OK, time for the second poll, this one's for seasons 4 and 5. Be sure to vote in Round 1 if you haven't already. Not everyone knows episode titles, so here are basic descriptions from SNPP:

Season 4
Season 5

Bloody impossible to choose, I haven't decided yet.

Though decision, but eventually I went with "Cape Feare". I just love Sideshow Bob (as a character), having him in an episode is almost as good as Insta-Classic.

"Hello Mr Thompson."
"I think he's talking to you."

"No, no, that's German. The Bart, the." Thanks AJ.  wink

And the rake scene!   laff

He says it means "The Bart, the."  I know that isn't proper grammar, but the joke makes no sense otherwise.  However the closed captioning reads "Die Bart, die."

Ah, the mot juste!

"Cape Feare" get's my vote.  Nuff said.

Cape Feare, Kelsey Grammer's great voice is really what makes it. He sounds so dignified that it's funny when Sideshow Bob steps on all those rakes (If you don't know what I mean watch "brother from another series" ).

Oooh..."Cape Feare" or "Last Exit to Springfield?" Or maybe "Mr. Plow?" Don't make me choose!

All those episodes are hilarious, but I gotta go with "Cape Feare". Sideshow Bob is one of the greatest characters on the show, and this was maybe his best ep. The rakes, Mr. Thompson and the HMS Pinafore are all memorable scenes for me for the series in general.

All those are great but I vote for Bart Get's an Elephant.
Homer: "Here's the keys!"
Blackheart: "Elephants.... don't have keys."

Kamp Krusty: Very good, but maybe not quite "A" material.

Homer the Heretic: One of my faves.  Very funny and insightful.

Mr. Plow: A tad overrated, but still loads of fun.

I Love Lisa: One of my faves

Last Exit: The winner here.  I wouldn't put it as my fave episode ever (Lisa's Substitute gets that ranking) but its nothenless an amazing episode.  When I made a top 50 list for the Nohomers board (someone was compiling some of the top members' lists to make an official 100 list for the board) it came in at number four for me.

Cape Feare: number five on that same list.  One of my faves for sure.

Last Temptation: Eh... a "B" episode, maybe "B+".  Its very funny for the most part, and Homer himself is loveable enough, but the story lacks the poignancy of "Colonel Homer" and especcially "Life on the Fast Lane", and quite frankly I just don't really care what's going on.  The ending is sorta sweet, but this one is good as a second rate (by Simpsons standards) farce only.

Homer and Apu: Very good ep, but rather overrated.  All of Greg Daniels' other episodes are much better.  "Apu" is fun, but there are much more fun episodes and the humor aspect is all it really has going for it.

Deep Space Homer:  Another favorite.

Bart Gets an Elephant: Eh...VERY thin and just not a particularly strong episode by classic Simpsons standards.  Again, there's not so much WRONG with it, but it doesn't have that much going for it either when you rate it up even most other 1-8 episodes.  One of season 5's weakest, and that's saying something since that season was a considerable drop from 1-4 (though still very good).

I thought I'd make the next poll just season 6, as it just has so many classics. I'll probably do the same for s7. Anyway, here are the s6 nominations so far:

Lisa's Rival (The strong must protect the sweet...)
Bart vs. Australia
A Star Is Burns
The PTA Disbands (My favourite episode. So very many great quotes.)
Who Shot Mr. Burns? - Part 1

If you're gonna do a whole Season 6 poll, please please but 'Lemon of Troy' in. It's my fave ep out of all Simpsons. Also, the Stonecutters ep, the Itchy and Scrathy Land ep, the ep where Homer goes to Clown School, Lisa's Wedding and... wow, it's no wonder I like Season 6 so much  smile

Cape Feare.  The writers really shine whenever they write a Sideshow Bob episode, but this may be the best of the bunch.

For the Season 6 poll:

"Homer The Great" (Patrick Stewart really make this episode. He's absolutely awesome as No. 1. Plus it's a great episode, with one of the best songs ever.)

Other than that I'll second "Lemon Of Troy", "Homie the Clown" and "Itchy And Scratchy Land".

"Homer the Heretic" has NO votes? That has got to be my favorite episode of all time! It's got my vote!

Lisa's Wedding
Lemon of Troy
Lisa on Icej
THOH V
Homer: Badman
Bart's Girlfriend
Who Shot Mr. Burns
Itchy and Scratchy Land

A star is Burns and Bart vs. Australia are fairly weak eps though, IMO.

Last exit to Springfield has so many perfect comedic bits- "Is he coming on to me?", "You're going to make a big splash" and so on. Cape Feare is equally good- Kelsey Grammer is awesome.

LETS wins it for me, though.
