ManateeGag: in before all the normal anti-Simpsons sentiments.


The show did hit its stride in seasons 4-9. Afterward, it went into a slump for a few years. It's still funny, but nothing will reach the heights of those early years.

And that's okay.

I'd say 7-12 was their prime.  Still produces some watchable episodes but really when you've been on the air so long and they've practically done everything they're sort of grasping at straws.

I can't go past season 9 as being great, because IIRC, season 10 had that goddamn leprechaun jockey episode.

The slide started when David X. Cohen left for Futurama halfway through season 9 or 10 (his last episode is the one where Bart finds the lizard eggs, iirc.)

Season 10's latter half is really dire and the show didn't recover somewhat until seasons 16-18.

Incidentally the rough patch is where the show transitioned from being Bart and Lisa centric to dealing mainly with Homer and Marge.

Correct,.no way in hell 10-12 is better than 4-6, it's not even close.

I think a lot has to do with your age.  I could never regard 9 as better than 3.  4,5, and 6 were the money seasons.

I started to lose track after season 10.   There are some duds in that season because of way too many guest stars.  Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin?

I like the Simpsons just fine, but I can't imagine why someone would want Simpsons based makeup except in the toy or costume isle. Mac is some good stuff.

I just looked that up and it was season 11 - Saddlesore Galactica.  Not that it matters a whole lot.

I did like the BTO scene from that episode.  "Get to the workin' overtime part!"

seasons 8-9 is when they stopped having balance between the a, b, and sometimes c plot. It could be great like "the homer they fall" but when they wiffed, they wiffed hard. Seasons 5-9 even if you didn't like the main story the secondary one could carry the episode. Tomacco I think was also a season 10 one and I assume the writers were all going through divorces because homer and marge are one the verge of one 3 episodes a season for the next decade.

 became really apparent and sad when futurama started hitting its stride after about a season that all the Simpsons talent was drained to do it.

When I was reading TV Tropes, I came across an entry stating how fans are turning on Marge vs the Monorail claiming its too Family Guy like with an absurd plot, lame jokes and pointless guest star appearances. I was surprised at that and wondered if people will start turning against the 'golden years' as time passes.

I like it when MAC puts out their silly / cartoon special editions. They had an Archie themed one that was great. And I still wish I could get more of their Wonder Woman stuff.

IIRC (I'm too lazy to look it up) "You only move twice" is in Season 9.  easily one of the best episodes.

ot's one of my favorites, if not my singular fav. It does have subplots for each of the family members though. Season 9 had some great single premise EPs and it wasn't until seasons 10 and 11 that the formula failed and there started being a fair number of turds. Season 9 is probably my last "every episode is at least a b+" (except for principal and the pauper, which was good for the "this is Arman tanzarian's Swank." And was worst episode ever for some time.)

That was my personal breaking point as well. Was that really only season ten? Doesn't seem that long ago.

Season 8. One of my favorite all time episodes. Mainly because Albert Brooks absolutely kills it as Hank Scorpio.

"By the way, Homer, what's your least favorite country: Italy or France?"
"
France."
"Nobody ever says Italy."

WHAT?! Another one of my top 5 episodes.

"We're too late!"
"I shouldn't have stopped for that haircut. Sorry."

"A solar eclipse. The cosmic ballet goes on."
"Does ANYONE want to switch seats?"
 
2014-07-09 11:59:56 AM
4-8 are all top notch. every episode, consistently.9-12 have some memorable episodes, but could probably be condensed to a "best of" season. I don't think that I've ever heard anything positive about episodes past that.

Well, I loved the Barbie Loves Mac collection and some stuff from Hello Kitty Mac, so I'm sure I'll find something here that I like.

Why does everyone put the beginning of the Golden Age as season 4? Have we forgotten how awesome Season 3 was?

"Stark Raving Dad" (the Michael Jackson one)
"Flaming Moe's"
"Like Father, Like Clown" (Bart and Lisa convince Krusty's father to reunite with him by quoting Sammy Davis Jr.)
""Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk" ("We Germans are not all smiles and sunshine!")
"I Married Marge" (the first, and maybe the best, of the flashback episodes)
"Bart the Lover"
THOH 2

It may not have been as all-around excellent as S4, but it was solid enough that it should easily be included in the peak years.

I agree, earlier I chose 4-6 because I was comparing them to three later seasons, but I'd definitely say 3 beats 9.

You can keep your make up gun. My favorite is Jimmy Neutron's mother using the toaster to apply her "face".

Are we discussing the Simpsons as in "Doh!" or the Simpsons who own one of Britain's largest
department stores?  The latter would be more likely to sell cosmetics - but if one of these is
something that turns your skin yellow, all bets are off.
