Seasons 1-6 – The SimpsonsZombie Simpsons ManifestoI have the first 5 seasons ingrained in my head pretty well and seasons 6-9 decently because I watched them when they came out and caught them in syndication over and over in my youth. They were on at 5 and later both 5 and 5:30 and I didn't have much to do in that time slot between my paper route and dinner - this was before the internets.
Season 7 – One Bad Episode
Seasons 8-11 – Mayday, Mayday, we’re going down!
Season 12+ – Zombie Simpsons. It has no pulse and no intelligence but it just won’t fucking die.
Somebody posited that the peak was the Monorail episode. That sounds plausible. It was season 4. I dare say the Monorail episode is one of the best things that has ever been on TV.
This reflection only makes me more mad that the "Jurassic Bark" episode of Futurama lost to an episode of The Simpsons.
