Hey, look, it’s this thing. Certainly has been a while, hasn’t it? Oh me, oh my… Here’s the lowdown: after finishing those final extra reviews, I intended on writing up a grand finale, a “What Have We Learned?” if you will, to serve as a final recap of my thoughts about the entire series, or at least the first 444 episodes of it. But, alas, reality intervened. Hours at my new job skyrocketed, to the point that I was working six, seven day weeks up from February to about mid July, with nothing to show for it but crazy overtime pay and IMDB credit on six summer movies. At that point, my heart wasn’t up to completing the recap. Too much time had passed; the blog would just continuing existing as is, a capsule of my crazy viewing experience through my favorite show.
But is enough, really enough?
Morbid curiosity is a cruel, cruel mistress. As Zombie Simpsons continues to barrel forward, I still remain flabbergasted that there remain a whole bunch of episodes of the Simpsons, as hollow of a shell as it is now, that I haven’t seen. And most of them I know nothing about. And beyond a shadow of a doubt, I’m certain that they are all horrible. Absolutely fucking horrible. I remain stunned at how the series continued to get worse and worse each passing season; by the time I got to season 20, there didn’t appear to be anywhere lower to go. But I’d said that in the past, and clearly we were much, much worse. Just as I had done during its first airing, at episode 444, I packed it in. But what future ridiculous adventures would the Simpson family endure? As ghastly as they may be, part of me would still like to know.
If you didn’t pick up on it, basically what I’m saying is I’m thinking of continuing the blog, picking up where I left off at episode 445, and continuing to the present. But is it even worth it? By the last couple seasons, I felt I was spinning my wheels with my reviews, because my complaints were becoming repetitive, since the show kept pulling the same shit over and over, whether it be ineffective joke telling, piss poor characterization, or inept attempts at parody or satire. I’m sure I’d find a lot of the same moving forward, but I still remain curious as to what further shit is down the road. The reviews wouldn’t be daily, and I may make them even shorter to avoid becoming too redundant, but I want to ask you guys what you think of this. That is if anyone is still reading this. My hope is that people are still subscribed to me, and will be surprised to see this pop up on their feed. Do you think it’s worth continuing my journey deeper and deeper into the mud? Is there anything left to comment on? Or should I forge forth just so you can be amused by my unrelenting anger by the absolute garbage I will be witnessing? I’ll let you guys have your say. My life, and my sanity, is in your grubby little hands.
