EXPLORING THE END OF THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE SIMPSONS

The Simpsons is currently into its 28th series and shows no sign of letting up, if you catch one of the frequent repeats on TV then perhaps you'll luck out and get a Golden Age episode (series 3 to 8), fuck up and catch a post-millenium episode or throw a real gutterball and watch the one Ricky Gervais starred in.

This video by Entertain The Elk explores how the Fox series declined so sharply, with current episodes featuring nonsensical plots, bizarre character behaviour and shit-tier celeb guest spots. In fact, the video makers place the blame on the episode The Principal and the Pauper, which they - along with some of the programme's makers - deride as being illogical and disrespectful to the show's fans, seeing as how it completely rewrites a principal character's back story.

Whether or not their theory holds water, it's hard to disagree that the current show is miles away from what it was, a real shame. Take a watch:
