Then Came The Simpsons Plague, A Disaster
Your mind-set was locked in. The Simpsons is and always will be Funny. After watching up to Season 7 who could argue with You. Season 8 and 9 air, you adjust to the slightly lower standard of Episodes. That’s when “The Simpsons” unleashed the Simpsons Plague: Seasons 10 – 22
What followed were years and years of Sub standard Simpsons Episodes: Bad jokes, Bad Writing, No punch. It turned into a Generic Comedy: Storyline here, Place Joke their, End Episode.
A Disaster, but only to the trained eye of Hardcore Fans.
Writing on The Wall
Hardcore fans could see the writing on the wall: The Simpsons was Finished! In their all-seeing eyes, “The Simspons”, would never be the same again.
Many stopped watching, others only watched periodically, none were taken in by the Simpsons Spell. Unfortunately They were in the minority
How Can You Argue Against 5 Million People
For every Hardcore fan their were 100,000 Simpsons Fans who still adored the show, watching it mindlessly in front of the TV, still telling themselves The Simpsons is Funny, its Funny, funny funny funny.
That is exactly the mentality that has kept the Simpsons Plague spreading. It’s what has kept it on TV for over 22 Seasons and counting. The Simpsons is a Powerhouse started by an animated Comedy that gained Worldwide fame, then spawned merchandise, which together created The Simpsons Franchise.
On average, Season 22 gets 5 million viewers. Proving that You are under the Simpsons Spell, which continues to conquer all.
Can This spell be Replicated?
Has It? Can It? Will It Ever?
In short Yes. But its not been done yet. Both Family Guy and South Park have tried to replicate the success shown by the Simpsons but neither has achieved it.
South Park have tried but rumours have circulated that this Season, (15) will be the last. That leaves it 7 away from the Simpsons which is still powering forward.
Family Guy is in Season 9 and will defiantly carry onto Season 10 at the very least. However Family Guy will never have the Longevity or the Worldwide impact The Simpsons achieved.
