    The NHC Top 50 post-classic episodes [RESULTS]

    The results are in. I MUST thank Brad Lascelle for calculating the results while the tournament was going on and providing me with a list of the episodes. (Although it really makes me feel like a cheat) Ties were broken by which appeared in more lists, and if it was still tied (which did happen in one instance), by which episode the highest placement in an individual list.

    Without futher ado:


    TOP 5O POST-CLASSIC EPISODES


    50) The Book Job
    49) Girls Just Want to Have Sums

    SO...

    The episode I can't believe made it is They Saved Lisa's Brain. It's not a very good episode, and I had no idea it was well-liked.

    Some of these are 2.5/5 at best material. Homer to the Max is one of the worst episodes ever as far as I'm concerned. But interesting results to be sure!

    It's a bad episode for sure, and doesn't belong here.

    I was rather surprised by They Saved Lisa's Brain ranking so highly as well. People seem to love it for Stephen Hawking's first appearance.
    Personally, I think it's garbage... but I wasn't willing to sacrifice Girls Just Want to Have Sums or The Book Job to bump some better episodes ahead of it.

    Maximum Homerdrive and Behind the Laughter made my worst 50 list I think, maybe HOMR too..

    Man, you guys are super fast with those results. Y'all make me look bad!

    Good list, a lot of really nice episodes made the list and reading the whole thing makes me feel a little less grouchy about the show running forever and ever.

    I wonder how the Top 24 or 22 or whatever would do as a comparison against a classic era season. As heretic as it sounds, I think that compilation would do pretty okay.

    HOMR wasn't that bad. It narrowly missed being on my list.

    But Maximum Homerdrive sucked.
    Favourite/least favourite by seasons that I own (somewhat stolen from Financial Panther):

    3 - Dog of Death/When Flanders Failed 4 - Lisa's First Word/So it's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5 - Secrets of a Successful Marriage/Bart's Inner Child 6 - And Maggie Makes Three/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7 - Marge Be Not Proud/Bart the Fink 8 - Homer's Phobia/The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase 9 - King of the Hill/Trash of the Titans 10 - Wild Barts Can't Be Broken/Maximum Homerdrive
