    The Netherlands, because I'd like to see my own country being parodied. I wonder if they will get the Dutch accents right, the only time they had a character speak actual Dutch on the show was by Carice Van Houten.

    I think that "The Simpsons are going to" is my least favorite set of episodes along with non-horror trilogies. If they are going another of these, I am indifferent to the place as long as the writing is good. I thought that The Simpsons had nothing to do in Costa Rica and look, Livin' La Pura Vida it turned out to be the best episode of its kind in the HD era because of the dynamics of the characters, the jokes, and because Costa Rica was a resource not the blank of the jokes of nonsensical criticisms. It provides good jokes like the monkeys or the Pura Vida catchphrase, but the story could have happened in every other place and that's what makes a traveling episode better IMO, without the family going to popular places, meeting famous people, and that type of stuff.

    Knowing modern Simpsons they would probabaly do a lot of lame jokes about weed or the red district or stuff like that.

    That's why this kind of episodes are usually pretty mediocre. It allows the writers to be extra lazy and just make lame observations about other countries and make the Simpsons react to that.
    Even Bart vs Australia which is one of the best travel episodes is not that good for classic era standards.

    Personally speaking, I am in favour of the "The Simpsons are going to..." Episodes. They can be bad, but only if the writers don't handle the episode in the way it is needed.

    I would for them to visit another country, one that they haven't visited in their 30+ year old run. It doesn't have to be my country necessarily, but it would be interesting to see an episode set in Greece or a Treehouse Of Horror segment set in Ancient Greece. There are so many good opportunities for great jokes (Homer trying to communicate with other people, Marge trying to understand the traditions, Lisa exploring the educative part of the land etc.).

    I would also be interested in an episode set in Italy or Germany. It sounds something that would be pretty interesting for all the characters and maybe it would result in some good satire and comedy (Despite the fact that they are most likely to use all the same racist jokes about Germans being a little overweight, Italians loving pizza and spaghetti, Greeks and their traditions etc.).

    Anyway, I would be really interested in a "The Simpsons are going to..." episode, as long as it's written well and doesn't try to actively destroy the story, characters, jokes etc.

    The Simpsons season ratings:
    1 > 2 > 4 > 7 > 3 > 6 > 8 > 5 > 27 > 21 > 9 > 20 > 25 > 17 > 29 > 10 > 12 > 15 > 26 > 24 > 13 > 18 > 14 > 19 > 28 > 16 > 30 > 23 > 11 > 22

    I think that thoughts may differ, because so many people, so many opinions.

    I agree that it really doesn't matter where the family goes as long as the episodes are well-written (and also not just like commercials for the country, with the family reacting to what they see and whatnot. Also less lazy international stereotyping). If there's more travel episodes in the making, I would like them to seem them go to major countries they haven't been to yet, such as maybe Spain, Germany, Norway, Sweden & Russia (also, a trip to Vietnam along with Principal Skinner could be a neat episode if handled well).

    maybe they should go somewhere that would be the last thing people would think of a "Simpsons are going to..." episode, heck they could even make up a country(Inspector Gadget did a couple of made up countries, Pianostan, Alpacastan, Hupla and Dupla, etc)....the Siimpsons did once in the comics, Bosqueverde where they stayed as the guests of a dictator after winning a duff beer contest
