    An interesting idea for the next list (If people can be bothered with them by now) is bottom 50 Classic era episodes.

    22.Mom and Pop Art -14 - pretty good
    21.HOMR - 18 - pretty good
    20.Brawl in the Family - 164 - like Bart's Inner Child, my offbeat choice
    19.Weekend At Burnsie's - 26 - about right
    18.The Seemingly Never-ending story - 8 - easily the best of season 17
    17.Blame It on Lisa - 128 - well, I liked it
    16.She of Little Faith - 67 - eh
    15.Mayored to the Mob - 13 - about right

    10.24 Minutes - 11 - about right
    9.Behind the Laughter - 10 - about right
    8.Midnight Towboy - 64 - underrated (and I don't say that often about a season 19 ep)
    7.Homer to the Max - 33 - alright
    6.Wild Bart's Can't Be Broken - 12 - not bad
    5.Trilogy of Error - 1 - acceptable

    I still say Scully's episodes are overrepresented, or are at least too high in relation to most of the best early Jean episodes.

    Too High
    The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace
    The Seemingly Neverending Story
    Behind the Laughter
    24 Minutes
    Mom and Pop Art
    HOMR
    Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo
    The President Wore Pearls
    The Computer Wore Menace Shoes
    Maximum Homerdrive
    Homer to the Max
    O Brother, Where Bart Thou?
    E-I-E-I-D'oh
    Treehouse of Horror X
    They Saved Lisa's Brain

    Too Low/Not Present
    I'm Spelling As Fast As I Can
    C.E. D'oh
    The Way We Weren't
    Half-Decent Proposal
    'Tis the Fifteenth Season
    Little Girl in the Big Ten
    I'm With Cupid
    Days of Wine and D'oh'ses

    No, they're not. BTL was okay as a special episode. The other two are overrated, even for this list, Batshit Homer episodes.

    Well, you do have to get into the right mental state before watching those kind of no-plot, no-character episodes. The first thing to do is shut off enough neurons until you're down to about a 75 IQ. Then switch off the part of your frontal cortex that appreciated the intricate and realistic plotting and sharp satire which used to be associated with the show. Then turn on your cerebellar "slapstick and fart-joke cortex" and medullary "zany plot twist" ganglion. Finally, flop back on the couch and feel your ass grow.

    as for the list........the top 4 are terrible.
    No, they're not...They're about the only 4 episodes that are worth watching more than once. The top four might not be classic era quality, but they were solidly entertaining.
    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.

    Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind
    Moe Baby Blues
    Holidays Of Future Passed

    ????????

    these are barely watchable, at best.

    now Behind the Laughter is entertaining.

    I absolutely disagree with:
    23) Little Girl in the Big Ten (worst episode ever)
    34) The Debarted (2nd worst episode ever)
    45) Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington (17th worst episode ever)

    Too many cases of nostalgia from Scully era. A lot of good to mediocre episodes from early Scully era ranked too high. Some of them deserve to be in the list, but not so high. On the other hand fantastic Jean episodes like Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore, I'm Spelling As Fast As I Can or , especially, Thanks God It's Doomsday and C.E.D'oh are too low, but they at least made into the list. I also think Eternal Moonshine, Behind The Laughter and Holidays of Future Passed are overrated and HOMR is awful. Trilogy Of Error is good, but not the best.

    I don't know if I even remembered to include it in MY list, but I'm not seeing Three Gays Of The Condo, which I think it's a fairly good Jean outing and better than some of the Scully ones that were included. Other good Jean era episodes that don't get enough love: Waverly Hills 9-0-1-Doh, The Good, The Sad and The Drugly, The Devil Wears Nada, Diatribe Of A Mad Housewife, All Is Fair In Oven War and even The Food Wife...

    There are others open to discussion but these are the three ones I won't never include.

    30)The Computer Wore Menace Shoes: the third act ruined it.

    18) HOMЯ: Awful premise that couldn't be saved even with the best writing, an the writing is simply acceptable at best.

    16) Skinner's Sense of Snow: Ok, I'm maybe a little more ambivalent towards this one, but its only saving graces may be that it's not very surreal for a Scully episode and has some nice references to Mr. Plow. Other than that it is pretty dull and not very memorable.

    I actually think Maximum Homerdrive is kind of funny even though it's not my ideal Homer's characterization.

    Eeny Teeny Maya Moe is way too low IMO, fantastic episode.
    There's a lot of great episodes in that list, and I'm pretty pleased with the top 10, didn't know The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace was so popular.
    The only one really bothering me is Maximum Homerdrive, It's probably in my bottom 50.

    Well, it was a good run, but overall, this list is pretty depressing.


    Seasons 1-9 - Classic era
    10-12 - Scully era
    13-16 - Silver age
    16.5-17 - The shit abyss
    18-24 - Zombie Simpsons

    that's a pretty 'meh' top 5. Although since it was post-classic you could guarantee i'd complain about something. Also Little Girl in the Big Ten is god awful

    Trilogy of Error? Really?

    I might review that episode in the future considering how well thought it is...but I didn't really care about it that much. Definitely shouldn't be the number 1 IMO.

    Overrated maybe, but it's a fantastic episode.
