    Still, you have to admit it's pretty hard to hold back your tears when Marge cooks the laughter and Homer is devastated at it being dead. When I was little, that scene shocked me even more since I was more active in animal rights, even though I'm still a vegetarian.

    I found the Pinchy subplot to be for comedic effect more than anything. Maybe this means I don't have a soul, but I was laughing when Homer was mourning the lobster while eating it.

    EDIT: It's kind of like the Snowball subplot of I, (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot in that even though you see a character die and a sad Simpson, it's not trying to be emotional.

    Don't take me wrong, I laughed very hard at that scene, but also found it really sad.

    Bart Gets an "F": 2
    Lisa Gets an "A": 2

    Both pretty great episodes but "Bart Gets an F" is a classic.

    You know a better match up could have been Bart gets and F vs Barts Dog gets an F

    That would have been too easy. I like match-ups that are challenging, like the two babysitter-episodes, where I loved both of them really much.

    I'd say for me personally that would be a much harder choice.

    I was considering that for a sec but I found this match-up to be more interesting, and is atleast more on par with each othe with the story.

    These episodes are basically the opposites of each other, Bart gets a low grade and feels bad, Lisa gets a good grade and feels bad. Bart Gets an ''F'' is more emotional while Lisa Gets an ''A'' is really funny.
    Episodes rated best and worst from each season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: The Way We Was/Bart's Dog Gets an F 3: Colonel Homer/Dog of Death 4: Marge vs. The Monorail/So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Bart Gets An Elephant 6: Treehouse of Horror V/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Mother Simpson/Homerpalooza 8: You Only Move Twice/The Canine Mutiny 9: Lisa's Sax/The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons 10: Lisa Gets an A/Sunday Cruddy Sunday 11: Behind The Laughter/Beyond Blunderdome 12: Trilogy of Error/The Computer Wore Menace Shoes 13: I Am Furious Yellow/Homer the Moe 14: The Dad Who Knew Too Little/Large Marge 15: The Way We Weren't/Diatribe of a Mad Housewife 16: Thank God Its Doomsday/Mommie Beerest 17: Marge's Son Poisoning/Bonfire of the Manatees 18: Marge Gamer/Revenge is Best Served Three Times 19: Treehouse of Horror XVIII/That 90's Show 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Coming To Homerica 21: O Brother, Where Bart thou?/The Devil Wears Nada 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fool Monty 23: Holidays of Future Passed/Moe Goes From Rags To Riches 24: Adventures In Baby-Getting/Whiskey Business 25: Brick Like Me/White Christmas Blues 26: Bart's New Friend/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Halloween of Horror/Every Man's Dream 28: There Will Be Buds/Moho House 29: Gone Boy/Throw Grampa from the Dane

    We can always do Bart Gets an "F" vs. Bart's Dog Gets an "F" next. Someone should also make Bart's Dog Gets an "F" vs. Dog of Death.

    I thought we weren't doing joke matches, though.

    Really? That's interesting, people often dismiss Bart's Dog Get an "F" as being one of the least entertaining classic era-episodes.
    Personally I don't agree with them, but I still think Bart Gets an "F" is better. I never knew Martin could be so hilarious!

    It'll get boring if we keep using the same episodes, I'd rather see other interesting match-ups.

    This is a very easy choice for me, as it would be if it was Bart Gets an "F" vs. Bart's Dog Gets an "F."

    Bart Gets an "F": 3

    Tough one, but for me, relationship episodes work better when they're done on Marge's side. It probably won't be the popular opinion, but I'll pick Life on the Fast Lane.

    Life on the Fast Lane is good but not really spectacular, and The Last Temptation of Homer is a great episode. They both handled the temptation of an extramarital affair well, but The Last Temptation of Homer manages to be convincing while also hilarious.

    I like "The Last Temptation Of Homer", but I think it's overrated.
    You can't beat the ever-so-great Jaques though, so I'll go with "Life On The Fast Lane".

    Life on the Fast Lane isn't that special, it didn't even make much sense why Marge would go back to Homer. The Last Temptation of Homer is way better and funnier, and Mindy is a much better character than Jaques.

    Fast Lane is a great episode but it´s lacking in humor and they didin´t explain poperly why Marge went back to Homer. The Last Temptation Of Homer manages to handle emotion just as well while being hilarious at the same time.

    Both terrific episodes but i find A Star Is Burns ever-so-slightly funnier. (It used to be one of my favorite episodes actually)

    Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie: 1
    A Star Is Burns: 1

    As a movie fan, I find both episodes very fun to watch.
    Nothing wrong with I&S:TM, but I always find it so uncomfortable to watch it almost borders on angst rather than comedy. You can really feel Bart's pain.
    On the other hand, it's still less flawed. Jay Sherman is just a really boring character.
