During the initial broadcasts of Seasons 16-19, I found the quality of The Simpsons to be borderline unwatchable when compared to the first ten, and just OK compared to whatever else was on TV at the time. However, perhaps coincidentally, right around the release of the movie and the subsequent transition to HD mid-20th season, I felt the quality returned to slightly above average. Anyone else agree?

I think it got borderline unwatchable a few seasons earlier, but I agree about the quality getting better after the movie. I actually enjoy most of the new episodes.

I couldn't stand watching the show after the 10th season. I think I watched a new episode about 2 years ago and thought it was just OK, but then never ended up watching the rest of that new season, or any new episode after that one.
Personally, The Simpsons ended after the 10th season in my mind. I can't believe they're making new episodes of this still. How are the TV ratings for the newer seasons?

I think this season is the absolute worst season of them all. Not only that, but it contains the most degrading, insulting episode of the entire series, the one where Home does not think Abe is his father.

I agree with that, the seasons I cited were just the worst of the worst. Painful and awkward. Like seeing a good friend on life support. I generally like new episodes too.

I'm as big a Simpsons fan as you'll find. I never stopped watching and I never will, so I'm with you there.

I can feel you on that. The first 10 are as good as anything ever on television hands down. As far as ratings for today, I'm not sure without researching but they're obviously good enough for FOX to justify the cast's massive salaries.
