Very quickly discovered that it's not a kid's cartoon, it's an animated sitcom.
That changes across seasons 10 - 11 to become just a kids show. The show, even often the same scene / joke being aimed at both adults and kids in different ways disappears. It'll be interesting to get your view point as someone starting from scratch as an adult when you reach around this point. Kids today, many still like the new episodes, but outside those liking the crudest slapstick style humour not so many that grew up on it. And I doubt those kids will still reference stuff from seasons 12 onwards 20 years later regularly, as many 'old school' Simpsons fans still do for the golden years of Seasons 1-10.

Nearly finished Season 2. Lisa's Substitute was amazing.

I'm jealous that you get to watch Season 5 for the first time.

If you're watching on DVD, Season 5 Disc 3 is the :goat: disc for me
Haha no way was I paying for the entire run. Had to pirate everything.

Just finished Season 2 last night with Blood Feud. Mr Burns is an insanely important part of the first 2 seasons, he's easily the biggest character outside of the immediate family. Does this carry through for the whole show?

Outside of the family members he has more lines than any other character on the show.

Does S3E17 Homer At The Bat have any competition for greatest episode of all time? There are dozens of unbelievable and timeless episodes across the first ten or so seasons but I always thought that ep stood in a league of its own. Keen to hear some others' input.

Last Exit to Springfield, Lisa's Substitute and Marge vs the Monorail have to come close.

From a personal perspective, I really liked HATB (especially Talking Softball, 'Darrrrrrrryll!, Darrrrrrrryll!' and Homer scratching himself) but it would have been better if I knew who the players were before the episode

S03E03 (When Flanders Failed) is possibly my favourite so far bar Lisa's Substitute. The genuine anguish I feel for Ned contrasted with by far the funniest scene I've encountered thus far:

21 short stories about Springfield and Mr Plow are two highly rated eps. Personally I would also have Missionary: Impossible in my top 10 eps as well.
