It was from Season Six's "A Star Is Burns", where Springfield held a film festival. Homer, who is one of the panel judges for the film festival, says this after watching Barney's production of "Pukahontas" where Barney depicts the sad details regarding the life of a man enslaved by alcohol. Right after the movie, he starts tearing up and looking sad and that's where your quote comes in. That's also the episode that has the crossover with The Critic. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, I'm going off of memory (and if I'm right, then Jesus Christ what have I done with my life? ).
You're dead right. As I affirmed, a very funny episode -where else does Lost Weekend compete with Ben Hur only to become deadlocked by America's Funniest Home Videos? Genius comedy!

Re: The Simpsons

I don't think The Simpsons has "lost its spark and soul"...it's been on 20 seasons and is still funny. I can't think of a single series that has gone on for over a decade and was still enjoyable or interesting other than The Simpsons.

I'll take a mediocre Simpsons episode over just about anything else that's passing itself off for comedy on TV these days.

Dr. Who...yes. I don't think those others were on for over a decade...maybe Mash...but not by much.

Plus it's Sideshow Bob that gave those other 2 shows any value in the first place...

Mash, Cheers, Dr. Who and Frasier all went over a decade in first run.

I feel the same way about Star Trek. As much as the latter half of VOYAGER, and pretty much all of ENTERPRISE annoyed me, I'd still rather watch those than anything else on TV now.

MASH, Cheers, and Fraiser all ran 11 years each, so you're both right and wrong.
