But the first two episodes this year have been dreadfully awful.
I stopped watching regularly about 5 years ago. I've watched about half the episodes since then, and all the characters and episode premises have become so painfully one-note that watching one episode is pretty much the exact same as watching any other one. YES, I GET IT, THAT'S A THING FROM POLITICS OR POPULAR CULTURE! Every....single....episode. Some of the more original ones are good (Imaginationland was freakin' awesome) but 75% of them are drawn-out, 22-minute long, way-late "references". I mean, making fun of people that buy all of Apple's products was old as hell by the time Futurama parodied it last year.
Looking back actually, they've been doing that for like 8 years now. IMO they peaked at season 6 and then fell off a cliff.
