No. However, I do plan to go back and watch all these low grade simpsons episodes one day. I will report back to the simpsons quote thread, with all the quotes that are funny. I want to see if it truly is as bad as people say it is.
Thing for me is The Simpsons went really awful for a long time, then the 'new' style animation ones came out, IIRC like season 22 onwards and its given the show a bit of a breath of fresh air, its different comedy to that of the great Simpsons episodes of the past, but I think some can be quite funny.
I thought last season was one of the better seasons in quite some time. I'll check out this new season. The cast signed a 2 year deal for a considerable less amount of money than in previous years. I think FOX cut back on the shows they ordered as well.
FOX was ready to cancel the show last year. There is a possibility that this season could be the last season. However I think they want to get to 25 years, so I would think it ends after season 25.
I'm hoping the writers have something left in the tank.
