1Season 5

Cape Feare is the absolute best episode of all time in all of T.V.! And it is from season 5 of The Simpsons!
Best episodes from season 5.

10. Bart Gets an Elephant
9. Homer's Barbershop Quartet
8. Boy Scouts in the hood
7. Homer Goes to College
6. Bart Gets Famous
5. $pringfield
4. Homer and Apu
3. Deep Space Homer

1. Cape Feare

1-10 were by far the best seasons. During these seasons it was my favourite show of all time. Then what started was one of the biggest declines in a T.V. show's history.

Absolutely the best time for The Simpsons. After this season, the shows downfall began, very slowly, but surely. Today the show is mediocre at best

Best episode: Rosebud. Worst episode: The Last Temptation of Homer.

Lisa needs braces. (Dental plan) Lisa needs braces. (Dental plan)

Last exit to Springfield and Marge vs MOnorail. enough' said

Season 4 was the best. It should be #1

Lisa's First Word was awesome. period. - Goatworlds

3Season 8

"This is my son Bart. He owns a factory downtown."

My favorite is You Only Move Twice, but lots of good episodes in this season. - djh101

So many great episodes. Also one of the best one. Homers enemy.

Best episode: The Springfield Files. Worst episode: Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase.

4Season 6

Perhaps one of the funniest seasons, we see Homer chasing Uder (the chubby German kid) around a change room with a wet towel, Bart gets his first (of many) girlfriends and Australia gets cheesed off at "Bart vs. Australia". - Oreanta

I believe the episode Oreanta is referring to is in this season, this season also contains "Homer Badman", possibly the best episode ever made. - CaptainComedy17

Season 6: by far the all-time best season of The Simpsons. So many classic episodes and moments in that season alone.

I really love this season. Itchy and Scratchy Land is one of my favorite episodes ever.

5Season 7

this episode should be no. 1, it has a classic treehouse of terror episode. And other episodes such as Lisa The Vegetarian, Home Sweet Homediddly doo and many more. I Think This Episode should have more votes. (:

the simpsons were well and truley at their peak here. although, season 4, 3, 2, 5 and 6 are great aswell - CrowdedChisel

Does anyone remember when Homer was chasing Uder around with a wet towel and smacking him with it? HILARIOUS! - Oreanta

Best episode: Two Bad Neighbors. Worst episode: Marge be not Proud.

6Season 10

This season is so funny! My favorite episode is Viva Ned Flanders ( Desperate to enjoy his life, Ned Flanders goes to Vegas with Homer and gets drunk and marries some bar girls. )

All the seasons were the best until 21th and so on I miss the old classic simpsons. I can watch the old episodes over and over but I don't even want to watch the new ones once :-(

I love this season! My favorite episode is called "Bart the mother". The plot is Bart killing a bird by accident so he takes the eggs and raises them.

Best episode: Viva Ned Flanders. Worst episode: Simpsons Bible Stories.

8Season 15

this is my favourite season. the simpsons go to england, homer meets the queen, bart and lisa chase homer and marge around the world, maggie is a genius (or at least we thought), homer meets his mother again, lisa becomes school president, milhouse moves and homer is the secret indenity of 'the pieman'! I love this season!

Heh heh heh. Lisa meets JK Rowling, Homer turns into a robot and Bart goes to juvie and is pushed around by a girl named Gina, I lauged out loud. Some really good memories from this season. This one's proof that the Simpsons weren't going downhill, they were just on and off. It was more the writers on the job. - Oreanta

Terrible season, wacky story lines that make no sense, filled up with bad jokes, flat characters, uninteresting and lazily shoved in guest-stars, and shallow and fake emotion. Bart-Mangled Banner, especially, is such an atrocious episode.

The first 10 seasons were great including the first 3. Every thing after that up till this year were horrible.

9Season 3

This is the season where the Simpsons started gaining popularity. The second installment of "Treehouse of Horror" appeared, sealing the deal that a new one would come back. - Oreanta

A ton of quality episodes, but the amazing backstory created by I Married Marge really set a nice backbone and Homer at the Bat puts them over season 4 in my opinion. Homer at the Bat is right there with Mr. Plow (Season 4) for best episode.

Best episode: Bart the Murderer. Worst episode: Saturdays of Thunder.

Separate vocations is my best Simpsons episode

The Contenders

11Season 2

Season 2-8 are excellent with seasons 2-4 being the most consistently brilliant but 5-8 have some very strong standout episodes and as I already stated are excellent. Season 2 is the best though. Bart the Daredevil is the greatest episode ever. There just isn't a bad episode - so many episodes I'd forgotten - Itchy & Scratchy & Marge - Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish - basically the whole season is outstanding. It has the charm of the first season but a million times funnier and better written!

"Dancing Homer" and "One fish two fish blow fish blue fish" were the best of the season - Megalink

Every episode is like a movie filled with emotion and satisfying endings

This season had my favourite episode:Three men and a comic book.

12Season 18

In this season, we see the death of Homer's vegas wife who, unless I'm mistaken, hadn't been seen since season 13. Homer joining the army, Marge becoming a "handywoman", Bart learning he kicks butt at drumming, Marge becomming addicted to an online MMORPG and Moe and Lisa writing poems are all some pretty good episodes in this season. 24 minutes was an excellent episode, too. Pretty good season. - Oreanta

13Season 1

The most underrated season by far. Also the second best season after season 6. Contains the best episode of all time... 'The Telltale head'.

Ah season 1. Full of first appearances, some pretty funny jokes and really crappy animations. - Oreanta

Best episode: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire. Worst episode: Homer's Night Out.

14Season 23

What? That's one of the worst in the history of the series. Shame on you for putting this season so high on the list.

The simpsons proves that it is not old. Granted after season 10 the simpsons became quite boring with already used plots but this season is pushing the boundries and reinventing the family we came to love. Favorite episode is the future episode, it was just incredible and the best episode I've seen in 18 years

I know it's not finished but it's brilliant! Bart shows his academic side in "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts"; there was a great Avatar parody in the treehouse of horror; we visit the future in "Holidays of Future Passed" and Bart and Lisa learn about parenting; and how could any of you forget Homer and Bart's tween book 'The Troll Twins of Underbridge Academy"? This is clearly the best season!

15Season 11

The Simpsons knew sadness in this season with the departure of Maude Flanders. But that didn't stop the DVD box from being adorned with Krusty the Clown. Bart sees his future in "Bart to the Future" and Homer becomes a missionary in "Missionary: Impossible". This was also the season that survived Y2K, ending in May, 2000. - Oreanta

16Season 14

Sit is the best, simply because it goes back to the good old days

17Season 22

Ok, I prefer the old simpsons seasons like from 4-10, but this season is great. The Fool Monty was hilarious, there was a great treehouse of horror, and an amazing Christmas special. It is a very impressive season!

There's literally no good episodes in this season. They're all garbage, and even some of the worst of the whole series.

18Season 17
19Season 16

I love "There's Something About Marrying"! It has one of my all-time favorite bits, where Homer and Lovejoy ate on Smartline, I die with laughter.

20Season 24

Okay, this season really doesn't deserve to be on this list. People who think this season was funny obviously NEVER watched any of the older episodes.

I love this season. And I have watched the older episodes and I like them too. Why can't you just accept that some people like both different kinds of humor. Hmm. - awegumballcraz

It is a terrible season it could go here but some episodes is alright ill say this is about the 23rd best season of the Simpsons but the 1st best season is definitely the complete second season of the Simpsons homer is a really good actor I'll say

This season has only 1 problem that the simpsons are green

Season 24 is not that bad, it's number 7 in my list
