bad vibes from The SImpsons medical marijuana episode
    #4227008 - 05/27/05 04:31 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

When did this air?  2001?  2002?  The episode gives an overall negative comment on the use of marijuana.  Did it seem this way to anyone else?  I mean, just the thing about Homer sitting upstairs on a couch with Otto, what else well Homer showing up to that rally all unkempt, with his shirt untucked, what else then there was him laughing at anything, and there was just overall this really condescending negative attitude towards every aspect of marijuana culture.  And I think that is possible because we all know the writers who started the show all walked out in 1997 feeling themselves spread thin and were replaced with corporate scabs.  :mad:

:stoned:

Well I'm just saying I don't get altogether warm vibes from the Simpsons medical marijuana episode, which they do in every other episode with social commentary...it's all friendly in the end but that episode just feels like it got edited b y some angry bastard at the DEA.  Maybe I'm wrong.  I mean I'm curious if drinkers are every annoyed when the Simpsons portray drinking as a debauched habit that leads to Barnieism, which they do most often...  I just think they didn't really show any good side to marijuana use, maybe there is none?  i don't know.

I thought it was a pretty funny episode. It did play to stereotypes but did so knowingly.

Well, ok, that is how stoners are, but many other people use it in a way that really helps make their life better...and the episode seemed to me like it was saying if you try smoking, medicinally or whatever other reason, you will end up as a lazy unkempt stoner. I don't know. It just felt a little more down on it than they used to be, like that whole death tamale episode was all positive, and pot use can have some of the same benefits as peyote for example.

I agree completly. with the first post. that show had a very bad vibe. First the obvious Phish is a government operation (good riddance to those schum sucking bottom feeders). Secound, it had a very bad Medical MJ message. Third and probably more obvious its fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch scumlord bastard himself.

The Simpson's is not politically correct. It capitalizes on stereotypes and humor at other people's expense, as long as it gets a few laughs and good ratings.

Is that true? Because it sure makes sense. All the social commentary really was taken out of that show around that time. They really dumbed it down, took out the social, political and religious commentary out, and really made it into just a kids show. The jokes went from being very witty and sometimes inciteful to being fart joke style humor. I stopped watching it after season 8 or 9.

As for the Phish/pot episode, the DEA did approve that script. Don't you remember when they made a deal where the networks didn't have to use a certain amount of their valuable advertising time on anti-drug spots if they let the DEA approve the shows?

the simpsons are satire..  they make fun of everything, usually through sarcasm.. sometimes directly though.

i see nothing wrong with the medical weed episode. in fact its funny as hell.. especially when they play donovan 'wear your love like heaven' ..

chill out its a freakin cartoon :stoned:

Absolutely it's true Learyfan.  Most of the writers felt they were starting to repeat some of the same plot ideas and whatnot, and they wanted to end the show while it was still pretty good.  Fox refused.  So about 9 out of 12 of them quit.  Fox brought in 9 new writers to replace them including Conan O'Brien's sister who has zero comedy writing credentials other than being Conan O'Brian's sister. 

So the show has become, as you say, just zany and annoying, without depth.  And so it has fulfilled Troy McClure's prophecy from that one 'best of' episode around 1995 that the Simpsons adventures would continue "until it ceases to be profitable."  Sad.
