Matt Groening’s monster hit The Simpsons, one of the most groundbreaking shows in the history of television, is charging into its mid-30s with yet another lackluster season full of uninspired, borderline unwatchable episodes. A show that once packed in a timeless laugh-out-loud moment every couple of seconds is now lucky if it gets one or two genuine belly laughs a year. A few seasons back, the writers dedicated a whole episode to the origin story of Moe’s bar rag. The Simpsons seems to just be continuing because it makes the network enough money to justify its existence and it’s too late to conclude the series in a way that’s truly meaningful.
