The Simpsons -> The Simpsons Movie

    Really? I don’t know. I’ve been a fan of The Simpsons, and I even defend it against the standard criticism that it’s gotten less funny through the years. But to me, the movie was a big “Meh.”

    It was pretty good — don’t get me wrong — but I think it didn’t adapt as well as it might have, possibly for formal reasons. It terms of plots, it felt like a 30-minute episode, stretched to 90 minutes. Whereas I think the 30-minute presentation (divided by commercials) helps it pace quickly and jump from plot to plot (typically three arcs), it seemed like the movie did the same thing, but with a slower pace to fill the time.

    That was my first impression, though. Maybe I should rewatch it.
