Of course futurama and the best years of the Simpsons skewered politics, but Simpsons ended up getting too preachy. One of the last episodes of modern Simpsons I remember is an episode where Bart becomes a feminist. I mean, really? And the show ended up pretty much morphing into “Lisa & The Simpsons”Futurama never shied away from political or hot button topics, and often handled them more deftly than the Simpsons. The show was at its best when it highlighted the diverse cast of supporting characters (creatures?) it created over the years.
BTW I’d love to see the first four seasons released on Blu-ray.
