Obviously your opinion and you are entitled to it, but that seems to be an exaggeration to me and I vehemently disagree with you here. Criticize new episodes all you want but a boring clip show is still a boring clip show. I'm actually more likely to rewatch the trainwreck that is "Greatest Story Ever D'ohed" than this ever again. At least that had the minute and a half of decent footage before it went to hell.
Of course I am one of the few who can still find some good stuff in every new episode so I'm biased.
Bart's Girlfriend also too high. I found it to be a really unmemorable episode.
I wish that Lisa's Wedding, Lisa on Ice and The PTA Disbands was higher
Sideshow Bob Roberts, Itchy & Scratchy Land, and Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy are all far too low. I also would have liked to see And Maggie Makes Three a little higher.
As for the clip show, it's definitely the worst of Season 6, but it's not terrible. It's certainly better than the dreadful "All Singing, All Dancing".
I'm happy of the rating of Bart of the darkness because it's my favorite episode of all !
LETS is even funnier nowadays because of the Union Hate, Corporate D-Baggery, and Conservativism flooding over this country like an overflowing storm sewer. Hell, even Mr. Burns's quest to destroy the Dental Plan (Lisa needs Braces!) strikes a chord because so many businesses can't afford the "Obamacare".

Really? What was so freaking boring about this episode? Not enough jerkass Homer? The plot made too much sense?
EDIT: I must be drunk like an Irishman to screw up this Irishman reference.

Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.
Believe it or not Jake when I first was about to post about LETS in this thread that bumper car Irishmen scene was something I was going to point out as being great....but it doesn't happen in that episode. It actually happens in "$pringfield."

the bear who loves to love
Lisa The Iconoclast (possibly my favourite episode of the entire series), Much Apu About Nothing, and The Day The Violence Died all too low here, for me, but I'm pleased Summer of 4 Ft. 2 is the winner.
Can't help but feel WSMB, Bart on the Road and THOH are too high. But then again, i guess it's quite hard to rank episodes in season 7 considering how great a season it is.
06-21-2011, 06:07 AM
Needs a little love
I never understood why people love Summer of 4 ft. 2 so much. I don't think it's bad; just adequate.
06-21-2011, 06:16 AM
I think it is one of those funny but also emotionally resonant episodes involving Lisa kinda like "Lisa's Substitute." That said, it would not be in my top 5 of season 7. Alot of these seem way too low but looking at what beats them out it is really hard to argue. Iconoclast should not be higher than at least half the episodes below it though.
06-21-2011, 06:28 AM
I actually just finished watching the season but didn't have a chance to make my own list How is A Fish Called Selma at seventeen? It's the best of the season! I know there are many many highlights in this season but I can't help but feel that the best have been ranked too low (such as the aforementioned AFCS, Lisa The Vegetarian and King Homer all of which should be top 5). I also don't see why Summer of 4 ft 2 is number one, it's a very good episode but hardly the best of the season.
06-21-2011, 06:34 AM
Very disappointed to see Home Sweet down in 10th behind Marge Be Not Proud, Lisa the Veggie ahead of Iconoclast, and Summer of 4ft 2 win over Bart Sells His Soul and 22 Short Films.
06-21-2011, 06:51 AM
Lisa the Iconlast is too low and Bart on the Road is too high. Otherwise, I agree.
06-21-2011, 07:39 AM
Marge be not proud and The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular are too high.
Home Sweet Homediddly-dum-doodily, Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish" and Homer the Smithers are too low.
06-21-2011, 09:07 AM
withered gas station rose
King Size Homer, Team Homer and Lisa the Vegetarian are is way too high. Marge Be Not Proud and A Fish Called Selma are too low.
06-21-2011, 09:14 AM
Too low: Raging Abe Simpson, Marge Be Not Proud, Lisa the Vegetarian
Too high: Bart on the Road
All in all, this list is pretty good, though.
06-21-2011, 02:18 PM
Bart on the Road is too high I wanted Lisa the Iconoclast & Marge Be Not Proud to be higher
06-22-2011, 12:17 AM
Pleased with the winner so much It's great to finally see one of my Top 5 favourite Simpsons episode in the top spot.
Other than that, Radioactive Man is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too low. I'd expect it to be out of the Top 10 but not second-to-last. To be honest, Homerpalooza shouldn't be last. I know that the episode didn't meet certain expectations but being last on the list is going too far. Lisa the Iconoclast is too low. One of my favourites of this season. Besides all these small issues, the list is still pretty good
Bring on Season 8, my favourite!

I think Radioactive-man is overrated.
I love the fake Milhouse who explodes.

Wow, good list, but I'm surprised to see The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Sohw at only 13! Thought it would have been top 5.
06-23-2011, 04:47 AM
My top 2 from this season are only beaten by the highly overrated "You Only Move Twice" so pretty good list.
06-23-2011, 05:59 AM
I wasn't expecting the episode You Only Move Twice first.
Also Lisa's Date with Density is too low, but overall it's a good ranking.
06-23-2011, 07:48 AM
Lisa's Date with Density is too low. I'm happy that Homer's Phobia's in the top 5 as it's one of the good episodes from Season 8
06-23-2011, 05:12 PM
Disapointed Homer vs. 18th Ammendment didn't win but overwise top 5 looks about right.
Was not expecting the Poochie episode to be this far from the bottom, thought that was generally considered one of the worst of seasons 1-8.
06-23-2011, 05:19 PM

The Springfield Files is way way too high. I&S&P should at least be in the top ten.
06-23-2011, 06:07 PM
Yay, my favourite season!
Great list, except You Only Move Twice shouldn't be first. It deserves to be in the top ten, but not in the top spot. I think Springfield Files deserves #1, although I'm still happy about its ranking. A Milhouse Divided may be a tad too high, it's great but not the 6th best. The Secret War of Lisa Simpson and Lisa's Date with Density are way too low. They're awesome episodes and they get 11th and 12th spots???
And Mountain of Madness, and My Sister, My Sitter are too low. Overall, this list is pretty average for the best season of all time, but I'm still satisfied.
06-24-2011, 03:19 AM
* "Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment"
* "A Milhouse Divided"
* "Grade School Confidential"
* "My Sister, My Sitter"
* "The Canine Mutiny" (So underrated)
* "Hurricane Neddy"
