Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

I think I must be slightly too young for the podcasts I listen to because every host of every podcast I listen to has this breathless enthusiasm for The Simpsons, but no one I knew growing up cared much about it beyond "that's the other show by the Futurama guy."

Maybe I just grew up with a bunch of squares (entirely possible, my childhood years were split between Mormon country and military bases) or maybe it's because I only saw the apparently lower-quality later seasons but it's a little baffling, like if everyone a few years older than you agreed that Yes, Dear was some kind of comedic touchstone.

Pretty much every season of the Simpsons to season 9/10 (depending on who you ask) is pure gold and it quickly begins a downward slide into complete sitcom mediocrity past that.

May I ask when you were born? I'm a '94 baby and everyone I knew as a kid would watch it regularly at the minimum with Futurama/Family Guy/South Park depending on how much their parents cared about swearing and violence.

I'm slightly older than you, but a contributing factor may be that I had no real way of watching television until the early 2000's.

Business is slow

I think Spongebob has taken its place as a cultural touchstone right down to the fact that it keeps getting new seasons that nobody on the internet watches and most people agree are pretty bad.

Anyway, I hope someone draws a picture of Elmo domming Nelson Muntz and sends it to Jordan Peterson

I was born in '90 and The Simpsons I grew up with is some of the funniest television I've seen in my life, still to this day. I'll sometimes come across references in the earlier seasons nowadays that I probably didn't understand as a kid and I'll think "Holy poo poo" because they were on fire for at least a straight decade there.

It was probably right around 9/11 that I noticed the show wasn't anywhere near as funny anymore, and it never recovered after that.

I mean it's had almost 30 seasons so they can't all be winners when you go on that long, but the first 10 (give or take a couple) are seriously all-time greats that still hold up.

not even worth red text

The Simpsons is one of those things like Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows where there was a time when they were genuinely important and subversive and hugely popular but they just kept going long past the point where anyone cared and aside from the odd annual slow news day puff piece about what pop culture figure they totally eviscerated that year they may as well have been put down a generation ago. That said its ratings peaked in its second season and it spent most of its golden years still several dozen spots down on the Nielsen ratings of the time, it was never on the same level of something like Cheers or Seinfeld in terms of actual popularity even if the fans it did have were fairly devoted. The guys who run Talking Simpsons did an episode of their old show about the history of the simpsons that deals a lot with why people at the time hold the show in such high esteem and why it was so important in more or less inventing the modern television animation production pipeline. http://www.lasertimepodcast.com/201...rld-laser-time/

I didnít start watching golden age Simpsons until college a few years ago and I was stunned by how it completely lived up to the hype. The best episodes are written like clockwork, with gags every few seconds, and even a lot of the B-tier episodes in that era are some of the funniest TV Iíve ever seen.

I was (unfortunately) recently gifted a digital copy of 12 Rules and searched for that Nelson passage. Collision doesn't do justice as to how out of nowhere that pops up. One minute Peterson is talking about how women shouldn't parent their husbands and in the next paragraph it immediately goes into "It is for this reason that Nelson Muntz is necessary..." and the paragraph after that shifts gears again into how "feminization" of men is responsible for the rise of "fascist entertainment" like Fight Club and Iron Man, the election of Trump and the rise of the alt-right. It's like each paragraph was taken from a different blog post.

I relistened to the 12 Rules For Life episode, and I am still laughing at Peterson's hatred for Elmo, which makes him come of as an eleven year old edgelord at Newgrounds ca 2002.
