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.

What a wonderful season!

It's my favorite season and some S9 episodes rarely gets mentioned on the sites I go to and I think its actually very good, some say S9 is the end of the golden era of The Simpsons, but I think its S10...

Best Episode: The City of New York vs Homer Simpson - RickyReeves

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.

Best episode: Behind the Laughter
Worst episode: Bart to the Future

Some episodes such as Bart to the Future were terrible.

4 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

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

5 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.

Moe baby blues? Three Gays of the condo? The best treehouse of horror in 5 years?

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

6 Season 10

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

The End of the Golden Era of The Simpsons, in my opinion, really funny episodes and moments, and of course underrated too...

Best Episode (s): Thirty Minutes over Tokyo, Lard of the Dance, Treehouse of Horror IX and Viva Ned Flanders - RickyReeves

The end of the Golden Age ( 1-10 ).

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

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

An improvement over Season 24.

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

Silver Age (11-18) best to worst

Good season not as good as season 1-10 but would take it over [shudders] seasons 11 and 12

9 Season 12

The best season of the Silver Age ( 11-18 )
Best to worst seasons

This Season had quite a lot of viewers.

Season 12 was an improvement on Season 11.

10 Season 20

This season was much better than Season 19.

This season had such funny episodes

This season is SO underrated


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

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

12 Season 19

This season ruined the original continuity.

Season 18 > Season 19

Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind?

I think some of the episodes in this season are complete and utter garbage, like the one with Lurleen, but others are alright like the Sideshow Bob One, Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind and Treehouse of Horror XVIII - DoubleJ2005

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

This season was a dissertation, mostly.

Better than Season 11.

Most of this season's episodes were meh, but the finale was great.

14 Season 21

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

A slight improvement upon the previous seas

15 Season 27

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

So Underrated. If you saw Barthood, Halloween of Horror, etc., vote for this

Barthood, and Halloween of Horror were great episodes.
