What is the worst season of The Simpsons? As there is not enough space for all of the seaons, I decided not to include seasons 6-8 because they are generally regarded as the best (peak) seasons & if anyone voted for them then they could'nt be a proper fan.

I'd say the show hit its nadir during Season 11.

I vote 11.  Every other season has at least one redeeming episode, but I can't think of one for 11.

What about "Behind the Laughter"? I thought it was really clever and innovative.

"Behind the Laughter" was clever, but that's no excuse for it's lack of humor.  The best part of that episode was the narration.

I voted for Season Twelve.  "New Kids on the Blecch" was by far the most wickedly stupid episodes I've ever seen.  It also suffered from "Cryogenic Woman" Syndrome: weak plot with no real conclusion mixed with an annoying guest star(s).  "I'm Goin' to Praiseland" was equally bad and, frankly, more disturbing.  I don't even know who Shawn Colvin is.  What happened to good guest stars like Sam Neil, James Woods, Johnny Cash, and Sam Enid?  The last straw came with "Tennis the Menace."  I'm a tennis nut, so when I saw that my athletic hero, Pete Sampras, was going to guest star along with three other big-name players I was excited.  How is it that none of the stars appeared until the last three minutes of the show?

Season Twelve shows that Fox has been looking at their ratings and trying to figure out to which demographic they're not appealing.  Why else would they have such narrowly-trendy guests like N'sync, the tennis stars, and Shawn Colvin?  It makes me sick to see that they've sold out so much, and it makes me sicker to know this will go on for another few years.  I used to pride myself for having collected every Simpsons episode ever made, but now I am only proud of those made before Season Nine.

Hmm, well I vote for season 11 because that was when I finally switched off watching The Simpsons.

A worst episode poll would be quite amusing. I'll start the list. (Kill me if its been done before).

The one where they go to Africa
The one where they go to Japan (noticing a pattern here)
The Trash of the Titans (the U2 guest star was cringe material)

Those are just 3 that come to mind.

Apart from Bender having a short cameo, it was utter crap, and in insult to Simpsons fans. Someone further up mentioned the "Japan" episode as being bad, how did you come to that conclusion? Out of the vacation episodes, it was one of the best, and you forgot to mention the Florida episode roll eyes

Season 11 had the least amount of good episodes.  Though there were a few.

Behind the Laughter, Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder, Last Tap Dance in Springfield and The Mansion Family are standout episodes in that season, I think.

The Japan one was me. I just found it a bit tasteless and racist. Maybe that's just me. Like the joke about epillepsy (sp?). In Japan, half the country went into eppileptic fits when a flashing lights sequence was shown on a cartoon and I just didnt think that was funny. The Florida episode sucked big time and I hate Kid Rock, but it was saved by the first five minutes where Homer is taking the tests.

I recently saw one where Lisa turned Buddhist or something and it reminded me what a snobby cow she is, and it had Richard Gere in it.

Oh an episode that really springs to mind is the one where they go to Australia. I heard that the Australian government got really uptight and tried to get that episode banned or something, because the Australians dont believe in capital punishment and the 'boot' and havent done so for years.

Other crappy episode:
-Beyond Blunderdome
-Homer in Kidney Trouble
-Lisa's substitute

If I was to vote for my least favourite episode ever, Lisa's substitute has to win it. I cant stand that episode, it is constantly on TV all the time.

Lisas substitute was a fairly good episode. they even had dustin hoffman play a part, but due to the contract, he asked his real name be replaced with "sam Etic"  for more info, visit this site.

Ehh, not that many people. The flashing lights (an episode of Pokemon, if anyone cares) caused a few genuine seizures, a lot of headaches, and a massively blown-out-of-proportion frenzy in the news media. (Oddly enough, the end sequence of that Simpsons ep--featuring "Battling Seizure Robots"--has caused 0 reported seizures to date.)

I adore Japan, and found the ep fairly innocent. It is a broad parody, to be sure, but it is also true in many respects; the depicted astonishing cruelty of their game shows, for example, was dead-on.

Marge: "You honor us."
"Wink" (game show host): Don't patronize me!!"

Producer Richard Sakai would probably agree that it was moderately tasteless--they usually are--but not racist. Frankly, the ep whaled on Ugly Americans (i.e., Homer) and the US Embassy more than Japan...

"Wink": "He seems okay...but he is being burned, internally!"   laff

Season 11 is, without a doubt, the crummiest, DUMBEST, STUPIDEST set of episdoes I've seen.  As soon as you watch that Bart A.D.D. episode, you realize just how far down the crapper this show's gone.

Listing "Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder" and "The Mansion Family" as stand out episodes really does show what a craptastic season it was  puke

Save for Behind the Laughter, Season 11 had the crappiest plots and events ever. When I first saw Saddlesore Galactica I was like "Wtf? Elven jockeys?" Elves wouldn't even exist in a 1991 Simpsons. I miss the bad boy bart that tormented Skinner's school.

I liked that episode too, probably the best of the season 10 lot. The jokes were fun in a way, like Homer buying that square watermelon. They do make gameshows like that in real life though. Clips from Japanese shows have their contestant run near naked in snowy hills, while being tempted by hot soup. They were also targets in a snowball dart-like game (risking getting hit in the bulls-eye nads!) Not many people know that the Japanese are the true founders of reality TV shows.

The animation from the seizure robots was done differently from the one in Pokemon. In the latter, blue and red emitted alternately with flashes of yellow in the background. In the Simpsons, the robot actually disappears in every third frame (checked it with a VCR) with only the eyes showing. The flash only appears when the robot is present.

I think I'll go with 12. I remember liking 11 for the first few episodes, thinking that maybe The Simpsons were finally getting back into a groove...but it didn't take long for them to suddenly drop to new lows.

13 has the distinction of being the season that made me stop caring about The Simpsons. Looking at it objectively, it's better than 12, but it still pisses me off way too much for me to watch it. I don't think I've watched a full episode since the Dennis Weaver episode(my god is that man sexy).

OK I retract that comment. I am simply going by what someone from australia told me a couple of years ago.

I still cant stand Lisa's Substitue. That probably has more to do with it being constantly on Sky One all the time. I can quote the whole damn thing.

Bump!  tongue

Seeing as now we have so many more Simpsons fans at this board, maybe it'd be interesting to see what happens here. Obviously the latest few seasons aren't included, because this poll was made in 2001, and now it's 2004. If you thought Season 13, 14, or think Season 15 will be, then just vote for the Season 13 option at the bottom, and say which season it is out of those you voted for...

What's the name of the episode where Maggie saves Homer from drowning in the sea? ...

I do still love the Simpsons though, although I'm not so keen on seasons 9/10/11. I haven't seen 12 yet, and 11 has just started being repeated on BBC2. That's the problem with the modern episodes - they are shown too much on TV ... but they still do have quotes and stuff that my friends will say.
