Simpsons "Neglectorino" Madness (Round 1)

OK, so fusoya’s Simpsons Madness is over and the great, great “You Only Move Twice” was the winner. But I know a lot of people were mad that their favorite didn’t even make the bracket, so here’s a Madness featuring the best of the rest of the first eight seasons.

Bracket titles will link to Wikipedia summaries of all of the episodes in case any of these names don’t ring a bell.

It’s really nice to just be able to sit back and vote on a subject I love. Just remember that even though round 1 takes forever to tally, it takes half as long each following round. I just hope everyone isn’t burnt out from the first madness and actually votes, since these are the episodes they wanted!

Just curious, how did you do the bracket placement? Dancin’ Homer is probably my least favorite non-clip show episode of the first 8 seasons, so I was surprised to see it at #3.

Anyway, who’s prepping for the Treehouse of Horror Madness? I was thinking it should be broken down by sketch rather than by episode…

fusoya is doing the Treehouse of Horror one and I agree, it should be by sketch.

As for Bart’s Inner Child, I didn’t think that episode was very good. And as soon as the trampoline goes away, it’s lame.

I’ve already done the bracketing for the Halloween Madness. It’s broken into Act 1’s, 2’s, 3’s and bumpers (gallery of paintings, Halloween party, etc)

And I agree. after Trambopoline (and the Rutiger line), that episode goes to hell. Bottom of season 5, which was otherwise an excellent season.

Just having some fun, I don’t want to give you any shit in a non-friendly way. While nothing in act two or three of that episode matches the trampoline stuff, I think those few minutes alone are funnier than most of the episodes from the earlier years. And I do like the James Brown band disaster.
