    According to my local cinema's management team for trivia nights, Seasons 10 and 11 are part of the "classic" era.

    But there were definitely classic moments. And at times, it could be really funny.
    Season 9 is semi-classic at best.

    Season 10 is still good and has a lot of funny episodes but I think that's where the tone changed significantly. Season 9 still has a similar feel to me as earlier seasons.
    You're a dolt with the IQ of a peabrain that probably loves lowbrow sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Seinfeld to not grasp the biting satire and wit of the classic 65 (Rugrats).

    I appreciate that my perspective is probably different from somebody who actually watched the show in the intended order but to me 9 and 10 don't feel that different --- which isn't an insult to either of them. Both of them have some great outings (The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson, King of the Hill, Lisa Gets An A, Wild Barts Can't Be Broken) and some not-so-great (The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons, Bart Carny, When You Dish Upon a Star, Make Room for Lisa). I don't blame anyone for declaring the classic era ends at s8 since it's tidier, but I think it was a pretty gradual thing.

    I hate season 10, especially kidney trouble. Homer is a jerkass but they can't just take his kidney while he's unconscious, he needs to consent. Hibbert could be sued. I also hate the dark ending joke where Homer squeezes Bart's kidney.

    I actually think the ending is one of the few good parts about Kidney Trouble. I don’t really take it seriously.

    It's transitional as others mentioned, some episodes like Lisa gets an a and Mayored to the mob feel more season 9-ish or semi-classic, but others like Monty can't buy me love and Dish upon a star feel more season 11-ish or modern.

    I can kinda see why some people prefer 11-12 over 10 though. S11-12 have better animation and is less stuck in the mud than season 10. By that point it's more of a Family Guy Lite though.

    To be honest I don't consider "golden age" and "classic era" as the same. Basically, I think the golden age was seasons 2-the first 4 episodes of Season 10 but the classic era was every episode before the show went digital. Seasons 14-16 are good, but the switch to digital animation basically started a new era.
    Best and Worst Episode per Season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish/Bart's Dog Gets an 'F' 3: Bart the Murderer/Saturdays of Thunder 4: Homer the Heretic/So Its Come To This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Lady Bouvier's Lover 6: Homie the Clown/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Raging Abe Simpson and his Grumbling Grandson in " The Curse of the Flying Hellfish"/Homerpalooza 8: The Springfield Files/The Old Man and the Lisa 9: The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson/Miracle on Evergreen Terrace 10: Mayored to the Mob/Homer Simpson in: Kidney Trouble 11: Grift of the Magi/Eight Misbehavin' 12: Trilogy of Error/I'm Goin' to Praiseland 13: The Blunder Years/The Lastest Gun in the West 14: Moe Baby Blues/The Strong Arms of the Ma 15: Fraudcast News/Co-Dependent's Day 16: The Heartbroke Kid/Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass 17: The Seemingly Never-Ending Story/The Bonfire of the Manatees 18: The Mook, The Chef, The Wife, and Her Homer/The Boys of Bummer 19: Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind/Husbands and Knives 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Lisa the Drama Queen 21: The Squirt and the Whale/The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fight Before Christmas 23: The Book Job/Lisa Goes Gaga 24: The Saga of Carl/Love is a Many-Splintered Thing 25: Brick Like Me/What to Expect When Bart's Expecting 26: Sky Police/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Barthood/Every Man's Dream 28: 22 for 30/The Caper Chase 29: Flanders' Ladder/Singin' in the Lane 30: Woo-hoo Dunnit?/I Want You (She's So Heavy)

    The funny thing is that even season 9 is now being rejected. I remember 5 years ago most fans still considered it classic era, albeit in transition.

    But now recently, with Youtube essays by Entertain the Elk and Super Eyepatch Wolf about the Simpsons' decline getting popular, the hate for Principal and the Pauper has been re-ignited (seems like it died down for a while), and now I've seen a lot of casual fans seemingly reject s9 as classic solely because of that one episode (unfair imo). Heck, in the past two years I've seen more hate for PatP than even Kill the Alligator and Run.

    Some people view 8 as the half-classic transitional season now. Which seems mad to me.

    Yeah like everyone used to say 1-8 was the firm classic era, but now after those Youtube essays came out more "race to the bottom"/purity spiral fans are poppjng up saying things like "The show was already a wretched shitfest by season 7" or something, lol. Like the show's been meh for so long that now fans are trying to convince themselves that less and less of it was ever actually good.

    i feel the opposite is true, as time goes on, people are becoming more forgiving to the scully years. it's one thing to believe the decline wasn't becoming apparent in season 8 or 9 but 10?? if ten is in the classic era then wouldn't you not also believe the classic era never ended at all?

    On NHC, people are more forgiving towards the Scully era, but other parts of the fanbase seem to be tightening their belts on it. Which is funny since this situation was the opposite 15 years ago.
