I was thinking there were going to be itty bitty differences. And they were rather large.
WORTH ERRY MILISECOND
Maybe now they can scrape together another 400+ episodes.
Even though main has changed the "Running to the couch" scene will always be different.
I still like Futurama better.
the till reads 243.26 and after maggie 486.52 (which is twice as much).
I agree with Hansbo, but I did say it prior..oh well.
also, the maggie sequence used to be longer, she used to get scanned and thrown in with all the other groceries, but apparently sackers used to go so fast 15-20 years ago that bags would frequently get confused, thats the sigh of relief from Marge when Maggie pops out of the bag, but of course they cut that.
The true simpson`s fan could name not only the difference in this opening, but the differences in the original and the shortened version that many are used to (when first going through the O you start with bart not zoomed out view of Springfield).
It`s like butter scraped over too much bread.
Anyway, there`s always Futurama, which got the axe before it got crappy, so go and enjoy that if you hate the Simpsons so much.
(Or do as I do and enjoy both!)
I thought it was pretty fun still. I lmao`d at the moleman in the manhole man...
I still find it funny, but it`s changed into a new show.
I thought I was critical, but sheesh! Some of you need to relax!
You`ve only had 10 posts! I`ve been here for over two years... *laughs* IAB FTW.
also, they changed what the register reads when Maggie is scanned "NRA4EVR". the biggest change that bugs me is the show is supposed to resolve around the simpsons but by introducing all those characters into the opening sequence you are taking away from the main characters...lame
The Simpsons justice :P
HD is here, you better get used to it soon.
Different doesn`t equal bad you know.
If you liked the Simpsons last year I fail to see how a different opening and some flashy graphics would make a huge difference. Ultimately isn`t it the content that you`re watching for? The writers, producers, etc haven`t changed...
Of course, you would know that already if you didn`t react with instant fear to something that was different or new.
Sheeple bug me.
If you don`t want to be confronted with people who take cartoons too far, you should go outside and play some sports instead of frequenting the comments section of a website virtually designed to cater to those of us who derive utility from superior social commentary.
well *somebody* takes cartoons to seriously.
Aw, I`m gonna miss the little `AAH!` before running away from the car!
I haven`t watched a new episode in ages anyway. So I don`t care.
But I liked how they added more characters and stuff.
Plus the animation makes me cry. It looks lazy while the old one has time put into it and you can tell.
R.I.P. The Simpsons being funny, 1989 - 2002.
Never felt that the opening sequence needed changing, but seeing a completely new, different one made me smile nonetheless.
Still, the older one was better.
Secondly if you want to get technical every simpsons intro is new since the ending changes for every episode.
Good stuff. I haven`t watched this show in ages, though... I thought it fell off big time about 10 years ago, but I liked the movie.
Has it gotten any better? Anybody?
I guess if it`s in honor of going HD, then okay.
It`s still the funniest show ever.
The running scared me when I was little.
Same length.....couch gag was what made it long.
I imagine that the change is to take advantage of HD (which the Simpsons have not been in)
oh, and gracegirl = fail.
But why? Obama homage? Nah
that was awesome!
