1 Honestly, no specific episode, it has just gone on too long. They should have called it quits after season 12 or 13. Does anyone still watch this show?I cannot believe it is profitable for FOX anymore -- Submitted By: (johnsmih) on December 3, 2017, 2:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Started to bone around season 10. After that every season went from hit or miss to just plain unfunny. Used to be my favorite show on TV but now it has become unwatchable. Havent seen an episode in years and dont feel like Im missing anything. It has become a superstar athlete that has been in the league far past its prime and wont retire. -- Submitted By: (HulkFanGuy) on March 3, 2016, 10:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I'll just come out and say it...the Carl Carlson episode was the most boring ever. With careful writing, they could have written a stereotype that would have been funny without being embarrassing to the minority community. Iceland...really? Now they beat the whole Sideshow Bob thing to death...we get it already, he hates Bart. I think bringing back Homer's brother as a regular would be a nice swan song for the next few years...the series finale could be him and Selma getting married. -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on September 28, 2015, 2:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Now that Harry Shearer is gone: PUT THIS DEAD HORSE TO REST ALREADY! This is a once great show that went on about 15 years too many. It has become a total parody of itself. Hasn't been funny in years. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on June 21, 2015, 11:05 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 For the love of God and Humanity, kill this show! 27 years is too long for a TV show to live, it's just unnatural. The writers ran out of good ideas about a dozen seasons ago and as a result, the episodes are painfully NOT FUNNY! It seems every week the whole cast breaks into song and that hideous troll Moe has his own episode at least twice a month. Homer and Marge are senior citizens, Bart and Lisa are middle aged and Maggie is pushing 30! Enough, already! Let it die! OK, I'd be up for a Halloween Treehouse of Horror ONCE a year, but that's it! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on May 20, 2015, 4:14 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The Simpsons was never the same after Marge vs. the Monorail. The color of their flesh even changed almost immediately from dark orange to neon yellow. They all looked like ghouls. I remember thinking is something wrong with the color button on my TV. The last one I saw was when Patty and Selma took Bart and Lisa to the carnival. It boned with Marge vs. the Monorail. It semi-boned with Do the Bartman, but I loved half of the selections on that record. It just semi-boned because I knew it would dated in the 2000s even in 1991. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 10:12 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Let's get real here. This show boned years ago, I'd say just over a decade ago. I didn't get to watch this show when it first came out. We were not high tech enough to get the new channel FOX out in the sticks. I started watching it maybe two years later. Thought it was the funniest, most clever show I had ever seen. It was packed full of clever sight gags, the characters were likeable, and the writing was so sharp. There was not an exact moment this show boned. It was a long, slow-burning bone. The type that took a couple of years until I realized it just doesn't do it for me any more. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 30, 2014, 11:08 pm - (12 votes) - Login to Vote

10 I think this show really boned when the movie was released. Too late, I think. It felt like one incredibly long episode that was combined with parts and no edits. I just didn't like that movie very much. Sure, the animation has gotten better and the series has gone through a lot of evolution. But what does it have to offer anymore? It's a show that pretty much has done everything there is to do, and it's just taking quick swift jabs at whatever it feels like doing. Just that and move on. And Homer has really been downplayed into what was once a character to being a "I'll exaggerate everything I do and do stupid things and comically get myself hurt or insulted just for the sake of saying "D'oh!" routine. That's what some of the other characters were doing too. "Hey you know me as this guy, so I'll just do my routine over and over." it just gets old. Whatever happened to those in-depth episodes where we actually had a story to follow, there were actual good jokes and the characters were memorable. Even ones that didn't have a lot of air time. It happens to shows that stay this long. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 22, 2013, 1:00 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
11 When I first watched the Simpsons, I was a liberal. They mocked both sides equally. When they bashed Republicans, I thought it was funny, but when they bashed Democrats? "How dare you!" I thought. Eventually, I stopped being a liberal during George W. Bush's term. I saw the older episodes again, and the bashing of both sides from a different perspective. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 21, 2013, 2:48 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I'm a Bible-believing person, and I don't like how the Simpsons has jumped on that "anti-God" tip, but that's more about the fact that they were not doing so much of this, before you had the "shock" jokes in animation, like South Park and Family Guy ...But I realize that if the creator is a liberal, democrat, atheist, or whatever, he has a right to express what he stands for (and against) through his cartoons, just as Hank Hill (or his daddy, Cotton) represented that right-winged, Southerner, who feel that only right-wingers are patriotic ..It's obvious that many of y'all are Obama-hating-Bush-supporting viewers, who, I'm sure, would have no issue if it were just Obama and liberals being bashed (and I don't support democrats, OR liberals - honestly, I don't care for ANY political affiliation, but I see the hypocrisy in a lot of your responses) -- Submitted By: (Lashid4u) on August 19, 2013, 4:10 am - (-4 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I see that there are A LOT of conservative-Repubs up in here..lol (and I'm a Christian, btw, who is not under any political affinity) ..and HOW could anyone NOT like the "Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie" episode? That episode goes perfectly with BONE THE FISH! LOL -- Submitted By: (Lashid4u) on August 19, 2013, 3:59 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 It's been along time since I actually watched The Simpsons. I'm not even sure exactly what point I quit, I just did. For Nostalgic/longevity purposes, it will be sad to see the series end. However, It's way past time. Unfortunately, as said in another post of mine, Fox will indeed become the Seth Macfarlane channel. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 18, 2013, 10:23 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 In reply to the person who posted 3 posts down from me, yes, The Simpsons have had a history of ripping on both political parties. The keyword here is HISTORY. Shots were taken at both sides until the early 00s then it became pretty much pure liberal propaganda. Some examples include the multiple Fox-News bashings (usually displayed on a helicopter), everyone being in favor of gay marriage in There's Something about Marrying, Michelle Obama portrayed as Superwoman, every kid wanting to impersonate Barack Obama for a school presentation in one episode, etc. As a libertarian, I identify with neither liberal vs conservative/republican vs democrat. Hating both parties and mindsets equally, I feel I'm able to view the show's politics (at least in regard to the left-right bashing, as I support neither). -- Submitted By: (xjk118) on August 18, 2013, 12:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 This was once a cutiing-edge, can't miss show! I loved it for about the first 10 years. By the 11th year, it had become total dreck! I cannot believe that this dead fish is still floating around the toliet bowl. Sombody please pull the flush handle quick, so we can remember this show how it was (and not the pathetic joke that it has become)! -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on February 12, 2013, 5:39 pm - (6 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Surprised that I didn't see anyone mention the episode where Skinner turned out to be a completely different person. That was terrible. They ripped on that later when they killed Fat Tony and had him replaced. Those were low moments on the show. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on January 1, 2013, 5:17 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
18 One of the things that strikes me odd while reading some of the comments and reasons on the boned when...list is that most of the people commenting have not really watched alot of episodes and just use sites like these as a soap box to spew their politics. If they really watched the show often enough they would know the show's history of lampooning both major politcal partys. Having gotten that out of the way i would point out mini-btf moments (not complete btf moments because I think the show is still great). I had mentioned guest stars appearing too often on the show which is bad, but the worst is when the guest stars get a completely different reaction from the main characters then they should. The first time I really noticed that was on a really good episode that had Micheal Jackson voicing a huge white man that claimed he was MJ. While the episode was a good one the thing that annoyed me some was that Bart thought MJ was awesome instead of mocking him(which is what the character would have really done). The most cringe worthy guest star moment for me came when they had N'Synch on. Both Nelson(the main bully on the show) and Bart were excited to see them. Nothing against N'Synch, but come on they were a boyband aimed at teen and pre-teen girls and not young boys (ok, Milhouse and Ralph would probably like them, but certainly not Bart and Nelson). -- Submitted By: () on January 1, 2013, 5:12 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Is this still on? I loved The Simpsons for the first 10 years or so, but it became incredibly stale after that! Talk about OVERKILL!!! Somebody please put this rotten fish out of it's misery ASAP. This would have been an all time classic show, had they known when to quit wile they were ahead. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on December 16, 2012, 12:45 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
20 The Simpsons remain my favorite show ever. However, there have been times when I have been disappointed with the show,but considering it has been on the small screen for over 20 years I can overlook a few off episodes ever now and then. I will agree that the show doesn't have the emotional impact that it had in early seasons and is more driven by comedic puns and oddball storylines today, but it still is a great show. It's not as popular as it once was and I don't expect it to keep going much longer, but I will keep enjoying it while it last and then still watch it in reruns and on dvd. If i were to list one major gripe I have with the show it is the guest star factor, which normally adds nothing good to the show. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 28, 2012, 5:57 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
