season 10

I've herd some people go all the way up to the movie for when Zombie Simpsons begins so idk.

>>78355331
Actually this episode exactly, OP, how did you know?
>>
>>78355331
Simpsons declined over time. For me this was when I first cringed.

season 8 was the transition

I'll let you know when it ends.
>>
>>78355331
beginning was season 8.
>>
>>78355331
Season 8 and 9 had a few rare off moments, but are generally still classic,

Season 10 is where I'd say it became apparent that they've ran out of ideas.

Season 17 is where I'd say they mostly stopped even trying.

Pic related.

It wasn't a bad episode, but it wasn't good either, and really felt like it was the start of the dumb story ideas trend that the Simpsons would later become.

Eh, mirkin era already started that, with Bart Gets an Elephant.

Homer's Enemy.

I know lots of people really like it, but I never did. It was too meta, too self-aware. The focus wasn't on stories anymore, it was a satire of itself.

But while I consider that the beginning, Seasons 8 and 9 weren't half bad a whole, but 10 was when I stopped watching regularly. Man, that was sixteen years ago.
>>
>>78355331
Honestly, I know precisely where I drew the line.

Episode 300. Bunch of hype on the tv for it, watched it, completely unenjoyable and cringe-worthy. Knew that Simpsons would pretty much be like that from then on, so stopped.

I mean, Bart The Fink is really the earliest offender isn't it?

So how many times have they rehashed the Bart and Lisa grow up/future episode?
>>
>>78365633
4-5-6 times and all of them essentially the same episode over and over and over.

"Behind the Laughter"

God-awful ironic meta-jokes for 20 minutes.

When watching the FXX Simpsons marathon, what's the episode that made you think "wow, this is ALREADY fucking terrible"?

For me, pic related
>>
>>78367400
Meme episode
>>
>>78355331

Even that episode had some funny gags and one-liners. Like when Judge Trudy is reprimanding Marge and Homer for destroying her boat home.

"My grandmother made me that quilt!"
"So... it cost you nothin'."
>>
>>78367498
Mostly because you people have nothing better to do than bitch and whine about a show that stopped being good damn near twenty years ago.

Go outside, get some friends or something. Christ.

idk, it's just a bad as fuck episode. there's no reason to read that much more into it.
>>
>>78370888
I have a friend whose family recorded Simpsons episodes on VHS... I have friends, and they talk about modern Simpsons being bad.
>>
>>78355560
seasons 8-12 is the curve heading into the shithouse after that, anyone who says otherwise has no taste
