The SimpsonsOriginally created by cartoonist Matt Groening, "Our Favorite Family," has graced the small screen in one form or another for over 20 years. The Simpson family first appeared on television as the subjects of interstitial "shorts" on The Tracey Ullman Show in April of 1987. The Simpsons remained a staple on The Tracey Ullman Show for three seasons until they premiered in their own half-hour series, on December 17, 1989. With the help of Jim Brooks and Sam Simon, Matt Groening's cartoon family turned into an instant success.

    Set in Springfield, the average American town, the show focuses on the antics and everyday adventures of the Simpson family; Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, as well as a virtual cast of thousands. Since the beginning, the series has been a pop culture icon, attracting hundreds of celebrities to guest star. The show has also made name for itself in its fearless satirical take on politics, media and American life in general.

    Currently in its 21st season, The Simpsons has piled up over 440 episodes, over 20 Emmy Awards, a handful of music albums, countless endorsements and merchandise, and even made the jump to the silver screen in the summer of 2007 with The Simpsons Movie. And according to Matt Groening, "There is no end in sight."

The intelligentBy the time The Simpsons eleventh season was completed it became clear the writers were beginning to run short of ideas. The intelligent social commentary and satire of pop culture was gradually being replaced by episodes in which the family found themselves involved in increasingly bizarre antics.

    Episodes such as E-I-E-I (Annoyed Grunt) and Saddlesore Galactica certainly had their funny moments but lacked that special something the show previously delivered in every single episode. There are still signs of what it is capable of in Beyond Blunderdome, Behind the Laughter and Treehouse of Horrors X (possibly my favourite of all the Halloween specials) but there very few episodes that could be considered amongst the best The Simpsons has offered.

It contains some pure bad episodes- Take my Wife Sleaze, Saddlescore Galactica, Missionary Impossible and Kill the Alligator and Run are atrocious in my opinion. Season 11 confirmed any suspicions the fans had about the decline of quality and bad jokes from season 10. I dont really have a favourite episodes from this season. Many of them have great potential at first - like The Mansion Family, Guess who's Coming to Criticize Dinner, Eight MIsbehaving, Little Big Mom- but end up being very dissapointing. Little Big Mom features one of my favourite Homer quotes : ''AHH! Stupid sexy Flanders!!'' Collapse

THIS is the moment the Simpsons fell down a slope and straight off of a freaking cliff. It has horrid and disjointed plots, Homer doing things that make no sense and are just downright mean, and one of the worst episodes ever, Beyond Blunderdome. Ugh. How any of this garbage got into the writing room just baffles me. Mel Gibson comes to Springfield, of all places? Springfield!? There's not only that, but this episode's plot and others are so loosely connected you'd think you were watching Family Guy. All of this sh!t is so godawful that watching it again would probably make me want to hammer a nail into my teeth, just to get my mind off of its mind-numbingly stupid and illogical plots. Seriously, Mike Scully needs to get bent. Expand
