MATT ZOLLER SEITZ: Why, After 500 Episodes, Slagging The Simpsons Is Unfair

At some point, a show stops being a show and becomes a utility: gas, electricity, water, "The Simpsons." That’s not my line; it’s cribbed from a quote about "60 Minutes" by its creator, the late Don Hewitt. But it seems appropriate to recycle a point about one long-running program in an article about another when it’s as self-consciously self-cannibalizing as "The Simpsons."
