For reasons hitherto unknown, I decided to put all the ratings i've given to episodes in the past, quickly give ratings to all the episodes i have not yet rated, and sort them by rating. so I could see my true favorite episodes and so on. Enjoy. I'm not expecting any comments really, as there's not much you can discuss about a page of letters, but nevertheless if you have any i'd love to hear em. the episodes are also chronologically sorted inside each grade. I consider a C+ grade to be "average", and D- is the bottom of my scale. if you are sad enough to spot which two episodes are missing because i haven't seen them (not counting Special Edna & Dad Who Knew Too Little), you win a nice chocolate bar.

personally I wouldn't have a problem giving at least a few episodes "F" grades, but I respect your opinions.

That's a brilliant guide there Mohammed Jafar and I'd have to agree with you on pretty much every rating you've got there

"Day Of The Jackanapes" and "Tennis the Menace".

What kind of chocolate bar do I win? :D

BTW, I pretty much have all the episodes rated, but it'd take some time to record them here. Perhaps when I get a spare moment tomorrow, I'll jot them down.

Reviewing episodes on a grade by grade basis would make me go crazy. Let's just say there would be no Cs and Ds and there'd be A++++ and F---- grades.

BTW, MJ, I agreed with your grades up until the B- area.

Well you did give a couple of sorely underrated episodes A+'s, so maybe that halfway makes up for it.

Nice list, MJ.

The fact that Summer of 4 Ft. 2 doesn't rate an A+ renders your list totally unreliable.

No offense or nuthin'. :)

well, I do think it's an excellent episode (it got an A!) but i just don't think it deserves that plus. I don't think Lisa was written as well as she could have been, she seemed slightly off-character at times, and why did the writers feel the need to distract us with the pointless 3-scene Homer subplot? It didnt think the gags were consistently brilliant either, as an A+ one should be. Nevertheless, I love Summer Of 4 ft 2.

Bart Gets An Elephant was pretty dumb. It was unfocused, a rehash of Lisa's Pony, and the vast majority of the funny material was in the first act before the word "elephant" was mentioned. Homer Goes To College expects us to be entertained the entire episode by Homer's twisted TV-styled adaption to college life, which has him acting like a complete moron, which is funny for about two minutes then gets very annoying (Unfortunately Homer would act like this for much of the season 10-12 period). It has a rubbish ending too, after wasting time with Homer's antics, notorious unfunnyman Conan O'Brien quickly remembers why Homer was at college in the first place, and throws together a rushed slapdash ending to the serious side of the story. But, it's funny in places, so it's just above average.

it sure is....

Homer is a completely one-dimensional moron who doesn't just act stupid, but acts sorta mentally deranged (chasing the squirrel, "Hello Dean, you're a stupidhead"), which isn't Homer and isn't funny. the Homer-misunderstands-college angle should not have been dragged out for the entire episode. it's totally Homercentric, the rest of the family are the background characters for his wacky adventures. the plot is disjointed and weird even though it is linear, and I have already mentioned the way the serious side of the story is crammed in poorly at the end (and handled badly even then). there's too much wacky, superstupid humor (the kind we would see a lot of in about five years time). If you like Seasons 10-12, you'll love Homer Goes To College.
