I wouldn't go that far. Simpsons has evolved, but I wouldn't say it's stopped being funny. There's a reason it's still around. It's because people watch it and are entertained by it. Matt Groening has had the foresight to keep the Simpsons a "living" thing by changing it slightly with the times. I think a movie has big potential as long as they don't let someone else take the reigns.

jayhawk88 (160512) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772682)

Nope, this comes from "Deep Space Homer" (I think that's the name), the one where Homer gets launched into space with Buzz Aldrin and Race Bannon. At one point in the episode Homer accidently breaks a container containing an ant colony (Now they'll never know if ants can be trained to sort tiny screws in space!), just as the news is breaking in with live coverage. The world gets a shot of what looks to be a giant ant (floating right next to the shuttle camera).

Anchor Kent Brockman draws the only assumption that can be drawn: (stolen from snpp.com)

Kent: Ladies and gentlemen, er, we've just lost the picture, but, uh, what we've seen speaks for itself. The Corvair spacecraft has been taken over -- "conquered", if you will -- by a master race of giant space ants. It's difficult to tell from this vantage point whether they will consume the captive earth men or merely enslave them. One thing is for certain, there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

Karma Whores

Karma is a scoring system on Slashdot meant to reward "good" posting and punish "bad" posting. The goal is that people who repeatedly post offensive, offtopic, or otherwise unwanted messages will be punished with a lower visibility of their messages, and those who post informative, insightful, or otherwise desirable messages are rewarded with a higher visibility. Karma whores are individuals, or messages themselves, that attempt to receive feedback in the form of karma points. Often these will be needless information (such as a link to a wikipedia article relevant to the subject being discussed), or a message of a political nature that is in synch with the "groupthink" so that it will be moderated upwards by people who agree with the stance expressed in the message.

As long as they have a scene dedicated to jumping a shark I'll go see it. I just started watching the Simpsons again because it is on before Family Guy and it's amazing at how well written it is after all these years. I always expected they'd add a "Poochie" for real. The naming of the Comic Book Guy episode was funny, too bad I forgot his name.

Simpsons isn't funny any more. Same old gags, same lines, every episode has a celebrity appearance. BOOOORING!

So, instead of ending on a high note, the Simpsons keeps sinking lower and lower and lower and lower.

Oh, I know. For added humor, let's have a scene where Homer chokes Bart, because it's new and clever. That would be funny. Ha ha.

Re:Please just kill it... (1)

garett_spencley (193892) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772513)

I agree that the Simpsons aren't funny anymore .. but not because it's the same old gags over and over .. but because the NEW jokes aren't funny.

In fact the show has gotten CORNY.

I own the first 5 seasons on DVD ... and even though I still very much enjoy the 5th season episodes.. it already shows signs of why the Simpsons are completely unwatchable now ..

In the 4th or 5th season episode "Marge On A Lamb", their next door neighbour, Ruth, comes over and asks Marge if she can borrow a power sander. Marge asks Homer if he owns one to wich he responds "No" and then there's a cut scene of homer's feet resting on a power sander currently sanding up the carpet.

It's lame jokes like similar to that that the new episodes seem to be all about. Just dumb slapstick comedy.. rather than smart political and social satire that the earlier episodes were all about.

The movie begins with the same theme song sequence as the show, the family ends up in the living room staring at the TV, but the TV is missing. A road trip begins as the Simpsons search for their missing TV. Their search takes them across deserts, to the Hoover Dam, in the trunks of cars, and ends up in Washington DC, all while being chased by cops and robbers. By the end of the trip, they finally find their TV and they go home. /err wait

Most everyone gripes now about how The Simpsons has fallen off in quality. If you are one of these people, what season do you think the show jumped the shark?

We already know where the Simpsons live, KY. It's the only Springfield with a Shelbyville as the neighboring county. Everyone thinks it's supposed to be Anywhere, USA, but writers don't just pull insperiation out of thin air. And if you think about sterotypes.."the further north you go the fatter people are" vs. "the further south you go the stupider people are" KY is about smack dab in the center, and homer is a little of both.

ultimabaka (864222) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772413)

I don't know if I'm the only person out there who believes the Simpsons, as a series, has been getting much funnier over the last few seasons (especially when compared to how unfunny it was for a while in the late 90's), but I wouldn't be too surprised if Groening and the gang decided to call it quits after the movie is released.

Granted, that sounds hopefully idealistic of me, considering what kinda cash cow the Simpsons has become, but the act of leaving on a high note doesn't occur much often anymore, and I would like to see it happen here for once.

Length (5, Insightful)

rokzy (687636) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772436)

hopefully this will solve the problem of decreasing quality of episodes.

in the commentary for season 5 they talk about how an episode of the recent series is 2 minutes shorter (more adverts) than a season 5 episode. this forces them to remove an entire mini-story, which are often the source of many of the funniest moments.

though a movie format causes its own set of problems. I'd prefer they just went back to making longer episodes, but at this point I don't think a movie could makes things much worse so here's hoping for a return to form.

I agree because the best ones are about nothing in particular, like "Whacking Day" and when Homer started an internet company (and Bill Gates "buys" him out).

The best seasons were 4, 5 and 6.

We always wanted the show to end first but it just keeps going.

My thoughts exactly.

I'll probably wait to watch it on DVD, while enjoying freshly picked Tomacco.

Let's just hope its a WOOOHOOO and not an *annoyed grunt* .

how 'bout a live action movie instead? (1)

zixor (869704) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772621)

What would be really cool would be a live-action Simpons movie ... I can see it now .... Starring John Goodman as Homer Simpson ... Danny DeVito as Bart Simpson ... and Jennifer Aniston as the woman he loves ..

I wonder if they will show super violent Itchy and Scratchy cartoons. Hopefully they will age the characters where Bart is a no job stoner who lives in the basement, Lisa gets married to a computer nerd and Maggie is a high school slut.

excellent. (1)

... lemme tell you I smell trouble ahead... Yup, deep trouble. Frankly, I would be really surprised if it didn't ruin the whole Simpsons experience.

I feel the Simpsons is getting repetitive and old and I don't really think a movie is going to save it... The Simpsons is ending. Hopefully.

This could revitalize the show. (5, Interesting)

CyricZ (887944) | more than 9 years ago | (#12772759)

This movie has the potential to revitalize the show. Remember, the quality of South Park had decreased somewhat until the release of South Park: The Movie. The movie in turn gave impetus to the TV show. Strangely enough, some have even said that the post-movie seasons of South Park are far more intellectual than the pre-movie seasons. Now, that's a matter of personal taste, but I think that this movie could do the exact same for The Simpsons television show.
