    Unrelated, but I’m curious as to which episodes of season 8 people here enjoyed most. My top 3 are ‘You Only Move Twice’, ‘The Springfield Files’ & ‘Homer vs the 18th Amendment’.

      I’d say I enjoy most of them (the first two would likely be my top picks), so it’d be easier to list the ones I’m not as fond of.

      “The Homer They Fall” is okay, but it takes a long while after a viewing before I want to see it again. Kinda meh. I used to like “Hurricane Neddy” more, but these days it feels too much like a Flanders version of “The Principal and the Pauper”, despite having better jokes. And “Burns, Baby Burns” is the bottom rung. I guess I’ve never found Rodney Dangerfield all that funny and whatever good jokes might be salvaged from the episode are drowned by the insipid plot. Seriously, I’d have to go through the QotD to remember any I like.

      Oh, and the Sherry Bobbins one (not typing all that) is meh, but the songs embed themselves into my brain too easily and are less tolerable when I could have the Monorail song or other classics stuck there instead.

      ‘Brother from Another Series’, ‘The Twisted World of Marge Simpson’ and ‘A Milhouse Divided’ are top-tier episodes. The rest are generally ok but contain long gaps which earlier seasons would have filled with witty little asides. I have a soft spot for ‘Burns, Baby Burns’ as one of the last times Burns is shown as the heartless patrician he really is and the brilliant “More important than money? Who is this?” line.

        Is it really the last time he’s shown to be so heartless? The later seasons certainly began to wear him down into the weak/stupid mode, but I do know he was at least somewhat evil in a couple of later ones. And didn’t they show him still caring somewhat about Larry at the end, or do I need to make myself watch this again?

        Oh I agree about top-tier, except I have a hard time remembering the pretzel episode (not holding much against it though), and although I didn’t mind the van houten ep, I don’t remember ever catching the original airing, only in syndicated reruns later on, which spoils the atmospheric context in which I recall it.

        Also agree with the other comment about most of the eps of that season being less than stellar.
