"My pockets hurt" is one of the best one-off lines of the later seasons, though. I will say that.

The other 2 I hear mentioned are the Skinner/Arman Tanzarian episode and the episode where the simpsons go to Florida and kill an alligator.


The Florida one was where I really remember thinking, "wow, that was...off." I love the Arman Tanzarian one, though. A lot of fans also think the Frank Grimes episode is the geneis of Jerkass Homer (though I love that one, too).

Trash of the Titans is also a clear sign of Jerkass Homer.

I have been purposely avoiding the bulk of the marathon in anticipation of the app coming out in October. I want to spend an entire weekend just bathing in the warm glow of Simpsons goodness.

As such, I decided it was finally safe to watch an episode or two last night. I sat and watched the Superbowl episode and the Max Power episode. I feel like I'm pretty objective because I haven't seen any of the good stuff in quite a while. My ratings on each (out of possible 10):

Superbowl = 2
Max Power = 6

Just looking at some of the episodes listed, I thought the noticeable drop off started in season 12 or so. That being said, those two episodes do not reflect well on pre-season-12.

I've seen the Arman Tanzarian episode listed a few times in here but I definitely liked it.

I'll admit...I'm not enough of a Simpsons nerd to have known what this meant.

Studies show that old people drive at least as well as sleep deprived apes.

About Hispanics/South Americans/etc. The bellhops kick suitcases around like a soccer ball! There's a fruit hat in the hotel room! Let's laugh about Favelas!
