    The Simpsons 'Guess the Consensus' Quiz

    Shamelessly stolen from another board I go on, blame them if you don't like the title.

    If there's one thing this board was born out of, it's arguing about The Simpsons. Were Jean and Reiss better than Oakley and Weinstein? Is Cape Feare or LETS the best gagfest? When did the show become unwatchable garbage? And so on and so forth.

    But like it or not, a general consensus has been reached on most episodes of the show's illustrious history, and the aim of this game is to see who has their finger on the pulse of the NHC and can guess that consensus the most effectively!

    The Rules
    I will provide a list of 10 randomly chosen Simpsons episodes. Every player sends in their own personal rating of that episode out of ten, and a prediction of what it's average rating will be.

    Example
    [Family Member] the [Adjective]
    My Rating: 8/10 My Predicted Consensus: 6/10

    Whole number guesses only, please. Averages will be rounded to the nearest whole number for determining points.

    Please don't post your ratings and guesses in the thread, but message them to me. Otherwise people can work out averages and spoil the game. Do post here to say you're in, though!


    Players will get a point for correctly predicting the consensus, and 3 points in the unlikely event that you're the only one who correctly predicts the consensus.

    Assuming anyone decides to play this I'll do a minimum of 5 rounds, and possibly extend it if there's a lot of interest.

    Have fun!

    And now for the results!

    1. Treehouse of Horror II
    Consensus Ranking: 7.89 (rounded up to an 8)
    deadname - 8
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 8
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 8
    Sandurt - 8
    Szyslak100 - 8
    tyler - 8

    Financial Panther - 7
    goodfella - 7
    Trab Pu Ckip - 7

    A solid start, with over half our competitors picking up an early point!

    2. Cape Feare
    Consensus Ranking: 9.56
    Financial Panther - 10
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 10
    Sandurt - 10
    Szyslak100 - 10
    Trab Pu Ckip - 10
    tyler - 10

    deadname - 9
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 9
    goodfella - 9

    so far so good for most of you!

    3. Burns' Heir
    Consensus Ranking: 8.78
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 9
    Sandurt - 9
    Trab Pu Kcip -9

    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 10
    deadname - 8
    goodfella - 8
    Szyslak100 - 8
    tyler - 8
    Financial Panther - 7

    This one tripped up a few more of our players, and Sandurt now stands alone on a perfect 3/3, but with most of the rest of the field right behind him on 2. Poor goodfella however, is yet to score.

    4. Lemon of Troy
    Consensus Ranking: 9.11
    goodfella - 9
    Sandurt - 9
    Szyslak100 - 9
    Trab Pu Kcip - 9
    tyler - 9

    deadname - 10
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 10
    Financial Panther - 8
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 8

    Sandurt cannot be stopped! Though to be fair, over half of you got this one. Maybe the classic era is too easy to predict, so it's a good job we're marching on to Scully episodes from here!

    5. Behind the Laughter
    Consensus Ranking: 7.44
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 7
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 10
    deadname - 9
    Trab Pu Kcip - 9
    Financial Panther - 8
    goodfella - 8
    Sandurt - 8
    Szyslak100 - 8
    tyler - 8

    To the suprise of nobody, this was a much more contrversial episode in terms of personal scores than anything before it, though it still lands on a respectable average. Frightened Inmate takes the first 3 points of the competition for being the only one to successfully guess how you rated it.

    The Scores at the Halfway Point
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 5
    Sandurt - 4
    Szyslak100 - 3
    Trab Pu Ckip - 3
    tyler - 3

    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 2
    deadname - 1
    Financial Panther - 1
    goodfella - 1

    By relatively popular demand, it's the second half of the scores. Without wanting to give too much away, it's safe to say that as we leave the classic era and move into Scully/Jean. there's gonna be fewer 9's and 10's!

    6. Simpson Safari
    Consensus Ranking: 3.78 (rounded up to 4)
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 4
    goodfella - 6
    Szyslak100 - 5
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 3
    deadname - 3
    Financial Panther - 2
    Sandurt - 2
    Trap Pu Kcip - 2
    tyler - 2

    It, uh, shouldn't come as much surprise that this was the lowest ranked episode so far by a margin. It certainly didn't surprise our players, who uniformly predicted this would be average or a stinker. In fact, most of you have predicted this one comes in too low! Credit to OldSchoolerSimpsons, the only one to predict a 4/10 and now the owner of 3 precious points!

    7. Helter Shelter
    Consensus Ranking: 4.11
    tyler - 4
    deadname - 6
    goodfella - 5
    Financial Panther - 3
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 3
    Sandurt - 3
    Szyslak100 - 3
    Trab Pu Kcip - 3

    Only one person ranked this above a 5/10, and that alone stopped it from immediately dethroning Simpson Safari as the lowest ranked episode thus far! Once again though, only one person gets their prediction right, so a hearty congratulations and 3 points to tyler! I hope this isn't a thing with all the post-classic episodes...

    8. Bart Has Two Mommies
    Consensus Ranking: 4.625
    Financial Panther - 5
    goodfella - 5
    Trab Pu Kcip - 5
    tyler - 5

    deadname - 7
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 7
    Sandurt - 7
    Szyslak100 - 6
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 4

    Fun fact, I don't remember a single thing about this episode. Doesn't sound like i'm missing out on much though. A few of you seem to think the board would remember this more fondly than they have, but we're finally back to more than one person getting the correct answer!

    9. Please Homer, Don't Hammer 'Em
    Consensus Ranking: 4.625
    Financial Panther - 5
    Sandurt - 5
    tyler - 5

    deadname - 6
    goodfella - 6
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 6
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 4
    Szyslak100 - 4
    Trap Pu Kcip - 4

    Two consecutive episodes with the same ranking, what are the odds! This time however, fewer of you got it right, though at least everyone was literally only 1 away either way. Mildly interesting moment as Sandurt picks up his first points since the perfect streak ended also!

    10. Holidays of Future Passed
    Consensus Ranking: 6.78
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 9
    deadname - 8
    Financial Panther - 8
    Sandurt - 8
    Szyslak100 - 8
    Trab Pu Kcip - 8
    tyler - 8
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 6
    goodfella - 4

    This one split opinion more than I expected, but like Behind the Laughter ends up on a respectable score at least because of it. Unfortunately, in a first for this game, it was a respectable score nobody guessed! 0 points for anyone! I'm not upset, i'm just disappointed.

    Well, we know the final round did nothing to the scores, but what about everything before it?
    Round 1 Final Scores!
    tyler - 8
    Frightened Inmate No. 2 - 5
    OldSchoolerSimpsons - 5
    Sandurt - 5

    Trab Pu Kcip - 4
    Financial Panther - 3

    Nice! I did pretty good for the first round. Fell off during the second round a bit. Seemed like people are a lot meaner to the post-classic episodes than I thought will note that in my head. This was fun as hell most entertaining thing I saw today. Hopefully you will continue doing these they were intense a little bit. If you know when will Round 2 happen?

    It's not a surprise that I was unable to win points in the post-classic era. My feelings are too different from the average even to foresee a consensus. But seriously, only 6.78 for Holidays of Future Passed? I thought I was being pessimistic with an 8/10 for the consensus!
