The best show ever made. the only people who think family guy is better are the ones who have never seen simpsons episodes from the golden years (season 4-8), which are way more clever and consistently funny than anything family guy has ever put out. just think how terrible family guy would be if it went on for 18 seasons.
after watching seasons 4-8 of the simpsons on dvd, i realized that i'm a fucking idiot for ever thinking family guy was the best show ever.

A highly outdated sitcom on the FOX network whose shelf life has long since passed.
The Simpsons may have been funny 17 years ago, now it's just a lame and tacky show.

All-time classic show that's beginning to show it's age. Used to be brilliant, but now it's only watchable to good.
The Simpsons was great until the writers started running out of ideas.

A great animated sitcom premiering in late 1989 as a spin off from The Tracy Ullman Show, it is still in production, shown on Network Ten, Australia twice or more a day and shown on FOX in the USA, a movie based on the series will be released in 2007. The show is about Homer Simpson and his family's misadventures in there fictional misfit city Springfield. The actors who voice multiple characters are brilliant, also Phil Hartman who voiced Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz sadly wrote out of the show due to Hartman's homicide.

It's an excellent show, but UPN has been playing the same Season 15 episodes for months, and they are still playing them! PLAY SOME DIFFERENT EPISODES! WE'RE ALL TIRED OF SEASON 15!
The Season 15 episodes of The Simpsons should not play on UPN for another year or two.

seasons 1-12 are the best thing to happen to tv in a long time. The new seasons have lost their edge and lack the wit and good satire from seasons 1-12. The show has lost alot of its sharpness and is dull and too mainstream. But i will stay with the show till the bitter end.
the show used to be gold but has lost its shine.

A show that many say is getting stale and old, and yes, I agree it is, but now that it has Family Guy to compete with again it will regain the lost spark that disappeared when Family Guy was cancelled. Many think that the Simpsons peaked at the cancellation of Family Guy (season 12) but so did Family Guy. It is what Family Guy copied so that it would get on TV for more than 5 minutes on Fox. A great pop culture icon and even the basis of some college classes.
From The Simpsons Episode "Homer in Space"

Reporter: Uh, question for the barbecue chef: Don't you think there is an inherent danger in sending underqualified civilians into outer space?

Homer: I'll field this one. The only danger is if they send us to that terrible Planet of the Apes. (Homer thinks for a minute then relizes something).

Homer: Wait a minute, Statue of Liberty--that was our planet! You maniacs! You blew it up! Damn you! Damn you all to hell!
