    best apple news in years

    Unfortunately The Simpson’s hasn’t been funny for years. I cringe when they advertise that Concords unfunny appearance on the show.

    It’s sad, because some of the old Simpsons are hilarious.

    It happened a bit before this, but all of the HD episodes are unfunny. It’s like they’ve been written by the writers of Futurama. Futurama is such a shit unfunny show, I’m not really sure what people see in it.

    To me, Simpsons is the best and most consistent social satire on television. It happens to be in a light funny style. Matt Groening is obviously a brilliant creative mind.

    The other thing that knocks me out is that it stays fresh. Year after year, episode after episode, it has bite. I don’t always watch it, as see very little tv.

    But I need to know there are extraordinarily clever and gifted people around, to counterbalance the vast heaving swathes of twots.

    I am in awe of whoever makes this happen.

    Yes, good news.
