The Simpsons is dead. Long live The Simpsons!

I'm of the camp that holds that The Simpsons should have called it quits about 10 years ago. At some point, the show stopped working as the smartest sitcom ever and became a loosely connected series of winking pop-culture jokes. Still, I suppose even a tired Simpsons episode is still better than many shows out there.

Nevertheless, I'm dazzled by this website that provides online access to every episode. Relive the good ol' days with seasons one through seven, or so. You can even check out every Futurama episode here. The Scrubs-y pop culture riffing in Futurama doesn't grate on me the same way it does in The Simpsons, maybe because it had a nice run and then packed it in before it began a long, moldering decline.

[UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long. Both sites are gone as of 10/2/06, after pressure from some bullying lawyers from Fox, apparently.]
