Around 2000 maybe 2001, I distinctly remember just not caring to watch anymore even if I had nothing else to do. Something just felt off.

good video... indeed, he just became a sociopathic caricature of himself. Horrible writers to blame.

Season 8 is when it got bad. I remember thinking this in real time as I watched on Sunday nights in 1997 — the episode when Bart takes care of some bird that he killed the mother of because of Nelson

yeah same w the Orb of Isis episode which sucked

it started to get too far fetched and gimmicky although there were still some good episodes occasionally after that for just a couple more seasons

about ten seasons in

something felt off to me even then

probably had to do with the rise of celebrity

pandering and the stories feeling less

real

It was shitty when the eps got too Homer-centric and had him doing outlandish shit.

Believe it or not, the Simpsons is good again this season.

Dive into the first few eps and see 4 yourself

late 90s, in college. Stopped watching almost all TV that I had been watching before at that point (DS9, X Files, etc)

when maud flanders died i went to school the next day and friends and i were all like "that was the worst episode ever," it was just like everyone knew it was over.

the early seasons had an emotional core to them, it's not like they couldn't handle something serious. they had bleeding gums die and it was a fine episode, also lisa's substitute, bart getting an F. grandpa simpson's girlfriend died, it was a so-so episode but it wasn't like "wow this sucks."

early seasons had james l brooks/sam simon jewish magic, then they coasted on that, then it fell apart. in retrospect there were so-so episodes as early as season 7. who shot mr burns was the peak objectively.
