In honor of the marathon.

Thoughts/disagreements? What are your top five episodes? And have you been watching the marathon?

Haven't read the whole list, but at least they seem pretty nicely spread among all seasons. (Maybe a bit too nicely spread, IMO.) Though I noticed that they got the title of "The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons" wrong.

I'll never be able to choose favourite OFF episodes (unless I get to choose all of Seasons 2-8 and parts of 1 and 9 as well), but ones that would definitely be on the list would be "Last Exit to Springfield", the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" duology, "Lisa the Iconoclast", and pretty much every episode featuring Sideshow Bob (from the good seasons, that is).

EDIT: Actually, strike that. I enjoyed pretty much every Sideshow Bob episode except "Day of the Jackanapes". The only thing that was funny in that was Bob stepping on the rake.

I feel much the same way, though I think it started to get wobbly for me around season 10 or so.

My Top 5:
1: Lisa's Wedding
2: Marge On The Lam
3: I Married Marge
4: Lisa Vs Malibu Stacy
5: A Streetcar Named Marge

Those are some good ones! Especially numbers 1 and 5, in my opinion.
