I think there are still good moments in The Simpsons and I still watch.

I'm 26 so I don't really know life without the Simpsons so I kinda want it to keep going. They could use some new writing staff though. Maybe some of the Archer staff could help, they know their shit. They could be more racy on FXX too.

I just wish FOX would put the old seasons up on Netflix. Phone Post 3.0

Seasons 3-5 are still my favorite episodes of any television series ever, so I'll always be grateful to them for that at least, even if the series is pretty much crap now.

The show started when I was like 9, so not like I know life without it either. I was obsessed but stopped watching altogether maybe season 12?

It needs to die already.

And you will never have life without it anyway as it will be on in syndication from now until the end of time. Phone Post 3.0
