    Very unpopular opinions.

    I like That '90s Show. It's like, one of the only episodes from Al Jean's era I can tolerate to watch.

    People usually joke on the first day of April, not October.

    When you get over the initial canonical issues, it really is a wonderfully mediocre episode. Great songs, too, something the show doesn't know how to do anymore. Just their band title alone, "Sadgasm", almost makes up for names like "Funtendo Zii".

    The Simpsons has never really been about building a canon. If you insist on having some sort of canonized version of events, then it would make just as much sense to say that episodes that do not follow canon take place as Elseworlds or What If stories.

    Interestingly, the one canonical thing that The Simpsons has maintained in every episode is the age of all of their characters, yet, people want this to change. Personally, I think when it comes to entertainment people would be a lot happier if they just stuck with their own "head canon" version of events.

    I'm pretty forgiving with newer episodes, but I draw the line at retroactively changing some of the most important and beloved Simpsons lore. It may have been good on its own, but it doesn't hold a candle to that which it overturned.

    You're damn right with the unpopular part.

    Kirk Van Houten is a really underlooked character that I can relate to. Is that unpopular a thought?

    Unpopular Though Eh?
    I think the Cleveland Show Is The Most Popular Show On The Planet. (I don't really mean it)

    I prefer all the Scully seasons over all of the solo Jean seasons.

    I agree with both Diversity Pumpkin and Haoie's confessions, so maybe they are not so unpopular.

    I thought That 90s Show was a decent Homer-Marge relationship for modern standards once you forget about continuity issues. I really cared about their relationship in this one, the satire on Nirvana and grunge was pretty decent and the direction had some inspired parts . The use of Bittersweet Symphony in the octopus scene, for example. That's a scene I actually remember for its audio/visuals. Other recent episodes are so meh in their visuals that I barely remember anything.

    And yeah, Kirk Van Houten is awesome. But they should have kept him divorced. The more depressed and pathetic the funnier and more charming.
    My Simpsons homage!

    I like that 90s show too. People need to get off their high horse sometimes and just take an episode for what it is, just like The Principal and The Pauper. Take it at face value and it really isn't that bad

    Bart To The Future was way better than Lisa's Wedding.

    Why would they be? They are both good episodes.
    Or is it the degree that they said?
    "Way better" might be an exaggeration.

    Well Bart to the Future is considered by many to be bad, Entertainment Weekley named it the worst episode ever a few years back. I assumed they were kidding when they said it was way better than a classic.

    Very well put. However, there was bound to be somebody who did not agree, and this is an unpopular opinion thread.

    Season 10 is actually mostly good, and far better than any of Jean's solo seasons.
    Season 13 is overrated and contains some of the worst stories ever written.
    Bart Gets an Elephant is one of the funniest episodes in Season 5.

    Okay, I'm confused. I know most opinions here use sarcasm... but uh... did you really mean it, because I find some things true and a few other things not true.

    I gave @HMS pinafore a thumbs up only because that is a unpopular opinion. Jean seasons 14-18 are actually not bad and I would easily take them over any Scully season.

    I found seasons 21 and 22 relatively tolerable and consider them the best of the latter-day Jean seasons. That's not really a compliment, though.
    My Simpsons Season Rankings:
    6 > 7 > 3 > 5 > 8 > 4 > 2 > 1 > 9 > 15 > 13 > 14 > 10 > 16 > 12 > 11 > 22 > 21 > 17 > 25 > 24 > 18 > 26 > 20 > 19 > 23

    i cannot articulate why i think some things are funny. but ''lisa's wedding' is just not funny.

    fair enough really. the more i think about it some bits of the story are lame, as are some unnecessary future jokes. but i do see emotional value in it, so overall i think it's a perfectly good episode. not amazing, but standard classic quality

    Some of my unpopular opinions:

    -Season 10 is part of the classic era
    -Season 11 is almost classic
    -The three I've mentioned above
    -Homer Badman, LETS, and 22 Short Films are all overrated
    -Bart's Inner Child is one of the better season 5 episodes
    -There's No Disgrace Like Home is one of the best episodes of all time
    -CBG is a very annoying character
    -I rarely find guest stars pointless
    -The only thing in the animation I care about is that I dislike the HD look. Otherwise I really don't care about anything else regarding animation
