Conan should write for The Simpsons again, or at least be a producer. One of the pioneers of the show.

Wow. I am so impressed at this conversation. The Simpsons had been my favorite show since I was about 5. I used to collect so much random Simpson gear when I was a kid. Then when I was a teen I found Conan. I loved him and his humour. It wasn't till years later that I learned Conan had been a writer for the show. And when I found out, it made so much sense to me why I really enjoyed his style of comedy. I'm amazed at the connection these guys have with each other. It makes me so happy because it takes me back to my childhood enjoying my favorite show. I was really surprised that Conan knew what a flophouse was. And then he said "heroin den". I'm assuming he and a few of them dabbled with drugs in their early writing years. I know from experience that you learn certain terminology firsthand. Flophouse is one of those words. I think I love him even more now because he probably had a drug past. It's relatable to me. And it gives me hope.

Fantastic video, but towards the end they're really dodging the topic of the massive decline in quality we've seen in the last 20 years compared to early Simpsons. It's clear they all know, but no one wants to say it.

Sreekala Mohan well that’s just your opinion. The first couple seasons might not have been as funny as the golden years but they had an incredible amount of heart. That kinda took a backseat as the humour got more interesting and then of course when it all got pretty bland and pointless. Yes they’re stereotypes, every single show based on a family is a stereotype of families but I believe they took the format to often clever and interesting places.

JHOT247 Dude calm down, you gotta realise people have different opinions. I agree that nowadays the show is a husk of a thing. Just boring lazy writing but I think people watch it because it’s a comfort show. How many people have spent the past 30 years watching that show, even if it isn’t good anymore, people still love it because it’s a part of their everyday lives. I think it was once one of the greatest things to happen to television but that’s just my opinion.

"Everything that has ever happened in my life I can refer to in an episode of 'The Simpsons' " I believe at almost half of these guys were still working on the show or still are. I know Al Jean and Mike Reiss have never really left and have always been there. I do not know why Jeff Martin and Jay Kogan would have ever left. That's a question that should be asked.

That means an idea went 'over his head'. Americans use that gesture in a funny way when they feel like something being discussed is way beyond their understanding. In this case the Heisenberg Principle is the idea that went over everyone's head.

Whenever the show finally ends, the last episode should end, go to commercial and have Tracey Ullman come on and say good night as if the whole series was part of the Tracey Ullman Show (even though she apparently hated The Simpson's shorts on her show).
