Homer Badman was my long-term favourite episode. Think I rate Last Exit to Springfield slightly higher these days.

All of these are good nominations though.

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.
I think I heard somewhere that one of the show's actors (think it was Julie Kavner) hated that episode - was her least favourite (at least at the time.) Something to do with the parade of guest stars.

I still think it's an amazing episode. Probably the earliest that makes it onto Top 10 lists purely for its jokes, unlike some of the more emotional-based stories around the early seasons.

Why the thumbs down Andre? Fantastic episode. Full of laughs.
It's a s**t episode. The best episodes of the Simpsons have taken something they want to make fun at and exaggerate it. WTF was 'the boot'? It's one of the few misses from the early seasons to me. It has no place alongside others in the season like "Lisa on Ice", "Lemon of Troy" and "Who Shot Mr Burns?".

I'm taking this all the way to the Prime Minister!

disparaging the boot is a bootable offence!
