When did you stop caring about The Simpsons? For years, they were a must-watch for me... irreverant, religiously and politically relevant and just plain funny.

Then, about two or three seasons ago, I just stopped watching. Cold turkey.

Still all about reruns, but I haven't watched a new episode in about 2 years.

Right! I can still watch one of the old ones.

Good point. Maybe the new ones just feel so much like the old ones recycled...

I haven't watched The Simpsons now for at least three or four years. I haven't watched it regularly for a bit longer. I hear conflicting reports--it's still great, it's not nearly as good, blah blah--but who knows. For some reason, it just doesn't grab me anymore. But I'm like you guys--I can still watch the older episodes. In fact, I have the first three seasons on DVD. And I still love to break out Christmas episodes in December and I love the Treehouse of Horror eps for Halloween. But somehow the show just doesn't seem as important these days, in terms of the new episodes.

Maybe one day I'll catch up with it on DVD.

I still watch occasionally. It used to be a weekly ritual to watch it with my kids. Everyone seems to have lost interest. Some of the new episodes are OK but it isn't what it used to be.

Right around the time when HBO began dominating Sunday nights, I think. I still live for the re-runs but now I've discovered Family Guy, which is hilarious in a far more evil way.

Oops. Sorry.

You can say that again!

Um, but please don't.
