    I thought this was a really good episode.
    Also, the ice castle that was seen in spoiler pictures from this event was in the opening sequence.

    I hope this means the re-release of the grinch. Also hope for the garland wreaths for the cooling towers. I like them better than the candy stripe towers.

    the simpsons has bascially become a 23 minute series of references to pop culture with no discernable connection to anything resembling a story line.

    the show has pretty much lived out its life.

    the scripts must read: "and then this happens . . . . and then this....and then this."

    Nothing they do is good, and most old Simpsons fans tend to agree. I don't watch regularly anymore and haven't for more than decade. The episodes I have seen (the lego one, and a couple of game tie-in episodes were so cringeworthy they were almost unwatchable.)

    My two cents

    I think that The Simpsons isn't as good as it used to be, but by no means is it terrible. It is still a lot of fun, and an outstanding show.

    Because something declines in quality a small amount doesn't mean it's worthless.

    We obviously disagree on "the small amount" part because I find the show totally unwatchable. but that's OK, to each their own.

    :lol: I read this in an old grandpa voice "kids today and their popping culture and hippity hop.."
    The new episodes aren't as good as the old but maybe some folks connect with those new episodes like we do with the old. In case you forgot they have to cater to a very broad audience and can't please everyone all the time and stay relevant. I'm sure it's no simple feat. I definitely would NOT agree nothing they do is good.
    Each to their own though.

    I think about it in number of laughs. I still laugh and enjoy the show, but there aren't as many per episode as there once was.

    I loved the episode last night! Very funny stuff and so many hidden things here and there. I look forward to watching it again.

    It was kind of a downer episode, really. Lots of sadness.

    I loved the episode! Moe was pitiful. Homer, too. Loved Apu's limit of 10 lottery tickets, d'oh, d'oh.... Maybe they'll give us some free scratch offs! Lol :wink:
