Well, to each his own. Personally, I find emotional investement increases the enjoyment. Besides, I do think it's totally possible to root for a team and still remain impartial about what's happening in the field and admitting to yourself that your team may have objectively deserved a loss. It's true most people don't do that, but I'd like to think some people are capable of it and that I'm one of them.

That's the kind of fans they currently have, I don't give a fuck about pairings I want creative comedy and witty satire. It's slowly become a kids show.

Yoshi wrote:I think everyone's problem is that the style of The Simpsons is not consistent. It's changed over the course of the years and people hate change.
Yoshi wrote:But I have actually changed my opinion, to one that's actually even less popular it seems. I actually prefer the early-middle seasons best. Not the first few, not that all are truly equal, but the seasons people generally declare as the start of decline.
Yoshi wrote:I would take most new episodes over most old episodes. Maybe it's because I've seen them so much, but I just enjoy the newer ones more. And the humour isn't "bad", it's just evolved to target a different audience. The world has changed and while The Simpsons were considered "edgy" when they first came out once Family Guy and the like hit the scene? Not very edgy at all. Almost conservative by comparison.

Yoshi wrote:the humour and content of the show have changed to adapt whatever fan-base is biggest.
Yoshi wrote:And honestly, if they fired all their current writers and hired all the ones who made "classic" episodes and brought it back to the golden times, do you really think anyone who has written off the show will come back?
Yoshi wrote: The long answer is that I think the sort of humour that is best is characterised by John Schwartzwelder. The kidney episode where they're in the "wild west" town and there's a fake firefight and one cowboy starts randomly digging a hole? That stuff is the best for me.
