    What are the best episodes after the golden age?

    What are your favorite episodes from season 10 to 31?
    Is there an episode from that era which is your favorite?

    I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions

    I reckon Halloween of Horror (TABF22) is probably hands down one of the best post golden years Simpsons episodes.
    I reckon it uses the character arcs of the classic years like homer not being jerk-ass homer and actually caring for his daughter in a horrific situation. Along side this it uses the new modern look of the show making very appealing scenes like krustys horror night. The episode also merges some classic style jokes with modern features. This makes Halloween of Horror stand out as the golden star in a sky full of darkness.

    My honourable mentions are The Book Job (NABF22), Mansion Family (BABF08), Sex,Pies, and Idiot Scrapes (KABF17), Gone Maggie Gone (LABF04)
    And Treehouse of horror XX (LABF14) for being the last treehouse of horror with 3 good segments all around

    HOMR is the best Scully episode, The Dad Who Knew Too Little is the best Jean episode, and Gone Maggie Gone is the best HD episode. HOMR has beautiful emotional depth to it, which is a rarity for a Scully episode. Lisa/Homer episodes can be really powerful. It takes a while to get going, but it’s amazing when it does.

    The Dad Who Knew Too Little is another Lisa/Homer episode, bur while not as deep or resonating as HOMR, it’s a hilarious episode that still manages to capture the relationship of Lisa and Homer. Nearly every joke hits in this episode. It’s a definite gem.

    Gone Maggie Gone is a very unique episode in its puzzle format, and it’s very entertaining in that too. The episode doesn’t go overboard with the puzzles, nor does it take itself too seriously. It’s a good mystery episode.

    Trilogy of Error was one of the best post-Classic episodes, even at Dead Homers they admitted that.

    First of all, I should note that season 7 is the pinnacle for me. Season 8 and partly 9 belongs in the Golden Era too, although the same
    could not be said of season 10... Anyway, if season 10 is generally considered the transition season marking the end of The Simpsons'
    Golden Era, so be it. From the perspective of the most memorable episodes since the beginning of the show's decline (IMHO), I would
    highlight the following ones (three for each season).

    Season 11:
    "Brother's Little Helper'' is not only a standout episode in general, but also one of the best Bart's episodes in the Post-Classic Era.
    "E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)" " is one of the season's bests.
    "Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder" is probably the best episode with Maggie as 'the forgotten Simpson'.
    Season 12:
    "Lisa the Tree Hugger" is surely the best Lisa's episode in later Simpsons' episodes. Plus, it has strong (based on a true story) plot.
    "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes" is simply memorable social satire episode about the Internet, although it's underestimated.
    "HOMR" is one of the best Homer's episodes in the Post-Classic Era, winning the award for "Outstanding Animated Program".
    Season 13:
    "Treehouse of Horror XII" is one of my all-time favorite 'Treehouse of Horror' episodes.
    "The Blunder Years" is a classical amusing parody with mystery and intrigue.
    "Half-Decent Proposal'' is my all-time favorite Homer & Marge episode. It's the best episode from the 13th season.
    Season 14:
    "Treehouse of Horror XIII" is actually the last Treehouse of Horror to have three separate writers credited for writing three stories,
    so it's totally worth to watch.
    "How I Spent My Strummer Vacation" is one of my top later Homer's episodes; and simply the best from the 14th season.
    This episode is the last to be produced in traditional cel animation, and is the last one written by Mike Scully.
    "Special Edna" is the second best from the 14th season. I’ve liked episodes that focus on the relationship of Skinner and Krabappel.
    Exceptionally, as a fourth episode, I will mention "Three Gays of the Condo". It's The Simpsons' second episode to revolve around
    homosexuality, which won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, just as "Homer's Phobia" did in season 8.

    To be continued...

    @BartArt great choices for season 12.

    "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes" for the simple fact we have Trump.
    "Homr" I don't know what's more funny, "Urinal cake eroding" or "Extended warranty how can I lose."
    "Lisa the Tree Hugger" one word: "Bag-zooka."
    Origi corner taken quickly.

    Does Behind the Laughter count? Because that is one of the best episodes they ever made. Just an incredible premise and they absolutely get the most out of the fourth-wall breaks. Homer's demo version of the show, Lisa writing a sleazy book bashing her family, the lawyers at Thanksgiving. It's almost perfect. Only a very few things don't work, some visual gags which pre-empt how mindlessly wacky the show would later become. But there's still a healthy sparkling of that old Simpsons magic left.

    Also 24 Minutes. They do an incredible job with the concept, and every character feels more in-character than they had for some time at that point. Bart isn't a crybaby Momma's boy, he's a master criminal. Skinner isn't an apathetic simpleton, he's a dedicated educator who's a bit of a square. Even the animation is great. Especially the scene of Martin giving himself a wedgie, full of fake gravitas which just makes the absurdity of it all stand out more.
    Like Behind the Laughter, the needlessly random aspects weaken it, but it's an episode I can watch over and over again. And Kiefer goddamned Sutherland is in it. So it gets a 10/10 for that alone.

    Bart the Mother is probably the best post season 9 episode. It has a real emotional core to it.

    Other good ones include:

    Behind the Laughter: Probably the last episode that can compete with the golden age episodes in terms of quality of the jokes.
    Grift of the Magi: The story is so-so, but it has a lot of great jokes.
    Dont Fear the Roofer: It has a surprisingly interesting storyline.
    Homer Simpson, this is your Wife: Many elements of the episode are mediocre but Ricky Gervais KILLS IT with his character and his dialogue.
    Brick Like Me: A stand out episode in terms of creative storyline.

    I really like HOMR. Yes, it's a Simpsonified Flowers for Algernon but I think it works and the letter he writes Lisa is very powerful. I think it's Lisa the Simpson done right. I also love Barthood, particularly when it focuses on Bart's relationship with Abe which I loved in episodes like Hellfish and Bart the General. Eeny Teeny Maya Moe is my favorite Moe episode and my favorite love interest for him. And Homer's speech at the end is sweet. I like moments when Homer displays empathy and social intelligence. For pure comedy, I like Don't Fear the Roofer, especially Stephen Hawking's explanation for why Bart couldn't see Ray. Also I like anagrams so Ray's name makes me laugh.

    King Leer is my absolute favorite HD-era episode, felt really good for something so late. Some others also:

    S12 - Trilogy of Error
    S14 - The Great Louse Detective (this one is a point of contention though and I see why people don't like it, I just turn into a wild chimp over anything involving Frank Grimes), Moe Baby Blues
    S18 - Moe'N'a Lisa
    S19 - Funeral for a Fiend (this one also seems to be a love it or hate it type thing but I thought it was neat)
    S21 - Moe Letter Blues

    Sorry most of these are Moe episodes there's something wrong with me.
    Hey man
