Well, I jumped and purchased "Song of the Sea" based on the good reviews...



....And I wasn't disappointed.  It's an aesthetically beautiful movie that really tugs on the heartstrings.  Pretty much every scene in the movie is a work of art and the story itself is very, very emotional.   Having seen nothing but Pixar/Disney/Dreamworks kind of made me want to try something different and this was such fresh, wonderful movie.  It's the first time I've ever wanted to watch a movie two times in a row. :0

It's not on Netflix, but Best Buy (in the US) has it for $19.99.

Hi,

Well, there seems to be no REAL answer to if Harry is going to return to the show, or otherwise, but there's been a bit of disturbing talk regarding the recasting of his characters.  IMO, that would be the dumbest thing to do with the show being as old as it it.  

A lot of you probably weren't around, but Harry wasn't the first voice for Mr. Burns and Hank Azaria didn't do Moe the first couple of episodes.  Those two guys were voiced by a guy named Chris Collins (sources have it listed him under slightly different names, but that's what his real name was).  Mr. Collins, whom had made an enemy of James L. Brooks for whatever reason, didn't work out and returned to his comedy career until his death in 1994.  Chris was the voice of Cobra Commander on GI Joe and Starscream in Transformers back in the 80's.  I briefly knew his son, Ben, back in the 90's when I was user of the nerdy alt.tv.simpsons, the source of "Worst. Episode. EVER!" and this was the place the early nerd jokes on the Simpsons were aimed at.

Anyway, back to my point...the show should just end at this point.  Voice actors' pay aside, the writing is terrible, the characters unlikable and the plots are so recycled, you could use them as examples of what "Earth Day" is about.  Despite the awfulness, I still want to watch all the episodes, once, just to say I saw them all in order.  At this point, replacing the voice actors is like pissing on a corpse just to see if it thinks its thirsty.

I was surprised the amount of so-called 'fans' who claimed they could care less if Harry was replaced if the show continued....really?  How OLD is the Simpsons?  26+ Seasons not enough?   When was the last time the show was genuinely funny because it was GOOD?  By the time the next two seasons are done, 625+ episodes will be in the can and the number of bad episodes will outnumber the good and some of you reading this will be like: "So, what?  The Simpsons aren't hurting anything!"  To this point, I bring you Bill Hicks and having passion for your work:

Harry Shearer might have quit (or, is doing a ballsy fake-out) with Fox in negotiations for back-end pay from The Simpsons's merchandising empire.  He agreed to work for the same amount of pay for his voice acting services, but he sent out these tweets on 5/12/15 

from James L. Brooks' lawyer: "show will go on, Harry will not be part of it, wish him the best.". (1/2)

This because I wanted what we've always had: the freedom to do other work. Of course, I wish him the very best. (2/2)

I'll update when I find out more....
