    A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again only narrowly missed out on my top 5, but will almost certainly make my top 10. That's a magnificent episode about mindfulness with one of the best endings to a post-classic episode ever.

    To be fair, I don't dislike it as much as I did before as I've warmed up to it a little, but I still cannot get into that goofy, over the top & mean spirited third act with the post-apocalyptic cruise world after two weeks, Bart ignoring everyone's misery with no guilt and the family being blamed for his prank and dumped to die in Antarctica (which is topped with Marge physically hurting her son by hurling a giant snowball at the back of his head out of vengeful spite), even with that sort of heartwarming capper. It just became too Scullyish for my taste but is overall an decent episode.

    Tell you what... if Halloween of Horror remains on all lists before the submission cutoff deadline, I'll throw it back onto my list at Number 20 so the stat can live.

    Looking at all the lists posted so far, I'm thoroughly surprised that 'Labor Pains' has only been in one of them. It was part of my recent rewatch and I found it to be just a really good, fun and a bit heartfelt story and deserve to be on any toplist. I'd say it's an overlooked gem.

    I have mix feelings with Labor Pains. I absolutely love the main plot. It's tender, original, and everything worked fine. But Lisa's plot is really bad. If wasn't for B-plot, I'd give it a 5/5 and it would have serious chances to be in my list. But that was not the case.

    I liked Lisa's plot about the cheerleaders just fine. It was nothing great but it worked for me and was a decent complement to the great main story (and it didn't hurt the episode to me). I don't think the episode makes it onto the top of my list but if it was still 30 it would likely be on it.

    I think Labor Pains might be #31 on my list. I think the subplot is meh, but they barely used it. The main plot was really good in my opinion

    Two nice choices for me. Both episodes are under-apreciated. I always liked YOLO. It has a touching story around Homer and it was correctly executed. Gal of Constant Surrow did a great work with its guest star and build a good story for her. Nice to see some recognize for those episodes.

    Gal of Constant Sorrow was decent but Hettie's slurred speech annoyed me. YOLO is an episode I don't get the hate for, it has a great story, good emotion, and Eduardo is a great character. People seem to hate it just because it is named after a modern catchphrase

    Nobody hates YOLO because of its title; it’s just not an interesting episode for most. I don’t think anyone hates it, though.

    Nothing wrong with enjoying absurdist humor. You have one of the best examples of it from the modern era immediately preceding it in Homer Goes to Prep School. That episode is just plain dumb and silly in all the best ways.

    Anne Hathaway voice performance was excellent and she deserved the Emmy Award for her performance. The problem I found was putting these episodes in order; however, I have alway enjoyed this episode. Also, don't you think its actually nice to see Lisa act like a little girl?

    Yeah, it is always nice to see Lisa act her age. I think the episode is really forgettable, but it’s a nice part of it.

    List updated. Unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to find the time to watch the last 14 episodes of season 30 before the deadline so will have to leave those out of contention.

    This list can not be real. But anyway, The Great Phatsby is counted once, so you should join both parts in a place and add another episode in your list.

    The list doesn't look that bad to me, even with those unpopular choices and considering I don't agree with a lot of them.

    Finally done with my list (and so near the deadline too). It took quite a while to get it together in a way that I feel is suitable for me but now I feel satisfied with it and it has been interesting as well as fun.

    Finding the more or less perfect HD era top list has been kinda tricky, especially as I find a majority of HD epsodes be average at around 3/5 and having to recall the episodes as I've only seen most of them once, though now after having done some rewatching of the episodes I find the most good and memorable I've arranged/rearranged them and compiled an approximate list of those I’ve enjoyed the most. It’s been complicated (especially as I’ve been torn on the order of the Top 4 or 5) but I feel content with it as it appears now.

    The honorable mentions some that got left out once the list shrunk from 30 to 20: Hardly Kirk-ing, Holidays Of Future Passed, Sky Police, Springfield Splendor, Gone Maggie Gone, O Brother Where Bart Thou? & Treehouse Of Horror XXVIII.

    Now on to the list:

    20. Flanders' Ladder
    19. Brick Like Me
    18. Fland Canyon
    17. The War Of Art
    16. Daddicus Finch
    15. Girl's In The Band
    14. The Town
    13. Gone Boy
    12. The Marge-ian Chronicles
    11. The Great Simpsina
    10. To Surveil With Love
    9. There Will Be Buds
    8. Eeny Teeny Maya Moe
    7. Dangers On A Train
    6. Barthood
    5. The Book Job
    4. Halloween Of Horror
    3. King Leer
    2. Homer Scissorhands
    1. Steal This Episode

    Looking forward to it, maybe especially as my favorite part of this is your episode-by-episode breakdown with the tallies.

    Talked about my list, I guess ? I agree, it's a pretty overlooked episode and that was the hard part of shrieking my list to 20 picks, I had to let this one go, because it was among the episodes I ranked 21 to 30.

    Yes, yours was the only one where I saw it. I too had to let go of a lot of solid episodes as they ended up between 21 and 30 but I still feel I managed to condense the list to a good degree with only 20 spots.
