Simpsons writers confirmed for salty as fuck.

    The Simpsons writers have always been salty, insufferable gays. The creation of Comic Book Guy clearly shows that their critics were able to get under their skin. And considering all the other parodies of nerdy critics that show up in the show, it's clear that criticism of the show got under their skin over and over and over and over and over.

    The Simpsons isn't really Children's Entertainment but a show for kids has the obligation to be good content for them that won't leave them messed up psychologically. Dead End is an example of a show that completely fails at this and hopefully no actual kids watch it. Being free stuff isn't good enough, if it's even free

    Considering that showrunners only have a job because of fans regularly tuning in to watch their shows I'd say they owe their fans entertainment.

    Half the characters in the Simpsons are just stand-ins for things the writers hate. Comig Book Guy for criticism, Mr. Burns for nuclear energy, Chief Wiggum for law enforcement, and of course Flanders became such a blatant stand-in for the writers' hatred of Christianity that it became a whole new term.

        You have to be an actual mongoloid not to tell that half the jokes in the Simpsons were just the writers "ironically" seething over contemporary liberal issues like nuclear energy or religion

    Viewers pay by watching advertising. They need enough viewers to watch in order to make advertisers stick around so they don't get cancelled. They owe it to viewers not the other way around.

    IIRC this segment was supposed to be a jab at the hardcore fans that browsed the alt.tv.simpsons newsgroup in the 90s.
    They were all basically proto-/co/tards.

        A collection of forums that were accessible through Usenet, it's like a really old version of Reddit.
        It's a bit hierarchical, so groups kind of contained other groups - so one called "alt.subculture" might have a sub-group called "alt.subculture.punk".

          What's wrong with being a zoomer? It's the job of the old ones to teach things to the young ones, it's always been like that since we're humans.

    I use to think this scene was based. but on further reflection it's trash. Cable isn't free and tv writers get paid handsomely. Bart's criticism only makes sense for online creators. This whole attitude to hate your fans and not be grateful for your position is so shitty. It's like these writers think they are rock stars and get away with this shitty attitude.

    The Japanese mindset is so refreshing they knew free time is rare and want to make something good that the fans love. Western creators are such cry babies sometimes.

      I honestly can't think of a western creator that takes criticism like a man

      Also, if you make something that people like and it's your and other people's livelihood, you have an obligation to not ruin it.

    Why are show runners so deluded they expect people to like and praise something they do simply for putting effort into making something.

      It's one of those trolling games where if you acknowledge your critics by getting mad at them, they win.

    Without viewers there'd be no ad sales and without ads there's no funding for the show. They don't owe me anything. They NEED me. If they don't make a show worth watching they'll lose their funding and rightly so.

    It's not rocket science.
