Does anyone actually watch the new Simpsons episodes each week?

I am one of the biggest Simpsons fans you'll ever meet. I have been watching the show since I was 5 and haven't stopped, even when the show was unbearably bad from about 2000 to 2003. I still watch the new episodes, but I just record them and watch them later. I still LOL on occasion, but damn, they have nothing on the classics...some of those classic episodes from season 4, 5, 6, 7...I can't stop laughing. (I'm going to buy season 8 on amazon right now...hallucinogenic chili peppers FTW )

I don't know...I probably never will stop, but sometimes it's tempting to stop the ritual and move on, especially when the episodes are mediocre each week, as they often are.

So, is there anyone else here that still tries to catch the new episodes each week?

i, too, started watching the simpsons since i was 5
...and it lasted till i was 17...they got too unbearably funny, but i'll still go into hysteria when i watch the old seasons on dvd.
now and then i'll watch the last 10-15 minutes of a new episode ..probably for pure nostalgia,
but i personally think they have really sucked for the last couple years, but well ..at least they were funny for a long time.

The last episode I saw from the new series was the one with the White Stripes.

I love watching the repeats when I do.

I stopped watching TV regularly (save for live sport like yesterday's Daytona 500 or NHL games) about two years ago when I went off to university.

Any shows worth watching I will download.

I've currently gone through 7 seasons of Star Trek: TNG, Star Trek: DS9, and a couple seasons of Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty.

The ability to watch a season all the way through on demand is a huge + for me. I tend to prefer shows with long story arcs as opposed to serialized dramas. I'll probably go back and watch all the Simpsons seasons this summer.

I will go up to season 9 (only becasue it has the U2 episode) but I will not purposely watch anything new because they suck...

It's a shame really but they should have quit while they were ahead. Remember when the rumor went around that the show was ending and the up-roar that caused? Who really wanted this to continue? Let it die already...

I still watch them every week.

And I catch the three reruns Fox shows here during the rest of the week. Saturday is a Simpsons day off.

I can't wait to see the movie.

You'd probably like the new Battlestar Galactica. I've been burning through DVDs too.

But yeah, I haven't watched a new Simpsons episode in a long time. I'm more excited for the new Futurama on Comedy Central anyways, that show never faltered.

I haven't been watching it regularly anymore, but I caught a rerun of a recent episode and a new one last night, and they were pretty funny.

I'll admit to wanting to go see the movie, too.

I usually watch it every week, I agree that they don't have the same pizzaz as classic Simpsons ep's.. but they're watchable.

Not for a few years, which is sad.

I haven't watched it regularly in a few years but I do watch a rerun every now and again.

I'm kinda excited to see what the movie holds

Just isn't funny anymore. Maybe they ran out of old movies to quote/paraody.

After season 9, everything went down hill. It almost seems like they are just trying to find the hip/new thing and put them on.

You can tell the writers have changed, because in the "good years", we'd have former Beatles, Stones, etc. Classic bands and/or actors. Now we get the latest American Idol.

I hope the movie doesn't suck as bad as the last few years.
