    Homer the Heretic: 3
    Mr. Plow: 2

    Both amazing episodes but Homer The Heretic has more memorable moments.

    The Compuer Wore Menace Shoes isn't that good, but I can at least appreciate the third act for its downright bizarreness. It feels more like it was deliberately absurd, as opposed to ridiculous due to bad writing, which is what most bad Scully episodes feel like. Speaking of which, New Kids on the Blecch is one of the worst written episodes of the series, not to mention all the boy band stuff is unbearable and really dated by now.

    The Computer Wore Menace Shoes: 5
    New Kids on the Blecch: 1

    Homer the Heretic is fantastic, but I just love Mr. Plow for its setting and how the setting is fully integrated into the plot. Homer the Heretic also has some great winter atmosphere, but it's not the focus of the episode. I just love the winter. I mean, I don't like every episode set in the winter, but Mr. Plow is a great episode on top of that. And it's always a plus; there's not much that can put me in a good mood like the winter can and an episode that can put me in a good mood just because of its setting is going to leave me with a good impression, assuming there's nothing in it to ruin that. Homer the Heretic has some of that too, but not as much.

    Homer the Heretic: 4
    Mr. Plow: 3

    I think Heretic goes deeper into Homer's character than Mr. Plow does with Homer/Barney. Also Fight Before Christmas sucks so default win for Kill Gil.

    Homer the Heretic: 6
    Mr. Plow: 4

    Kill Gil, Vols. I & II: 2

    The Fight Before Christmas is pretty terrible but it´s not as bad as Kill Gil.

    Mr. Spritz is overly ridiculous and doesn't really make a lot of sense, while Today I'm a Clown is offensively boring.

    Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington: 2
    Today I Am a Clown: 1

    Ugh, this match is a real slog. Anyway, Today I Am a Clown is such a horrendously boring episode. Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington has some atrocious satire and no really funny jokes, but re-watching the episode I remembered how much I loved the plot (other than the stupid plane stuff). I really like The Guy Who Looks Like Walter Mondale’s plan for getting the bill passed.

    Darn, I had a perfectly amazing match-up planned. Oh well, fortunately this will move more quickly since we have two classic era episodes here.

    Peppers can also give matches you know.

    While Homer the Smithers has impeccable humor, Homer the Great has a much more interesting plot with an intriguing atmosphere and excellent humor too, Simpsons' absurdism at its peak.

    Homer the Great: 2
    Homer the Smithers: 0

    Both amazing Swartzwelder's classics anyway.

    Besides the farfetched way Bobo gets into the Simpsons' house Rosebud is an absolutly fantastic episode. Homer at the Bat isn't that great for me.

    Homer at the Bat: 0
    Rosebud: 1
