Re: Simpsons Founder Dies

As sad as his passing is I never found The Simpsons in the least bit funny. Am I alone in that?

Re: Simpsons Founder Dies

For it to become the longest running sitcom I guess there had to be a lot of fans Smiley

Nope, it's never really meant to be funny, just a bit of "make you think" entertainment, but with competing with Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy, American Dad and latterly The Cleveland show, they've tried to be more slapstick and stupid, which to be honest doesn't work with the simpsons... Undecided
I still like watching it though... Smiley
