Every now and again you find something hanging around in the back of the fridge or freezer you forgot to throw away. That's how I feel about The Simpsons. Its humour is, in my opinion, long past its "use by" date, feeling stale, dated and tired. Its a shame it hasn't been shelved as what it did do back in the day, premiering on "The Tracey Ullman Show" (remember her?) was fantastic, witty and current. For myself I'd rather remember The Simpsons for what it was than what I believe its become. 4/10 from me.
