    This may or may not be the right place for this but here it goes. What is the deal with all the reruns? I cant remember the last time I have seen a new episode on tv,& quite frankley as much as I love the Simpson's I cant stand to watch them anymore because of this. Even when Sunday comes around & its supposed to be an all new episode its still something I've seen three or more times before[​IMG]
    So what's the deal are you guys just running out of ideas or what? I'm dieing to see some NEW stuff.

    Uh, it's the middle of summer. The last new episodes of just-completed season of "The Simpsons" aired about a month ago (just like every other broadcast network series).

    New eps will start in fall, just like always.

    Most weekly TV series have a 25 episode season (some slightly more, some slightly less). The Simpsons is no exception.

    Since there are 52 weeks in the year, half that time will be repeated episodes- on any series. MOst shows go into repeats during the summer season, and pick up with new episodes in the fall.

    The Simpsons have done this for 13 years now, and every other series has done it as well.

    The Simpsons aired 22 new episodes in the 2001-2002 season:
    CABF19 Treehouse of Horror XII
    CABF22 The Parent Rap
    CABF20 Homer the Moe
    CABF18 A Hunka Hunka Burns in Love
    CABF21 The Blunder Years
    DABF02 She of Little Faith
    DABF01 Brawl in the Family
    DABF03 Sweets and Sour Marge
    DABF05 Jaws Wired Shut
    DABF04 Half-Decent Proposal
    DABF06 The Bart Wants What it Wants
    DABF07 The Lastest Gun in the West
    DABF09 The Old Man and the Key
    DABF08 Tales from the Public Domain
    DABF10 Blame it on Lisa
    DABF11 Weekend at Burnsie's
    DABF12 Gump Roast
    DABF13 I Am Furious Yellow
    DABF14 The Sweetest Apu
    DABF15 Little Girl in the Big Ten
    DABF16 The Frying Game
    DABF17 Poppa's Got a Brand New Badge

    I quit watching when they started putting the Fox logo on the screen. The episode that did it for me was when Homer was kicked out and moved into the lighthouse and made the light go out- the screen showed just his eyeballs in the dark, but the damn logo was there too ruining the effect. I'll see the rest of the episodes on DVD.

    No, it's not. Here in Sweden we get baseball games from Fox on a local network, and they have the Fox bug on them, too.
