    What is the best animated show of the 2000s?

    ALSO: I mispronounce Matt’s name twice in the video because apparently hearing something 8 million times isn’t enough for me lol

      I like season 9-16 and a few later episodes, but I don’t think they’ll ever top 3-8. Season 7 is always gonna be the best.

            Homer sitting on the hood of his car, looking up at the night sky while reflecting the time spent with his long lost mother. That, to me, showed what Homer was. Yes, he was a buffoon, but he was also a character capable of so much more. A character with surprising depth and complexity that the modern incarnation of the show has woefully forgotten.

              Love this.
              Hate the changes they made.
              Especially animation wise.

                  It’s a common phenomenon in series, especially series with many writers, that characters loose depth and becomes more and more of a caricature of themselves.

                    Why pronounce 'imbecile' incorrectly at the start? Anyone else noticed how many words are deliberately mispronounced to an absolutely ridiculous degree these past few years? Dunno what the agenda is, but bet your life there is something diabolical at work, as per

                              Homer’s character (even down to his name), is about the humiliation of the father/masculine, and the deconstructing the nuclear family.
                              It wasn’t Homer’s Trend into “Unrealistic Stupidity” which ruined the Simpsons - rather, it was a combination of things:
                              1) Running out of new ideas
                              2) Society got tired of watching such intense humiliation of someone who you yourself claimed represents the “American Father Figure”.

                                    This is why Simpsons has disappeared up it's own arse, yet south park has gone from strength to strength

                                      Homer lived long enough to become something worse then a villain, he became a blank meaningless slate. Truly a fate worse then death.

                                        You guys are not getting it. The change in Homer is not an accident, but by design - to dumb out the populace. No consequence, emotionally in adept and ever more stupid.

                                            Granted, a lot of the counter examples you showed were from halloween episodes, where even from the first halloween special had homer behaving like a moron.

                                                Liberals ruined the Simpsons... now they are REDOING APU... because these shiny vaginas think it’s racist for Hank Azara to play Apu.
                                                I stopped watching the simpsons all together... today’s “woke” assholes absolutely ruined it.

                                                  I think this is more of a case study of nostalgia bias than actually ruining his character in the show.

He also showed frequent flashes of selfishness and meanness like his bout Dean Peterson and practically every interaction with Flanders, his coworkers, or authority figures. As far as consequences, that was just early 90s censorship; no one would have gotten away with tranquilizing their wife in the early '90s (maybe Al Bundy). He also displayed various levels of depth and intelligence, competence, and caring in episodes past Season 10, though those instances are few and far between. The amount of jokes aimed at his stupidity and varying degrees of ineptness only increased because he became the most popular character. The writing and character development began to suffer in general the more they tried to keep up with trends, and the more competition they started facing from other animated shows (South Park, King of the Hill, etc). The same thing happened with Marge, Bart, and Lisa. Marge became extremely close-minded and erratic, Bart's popularity waned and he became criminally mischievous with less of a conscience, and Lisa became annoyingly self-righteous: "Who wants to complain with me..." Just some thoughts.

                                                                                      • VILL4IN

                                                                                        people fail to realize that simpsons had to adapt with the times to remain relevant. If they didn't they may have been canceled. Imagine the 'first' homer being there for the majority of the seasons, people would get tired of it and change the channel because at the end of the day they would of liked to escape reality. Think a little deeper.... though I admit the modern simpsons is pretty bad by all standards.
