    Simpsons Best Episode: Part Two (Homer the Heretic Wins)

    "Homer the Heretic" - God's gift to the Simpsons, just about defining everything that I love about the show. Disappointing that I have to vote against such quality contenders and "Lisa's Substitute" or "Bart Sells His Soul", but it's end game here.

    The top three episodes from here and part one will move to the finals.

    I had to go with Lisa's Substitute here. Probally my favorite episode from season two. Had a lot of strong points, and like you mentioned for your episode.. this one sort of reminded me of everything the show represents.

    so to speak..

    I feel slightly guilty voting for Cape Feare against more episodes with more heart like Lisa's Wedding and Bart Sells His Soul, but ah well. Cape Feare is achingly hilarious, packed with terrific jokes, and works wonders with its tense atmosphere and tight plot.
    Ooh, they have the Internet on computers now!

    This is really tough. Here's my Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? choice:

    Let's see... I'm not a girl, so let's eliminate all episodes focused on Lisa (3) and Maggie (1). The Heartbroke Kid is probably my favorite of Season 16, but season 16 isn't my favorite, so that's not it. Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie is a laugh riot and rings truer now that the show has slightly declined, but it's hard to choose an episode that intends to annoy. Trilogy of Error is in my Top 25 and probably in my Top 5 over the past 10 seasons, but I feel wedded to vote for the earlier "classic" era because that's when the show was most impressive.

    Homer the Heretic is my second favorite episode. It tackles religious matters very well, but then again, so does Bart Sells His Soul, in a stranger way. Those two somewhat cancel each other on that matter.

    Cape Feare is my favorite episode of all time, so it makes sense to vote for that, but it does misspell "fear," so I'm not sure. Hmmm... I think I'll go for that one.
    Favorite Episodes (by Season): Season 1: Krusty Gets Busted, Call of the Simpsons

    I really liked Lisa's Wedding, but I am kind of upset that it did lead to Bart to the Future

    I think Homer the Heretic and Cape Feare are about equally good, but I voted for HTH.

    Close call between the first 6 and to a slightly lesser extent the last 3, but I'll go with 'Substitute'.

    Cape Feare. It's a superb parody, it's enjoyable to sit through, it's harmless fun with extremely violent scenes in there, it's got some of the finest directing and music ever heard and seen on The Simpsons, it's got the finest examples of stereotypical Simpsons humour in there, it's a helluva story with some superb portrayals of characters. No wonder it's my favourite of all time, and I'm sure there's more I could crap on about.

    Lisa's Substitute. Its emotional core always gets me.

    If I am correct the 3 most voted episodes of this list will get to the final with the other 3 of part one, right ?

    EDIT: I've just realized it was written in the first post. I'm an idiot.

    Lisa's Subsitute, Cape Feare, Bart Sells His soul = in my top 10. It's very tough to choose between the 3 as they're all just so brilliant. I'll go for Lisa's Sub - it just emphasises the greatness of the criminally underrated season 2. An absolutely fantastic episode that couldn't have been any better.

    A tribute to Bart Simpson

    You think THAT's bad? What about that time when I was turned into a Tetris block?

    much harder than the other poll. really hard to decide between cape feare, lisa's wedding and homer the heretic. i'll go with homer the heritic though. for me, it is the epitome of your classic simpsons episode.

    edit: i can't believe someone voted for 'moe baby blues' ahead of all those other magnificent classic era episodes. i mean c'mon...

    Lisa's Sub is the one that stands out the most, although Bart Sells His Soul and others are also very strong episodes.

    None of these are my top 10,that's why it was hard for me to choose. I'll vote for Lisa's Wedding,because I watched it yesterday and really enjoyed and laughed all the way through the episode.

    Cape Feare is winning, how delightfully unexpected. I had to vote for it too, it's my favourite episode, hilarious throughout.

    Lisa's Wedding is a delightfully charming episode, wonderfully scripted, wonderfully acted, wonderfully directed, wonderfully animated, even. Not to say that the other episodes aren't wonderful. Indeed, Cape Feare and Homer the Heretic are also very wonderful, but Lisa's Wedding just pips them on that wonderfullness factor, and I'm sure that Cape Feare and Homer the Heretic will easily make it into the final with or without my help.

    Cape Feare.
    Probably my second favorite episode of all times.

    Hilarious jokes, fast-paced, (element of excitement yet still comedy) and what can I say, I'm a Sideshow Bob fan.

    These were all really good episodes though.

    homer the heretic, the second best episode of all time, and the best of the episodes left, this is the best example of simpsons doing religion, great humour, great charectarisations, and a brilliant plot line.

    I really think that both Cape Feare and Lisa's Substitute are a little bit overrated. *gets slapped* I might have voted for Lisa's Wedding, but I have not seen it in years, so... Trilogy of Error for the sympathy vote.

    Definately between Homer the Heretic and Cape Feare. I did a lot of Simpsons soul-searching to figure out which one is truly better in my heart. And in the end just had to go with Homer the Heretic.

    Golly, this is tough. Cape Feare, Lisa's Substitute and Homer The Heretic are all definetely in my Top 10. I'm going to vote for HtH, but... like I said, it's tight.
