        Even the ones where Homer is totally unfunny?
        There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

        One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

          Either the fifth or sixth season.

          The worst was the fourteenth season.

              Maybe the second season. Definitely one of the first three and pre-Conan O'Brien.

                I can't choose only one, but it has to be the first seasons definitively.

                  I love the early Simpsons - when they were truly naughty, lol.

                    Really??? I personally hate the first season. It is so horribly dated and the animation and voice acting is dated. Homer isn't even dumb or funny in the first season, he is real serious. It doesn't even feel like The Simpsons to me. The show didn't truly take off until the 3rd or 4th season, IMO.

                      Heck yeah. The Simpsons began as really subversive and satirical.

                      This is what I'm off. The show was a phenomenon (a d, imo, funnier) in the first and second seasons for a reason. I love Homer as what you call serious, because he was a believeable character despite being a caricature at the same time. In the beginning much was made of the fact that these cartoons were not only rawer than other popular cartoons of earlier periods, they were also realer than most of the live action shows that were on. "Jerkass Homer" is a real detriment.

                      I love the "dated" animation and acting of the very early episodes, because they were unique and had a true voice. By the fifth season, the show had evolved to mainstream comedy. While I loved it at the time and still consider those to be very fine work, the show had started to lose the real and genuine bite and rough character that begat its popularity to begin with. As Steven Soderbergh recently said, quality entertainment bears the distinctive voice of an auteur, which was completely lost in The Simpsons by the end of the 90s and began its decline well before that.

                      What a disappointment. I truly wish the show had ended by 1998, or earlier. The overall body of work would be far better.

                      Well that's about half of what I feel about it but you get the gist. Anybody who wants more insight to this attitude about it should read Zombie Simpsons.

                        I think the show should've ended around the 9th-10th season. The 11th season had some pretty cringe-inducing episodes (looking back at least), and it only got worse.

                        I liked the show through the 12th season. I think it started to get around 13 or 14.

                              I haven't kept up with the episodes of the current season. I've only seen like two. I kinda gave up on The Simpsons after the much later seasons.

                                I meant the first seasons, plural, like the first 4 or 5 seasons, not the first season only. But I will say that the first season was way better than the modern Simpson episodes.

                                  They should do a documentary entitled "The Rise and Fall of The Simpsons".

                                    Much has been made online about the changes to Homer over the years.

                                    When the Simpson's first aired, Homer shared many of the same characteristics as Al Bundy on "Married...with Children", they both wanted to find ways to bring their families together by sharing common activities. Like a day at the park or at the beach or special events at the Springfield Stadium.

                                    The humor involved Dad picking a family activity and we get to watch how it all goes sooo wrong!

                                    One of the staff writers confessed in an interview a few years ago that as the series progressed some of the staff found it easier to milk a laugh if Homer played stupid. But once you go down that path, it's like a trap - you can't go back later and make him smarter again.

                                    When a show is new, characters get to move in many different ways. Once the characters are "set" the show's writers use that as a hook to hang gags on, sometimes to a fault!

                                      That's just right, eddstarr. I agree with the writer. It's very difficult to make a character smarter after you make him stupider, at least in a sitcom format. The leading staff, however, seems to think that means you have to keep on making him dumber and dumber all the time and with that I gotta disagree. Somebody in charge must have noticed the trend at some point, and if they cared about quality, they would have enforced a bottom limit to Homer's intelligence. "That's it. Homer can be stupid. But this is as stupid as he gets."

                                      My prime example of this is something I saw this season one of the few times I tried to watch. About five minutes in, somebody gave Homer a book. He said "What are we, cavemen?" Then he threw it into the fireplace, where there happened to be a fire burning. Then he screamed "Ahh! Fire!"

                                      ...What??

                                      This is the laziest writing I've ever seen in my life. (Nowhere in the episode was cold weather indicated, yet there was that fire, just waiting for the book.) At this point, "Teletubbies" makes more sense, and at times is just as coherent.

                                          Well, duh! Of course they have! The only reason the show is running is because it's making money! It has nothing to do with ratings, laughs, or anything like that!
