The worst Simpsons open ever

    Tonight ... it wasn't the theme song instead Kesha's awful Tick Tock song with the characters singing along.

    Just pathetic.

    Show ran out of ideas about 15 years ago.

    And yet, somehow, they've managed to stay on the air for all 15 years, get decent ratings, and produce roughly 300 more episodes since then. Even inspired a South Park episode where every ridiculous idea for a plot was met with a cry of, "Simpsons did it!"
    Nope. No original ideas at all.

    South Park ran out of ideas about six years ago.
  5. I think the last time I watched a new episode of The Simpsons was sometime in about 2002 or 2003, whenever they had some milestone episode. Was it 500 or something? 1,000? Either way, it was bad that season and I cannot even imagine what it has devolved to at this point.

    I'm sorry, but that open was hilarious.

    They used it last year too.

    I'm guessing it was the same episode, since this was a rerun.

    It was a rerun. My daughter was seeing it for the first time and was amazed they would use that for the Simpsons. It just doesn't seem to fit the Simpsons.

    They haven't reached 500 episodes yet and won't reach it until year 23.

    21 years, 464 episodes.

    Remember, there are only about 22 episodes per year.

    It was even more so the second time around.
  12. Maybe it was episode 300 then. Whatever it was, it was some big milestone. I watch about an hour of television a week and have been like that since I was a kid, so I had never in my life considered the math behind the number of Simpsons episodes. All I know is it had the Red Hot Chili Peppers and it was way bad.
