There is no "eh" option. I don't care either way. I don't really think about it.

I have seen an episode dubbed in German. It's *horrible.* The voices are NOTHING alike.

Have a nice day,
Kelly :)

Used to be brilliant, now it's embarrassingly bad.
For the most part it seems. There seems to be way too many relationship related episodes recently.

But there have been 1 or 2 good eps this season. Redeems it a little.

I liked episode 12 of the current (series 20) "no loan again naturally", when homer spends all the houses equity on parties, loses his home, and has to be a tennant of ned flanders.

Brilliant!

I prefer the older episodes. I was a regular viewer up until around their 9th season (or thereabouts) at which point their storylines started pushing me away. I haven't watched the show in a long time.

I have the first five seasons on DVD. I stopped there because they released the sixth season with that stupid box format, and I could never be bothered messing around with shipping, etc., to get the real box from them. Their loss.

Who wants a big fat head sitting on their shelf along with their other DVDs?!

I am a fan, always have been. I remember my mother once banned me from watching it when I was little because I mooned my sister, an idea inspired by Bart. :p

Same here. On the basis of the first nine seasons, it's my favorite show ever. After that, it goes downhill fast, and I haven't watched new episodes in a long time.

The "head box" thing was only a problem with season six. I guess they got so many complaints about it that they started issuing them in normal boxes again after that. I have seasons 1-9 on DVD, and only season six is a "head box."

I used to like it. Then Family Guy made it seem like amateur material. Never found it as enjoyable since.

I sort of agree, in that The Simpsons started to go downhill at about the same time that Family Guy premiered. The timing is maybe just a coincidence, but I've always been struck by it nonetheless. I'm not a huge Family Guy fan (though at its best its great), and I don't prefer it to the classic years of The Simpsons, but its been a much much better show this decade than The Simpsons has been.

That's like comparing apples and oranges. As for preference while i'll take any season of family guy to any current season of the simpsons I would watch any of the first 9 seasons of the simpsons over any family guy. The simpsons is an animation masterpiece comparable to the flinstones where as in 10 or 20 years I doubt many people will care much about family guy or southpark.

I don't really like the newer seasons. I liked it more when the show wasn't so cartoony and more about adult issues if that makes sense.

The Simpsons is one of my favorite shows! I watch it every week and love it.

Has anyone seen the Simpsons Mosvie? It was hillarious!

I don't think it's funny at all. What makes me laugh is more subtle humor or when someone accidentally gets hurt. This makes me laugh, rather than The Simpsons:

It was great 10 years ago. It's been bad since then. They tried to make it too mainstream or something. Family Guy has become much better.
