I had seen at least part of the episode "Homer's Enemy", but never gave it much thought.
I only on rare occasion watch the Simpsons, but I enjoy it, and I especially enjoyed the early years. I had never seen the show until I had a chance in the 1990s to work a little on a Simpsons videogame, so I took an interest in it.
There is an almost universal consensus that starting with Season 9 Episode 2, "The Principal and the Pauper", with an absurd storyline about Principal Skinner being an imposter, the show went into decline.
I am amazed that the show has lasted 32 seasons. In one of the episodes celebrating something like the 500th episode, there is some text in the end credits that says, "Think of all the things you could have accomplished if you hadn't watched this show."
