The Simpsons

It is, without a doubt in my mind, the greatest TV show ever created. It has well-rounded characters, plenty of honest emotion and heart, and it's idealogical without being preachy or biased. Oh, and it's also the funniest goddamned thing ever. Yes, it's not as good as it used to be, obviously, but what do you expect from a show that's in its 19th season? The best writers aren't going to stick around that long. If you can show me a show that's better than seasons 3-9 of the Simpsons, you're a liar (okay, I'll let you argue Futurama, but that's it). So, discuss your favorite episodes, quotes, characters, or whatever. My favorite episodes: Lisa the Vegetarian (the all-around best episode, IMO) and You Only Move Twice (the funniest). My favorite character is Lisa. And my two favorite quotes are these:

Homer: "Hank, do you have any sugar?"
Hank Scorpio: "Sugar...sugar..." *reaches into his pockets, pulls out handfuls of sugar* "Here ya go. Sorry it's not in packages."

Marge: "Have you noticed a change in Bart lately?"
Homer: "New glasses?"
Marge: "No, I think something might be troubling him."
Homer: "Probably misses his old glasses."
Marge: "I want to become more involved in his activities, but then I'd be afraid of smothering him."
Homer: "Yeah, then we'd get the chair."
Marge: "That's not what I meant!"
Homer: "It was, Marge, admit it."

If you think me saying it's the best show ever is controversial, you should see what happens when I tell people it's also the most pro-Christian show on TV.

EDIT: Actually, I should rephrase that. It's the most pro-religion show on TV.

I never really watched the Simpsons when they first ran. I was more of a Beavis & Butthead guy in the 90's. But I actually went out and bought Season 4 of the Simpsons a few months back just to try and catch what I might have missed. I'm afraid I didn't miss jack shit. That PALED in comparison to the golden years of Family Guy, and the so-called "legendary" "Last Exit To Springfield" episode was stupid and boring. Lisa on an acoustic guitar and singing every 5 fucking minutes is not funny.


But I will admit this is:

Barney: (under the beer tap faucet guzzling away) UH OH! MY HEART JUST STOPPED!

[awkward pause]

Barney: (convulses) Oh There it goes! (continues drinking)



By the way, while I realize that Family Guy's magic has come and gone, where the hell is this backlash coming from? I didn't hear anybody saying it sucked back in 2000.
