To “Simpsons” fans, this is the universal cry of the comedic genius Homer Simpson. The white-shirted, blue-jeaned master of gut-busting, stomach hurting, hilariousness. But others, others who aren’t familiar with this show (and some who are) think Homer Simpson is just a repetitive, loud, drunk hippo. This has long been one of the quiet arguments in the “spectacular” business of television. Here is what Middle Schoolers have to say about “The Simpsons”:
“It’s a cool show”
“It was good until season 15”
“I liked the early ones better”
“It’s old but it’s still kinda funny”
Alright!! All of the witnesses have presented their sides of the story. Now let’s get on with this. (gavel smash) BANG BANG!!
THE SIDE THAT THINKS THE SIMPSONS IS BECOMING REPETITIVE.
“It’s not that “The Simpsons” has gotten bad, but it has overstayed its welcome to the point where its ideas have become either too predictable or too boring.”
“‘The Simpsons’ has been dead for the last 16 years.”
These are comments some fellow writers decided to share. You can see their point. If a show goes on for 30ish seasons, it can get pretty dry. However, it could still be somewhat entertaining…
THE SIDE THAT THINKS THE SIMPSONS ISN’T BECOMING REPETITIVE.
“The Simpsons” has long been one of America’s classic TV shows. It has been going on for 30-odd seasons and is still cranking out somewhat original ideas. Many people take pleasure in sitting down and watching “The Simpsons.” But, many still think it has been overplayed and has run out of ideas. This has now become quite the argument in the offices of the GFS middle school Corner. But what is beautiful about this, is that we will never get a straight answer. That is the glory of television and entertainment.
