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.
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.

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.

If you don't know what I refer to,

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