Tell GR: After 500 Episodes, Do The Simpsons Still Have It?
Posted on Tuesday, February 21 @ 17:52:17 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
I just watched the 500th episode of The Simpsons (although our forums have been all over it since before it aired).It's gone from a show I wasn't allowed to watch as a young child, to a show more timid that 90% of what's on TV now. But that's not what I'm wondering about.
If you haven't seen the show in a while, the general concensus is that The Simpsons was great several years ago, but has since gone downhill. No one wants to see it canceled, but "it just ain't what it used to be". At 500 episodes, does The Simpsons have what it takes to continue? Is it still funny?
I genuinely laughed at a few points throughout the 500th episode, in which the entire town of Springfield ditches the family only to discover that they want them back. Seriously, it was pretty good. Some of the visual gags have that mile-a-minute writing the series used to be known for, but enough about what I think. Tell me what you think:
Do The Simpsons still have it?
