It appears that FOX is about to produce a series of movies based on their prime-time animated series. First on the list is a sequel to the 2007 "Simpson's Movie", which in my opinion is about ten years too late. Then there is a planned "Family Guy Movie", which seems like something that should have been made years ago. I was on the "Family Guy" train in the early days but the endless pop culture homages and randomness (like the never ending chicken fights) got old pretty quick.
That leads us to the planned "Bob's Burgers Movie" which is actually a movie I would plunk down my money to see. I think that the show is absolutely brilliant and it always makes me laugh out load.
Check this bit from Slash Film:
The Simpsons has been in a rut for the last…decade or so. But at one point, it was one of the funniest shows on TV. And while recent seasons have been lacking, the 2007 Simpsons movie was surprisingly good. While the show has continued to soldier on, a second film has yet to make it to the drawing board. Until now. A new report in the Wall Street Journal reveals that Fox is developing a second Simpsons movie. There are also plans for Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy movies. A Bob’s Burgers movie could turn out well. I’m less enthusiastic about a Family Guy film, because it feels as if that show has long run its course. Kind of like The Simpsons, come to think of it…
I echoed a lot of this writer's thoughts about "The Simpson's" a couple of weeks ago in the post: Will The Simpsons Ever Come To A Merciful End?
The Simpsons just keep going and going and going ... ugh.
I'm going to be honest with you, The Simpsons used to be my favorite TV show. I never missed an episode, in fact I used to tape them (on VHS tape ... I know that I'm old) and watch them over and over again delighting in every hilarious moment.
That was in the nineteen nineties.
Here we are in the year 2018 and the show is still on the air despite jumping the shark somewhere around the year 2000. That's about the time that I stopped watching the show. Don't get me wrong, I have tried to watch new episodes from time to time, but after a few minutes I usually cringe at the bad jokes and needles celebrity cameos and switch to something else. It's truly sad to see just how far a once brilliant television series has fallen.
