I still watch. I remember when it first came brother and I were allowed to stay up the half an hour past bedtime to watch it.

It isn't what is use to be, but it is still better then most of the crap on TV these days.

Well I guess this kind of seems logical. It's a great example of life imitating art.

Real Kwik-E-Marts? Woo-Hoo!

7-Eleven may convert some stores to coincide with 'Simpsons Movie'

Mar 23, 2007

It appears as though the world's largest convenience store will get Simpsonized, though 7-Eleven Inc. said the deal isn't done yet.

But at a company event yesterday in Richmond, officials showcased their planned promotional ef- forts with major upcoming films, including "The Simpsons Movie."

If all goes as planned, the convenience store chain plans to refit 11 stores across the U.S. -- Richmond is an unlikely choice -- to resemble the front of the Kwik-E-Mart, the convenience store that Homer and other characters frequent in the classic cartoon TV series.

Customers also will be able to buy products inspired by the nearly two-decades-old show, including KrustyO's cereal, Buzz Cola and iced Squishees (the cup says Squishee, but the contents will be Slurpee).

The chain also will use pictures of Simpsons characters to promote 7-Eleven's line of fresh foods, such as placing the face of Homer and his classic "Mmmm . . . sandwich" quip on sandwich wrappers.

Details of 7-Eleven's plans were showed to employees in a booth at a company event at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. It was unclear yesterday which 11 stores of the more than 4,700 nationwide would receive a cartoony facelift or sell inventory of the Simpsons-inspired products.

The movie hits theaters July 27

kind of sad. at it's peak, it was as good as anything ever got.

I stopped watching right around the bad period you point out, LM--2000-2003. It had become a trend in episodes to have a small plot for the first few minutes that led you into the real plot. However, around 2000-2001, they started having two or three plots before you got to the real plot. It got to be pretty annoying. Then there were a season or two where it seemed like the writers were definitely on drugs.....there were drug references for like a whole season straight.

I think one big reason why the Simpsons lasted for so long is that it reinvented itself. It started out Bart-centric for the first few seasons. Then it made the shift to Homer-centric, which kept the energy going & had more potential than a purely Bart-centric show anyway. However, I think they pretty much ran dry of good ideas a few years ago.

I've seen the teaser trailers and, honestly, they were all boring. I just now watched the full trailer and it gets an "eh." There were definitely some funny bits, but overall it all seems so predictable and done before. It's like watching Austin Powers 2 after seeing the original.
