I haven't been paying attention.
it had the new opening and everything. It was about curling. It was surprisingly funny.
I'm not clicking that link though because I know it will only depress me.
And yeah, it's pretty good. The last couple of seasons have been, on the whole, very funny (though there are still two or three duds in there). But Channel 4 don't show any episodes beyond season 16, which is definitely in the middle of the show's lull in quality, and far fewer people will watch the latest ones on Sky every week, so people don't seem to have realised it's got better again.
"#genericaccounr: Fucking youtube generation. You're the retards this show is pandering to nowadays.? Yeah, thanks a lot you mindless Fred-loving, Drake-listening-to, plastic-eating morons.

except if hollyoaks did it it would be better.
If the title sequence had used a tune by The National, it would have been great.
A good pop song would have sufficed.
This isn't Flight of the Conchords, this is the Simpsons. Can you imagine how cringeworthy it would be for it to do something like this for a song that 95% of watchers (probably more) have never heard of? It's possibly an even stupider idea.
Do something like that Kanye West song about getting knocked down, that's hilarious already.
"The Simpsons have always reflected in the pop culture of the time. Since the current music/entertainment scene is a load of shit now, they have shit to work with."
Supplementary: A symptom of the aging process is a propensity to view things you liked when you were younger as unimpeachable brilliance, whereas things that people like now are utter garbage.
P.S. I've been watching that gif for two minutes now.
What now, bitch?
Yes - for ME, against YOU.
I changed my mind: One good thing about pop culture.

The old writers could have made gold out of this. The problem is that the Simpsons isn't funny or clever at all any more. It doesn't matter what they do now, it's been awful for so long. Also, the animation is horrible, this doesn't work at all.
"to all the people complaining that they sold out...its a joke! They're obviously making fun of the song by the fact that they have all the characters doing literal interpretations of the ridiculous lyrics. (willy actually brushing his teeth with? jack daniels, the pay phones literally being blown up etc.) Its actually a bit of sophisticated satire."
and i like the new new simpsons episodes.
are some of the funniest new ones there's been for years
