Stupid, stupid stupid.

Just like that TV Show the Simpsons. A family doing everything that a family shouldn't and people laugh at it.

No wonder our jails are so full.

Yeah its a pretty stupid kind of funny, sorry It should have come with a warning. I'm at that age when I can appreciate stupid immature humor, and the more sophisticated humor...... I'll try and find a clip from Fawlty towers next time ;)

I think the simpsons are so popular, that we all see a little of ourselves(or some we know) in each of the characters. Even though they are dysfuntional and irrational they still do care about the important things in life when it comes to the crunch.

The Simpsons and South Park were never intended for children but because they are cartoon format people tend to let the kids watch them,I know lots of parents that do not let the children watch them.I`m not fussed on South Park but i must admit some of the story lines on the Simpsons have been clever.The bible story was brilliant,the Egyptians flushed their toilets all at once which helped part the sea, some staunch religous people may not see the funny side but we all have a right to see things as we see them.

We have most seasons up to season 10 on DVD, season 1 is rated G, all the rest are PG. which in my opinion is the correct rating(for our current system). It would be wrong to make it a M rating. What would be better though would be another category between PG and M, which I feel the Simpsons would fit in nicely.

I think M would be quite fitting actually, Simspons really is only for Mature audiences. Not in the same way that Die Hard is rated M though. But in that little kids are going to pick up the bad habits and attitude of Bart, for example.

I'd probably let my kids watch certain episodes but defiantly wouldn't let them watch it regularly.

And there are a lot of subtle, clever jokes in there.

I think its annoying that particularly in recent years the advertising for the Simpson's (especially the movie) is targeted a lot more at younger audiences, but I guess its a matter of whatever sells the advertising slots.

I am not a Simpsoms fan, have never watched the show so can't comment on that as such.

But when it comes to kids picking up bad habits, all you have to do is watch pretty much any cereal ad aimed at kids to see how appallingly they behave.

The adverts that depict kids slinging food about, backchatting parents etc can only but make it more difficult for parents raising children in the current time.

Bring back good old fashioned manners and etiquette please. Please and Thank you seems to be a thing of the past as well.

And say excuse me when you walk in front of someone and they just look at you as if you are from another planet.

Television is great in many ways but it also has a lot to answer for as well.

All it means is they won't go hunting illegal immigrants down on weekends and public holidays. It's not like the gates to the country will be open for all to enter on weekends :lol:
