Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious - 7/10 One of Season 8's weaker episodes. I guess it's partially personal preference, as I tend to dislike musical episodes. However, that aside, it wasn't all that funny, and the best jokes weren't even referencing Mary Poppins (e.g. 'you work for Carl'). Still, not bad though.
Grift of the Magi - 7.5/10 Upon rewatching, this is probably one of Season 11's best. It does kind of lose it at the end, and I didn't think that Gary Coleman was used all that well, but the first half had some pretty solid humour.
Little Girl in the Big Ten - 8/10 A pretty good episode from Season 13 (something the season has a lot of), but not as good as 'I am Furious (Yellow)' and not nearly as good as 'Half-Decent Proposal'. Somewhat overrated, but I enjoyed the plot and Lisa and Bart working together - although some aspects of the episode were done better by previous episodes. I also didn't really like the ending.
Homer the Heretic - 9.25/10 A very good episode, albeit somewhat overrated. It is funny, but not as funny as many make it out to be. That aside, this does not prevent this episode from being a true classic.

King of the Hill
Sex, Pies and Idiot Scrapes - 6/10
Started off terribly by mocking the Irish :/ I liked how the episode showed Homer and Ned's friendship but having both of them becoming bounty hunters doesn't work very well. Marge's side-story was decent, could've been better.
Lost Verizon - 6/10
Started off great, but started to lose it after Bart steals Dennis Leary's phone and then when Bart put viagra in Skinner's coffee, that was the point when the episode became terrible. Still, it's an okay episode but could've been much better.
Mona Leaves-a - 7.5/10
Love this episode a lot more than I thought. It still has moments which could've been improved, but I'm still satisfied with it and the ending was incredibly sad.

I'm watching my favourite season again
Kamp Krusty - 4/5
A Streetcar Named Marge - 3.5/5
"Trust in yourself & you can achieve anything" - Lisa Simpson
Favourite Season - Season 4
Lady Bouvier's Lover : 17/20 4.5/5
Secrets of a Successful Marriage : 12/20 3/5
Bart of Darkness : 18/20 5/5
Lisa's Rival : 14/20 3.5/5
The Trouble With Trillions - B
Bart vs. Australia - B
Bart the Genius - A
The PTA Disbands -- A
The Bart Wants What it Wants - 7/10
Another Simpsons Clip Show : 2/20 1/5
Little Big Mom - 5.75 Middle quality episode... for Season 11. Some scenes were reasonably funny, but Homer and Bart kind of acted in an annoying fashion.
Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo - 6.75/10 One of the better travel episodes, allthough not a patch on 'Bart vs Australia'. Upon rewatching, I didn't find it as funny as it used to be.
Itchy & Scratchyland : 5/20 1.5/5 The beginning is very good, but I hate the part in Itchy&Scratchyland.
Little Big Mom: D+ ~~ 4/10
Bart and Homer were utter jerks, the last act was typical tangenty stuff with them going to Hawaii, more pain gags as well, and to top it off it's not even that funny like season 11 can be, if you look at it in a relaxed fashion. I consider myself to be slightly nicer towards season 11 than most fans but even I can see this episode was just plain bad.
Marge Gets A Job: B ~~ 7/10
A low point for season 4. The plot lacked focus, the sub plot was almost completely laugh-less and the whole wolf thing was just too over the top. The "House sinking" thing was also pretty wacky and I don't know, the whole thing felt dull. The episode touched upon points and then just left them, it just didn't flow naturally. Sort of like the Otto Show, it just keeps changing focus (house sinking, Marge gets job, Bart's subplot) - I think it would have been better if there was no sub plot at all. Tom Jones wasn't that great either.
Lisa's First Word: A ~~ 9/10
Funny and touching, but not perfect. I love all the classic flashbacks, and this is no exception, but I actually consider And Maggie Makes Three and perhaps The Way We Was and I Married Marge to this. Not sure why, it just didn't feel perfect. Maybe because the episode was too grounded around the house (even the flashback scenes were mainly in the house), I dunno. It just didn't feel perfect like some of the others.
Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie: B ~~ 7.5/10
I think the main problem was this episode was again, the plotting. It seems like much of the episode is Bart being mischievous and trying to see the movie; it barely goes anywhere. Also the whole Maggie driving thing was way too far out for me, considering there were other things with Maggie that could have happened but still resulted in the punishment like, I guess Maggie could have almost fallen out of a window? Or something. It just felt unnecessary. On the plus side it is pretty funny as is to be expected from the classic era.

- TreeHouse Of Horror III
- Itchy And Scratchy: The Movie
- Marge Gets A Job
Three decent episodes. Although I must say I prefer Treehouse of Horror III and Marge Gets A Job to Itchy And Scratchy: The Movie. I'll probably be watching more of Season 17 next. I want to try and finish off my rewatch of Season 17 as fast as possible.
Sideshow Bob Roberts : 4/5
"LIES ! LIES !"
Life On The Fast Lane -- A
The Call Of The Simpsons -- A
Season 2 Disc 1:
Bart Gets An F: 9/10
Simpsons And Delilah: 7/10
Treehouse of Horror: 9/10
Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish: 10/10
Dancin' Homer: 6/10
Dead Putting Society: 7/10
Last Exit To Springfield - 8.75/10 A strong episode, and one of Season Four's better episodes, but not the 'best episode ever' as it is sometimes claimed.
Faith Off - 6/10 Average stuff. I enjoyed the musical number, and liked the fact that the episode's start actually had something to do with the rest of the episode, unlike many other post-classic episodes. However, it wasn't all that funny.
Blame it on Lisa
Had a Simpsons marathon with all the Simpsons episodes I'd recorded on Sky.
All About Lisa - 7/10
Any Given Sundance - 6/10
Bart's Friend Falls in Love - 8/10
Special Edna - 7.5/10
The Dad Who Knew Too Little - 7/10
The Monkey Suit - 6.5/10
Husbands and Knives - 5.5/10
Pray Anything - 5/10
Double, Double, Boy in Trouble - 7/10
Dangerous Curves - 6/10
Mypods and Boomsticks - 6/10
The Devil Wears Nada - 6.5/10
Treehouse of Horror V : A 9/10
