Which one was the superior season?
Well, both seasons sucked but the one that sucked the least, obviously S22.
The Falcon and the D'ohman (4.5/10) Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts (4.0/10) Treehouse of Horror XXII (1.0/10) Replacable You (3.5/10) The Food Wife (4.0/10) The Book Job (8.0/10) The Man in the Blue Flannel Pants (4.0/10) The Ten-Per-Cent Solution (4.5/10) Holidays of Future Passed (8.5/10) Politically Inept, With Homer Simpson (3.5/10) The D'oh-cial Network (2.5/10) Moe Goes From Rags to Riches (1.5/10) The Daughter Also Rises (5.0/10) At Long Last Leave (2.5/10) Exit Through the Kwik-E-Mart (1.0/10) How I Wet Your Mother (4.0/10) Them, Robot (3.0/10) Beware My Cheating Bart (5.0/10) A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again (3.0/10) The Spy Who Learned Me (3.5/10) Ned 'N' Edna's Blend (5.5/10) Lisa Goes Gaga (1.0/10)
Season 22 was extreamly average while 23 ranged from being below average to bad (With only a few good episodes) so I'd probably go with season 22 (Although both are in my bottom three seasons)
this is like picking a favourite method of torture
This is the fight for the spoon!
Season 22 2.5/10
Season 23 - 2.8/10
Season 23 is better by a mile.
Top 10 Episodes:
- Bart of Darkness
- Bart Sells his Soul
- Bart vs. Thanksgiving
- Stark Raving Dad
- Separate Vocations
- Lisa on Ice
- Cape Feare
- Milhouse Dosen't Live Here Any More
- Kill The Alligator and Run - Seriously.
- Treehouse of Horror V
- Das Bus
I think the show hit absolute rock bottom with season 22 and stayed there with season 23, so my answer is they are about the same.
yeah what's the point in this thread. the two are virtually indistinguishable from each other.
Season 22, for sure. I found that season to be somewhat enjoyable and probably the best season of the latter-day Jean era (though that's not really saying much, since it was still awful).
Apart from 2 of the best episodes we've seen in years, season 23 was a horrible season and one of their definite worst.

22. It had many more episodes that I'd consider above-average, and less that I'd consider flops.

Season 22 was mediocre throughout, nothing exceptional but a lot of sucky moments, Season 23, although having some of the worst episodes ever also had some half decent episodes, making it marginally better.
They both stank. S23 had Holidays of Future Passed and that was better than anything from both Seasons. Otherwise, they're both the mind numbingly, weak as water.
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.
I agree with the person who said that season 23's highs were better than season 22's highs, but the lows were much lower.
I can't really think of any season 22 episodes that I thought were completely terrible, but I can't think of any that I thought were amazing either. Most of it was C quality at best.

Season 23 had "Holidays of Future Passed," but Season 22 had "Homer the Father" AND "Homer Scissorhands." It wins, easily.
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...22 i guess.
This is like asking what's better: Season 10 or Season 11?
11 beats 10. But that's not what this thread is asking.
I found Season 23 to be a very enjoyable experience, having many great episodes. As time goes by, I don't think we'll ever have such a season again.
Never since Season 11 have I seen such a wonderful combination of hilarity, emotion, and character development.
Season 22 was also great and awesome, but it was just harder to sit through. Mainly because I didn't have the wonderful feeling of jokes getting thrown at me every millisecond.
I have no complaints about Season 23 whatsoever. If I ever could recommend a season for a new watcher, I would always recommend Season 23.
What else can I say?
Season 23: 1989/10
If it was between two good seasons, I'd go for the one that I gave higher average ratings, which would probably be Season 22.
But when seasons are as indistinguishably crap as the last two, I have to go for the one with something, anything that stands out as good, and Season 23 has Holidays of Future Passed. So S23 it is.
Good episodes from season 22
Lisa Simpson, This Isnt Your Life
The Fight Before Christmas (mostly the last segment)
The Blue and the Gray
A Mid Summers Night Dream
The Ned Liest Catch
And maybe Homer The Father, which is nothing special to me, but it's ok.
Good episodes from season 23
The Food Wife
The Book Job
The Man in the Blue Flannel Pants
Holidays Of Future Passed
At Long Last Leave
Exit Through The Kwik-E- Mart
How I Wet Your Mother
A Totally Fun Thing Bart Will Never Do Again (mostly the first two acts)
Ned N Edna Blend
I guess season 23 is better.
Incidentally I don't mean all those episodes were great or anything. In fact I barely remember some of them. But I remember having a good feeling after watching them.
On the other hand some of the episodes not included weren't too bad. The Daughter Also Rises or Beware My Cheating Bart are fairly decent outings, but they didn't feel right to me, as if they weren't using the premises to its full potential and the stories were written by numbers. The Great Simpsina wasn't bad but I don't feel like rewatching it any time soon, something about the plot feels too contrived.
Also, about season 23 having more "bad" episodes than season 22 I would say they're kind of tied. Season 22 had Elementary School Musical, The Scorpion's Tale, The Fool Monty (which is mixed but mostly bad), Love is a Many Strangled Thing, Real Housewifes of Fat Tony and even Donnie Fatso, which is a good episode until the ending, but the ending is completely terrible.

My Simpsons homage!
I guess everybody's got a right to like what they like; I personally found The Book Job and Holidays of Future Passed to be the only good episodes of Season 23, the rest being mediocre to below average to terrible with the below average to terrible outweighing the mediocre/good. Below average and terrible episodes a Simpsons season does not make.
Do you think the season 22 episodes I mentioned in the last paragraph were better than the "below average" episodes in season 23?
Incidentally a funny fact to me is that the first episode of season 22 and the last one of season 23 have simmilarities: both are celebrity based episodes that shoe-horned a half baked Lisa's conflict and both were written by Tim Long , but Elementary School Musical was a lot more boring than Lisa Goes Gaga, even if Elementary School Musical had Flight Of Conchords guys who should be much better guest stars than Gaga. But it also had Glee, which I'm not a fan of.
The second episodes of both seasons (Loan A-Lisa and Bart Stops To Smell The Roosevelts) are also of very simmilar quaility to me. Decent outings but fairly unmemorable.

The both aren't very good and In don't o the average of season 22 yet but just like this, I think that the season 23 is better.

I enjoyed Season 23 much more than Season 22 by a LARGE margin. I enjoyed The Book Job, Holidays of Future Passed, At Long Last Leave, Beware My Cheating Bart, How I Wet Your Mother, The D'ohcial Network, Ned N' Edna's Blend Agenda, and Them Robot. The only two in season 22 I enjoyed was How Munched was that birdie in the window and Homer Scissorhands.
