It's way past its sell by date , beating a dead horse comes to mind .

All things should come to an end and the Simpsons really should of come to an end a good few years ago , maybe after the Simpsons movie was released.

Simpsons I think suffers from the fact that they've pretty much done everything. Their jokes were some of the most clever and well thought out social commentary, miles ahead of the just straight slapstick of family guy or south park. It's just now the average audience is about the short term instant laugh moments and the simpsons are trying to do just that, but not well. Futurama is probably the best successor in the clever writing department, being it's another Matt Groening creation but they should have axed Simpsons years ago.

As much as I love the Simpsons, I do believe they are losing their touch a little bit.
In the earlier episodes, Bart and Lisa were depicted as just being kids having fun, and now, all the kids in the show have iPhones, iPads, and other smartphones and electric devices. Aren't they supposed to be like 8-10 years old?
Plus, I feel that some of the episodes are trying a little too hard, but that's just me.

I love the Simpsons regardless, ever since I was really young, and I will still watch it whenever it comes on.

I haven't watch the Simpsons as much as I was a small child. It sometimes funny, but not too laughable since my childhood.

Nope

The show still has its moments, but I don't think its been that good for the last 5 years. In a perfect world Groening would have went out on a high and stopped after the movie.

I'd still watch it from time to time but I do feel a diffrence in jokes, I rember hearing the NC say that they're beating a horse with another dead horse.

Sout park's still alright, but ever since season 16 theres been a bit of a drop, and I also like the boondocks, goes places no other satire shows DARE go to and does it correctly.

I would say yes, although I grew up with the show so maybe I am bias.
I feel like on some level because it is ending, it's soul and everything that is good about it is moving on to Futurama.
This is all well and good as I am not much of a other series I could name but won't because I don't want to upset anyone, sort of gal.
To each their own though.
I find that Simpsons when it is really good now is more heartwarming than funny, which is fine to me. The world needs more of that .

I don't what it is that it has lost, but it's something. The past 4 years have been fairly poor and I've lost interest now. Maybe they've done everything.

I lost my interest in the Simpsons more than a decade ago. The only episodes I watch once in a while are the reruns of the 90's which I consider the best of all. I still wonder how many more seasons is going to last until?
