The Simpsons Movie

Well, the Simpsons Movie is coming out this Friday and you know what? I don’t give a shit.

Not one little nugget.

This movie should have come out ten to fifteen years ago. Why the hell would I want to see it now that ‘The Simpsons’ has consistently sucked the bag for years now and nobody seems willing to accept it. And if the movie IS funny, then why the hell hasn’t that same effort been put into the TV show the last several years? If the writers are out of fresh ideas for the Simpsons universe then I have a suggestion: CANCEL THE FUCKING SHOW.

Seriously, how many memorable moments can you think of from the Simpsons from the past five seasons or so? Does even ONE come to mind? Face it, this show has become the SNL of animation and it’s high time Simpsons fans stopped being apologists and face the truth.

I’m not going to see the Simpsons movie, will not rent it on DVD and will probably not even bother catching it on free TV because, and I’m completely serious here, I don’t give a damn about the Simpsons anymore. They haven’t given me a REASON to give a damn anymore.

Have they given you a reason?

Sincerely,

Megane 6.7

I so agree. Although you know the only reason they did the movie now is because the unbelievable staleness of the series is finally affecting how much money the show is generating, so they are trying to bump up merchendise sales with movie tie-ins and such.

Bleh, my school has had a ripped version of the movie on the data drive for weeks that I could just stick on my flash drive and see for free, but I really do not care enough to. I do not think I have even watched the show for the last five years or so.
