Avoiding more obvious nominations...I personally love A Streetcar Named Marge. Its got music, its got humor, its got Ayn Rand's School for Tots, its got drama and a happy ending.

pic related, marge's face when someone actually listed a marge episode as one of the best

I bet you're gonna say Bart Gets an F, Lisa's Sax and Maggie Makes Three are overrated, too

Nothing against the first two, but if you'd read Usenet posts from 1995, And Maggie Makes Three was pretty badly savaged.

I've been making my way through The Simpsons this past month and I'm half way through Season 3. So far my favorite episode is tied with Three Men and a Comic Book and One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish
>>
>>77540118
Do yourself a favor - stop at the end of Season 9.

While there are a handful of watchable episodes in the next couple of seasons there's a MASSIVE dropoff in quality once Season 10 starts.

Season 9 isn't perfect but still has a decent number of solid episodes and the last couple actually let things end on kind of a high note for all the characters. Homer earns Bart's respect, Home and Lisa bond a little, Marge and Homer work out some relationship shit, etc.
>>
>>77540248
Yeah, I've usually only seen Zombie Simpsons but I'm really enjoying season 2 so far and 3 is keeping a good stride.
>>
>>77539375
that was one of the first episodes I saw, I was really touched by how much emotion and relation they put in the older episodes.

My fave was always Bart The General

teaming up with Grandpa and Herman to take down bullies with extreme prejudice, what's not to like?

I'm amazed at how emotional they managed to make that episode, despite the fact that you know homer's obviously going to live.

>>77539130
My favorite is Bart Gets an F. I'm not even a big fan of the early show but it was great.
>>
I never see anyone mention Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish". That episode made Grandpa Simpson awesome.

The one where Bart gets a drivers licence and he, Martin, Nelson and Milhouse go to Knoxville is my favourite. Just fucking gag after gag and it's Excellent.

I can't think of a favourite episode, but this was my favourite moment:

I remember seeing a joke in the simpsons where marge is saying something inspirational to Lisa. Then hands her a "You Are Lisa Simpson" note.

Then Lisa says "Thanks Mom but i already have one of these"
>>
>>77543784

>Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been to Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together.

It's my favourite joke in the simpsons

>>77541976
Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy and Lady Bouvier's Lover are also great. The show used to know how to make fun of old people without dehumanizing them.
>>
>>77551666

>>
>>77551922
I like it because it explores Homer's relationship with his dad more.
>>
>>77551922
We were all 12 once, you know.
>>
>>77551965
I read some old Usenet reviews and they complained that the episode completely changed plots after the first act.
>>
>>77551986
Yeah. The usenet people are usually right about stuff. We future people have goggles on because we've seen so many terrible, terrible episodes.
>>
>>77551965
The writers probably didn't want to beat the sex stuff to death because that's just icky so they dropped it halfway through the episode.
>>
>>77551986
yes, and...?
>>
>>77551850
They mention a couple times on the DVD commentaries about their old people obsession.
>>
>>77543784
MR. BLACK
>>
FWIW, on the Natural Born Kissers DVD commentary, Matt Selman remarks that that episode was partially based on his parents' marital problems.

I don't think O&W's old people fetish is as disturbing as knowing this much about your parents' sex life.

Looking at the drawing style, color palette, and size of characters' pupils here, do you think "This is Classic Simpsons", "This is Neo Simpsons", or "This is Transitional Simpsons"?

>>77552168
This was from an old Usenet review of that episode.

"The writers made the obvious decision to focus more on Marge & Homer's plight of not being seen rather than the nudity itself (there's a small, but tasteful difference). The B plot with Bart & Lisa was essentially throwaway, but there was no way they could be incorporated into the main plot."

>>77543183
It's Bart on the Road and it is my favorite as well, the plot between Lisa nad Hoemr is adorable and the small Marge plot where she realizes how empty her life is without her family around is heartbreaking. That episode explores every main character so well, it would be the episode to reccomend to anyone who never hear of the Simpsons if anyone had ever not heard of the Simpsons.
