So, I have seen articles in the newspapers that lead me to indicate that the Simpsons will be drawing to an end. This is an event which has been a long time coming, but will still be of note because back in my formative years that was The Show for PDR. For more than a decade that was the show that taught me how to realize stupidity in the world around me and laugh at it. I own the DVDs of those first ten seasons or so and I never tire of rewatching them. Sure, I stopped relating to the show eventually, but with a decade-long run of amusing me, I can’t complain. So now that it is wrapping up… wait, what’s that? Oh, the article says there could still be two or three years? What is with this show? Stop it already.
For the record the first article I saw on the topic had a headline telling viewers now to “have a cow” so I am going to choose to believe that they have had that headline ready for about twenty years and were just waiting for the opportunity to use it.
I have also seen articles on the Internet telling me that a new season of Arrested Development is going to happen. That right there, is awesome times news.
Simpsons just got renewed for 2 more seasons. Though I don’t know how all the negotiations went and I wonder if all the characters will return.
For more than a decade that was the show that taught me how to realize stupidity in the world around me and laugh at it.
I haven’t seen it in more than a decade, but there’s no question that the show helped define our generation.
