Season 10

Chris and I know The Simpsons seasons 1-10 like the back of our hands. We have 11 on dvd (it's atrocious) and 12 (a little less atrocious). Neither of us has any interest in any of the seasons beyond that. There are a few decent episodes sprinkled here and there (the Christmas episode from 15, 'Tis the 15th Season, is a rare gem...and boy do I mean rare), but mostly its garbage. I won't even get into how awful the show is now. Has anyone ever just turned on a new episode and watched it for kicks? It makes you want to smash your head into a wall.

It's interesting that you stopped watching after season 10 John. The show really loses it after that.
10 is kind of a transitional season. It's the second year of Mike Scully's tenure as showrunner, and you can notice a definite change in the show compared to season 9 or 8. Chris and I know all the episodes in season 10 well, so if you want to start writing about any of them, we'll be able to chime in. We are currently revising our rankings of seasons 1-10. Chris and I both made rankings of these 2 or 3 years ago, but we wanted to do updated versions while watching the episodes in order. We are in the middle of season 6 right now. We probably don't even need to watch the episodes in order to rank them (we've seen nearly all of these episodes at least 50 times), but we just love re-watching them, so we figured why not.

Neither of us are interested in ranking seasons 11 or 12, so you don't have to worry about those if don't want to.

Chris has seasons 1-12 on dvd and I have seasons 3-8 (the golden years for sure). We can make an arrangement sometime.
