  2. My Simpsons Ultimate Episode Ratings and Rankings: Season 16, Part 4 (Conclusion)

    18.)A Star is Torn - 3.5/5
    19.)She Used to Be My Girl - 2.5/5
    20.)Pranksta Rap - 2.5/5
    21.)Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass - 2/5

    The bottom four, and naturally we start to fall into the pitfalls that all Jean Era episodes must try and avoid: jerkass Homer, boring or overdone storylines, a plethora of pointless guest stars, or just bad jokes. A Star is Torn isn't a bad episode. I'd say it is just about average, and perhaps slightly below in the classic era. As an ...

    15.)The Seven-Beer Snitch - 4/5
    16.)Goo Goo Gai Pan - 4/5
    17.)All's Fair in Oven War - 4/5

    The next six episodes of the season all receive the well above average grade of a 4/5. Because of this, like with my 5/5s, they were very difficult to rank amongst themselves. It should firstly be noted that all of these episodes are solid, and that not ...

    6.)The Heartbroke Kid - 5/5
    7.)Thank God, It's Doomsday - 5/5
    8.)Home Away From Homer - 5/5
    9.)Midnight Rx - 5/5
    10.)Sleeping With the Enemy - 4.5/5
    11.)Future-Drama - 4.5/5

    Three of the episodes here all have very similar reasons as to why I liked them enough to give them perfect grades: They all have at least a hint of sharp satire, but at the same time manage to be absolutely hilarious. The Heartbroke Kid has several great gags including ...

  5. My Simpsons Ultimate Episode Ratings and Rankings: Season 16, Part 1

    So now we move onward to Season 16 of the series, which originally aired from November of 2004 until May of 2005. This means that I was a Junior in High School when this season originally aired. That also means that all of these episodes are now over 6 years old. This was Al Jean's fourth year as showrunner by himself. Until that point, only Mike Scully had been showrunner for that many years and considering the quality of his episodes people were, understandably, concerned that Jean might be overstaying ...
