Most Underrated Seasons of the Simpsons


The Top Ten

1 Season 1

Bart the Genius, hello the scrabble game. Bart cheating on his IQ test but poor Bart in a school he was never brainy enough to attend. Moaning Lisa, that is not a boring episode remember the boxing video game and Homers nightmare of it. I liked the first opening Bart taking the bus stop sign, that's so Bart.

I wish Sky One would show some episodes from it. Channel 4 used to nearly all the time once weird.

I wish they could've used the first intro on more of the earlier seasons. 2-4?

This season was the beginning of the Golden Age ( 1-10 ).

2 Season 9

Its because of the what episode Principal Skinner. But was a funny episode. Skinner likes dog food, Homer eats it, reaction to the name and Bart laughing and Skinner's mother reaction, up yours children, in your dreams, getting him home.

"The Principal and the Pauper" is non canon. Period!

"Miracle on Evergreen Terrace", "Lisa the Simpson", and "The Principal and the Pauper" made this season terrible. Season 9 = Worst season
(The 3 aforementioned episodes above are non-canon).

Miracle on Evergreen Terrace was a good episode. Lisa The Simpson - Ignoring the Simpsons gene (Hello Homers brother and Homer dumbness was the crayon) just had a bad day. The Principal and the Pauper - Well if Matt Groaning hated it he should've known about it when it was being animated and written and asked for it to be cancelled. The mothers reaction and I hate seeing "Period" on the internet. WHORE

3 Season 11

The Season after the golden era, some episodes weren't up-to-standard but 'Behind the Laughter' saved S11's backside...

Best Episode: Behind the Laughter - RickyReeves

It was not a terrible season. I saw the first episode from the season on Sky One a few weeks ago, it was a funny episode, I haven't seen it for years.

The beginning of the Silver Age, which lasted from this season to Season 17 or parts of Season 18.

Good thing Bart to the Future is non canon. What a horrible episode from the Silver Age (11-18).

4 Season 10

It's still one of the best seasons, although it's the last season of the Golden Age (1-10).

Well, at least Season 10 was slightly better than Season 9.

Still among the best seasons, perhaps the Golden Age.

The Simpsons season rankings 1-29

5 Season 15

A great season, with some great episodes, but underrated, but I don't like The Regina Monologues...

Best Episode: Treehouse of Horror XIV - RickyReeves

If it wasn't for Bart Mangled Banner, this season would have been better.

This was a great season.
Best to worst Silver Age Seasons

The best season of the Digital Age (Seasons 14-18).

6 Season 14

After the disappointing Seasons 11 and 12 and the forgettable Season 13, Season 14 was a big return to form for the series. Seasons 14, 15 and 16 are all fantastic. Season 17 wasn't bad either. Season 18 was mediocre, and Season 19 where the show once again turned to crap.

Season 11: Bad
Season 12: Great
Season 13: Okay
Season 14: Good
Season 15: Wonderful

Season 14 was good, on par with Seasons 12, 15, 16, and 17.

7 Season 25

Actually a season that could have been in the 11-16 region of The Simpsons, definitely better than the past 5-6 Seasons, (and underrated as well)

Best Episode (s): Brick Like Me, Labor Pains and Days of Future Future - RickyReeves

"Days of Future Future" was such an awful future themed episode. Even "Bart to the Future", once rated as the worst episode of the series, was much better than "Days of Future Future".

Believe it or not, one of my all time favorite seasons of the simpsons.

Days of Future Future wasn't bad, although it could've been better.

8 Season 16

A Nice Season, underrated episodes as well...

Best Episode (s): Goo Goo Gai Pan, There's Something about Marrying, Home away from Homer and The Father, The Son and the Holy Guest Star (I cracked up because of Homer saying he Masturbates a million times and doesn't intend on stopping) - RickyReeves

Well, at least Future-Drama was good, and better than Bart to the Future. Season 16 may have not been as Seasons 1-10, 12, 14-15, but it's alright season.
Rating: 7.5/10

Nah, either Season 15 or Season 17 were much better than this season. Although, Season 12 is actually the best season of the Silver Age (11-18).

Season 16 (2004)
Best episode: "Sleeping with the Enemy"
Worst episode: "On a Clear Day I Can't See my Sister"

-Simpson Safari

Bart: Alright, I got another one (crosses warthog)
Lisa: Hey, you didn't see a warthog!
Bart: I am looking at one right now.
Lisa: Mom, Bart implied I was a warthog.
Marge: Nobody's a warthog.
Bart: What about him?
(Lisa looks to her left only to find a warthog chewing on her hair)
Lisa: (Screams)
Bart: (Laughing)

10 Season 20

This season was much better than Season 19.

Great season. Up there with Seasons 1-10, 12-17, and 27.

This season had such funny episodes

Lisa Simpson taking Happy Pills (Anti Depressants) was really funny since "I am the 🦎 👸! "

The Contenders

11 Season 2

You see people list 3-8 or 3-10 and others list 2-8 or 2-10 as the golden era. Never understand why some people don't include season 2 in that golden era. Personally I like seasons 2, 3 and 4 the most and feel they're very similar in terms of quality and writing

It may among the early seasons, but it's still undoubtedly one of the best seasons of the series.

This season IS part of the Golden Age (1-10). It's among the best...

12 Season 19

Simpsons creator Matt Groening once called this as "our most ambitious season yet."
Note: This is the first post-movie season.

Unfortunately, this season wasn't released as part of the DVD series.

So underrated that it's barely memorable for the most part.

The forgotten season.

13 Season 13

Funny and episodes (some of them) and pretty underrated as well.

Best Episode (s): Treehouse of Horror XII, Blame it on Lisa and Sweet and Sour Marge. - RickyReeves

Even though most of the episodes were regular, the finale was amazing.

14 Season 21

Even though Season 20 had slightly better episodes, Season 21 was still decent.

Not a bad season, although "The Color Yellow" further ruined the Simpsons.

A slight improvement upon the previous seas

"The Color Yellow" is not canon. It's non canon.

Underrated season that deserves more credit.

This was an okay to good season. Thus it had great episodes such as Barthood, Halloween of Horror, and so on.

Amazing season. Barthood was great and better than Holidays of Future Passed.
