seasons 3-8 are considered the golden age by most i think. seasons 1 and 2 dont really resemble later seasons at all, its a much more grounded show and less overtly comedic (not to mention slow-paced), but i think they're charming enough that i kinda appreciate them for what they are.

season 9 has a few stinkers and that definitely bogs it down but the majority of the season is actually pretty solid and its what i personally would consider the last 'classic' season

there's some really solid episodes in 10 too, i've seen some argue that the "good" simpsons lasts until 12 and there's some good stuff there but it's not nearly as sharp at that point and very noticeable in comparison

yeah there are still some good episodes after that point but they're comparatively fewer and farther-between and if you just evaluate the seasons as a whole then that is a huge factor

I haven't watched enough Simpsons to have an opinion about it.

I've only really seen like. . .the movie. And played the video game The Simpsons: Road Rage.

i hardcore binged on the simpsons in 2017. i watched everything up to halfway through season 11, and a couple dozen random episodes from after that point (just anything that looked interesting). also played the simpsons arcade game and hit & run which were both excellent

I remember liking it when I was a kid but I think that was more "it's a cartoon" than "it's good." Not to say it had no funny scenes or even episodes, but I can't consider it a good show. I just don't like the characters. I like South Park's cast, Futurama's, and Family Guy's (kinda)...but Simpsons? Marge and Maggy are effectively useless so it's up to Homer (mild Peter) and Yellow Dennis the Menace to be the show.

I haven't watched much Simpsons. I always feel like I should go back and watch the good stuff.

The Simpsons generates so much money from merchandise that there's not really much incentive to kill it.
It doesn't seem like there's nearly enough merchandise to justify that anymore. I remember people wearing Simpsons tshirts, carrying around the plush toys, and reading the books all the time when I was a kid. I legitimately haven't seen so much as a Simpsons keychain even in a store in the past decade.

I don't even think Butterfinger uses Simpsons for marketing anymore, I think there was a mobile game several years ago...

Oh right duh I've played that four-player Simpsons arcade game, the beat-'em-up. You're talking about that one, right? That's always fun to play.

I'm pretty sure they don't! I think they haven't used the Simpsons in at least a decade.

I was going to say that they even stopped releasing the seasons on home video, but they actually started that back up in 2017. I guess it makes money that way? Who buys TV shows on disc these days though lol

Well, collectors, I suppose. There's a special DBZ collection coming out, but I don't know which music and acting it uses. It should have options for every one of them, but it will probably just be Kai acting and music. It's going to be expensive for sure regardless, it's a limited run packed with trinkets.
