    Simpsons- should their reign be over?

    What do you think? Do you think the well has been drained dry or do you think the series is still going strong?

    I think the Simpson's has gone downhill the past few years. I would still say that over half of the new episodes per season are funnier than anything else on TV, though.

    Keep em going.

    Personally I liked the Family Guy better.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    It's coming back with new episodes in early 2005.

    The Simpsons is one of the few shoes on TV worth watching. 95% of everything else is pure shit.

    If GW has anything to say about it I will guarantee it won't be as outrageous as it was.

    ditto...

    some of the episodes are weak, but the Simpson's is definetly better than 60% of the crap on network TV these days...

    Even if they do go off the air, Simpsons will still never die, it's the best show ever realeased and will live on forever through re-runs and dvd sales. To my knowledge it's currently the most aired re-run series on tv, it can be seen about 3 times a day on different channels.

    I think it'll go for another 2 seasons atleast though. Season 15, although still no where as good as seasons 4, 5, 6 etc. was still the best season in the last few years and the show still gets very high ratings and produces A LOT of money.

    Plus, after they do decide to call it quits, there are plans to release atleast one movie on the big screen, which should be sweet.

    blood stream.

    simpsons has been too random and not as funny, it needs to end and has needed to for a while. Family Guy was MUCH funnier than simpsons ever was hands down, the funniets show ever. I can't wait for new episodes.

    Family Guy was definitely better, but I dont think I'll ever get sick of the Simpsons.
    But when you disarm them, you at once offend them by showing that you distrust them, either for cowardice or for want of loyalty, and either of these opinions breeds hatred against you.

    Family guy is good, yes

    but simpsons is like the grandfather of funny animated tv shows

    I used to watch it "religiously" like 3 years ago, those were the best

    havent really cared much for a while though

    Futurama deserves a small mention here too
    its funny
