Worst. Episodes. Ever.

Post by D.J » Sun Mar 15, 2015 8:32 am

I'm currently watching my Simpsons Season 11 boxset, and it got me thinking, what are the worst Simpsons episodes that you have ever seen?

I can only comment on those i've seen so far, but anyhow, here's the worst i've seen to date...

When you dish upon a star (Season 10)

Image

An awful episode which focuses on a couple of tedious celebs, boring and pointless.

El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer) (Season 8)

Image

I still have no idea what the writers were thinking when they came up with this, it's like one of those horrid dreams you get when suffering from a fever.

All Singing all dancing (Season 9)

Image

The first simpsons clip show was fun, the second was alright too, but this one (which focused on musical numbers) was just dull and lazy.

Anyhow, feel free to add your own stinkers.

I don't know the name of it, but I hate the one where Lisa tries to turn Willie into a gentleman. It's not funny, it's not interesting, and the songs are all horrible.

Though I dislike most of the musical episodes, to be honest.

that is exactly what they were thinking tbh did you not get the episode

real talk you cannot beat Classic Simpsons but as soon as you get into Zombie Simpsons territory it's all garbage

i hate all the episodes that are just simpsons character's acting out fairy tales or historical stories or the lives of other people (like the bart mozart one)

and i also do not like all singing all dancing, skip that every time im going through my boxsets

i also don't really like any of the treehouse of horrors sorry bout it

anything after about season 10 isn't really worthwhile everyone knows that though

Yeah, I forget what season it was but anything post it just went downhill so fast. I've seen a few of the past couple of year's seasons and they were horrendously bad so I'm fine living in the past with Simpsons.

The only Treehouse of Horror story I really enjoyed was Bart's Twin, that was great

The musical ones are cheap and pointless. I do not like them.

All of the episodes bar a few that focus on Lisa.

She is by far the worst and most annoying character.

An example of one of the few episodes that focus on Lisa is the one where Homer becomes a referee for Lisa's soccer team. Then again, that episode kinda focused on both of them.

Oh, and that one with Michael Jackson was awful.
Bleh.

Funnily enough, I liked Moe's Rags to Riches.

As for some of my favourites, there really is too many to count, but off the top of my head, "Trilogy of Error", "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer", and the mini episode "Homer3", part of "Treehouse of Horror VI" are all top tier in my book.

Easily this episode. I never liked it the first time I watched it and it is shown on Sky 1 far too often.

Nah, that's an amazing episode, one of the best.

The episode that made me give up was the one where Bart becomes a jockey, closely followed by that boy band one, think that's around season 11 or 12, not sure. However in terms of worst episodes, i caught the one where Homer's in a grunge band in the 90s, that was disgusting, as is any Lisa episode nowadays it seems.

For what it's worth, I don't think the new episodes are that bad.

I've only watched a few bits of the older seasons, but that just means that I don't try to compare the new episodes to the old ones. Most of the new episodes I've seen recently are still thoroughly enjoyable in my opinion.

Stop trying to compare new episodes to old ones. Just appreciate them for what they are.
Thank you.

Why? What's wrong with people comparing one of the most influential and long running tv shows' prime to where it is now?

The Principal and the Pauper is basically where the show starts going to eton mess, why take a well established recurring character like Principal Skinner and completely throw his background out the window? It makes the character feel so much less meaningful. It was an experiment/attempt at some sort of meta-humour which just didn't work.

Nothing at all. What I don't like is people saying that the new episodes are objectively bad and should be banished to hell. They're not bad at all. They might not be as good as the earlier seasons, but they're still solid pieces of television in their own right. People sometimes act like that's not the case.

As I said, watching the new episodes without having a high bar set by the older ones makes them much more enjoyable.
Thank you.

But it's hard not to have those expectations set in your mind, it's not something people do on purpose or can help.

Have to agree that El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer was a great episode; in fact I only ever see praise for it.
