I'm pretty sure Fitch would agree that lots of videogames shouldn't have sequels either.

It's always bothered me that the Simpsons don't age. I fell in love with the show from day one, and those characters. But when they don't grow older, and their past is continually rewritten, it's like they're not even the same characters/show anymore.

That was what was so great about King of the Hill. Despite being animated they committed to progressing time, at least for the first 3 or so seasons. Then they gave up on it, and every episode starting being the same shit regurgitated in a slightly different manner, and I stopped watching. I really do think it was the best show on TV, at least for a little while.

Fact: I love the Simpsons. I own Seasons 1-12 on DVD and watch all of the new episodes.

And I can say that The Simpsons now sucks and is goodness-awful. The new episodes are an affront to the quality that was the older Simpsons. I say with all seriousness that the last three seasons have been completely unwatchable.

Ke$ha sucks. I've only heard two of her songs but they sound exactly the same.

The Simpsons died after season 13. Also, if they made a collection of the best episodes from the last five years they'd probably only have enough to fill up one floppy disk.

Andrew Fitch is an idiot and a hypocrite, you complain about milking a franchise but play sequels past 3. You have not seen an episode of the Simpson so how can you just any of the past seasons? Is that how you review games? You must hate Super Mario Galaxy 2, thats really milking the franchise and is nothing like the original.

And Smallville, he's not at the level of Batman? Superman is the MOST recognized fictional character anyway. As a person from anywhere to name five superheroes I bet you they will say Superman. You seem to take your own opinion as irrefutable logic, when in fact you make the least amount of sense on the geekbox. You sound like you are either perpetually drunk or on some kind of drugs.

In closing you are a moron.

Dear rage-filled newbie,

Andrew Fitch will never read this. If you bothered to pay attention to the podcast while you listen, you'd know that he never goes on any forums, let alone this one. You are figuratively yelling at a brick wall here.

In closing you are a moron.

His crass attitude is wrong. And as for Superman versus Batman being the most recognized, is that in the entire world, or just the US? Because by now, I'd say heroes like Batman and Spiderman have much more traction around the world versus Superman. I mean, shit. There's an Indian-Spiderman now. Where's my Indian-Superman?

I know he doesn't read them, but I know Higgins does. So does Karen and so does Ryan, I am pretty sure they would bring up this obvious big topic since certain unaware douchebags *cough* you *cough* don't know their ass from their elbow.

Spider-Man and Batman are NOT as recognizable as Superman, and I hate Superman. So this isn't some fanboy love shit. Spider-Man who happens to be my favorite character is nowhere near as famous or know as Supes. Batman is on the come up for sure but he is not at the level of a Superman. Closest you can get but not pass him in anyway.

For you 'Indian Spider-Man' stupidity, there has been a Russian Superman. Where's your Russian Spider-Man. See how fucking ignorant and stupid that argument is? Please do not make me pull out my Comic Book Nerd Penis and smack you in the face with its massive girth because my knowledge is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay strong. You can google Spider-Man and click on alternate version... Oh shit so can! There is millions of different versions of every character. Give me something credible like I don't know.... People in Uruguay yelling Batman and Spider-Man when asked about superheroes, or kids in 3rd world countries, I bet you those people who can't even read know who Superman is. Superman = Superhero.

Master Higgins, Ryan Scott, and Karen Chu have better things to do with their life than inform Fitch he has a detractor on the internet called "Shinifox." Like I said, you're accomplishing nothing. Oh, except being annoying as collateral damage. You're doing a good job at that. Speaking of which:

Mostly Shinifox, since Fitch was being a hater on his podcast, among his friends. This is opposed to Shinifox who is raging out on random strangers, on a community forum that he's contributed nine posts to. That's the kind of behavior I expect to see on the blog comments, not here.

And for the record, I probably overreacted too. :?

Listening to them talk about Inception was like listening to them talk about an episode of Lost.
