    Classic Simpsons was extremely dense with witty jokes. Does it have to be edgy like Rick and Morty to be funny or something?

    People are so incapable of thinking without attributing everything to a side or a name to call their opponent that they took what was an observation of generational differences and turned it into an identity war by assigning completely arbitrary traits, ideas and objects they disagree with to those who's identity they don't share, assuming it's the fact that they are "not me" that unites them, as opposed to their actual shared identity which is completely separate from their perceived antagonization of you

    Something that was revolutionary 35 years ago looks relatively mundane today. Stop the presses.

      Mind you, there are people who don't get David Letterman, Seinfeld, or even Hamlet or the works of Mozart just because they only know the works after they've had time to influence so much more that they seem kind of oldhat when if taken with their contemporaries, you realize how revolutionary it truly was.

    If you want to see if something was revolutionary or not you need to first put it into context and compare it with its peers at the time
    Then look to see how much influence it had going forward

      In all fairness, if you grew up listening to dozens of bands that sound like the Velvet Underground then going back to the source maybe a tad underwhelming. When you see the view from standing on the shoulders of people standing on the shoulders of giants, the view by default is going to be lesser when going straight to the giant.

    I’ve been trying to watch that Simpsons clip. Any tips for getting past the part where they say Dr. Zaius 10 times in a row?

      Don't keep rewinding the video? It's not hard to find the whole segment on YouTube.

    I feel that I've seen like 5 posts that were like "this redefines comedy as a concept., nothing would ever be the same after they made this joke." The first post I saw of it called it “the funniest scene ever put on American television” or something ridiculous like that. And it’s just a way-too-long scene making fun of kitschy musicals? The worst part is The Simpsons used to have actually funny bits, people just latch onto the worst aspects for some reason. Breaking out into song is always excruciating to watch for me, I'd rather see blood in my stool than characters doing a musical number

      I thought the joke was that Troy the B-movie loser and fish-fricker was proving that he was actually an incredible actor now that his faux-engagement to Selma was getting him top-level roles like this.

        It's like the Legion of guys insisting that bringing back Ren & Stimpy with John K and the original staff would revitalize western animation, but completely miss the point that everything it did has been done and make hackneyed by the likes of Family Guy and adult swim shows like Superjail, King Star King, and Mr. Pickles.

          The big advancement of R&S were the painted gross out shots and Smiling Friends found out how to update those with 3D models.

            Early Spongebob was already doing those. I'm pretty sure Drawn Together did them a few times, too.

    The Simpsons was landmark writing in an animated medium for it's time and it still holds up today for anyone who isn't a brain rotted homosexual who needs constant shock value and stimulation.

    Nobody said every joke in it was classic. Nobody said this one was.

    Meh. Citizen Kane was boring. Everybody knows it was his sled. It was as boring as staring at the ceiling, as the camera often did in deep focus. If I wanted to hear overlapping conversations I would just go outside. The make-up looks fake nowadays. The music was tackily toned to the emotions of the scene. The character study of some random dude made with flashbacks has been done so many times.

    3/10 it's mildly amusing at best.

      In all honesty, a lot of the score of Citizen Kane borders on Mickey Mousing.
