Twenty seasons. Most shows could never dream of that. The Simpsons did it and then continued for over another decade. The last season I covered was the worst so far, and probably the worst Simpsons season ever. I’m planning to continue these rankings until I get to a season with episodes I don’t really remember. However, after season 19, I might end this next time I find a season that’s at least pretty good so I can end on a high note. That could be season 20. Like I have said before, I write these intros before I actually look at the episodes and do my rankings. This might be my last one. I might keep going. Let’s find out. It’s time for my ranking of every episode of the 20th season of The Simpsons!
21. “Double, Double Boy in Trouble”
20. “Wedding for Disaster”
19.”Four Great Women and a Manicure”
18. “In the Name of the Grandfather”
17. “Lost Verizon”
16. “Gone Maggie Gone”
15. “The Burns and the Bees”
14. “Sex, Pies, and Idiot Scrapes”
13. “Dangerous Curves”
12. “Eeny Teeny Maya Moe”
11. “MyPods and Boomsticks”
10. “Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words”
9. “Treehouse of Horror XIX”
8. “No Loan Again, Naturally”
7. “Father Knows Worst”
6. “Lisa the Drama Queen”
5. “Waverly Hills, 9-0-2-1-D’oh”
4. “The Good, the Sad, and the Drugly”
3. “Coming to Homerica”
2. “Take My Life, Please”
1. “How the Test Was Won”
Ugh. I almost want to apologize to season 19. This season sucks. It’s so bad. “Double, Double Boy in Trouble” is my least-favorite Simpsons episode. “Wedding for Disaster” is also in the bottom 10. I like four episodes from this season. None of them are great. There are more episodes I dislike than episodes I like, with some middling episodes in between.
The unfortunate thing is that by the standard I had set this would have been the last season I write about. A few of these episodes I barely remember. And yet, I can’t end here. I can’t end on a down note. Or, at the very least, I want to try not to. So I’m calling it now. Next week my rankings for season 21 will be my last. I know the season won’t be worse than this one. It sucks that an anniversary season like this was so bad. Some seasons are better left forgotten.
