"It would have been smarter if he'd evolved through the various drawing styles as well."
What's annoyed a lot of Simpsons fans, myself included, has been the steady moronification of Homer, the increasing lack of continuity between shows, and the tendency to rely on completely outlandish throwaway gags to carry the entire half-hour. It used to be a show about a family (a severely dysfunctional one, sure...) with the problems real families have. Homer drinks, and can get pretty violent. Marge tries to keep the house in order despite this. Bart is a fuckup with a good heart. Lisa is an overachiever seeking confirmation from her not-so-peers.
