Having personally watched thousands of hours of The Simpsons over the years, often putting on an episode in situations where normal people might listen to music, I realize that early seasons get a lot of attention, but there were some great episodes beyond the first few seasons. I’ve restricted this list to one episode from a given season, so, if your favorite is missing, as the kids never particularly said in the 80s, “Don’t have a cow, man.”
Seasons 1-5 are chock full of fantastic episodes, but they’ve received a lot of attention over the years, but Mr Plow stands out as a perfect blend of life lesson and comedy, with a dash of how-to-write-a-jingle.
With Westworld’s revival on HBO last year, The Simpsons’ trip to Itchy and Scratchy Land is once again relevant. A parody of the original Westworld.
As a vegetarian, this episode is hilariously accurate.
Homer gets a job with a Bond villain, who, it turns out, is actually quite a decent fellow.
Homer gets a gun and joins the NRA, but they’re not cool enough to hang with Homer’s practical approach to firearms.
Homer’s lawsuit against “Police Cops” for improper use of his name fell apart, so he changed his name, as one does in these situations..
Stupid people often fail to understand just how hard it is for smart people to put up with them. Smart Homer’s of the “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” mindset.
I lived next to a church with a jumbotron once. It’s like the playoffs every Sunday!
