The Simpsons is my favorite television series ever and I'm glad it still going strong after 25 long years. The stories are not as heartwarming and hilarious as seasons 1-10, but I still tune in every week to see my favorite yellow family and laugh myself silly. Hopefully the simpsons will go on until one of the main characters' voice actor dies, because it'd be disrespectful to continue the show without, let's say Dan Castallaneta.

I watched alot of the simpsons growing up. It seems to have gotten stale. And their show has indeed become manipulative in its values and seems to sway away from core comedic roots. Now like many others like south park, the simpsons has become too involved in territory I dont believe any comedy should get involved in. Just because theres so much ill water.

Show never disappoints. Movie was golden and the 2 week marathon on FXX is legendary. The new seasons keep the show good. I'll admit the Simpsons hasn't been as good recently last couple seasons as I stopped watching cuz of school but I got back to watching season 25 and I'm enjoying it immensely. Glad they cancelled American Dad. The Family Guy crossover looks absolutely hilarious and I don't even say that about Family Guy anymore haha
