The Simpsons

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

My offhand personal favorites (no real order or sense to them, and I'm just spitballing, so I'll probably forget a lot):

Last Exit to Springfield
Marge Vs. the Monorail
A Streetcar Named Marge
Homer Goes to College
Rosebud
You Only Move Twice
The Radioactive Man Movie
Bart on the Road
Cape Feare

Bart the Daredevil.

Could watch this once a day. everyday.

Homer thinking his talk with Bart has changed his mind as we see Bart casually escaping from the house.
Homer showing his love for his family by doing something totally fucking mental
his joy when he thinks hes made the jump is classic... followed by the funniest couple of minutes in any Simpsons episode.

I like small parts of others..Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?...Dead Putting Society...Homer's Triple Bypass..and the ones mentioned here...but this is my fav.

Homer's fall(s) down the gorge are a bit of a turning point for the show. Prior to that, the creators did not want cartoon physics, a la Warner Bros, to get into the scripts. The show didn't fully embrace cartoon physics afterwards, but you did see characters take a hell of a lot more physical abuse and injury and walk away just fine.

I think this applies to Homer only.
see 'Homerpalooza'
or 'The Homer They Fall'


You Only Move Twice... has not been mentioned and should be.

Wolter mentioned it. Perhaps the last undeniable classic of the series. The wife doesn't know the reference, but sometimes when she asks me about my day, I'll mumble, "I tackled a loafer at work today."

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Homer's Phobia, Poochie, Grade School Confidential (Skinner and Krabappel Get Together) and Homer's Enemy came after.

I'd say Lisa's Sax is the last undeniable classic.

Okay, I'm obviously fucked in the head regarding episode order. I thought that it was well after Poochie and Frank Grimes.

I thought you were just spraying purple contempt over some greats, because your standards are just that high.

My standards have never been high; usually just indefensible.

"You were in The Blue Lagoon, and I'm a blue haired goon."

Watched that ep on dvd last night and that line might have made me laugh the hardest.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
