This is musical rather than film/TV oriented. And it may not even be that unpopular. Regardless…

The instrumentation of Collins-era Genesis is better than the instrumentation of Gabriel-era Genesis. Not the quality of the singing, nor the songwriting, just the instrumentation. Gabriel-era Genesis just doesn’t have that haunting synth sound I love.

Also, since Doctor Who reminded me. . . .

Most TV series shouldn’t run past five seasons. Five seasons should be sufficient to tell any stories worth telling, and that goes triple for shows with 20+ episodes per season. Series with 6-10 seasons are bloated; series with 11+ seasons are zombified.

As a kid I would sometimes catch the Simpsons on TV. I didn’t love it, but it was perfectly serviceable. Then I kept hearing online when I got older that people thought it was bad now and was better in the earlier scenes. One day I watched the very first episode in order to test that. The one where they find the dog on Christmas or something. The quality was exactly the same. Only the animation had changed. If it were written today, I wouldn’t have noticed the difference.

Conclusion: The Simpsons hasn’t gotten any worse since it started.

I’m trying really hard to honour the rules of this thread, but this is pushing my buttons something fierce. . . .
