    Now you need to watch the sequels where Apu moves to Springfield and opens a Kwik-E-Mart.Report

    Strange thing, though, is I’m rarely let down by these canonical works of art.

    This is one of the weird things I’ve noticed about recent art. I find that I very much love the stuff that is part of the canon from before the 20th Century… and, starting around WWII, it’s like we don’t know what’s good anymore.

    Like, Catcher in the Rye? Seriously? Say what you will about Charlie Dickens but he knew how to tell a story. (And it seems like Catcher in the Rye is falling out of favor. Who knows if it will be canon in 100 years? 30 years ago, though, it was a lock and everybody knew it.)

    Anyway, yes. I have rarely been disappointed by the stuff in the canon… until the last 100 years.Report
