I know this is old news but The Simpsons has a bucket load of episodes. (A bucket load is equal to roughly 500 episodes) Now I used to be one of those people who said they’d seen ever episode but by now I don’t think I’ve seen half! On the other had I just watched episode 256 of Naruto Shippuden and before that there were another 220 episodes before it. Why is that?
Why I stopped watching The Simpsons
1. They wanted to stop. Remember when Futurama showed up?! The idea was that Futurama was eventually going to replace The Simpsons and it made perfect sense. The creators were getting a little tired, but more importantly Futurama was designed to be a longer lasting version of The Simpsons. Futurama can have an infinite number of possibilities, just travel to a new planet, create a new futuristic device. The Simpsons ran out of rational story lines years ago.
2. Re-writing history. The Simpsons don’t age but they’ve been on television for over two decades. This creates problems, when did Marge and Homer get married. Recently the writers rewrote history to be in-keeping with modern times. That shit is whack.
