yeah, they’re on season 26 now and they’ve just signed a new deal with Fox to keep it going for at least another two seasons. It’s still a big name and brings in the money. It’s also thought off Family Guy etc and is still better (IMO) as Family Guy relies on shock comedy which became stale pretty quick.

To be fair, I’ve watched more now and there’s been some good ones. Marge opens a sandwich shop had me laughing and Bart’s new friend was decent too. The newer ones aren’t all bad, just not up their with the 90s ones. But, I suppose writers come and go and with a show going on this long, they’re bound to struggle every now and then.

It’s going to be tough now that Harry Shearer has left now mind. He won’t be in season 27 onwards and he voices loads of characters. Mr.Burns, Smithers, Seymour Skinner, Ned Flanders, Kent Brockman, Reverend Lovejoy, Dr.Hibbert, Lenny Leonard, Rainier Wolfcastle, Dr.Marvin Monroe and some minor others. They said they’re looking for a replacement…

Finished 3rd season of The Thick of It. Figured I’d need some warm up before they release all Veep season 4 episodes so I took the time to watch the original. Just as I thought, the British original isn’t quite as polished as its American equivalent in terms of story plots, but characters and jokes are much better. I don’t know why anyone would swap Malcolm Tucker for Jonad (pun intended)!? Jonad is a joke and complete waste of time in Veep. On the other hand, someone like Malcolm is entirely missed. His charisma is matched only by JLD, but challenged by no one else, not even the opposition. Frown

Yeah, I can never believe it when someone says they like Family Guy is (much) better. Especially after seeing that one (or rather two) South Park episode(s) where they go to the Family Guy writers’ room. After that the pattern is so obvious Grin

Anyways, the best animation always was Futurama Smile

Yeah, Futurama works well as most of its world is flexible and can easily be changed to suit a story. Shame it’s had such a turbulent life really. South Park can be funny, but Family Guy and American Dad both went down the route of shocking which, as we’ve seen, isn’t sustainable.

But Family Guy IS better. Or at least it was during its first 6-7 seasons (and especially the first three). Ideally it should have ended after 6 seasons, The Simpsons after 10, but well, when have they ever stopped (and wrapped up - simply axing it doesn’t count) a series before it outstayed its welcome? (And Six Feet Under, The Wire, Deadwood and Battlestar Galactica don’t count. Tongue)

Man, I miss Deadwood. Battlestar Galactica fizzled toward the end, but Deadwood was just consistently wonderful.

Battlestar didn’t overstay, but the final series and finale was so disappointing… Frown

This reminds that I still haven’t seen the new Futurama seasons after the revival.
The first 4 seasons are top animation but the movies after weren’t very good…

Me neither! I’m not sure where I could see them, though? And is there any place to see them for free, or are they all behind some subscription fee, like Netflix or such…
