The Simpsons

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

He told me he has seen this already, nerd.

In all fairness, it was I who added the nerd part. :shifty:
For half a second there I thought I wasn't a nerd … and then it all came crashing back to earth again.
Yesterday you thought you were a crud. Then you saw The Sex Pistols and became a king and decided to move into the future. Where you became a nerd.

No, because Skinner said steamed hams is an Albany expression.

Last night, feeling a mite masochistic and curious, I watched an episode of the Simpsons (season 31, I believe). I missed the first five minutes or so, but it involved the family going to Portland, OR, because Marge became a lesbian lumberjill. It was terrible. It was so … old. The humour, as it were, was rooted in pointing out things we should know about Portland and then suggest we should giggle. Look, indie movies and coffee shops and craft beer—ha ha ha. Alan Smithee-level awful.

Got Disney + the other day and starting from scratch with this (again). Itching to be on season 4 already though, the first few aren't bad I suppose but, especially with season 1, the characters are not (understandably) confident in their roles and the animation is obviously of its time. Some decent episodes in there though, Simpson and Delilah one in particular.

One thing that tends to get overlooked about the first season is the delicious nastiness. If the writing wasn't as bang-bang-bang clever as the golden era, the show had a snark in that first season that it abandoned.

That's what my son is doing. He's just about to start season 10. That's where it starts to go downhill, right? He probably won't notice since he's 10, but still.
Got a Rake? Sure!

He's past golden era, but season 10 is still fairly watchable. After that, you'll be able to pinpoint the second when his heart rips in half.

I always thought it was good until around season 16 then they got sloppier.

Such a nice aesthetic.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed
