Dead Homer Society was a Simpsons blog dedicated to writing about what they argue as the very poor quality of current (season 12 - present) episodes of the show. The site itself has been active since early 2009 while the last entry dates 5 May 2021. On its Twitter account, the last entry dates 3 February 2022. The site was lead by a user nicknamed Charlie Sweatpants, whose Twitter account has also been inactive since late 2020.


The blog considers itself a home for those who dislike the current seasons of The Simpsons. They consider the first seven seasons as "Classic" Simpsons, the next four as declining in quality, and nearly everything from season 12 onwards as "Zombie Simpsons", something which does not even count as the same show.


The blog updates daily with a Simpsons quote of the day. Weekly the site has a "Reading Digest", which links to various Simpsons-related articles and videos that have appeared in the last week.

The blog originally traditionally previewed the new episodes (often with blood splattered promotional images) and reviewed them with a "Crazy Noises" group discussion between, generally, the three founders as well as "Compare and Contrast" posts, which argued that much of the newer episodes are mostly re-hashed material, situations and subject matter from the classic-era of the show, but the classic-era did everything so much better, made far more sense and were much funnier.

In September 2012, the "Crazy Noises" discussions were retired and the "Compare and Contrast"s became more infrequent as the founders felt that they were getting repetitive and stopped watching the new episodes as they had no obligation to do so anymore. The Sunday Previews remained as did the non-criticism themed features "Quote of the Day" and "Reading Digest". In April 2013, the episode reviews returned in the form of a new feature called "Behind Us Forever" this time written entirely by Charlie Sweatpants.

In 2014, Charlie issed an online book titled "Zombie Simpsons: How the Best Show Ever Became the Broadcasting Undead" which can be still purchased on Amazon as of June 2024.
