Quote from: JamesTC on January 08, 2021, 11:12:10 PMSeason 19 - Episode 1 - He Loves to Fly and He D'ohsthey have hired a comedian and given him loads of dialogue but not a single actual joke or even vaguely funny line.
Quote from: checkoutgirl on January 10, 2021, 10:31:40 PMNot true. At one point he does three jokes in a roughly one minute period, when Homer is caught in the bannister. They may be such rubbish nothing jokes they barely register but they are jokes nonetheless. Deadpan, badly written, unfunny jokes.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 08, 2021, 11:39:09 PMSeason 19 - Episode 2 - The Homer of SevilleLenny and Carl have sex with the old ladies just a few seconds after the ladies say they aren't interested.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 10, 2021, 10:33:31 PMIs it three? I remember the bit about him needing to record background noise from behind Homer and that is it. Argh.
Quote from: checkoutgirl on January 10, 2021, 10:35:55 PMNot true. They never say they're not interested. They roll their eyes and the next frame is the limousine rocking as it drives off. They never verbally respond to Carl's indirect suggestion of sex or "hooking up" as it's referred to by the old woman. Whether that's "rapey" or not is a personal opinion I suppose.
Quote from: mippy on January 10, 2021, 11:41:33 PMI believe Bart's line about the IRA in that episode that gets cut for TV in the UK. (As does, now, "I've reviewed the latest tractors....and they're all shite!!")I always hated the lazy stereotypes of The Simpsons Are Going To... episodes, but that one went quickly from "a bit plastic" to "actually offensive now"
Quote from: JamesTC on January 10, 2021, 11:02:56 PMThere is barely a couple of seconds between them saying they aren't interested
Quote from: checkoutgirl on January 11, 2021, 01:40:16 AMMust be a different edit I have because they never say anything at all, positive or negative, after Carl hints at sex in the version I saw. Can you provide a link or download of what you watched? Mileage can vary but if we're not comparing the same thing that's à moot point.
Quote from: JamesTC on January 11, 2021, 01:46:10 AMI'm watching on Disney+.The women say they are interested in Homer so Carl makes a comment (something along the lines of Homer not being there from what I remember) and then the limo is rocking.

Quote from: JamesTC on January 11, 2021, 09:50:18 AMOne thing I've noticed over the past season is how much dumber Marge has gotten.
Quote from: the on January 11, 2021, 10:36:01 AMSomething that's striking when you see these written down is, there's often a complete disconnection between what's happening at the start of the show and what the main plot is.
Quote from: thr0b on January 11, 2021, 09:40:37 AMThere's a lot in current Simpsons which makes it no longer a safe family show.An episode on Sky One recently, post season-20 (could be season 30) featured Reverend & Helen Lovejoy in a sex shop (him in a gimp suit) and the resolution of the episode featured Homer & Marge having a selection of sex toys in the garden, including a queening stool with the heavy implication that Marge likes like and powerful dildos ("I want the one which takes sixteen batteries!").
Quote from: Phil_A on January 11, 2021, 11:07:03 AMSomething I've noticed in recent episodes is a tendency towards casual gore and gross-out stuff, way beyond the point where it feels appropriate for this kind of show. I think the most recent one I've seen was a "Homer in Roman times" episode which just had maiming and slaughtering all over the shop. Not to say comedy gore can't be funny, but it feels weird and unpleasant in The Simpsons.That kind-of stuff had started to creep in more during the years when the series was declining but not yet completely unredeemable - I can't remember which episode it is but there's definitely one that ends with a guy's severed leg flying off (checked, it was "Faith Off" from Season 11).
