Worst Seasons of The Simpsons

The Top Ten

1 Season 24

A complete snore fest. Every episode from this season was by far the worst, especially the Lady Gaga episode. I can't believe the Simpsons was renewed for another season after this shipwreck. Hopefully, Season 25 won't be so bad.

The Simpsons seasons has ages because of its long life: golden age, silver age, Bronze Age, and the ordinary age in where it can be compared to family guy and American dad. This season IS the ordinary age. the Bronze Age is seasons 23, 25, 22, and 21

This season is truly forgettable, with drag episodes like "A Test Before Trying" and "Homer Goes To Prep Schools" and of course the shockingly bad "A Tree Grows in Springfield". The only good thing I can say is that "The Day The Earth Stood Cool" was good. That's right the BEST EPISODE in the season was only GOOD!

Change the channel and watch Seasons that you enjoy.

2 Season 7

This Should Not Be Number One In My Opinion Since The Modern Seasons Are Worst, But It's The Worst Of The Golden Age Since Some Of The Plots In The Season Are Stupid And The Characters Were Acting A Bit Out Of The Ordinary - rjbarg042

Why is this on top and there are no comments?

3 Season 1

The only reason this was bad was because they hadn't confirmed a general plot yet! Give them a chance! You can't magic genius in a matter of seconds!

I find this so unfair, I enjoyed the analogy's and metaphor's that were in Season 1. "Some Enchanted Evening", "Homer's Night Out" and of course "Bart The General" displayed some great issues in life (some in simpsons life albeit, but still). This is where Season 23 should be, might I remind you of "Lisa Goes Gaga".

No such thing as golden era but this season was not the worst its underrated my fave episode is Moaning Lisa, the later are also underrated seasons because you hate the celebrity.

I agree season 1 was boring I liked it a little

4 Season 23

Simpsons up to this point are hard to watch (unless you're someone like me, watching them just to see if there is a least some sort of "hidden gem", for me this season had none, some solace may be found in season 20 but otherwise it's a dead end. Season 23 is no different. The absolute disappointments in simpsons episodes are "Lisa Goes Gaga" and of course the "Diving Bell and Butterball" segment in Treehouse XXII. I do agree with IMDB that "Moe goes from Rags to Riches" and "Politically Inept, with Homer Simpsons" were awfully scripted episodes, but to say that "Holidays of Future Past" has the same rating as "Das Bus" is a scar to the name of the Simpsons.

This is where something went wrong. I had no problem with seasons 1-22, but then THIS happened. THIS is when the Simpsons went downhill, not during season 11. I remember, I was exited for the new season, I was watching, and I immediately shut off my T.V. , due to the awfulness of this season. The show now focuses way to much on Lisa and her liberal beliefs, way too many marijuana references, and they had Justin BEIBER ON THE SHOW FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! The show should have ended at season 22. - Megalink

5 Season 10

Seasons 9 and 10 are not the best, but at least get some funny episodes, unlike Seasons 11 and 12.

Season 10 was very dull and boring and only one or two episodes were good

6 Season 11

Expect for behind the laughter this season was lackluster. It had horrible stories. Characters acting out of the ordinary. If you like no sense simpsons this is for you. Plus the episodes were mostly boring

A few decent episodes, but most of them were boring.

I hate the episode where Maude Flanders gets killed, which is the cause of Ned Flanders Flanderization.

9 Season 25

It's not finished yet, but so far, it's just been awful. Plus, this is the season where they will kill of one of the popular recurring characters, so I'm not looking forward to THAT.

Simpsons lost mojo and entertainment value about 3season ago. Although the last 5 have lost some thing. I have watched every season from the beginning and I think this May be the last

Am I the only one who actually likes new seasons? They aren't as good as the old ones but they aren't bad.

10 Season 12

Homer getting raped by a panda is not at all funny. Like Season 11, I really hate this season.

Seasons 12 and 13 are a lot better then people think. I enjoyed several episodes from this season. Way better than 10

The Contenders

11 Season 6

Episodes such as Bart v Australia,Homer the great,Treehouse of horror 5 etc were really good in this season and really stood out. All episodes I at least moderately enjoyed in season 6. SHOULD BE NEARER TO THE TOP

Is this a joke? Season 6th here?! COME ON! "Treehouse of Horror V" is epic, "Bart v.s. Australia", "A Star is Burns" and "Homie The Clown" were hillariously funny, "Homer Badman" and "Homer the Great" had amazingly great plots, so why is season 6 worse then Season 22? P.s. I feel your pain RickyReeves

12 Season 18

There were a number of good episodes here, but it was the last of them. It was all downhill from after this. - PositronWildhawk

13 Season 3

Season three was great it gave us classic episodes like like father like clown radio Bart homer at bat homers odyssey Bart the murderer and brother can you spare 2 dimes

Why is this before season 27?! Season 3 was one of the high points of the Simpsons!

14 Season 13

Season 13 was brilliant!
Some of the really good episodes were 'weekend at burnsies', Treehouse of horror 12, the episode where marge has a lawsuit against sugar etc.
Way better than most previous seasons! Up there with season 14,15,16,17,2,3,4 and 5

15 Season 19

The treehouse of horror 18 was TERRIBLE on here. After this episode all the other tree houses of horror were crap - Harri666

This season messed up the continuity of Homer and Marge's relationship, and the rest is history.

16 Season 16

Just started thinking about this season. (Barf)

I usually watch a season when I get it on DVD in about 3-4 days this one I started it and couldn't nbe bothered finishing it. - JohnGormleyJG

Brilliant Episodes this time
One of the best seasons

17 Season 26

These days it seems like the simpsons have a writing staff consisting of drunk monkeys and DR Phil crap it's just crap!

This just in the simpsons hired a writing staff of drunk an d drugged up monkeys

18 Season 21
19 Season 14

Some Of The Plots Are Stupid With Episodes Like Helter Shelter, The Dad Who Knew Too Little, Barting Over, Dude Where's My Ranch? , And The Worst Of Them All Pray Anything (Homer Was Acting Really Stupid And Jerky In That Episode And Buying A Church To Live In It Is Weird And Creepy), But This Season Had One Of The Funniest Episodes How I Spent My Strummer Vacation Even If That Episode Was Not The Best Either, Pretty Poor Season In My Case - rjbarg042

20 Season 15

Like Season 14 Some Of The Plots Are Stupid And Annoying - rjbarg042
