The Greatest Simpsons Episodes Ever

List Criteria: Includes any regular episode starting from 1989 (first season) to present day. Shorts and movies are not included.

The Simpsons was one of the strongest, best written shows in the history of TV and this is a list of the very best episodes for you to vote on, and rank your own version. If you are a Simpsons Fan, you will find this a particularly hard one to rank. The top ten might be easy, you think, but then you will find another one that should be in the top ten... and another, and soon you have a top 20, and its still not enough. Vote on your favorites, add any you see missing, and, if you are a true Simpsons Guru, rank your own version to really impact the master list!
