Anyway, nothing annoys me more when a movie has a good trailer and I go and see the movie and the trailer WAS the movie, the only good bit in the movie. The Simpsons are probably leaving their best bits for those who pay to see the movie.
Differing senses of humor have nothing to do with short-sightedness. Nice try, though.
"You are my alter-ego."
You`re worse off than I thought.
Suicism, ladies and gentlemen. Certifiably insane. Keep going, but you can do so without me. I`m outta this nuthouse.
First off, my screename is `Overmann`. I write your screename properly and would appreciate at least that courtesy in return. Second, I am not arguing about adult cartoon sitcoms, you are. Though you may like to think otherwise, you`re arguing with yourself because I haven`t even mentioned South Park in this thread until just now. But carry on if you must.
"Because we have had so much fun together in the past. I miss the good times."
That`s a non-answer to my question. Being facetious adds nothing to your defense, namely your statement that you were not flattering yourself. Again, why would you think I only respond to you, if you weren`t flattering yourself? Only other explanation is you`re either delusional or badly short-sighted.
Also, because I cower in the face of your discussion board lordship!
Actually, I was just trying to brainstorm possible reasons why you might percieve the evolution of the series in such a way, and that analogy came to mind. I hope I didn`t leave you feeling TOO violated by the end of the day!
Actually, I don`t think you need any reason at all to flatter yourself. As far as me "complimenting" myself, I was remarking on your initial assumption, which seemed to me a lot like flattery. Why? Because it`s absurd to think I only post in response to posts by specific authors, or you specifically. Now why would you think that, Suicism?
...Why do you feel it necessary to use an analogy to explain my point when I blatantly stated it? Is that your round-about way of agreeing with me?
Whoa, don`t flatter yourself, bud. I responded to that post because it struck a chord. The author is irrelevant.
I consider "older" episodes to be of the era you mentioned: mid to late 90s, which was the peak of the series, in my opinion. Right now the episodes` plots are too transparent and threadbare for the intermittent jokes to be appreciated. Dare I say they`ve run out of material?
"Anyway, maybe I`m just tired of hearing everybody`s hypercriticism of things I still love and can appreciate."
More people are responding positively than negatively. Even so, I`d wager a fair number of those who don`t look forward to the movie still respect the series for what it was, at its peak.
Well, it`s actually called 3d... but it`s outputted as vectors and has very little texturing. I found out how to reproduce it recently and it`s neat! (if anyone cared...)
MissCutieRoo: A trailer IS a commercial. A commercial for a movie.
I watched a newer episode of The Simpsons recently and was dismayed at how much the show picked fun at itself (in actual character dialogue) for running as long. What was the point of that?
Just because I don`t like the newer episodes and the direction the series has gone doesn`t mean I can`t appreciate the series in its entirity.
Just to let you know, they already are making another series of Futurama, they`re just waiting for Cartoon Network`s deal with the show to end, then they will make it on (I think) Comedy Central. They will be using all of the same voice actors. I think it will air in 2008.
i hope im wrong.
ps: if anyone knows what its called (the 3d world thing) you tell them. im off to bed
BigBonny, what do you mean, futurama 3d stuff? futurama isnt in 3d!
I like the fact they didn`t show much, just means more hilarity to come.
Also it goes on about being 2D then uses Futurama`s 3D stuff."
And for gods sake if you don`t like The Simpsons don`t watch the f*cking trailer.
Die Simpsons. Mat Groening is indeed one greedy drat.
but I`d go see it anyway haha
oh and, I think after, well how many? 19-20 seasons... yeah... its possible to run out of idea...
and with the "OMG REPOST!!!11!!!!1one" I see here everyday... Yeah you cannot use the old same ideas cause there always a fanboy somewhere who will scream in despair that "he saw that already"
I agree, simpson are old, maybe they should fade away... but you know, if they KEPT it because they still have good audiences rates... probably better than the cancelled show ^^;
this film is not yet rated...
Besides, who didn`t love Futurama`s 3d art?
Also it goes on about being 2D then uses Futurama`s 3D stuff.
