    Nice update to the intro. Not sure about the couch gag or some of the bits that have been tacked on (like beheading Jedediah)

    Is it wrong that I found the new intro to be more entertaining than their entire last season?

    So are they hoping to get a 20 year run out of this one as well? :eek:

    I like the updated look. Very nice.. 20 years of one opening is a good long run. It is about time they updated it...

    The new intro was fun and a nice little update.

    However, the couch gag was utter nonsense.

    nice, bout time they updated something. Liked when the twins were texting. Still dont know if this will get me back to watching them; I left them around the 10th season.

    That's awesome. I know the original opening is classic, but it was long overdue for a makeover. And the movie notwithstanding, it's sad that this is the best writing that the show has seen in a LOOOOONG time.

    Finally, they update the intro! Talk about long overdue... But the couch gag not withstanding, am I the only one who thinks there's too much going on now? I know there's a lot of lovable characters in there, but I don't think it was nessessary to cram them all in like that.

    Like slapping a new coat of paint on a dilapidated house. And I guess the progressively longer couch gags must be so they don't have to write as much actual show.

    Nice to see the Mr. Sparkle box, though.

    :lol  I like it. The couch gag was good, but the little extra bits like Barney belching and stirring up the leaves, Otto eating the rod and Homer actually being hit by the car made it.

    The couch gag was long, but for those that have commented on it, dont forget that every other episode changes its couch gag. this was just longer since its the first updated intro.

    Indeed. I thought that was more what the quick pan across all the characters was better suited for. But the Simpsons have always loved their self-references so it's not surprising they've bloated the opener with them so much now too. Personally I'd much rather any show have a short opener and get on with the job of entertaining. It's not like the Simpsons don't run staff credits over the beginning of the actual episode anyways, so this long opener doesn't even take care of that distraction. Still, not to worry as it'll be hacked down in various ways now when the show runs too long for the timeslot.

    Well I think that the new intro was pretty crappy, so yea its still better than the entire last season.
