the animation i hate is in season 3. everything's so round.
season one is my least-watched season. not because it's 'bad', i just don't watch it much.
i'm pretty sure in the past a member or two (who i shall not name) claimed one to be the weakest of the series. yea, not of the earlier years, OF THE SERIES AS A WHOLE. and if this member didn't think that then he thought it was one of the weakest. but i'm pretty sure the weakest
homer's enemy is arguably the darkest episode of the show
I think the ending overshadows how truly funny it is though. The majority is Homer just being a slightly exaggerated version of himself to annoy Grimes.
yea but the fact that he had to die just by imitating homer's stupidity is pretty dark
considering how shitty his life was
i dunno why i'm talking about it being dark, even if it is (which i believe it is) it's a hilarious episode
This is what happens when a "normal person" entering the Simpsons universe tries to act like Homer. The darkest episode I believe is Homer's Odyssey from season 1. In retrospect the suicide angle might have been too much for an animated series although Barney tried to kill himself in the Flinstones which was unsettling for me as well.
Why just Homer's Odyssey? He also tries to commit suicide in Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder and Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind.
Like I said, from season 10 on just molds into one for me as most of those episodes haven't stuck in my memory. Plus season 1 has the advantage of being on DVD. I do have 10-12 on DVD but still haven't rewatched all of the episodes yet. I've also been too lazy to get 13 and 14 yet, I'm not sure if I will.
he also tried to kill himself in No Loan Again, Naturally, by hanging himself... right in front of the kids. which was pretty messed up, even if it was a quick scene
I think the build up of Homer's depression in Odyssey seemed more real than in the later seasons and due to slower pacing made you feel his inferiority even more so. Again the episodes you mentioned @Financial Panther I've only seen once so you can correct me if my assumptions are wrong.
the reason he tries to kill himself in hello gutter is stupid. oh no, i'm not famous for bowling a 300 game anymore, i should just kill myself. it's more of a joke than anything.
eternal moonshine is different but i don't think it relates to oddysey
Despite the stupid premise I remember actually liking Gutter. I've always enjoyed Homer/Maggie stories most notably Homer Alone. Moonshine turned out to be a different concept that worked, but I forget the exact circumstance of Homer's attempted suicide.
gutter is a good-ish episode but the suicide part sucked.
in eternal moonshine he thinks his family has left him and he thinks he abused marge, so he goes to jump off a bridge
Sounds like the overly compulsive Homer that we all now know and love.
i remember back in my lurker days when that episode aired, pretty much everyone loved it.
My lurker days lasted the course of nearly ten years. Moonshine has also been mentioned as being overrated, especially in the post classic list thread from a few months ago.
i lurked for a couple years. in the rate and review thread people were spazzin' about it.
People were spazzin' about the return of Jean when I was first visiting here. Look how that turned out...
a lot of the episodes that people spazzed about aren't really that good among rewatch, like Gone Maggie Gone.
