I was just watching the Simpsons and I realised something amazing - Barney and Nelson look very similar!

Its the style of the animation. But it doesnt matter anyway as its by far the worst cartoon on television.

No, not really. I'm a huge fan of South Park amongst others, but to put it simply, it's not funny. No matter how hard they try, it's not funny.

Teeth and lips are the same, that's about it though.

And i'm convinced that movie is never coming out.

I wonder what the movie is gonna be like?

please tell me there's not a movie! Probably be crap, like most of the Simpsons episodes anyway
But moving on, they do look very similar.
#14
I disagree with both. The Simpsons, although cheesy has its moments. Moments which I can find very funny. Secondly, I could point out things about you "damn" Yanks but I don't so lets leave out our pomous stereotype and yours to "Copy" everything and talk without nit picking. Yes they do look alike by the way.

It didn't use to be...the new Simpsons episodes are shit, but the old ones are better than Family Guy.

I think you mean its not funny anymore.

You can't really deny that the much older episodes were absolute comic genius.

Today, however...its just rubbish. The humour has completely been dumbed-down. I'm not a fan anymore.

No true. The worst cartoon on television was, in fact, Yu-Gi-Oh.

Simpsons > Family guy.

At least the jokes have something to do with the plot in the simpsons.

Clearly the Simpsons is set in two parallel dimensions and Nelson is Barney in the past. This will all be explained in the movie. Kang and Kodos will reveal their true purpose!

I cant see Nelson

But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Simpsons used to be pretty good, around season 10 though they seemed to run out of ideas and the episodes I see post season 10 now tend to be utterly dreadful, devoid of ideas and subtlety and just...not funny.

The Simpsons used to be good because it didn't obviously try to be funny...it was the sort of humour that shows like Futurama, Red Dwarf and stuff like Monthy Python was so good at being effortlessly funny. Great comedy shows tend to make you laugh yet you quite don't understand fully why it's funny, it just is. Futurama and the others mentioned are so good at that...the Simpsons used to be similar (albeit to a lesser extent) but now it's just totally lost it. It tries too hard to be funny and falls a long way short of pulling it off.

When I see a post season 10 episode coming on I just turn it off these days...not worth the effort.

Amen. I still like the new Family Guy episodes. I can't stand the ones on Teletoon everynight though.

Dude, no, everytime there's a "best 100 cartoons" show on the TV, The Simpsons is ALWAYS number 1!

The Simpsons is pretty overated really.

Don't get me wrong I thought it was great it in it's prime but even then it wasn't that great.

Futurama has always been funnier and better written on the whole

Family guy isnt worthy to kiss my ass.
I always thought that Nelson was Barneys son. They have that thing if you know what i mean

Futurama conquers all. but I agree with most of you, the Simpsons have lost their magic. lets hope its due to them putting all their good jokes in the upcoming movie,.. right? RIGHT?!

It's opinion really.

Not the worst no, it was a good show in its day. One of the most overated though.

Sure it's not as good as it used to, but where would we be without the simpsons? Noone would be funny and how would men create bonds?

Well...I'll give the Simpsons some credit...without that there probably wouldn't have been any Futurama...

Now that would have been really terrible.

And like I hinted in my earlier post, the simpsons was good in the beginning. Now it's just... ridicilous (sp?)
