Ah, The Simpsons. Possibly the most successful sitcom of all time. And while it was arguably the most clever and funny show back in the 1990s, some say that the show has died and reached an inescapable hole. Some say it did so in Seasons 9 and 10. Some say it was 11 and 12. Others say it was 13 to 16, or later. And some say it hasn't at all. So, I ask you this: Do you think The Simpsons has died? And if so, when, and why?
I wouldn't quite say the show has died, but yes, I would admit that it has declined in quality over the years. Seasons 3 - 8 was absolutely brilliant comedy, but in Seasons 9 - 12 it started to lose the cleverness that it used to have, instead becoming funnier and focusing in supporting characters more. And, though I haven't seen much of Seasons 13 and later, of what I have seen (eg. most of Seasons 13 to 17) I can so that it has declined. But I wouldn't quite say that it has 'died' quite yet - I mean, I still prefer modern episodes to Family Guy or South Park.
