Dial 'N' For Nerder Or Not

homerI watched a new episode of The Simpsons last night. It was called "Dial 'N' For Nerder" and as usual with new episodes of The Simpsons these days, it was nothing special.

I'm also making my way through season 10 on DVD. By season 10 you can see the sparky genius dissipating. Now in season 19 it's not uncommon for a new episode to draw less than 8 million viewers. It's no longer must-see television.

I'm at a place where I still enjoy new episodes, especially with the kids, but I know I wouldn't be watching if it weren't for those first six seasons in the 1990s that blew my mind. Homer has earned the right to be just okay.

What I hate is no longer laughing that hard because I know the episodes inside out.

Still must see TV at my house. It would have to get pretty shitty before I stop.
