I feel awful when I enjoy an episode, because the only reason I tune in for each new episode is to hate the series I once loved. When The Simpsons offers up an enjoyable episode, I just feel like shit for liking it. I'd much prefer each new episode to be awful so I can end my weekend on a down note.
Not at all. They still have a great wit that fllares up here and there. I couldnt stop laughing at the scene in Money Bart (Season 22) with Homer frowning at Marge then falling asleep. Thoroughly enjoyed that.
