What season did you stop watching every Simpsons episode?

Up until this year I had watched every Simpsons episode, even as the quality has consistently decreased. This season I watched the first couple of episodes, but missed a couple when I was busy. Though I could have watched them online and the new ones since, I haven't, and have no desire to. I just watch Bob's Burgers and turn Fox off. So my question is: up until which season have you watched every Simpsons episode.

Longggggg ass time ago. Man I can't even remember when. I remember when the "Itchy & Scratchy Land" was new and the Simpsons were falling off. It was a year or two after that season for sure.

Somewhere between 9-13. Season 8 was still gold, but after that I was just kind of hanging around awhile to see what would happen to my favourite characters, then I stopped caring.

Well that's season 6, and if you watched 2 years afterwords that puts you at season 9-13, which is when I expect most people stopped watching.

I can recall watching it pretty regularly in university, which was the early 2000s, but by the time I was done, it was no longer a priority. So seasons 14-20, I guess. I haven't seen a new episode in years.

The last DVD boxset I have is the 11th series, and if I hadn't got them when I was younger and realised how terrible they are I would have stopped at 10, probably.

I never watched the episodes from the golden years when they originally aired, but in the past few months I started watching the show in chronological order - two episodes most nights. IIRC it started to get pretty inconsistent around seasons 9-10, but was still watchable up until 13-14 or so. After that I couldn't really take it anymore and switched to watching all of the King of the Hill episodes in order.

Really good poll question.

I feel like The Simpsons decline is directly due to their response to Family Guy. Randomness was all the rage and King of comedy. While I like Family Guy and think its funny, it is definitely lower brow, especially in its first set of seasons. The Simpsons had been about putting a complete story each episode but gave into the randomness craze and started to write episodes that had 2 or 3 unrelated stories that happened to occur at the same time. That's when I stopped watching.

The Simpsons lost their mojo between Seasons 18-20, but got it back shortly after the switch to widescreen format. I think it has been on par with Bob's Burgers and Family Guy these last few years. American Dad has been my favorite for quite a while.

Finally said **** it, at 13.

Originally selected 9-13, because that seemed about right. But after thinking about it, season 13 was 2002, I was in grade 9 and probably still watched every episode.

1997 or 1998, it's been a long time since I've seen a new episode. So, season 9 or 10.

Somewhere around 10-11. I can't believe that as many episodes as I did watch, there are probably more that I haven't. It's too bad because the show was so good that I wanted it to be a series that I knew every episode from but it just became too much of a chore.

I think the Maude's death episode is a good focal point for when I really gave up on the series, but I noticed it starting to suck considerably before then. I just tolerated it because there were enough decent episodes during the season at the time to keep me watching if only out of habit.

Scully taking over is (rightly or wrongly) cited by many as when The Simpsons started to go downhill.

I blame Matt Groening ultimately. It's easy to focus on the peons, but he's the God Emperor of that series and nothing gets done without his approval.

I'm thinking around season 8, but I feel like I've seen some episodes up to 10... but I'll still go 1-8.
