The situations definitely jump around way too much in the new ones. You could miss one scene and then have absolutely no idea what's happening, or why it's related to the previous scene.

I'm really in the minority here. The first season I was dissatisfied with was 19.

Saw the episode with Mr. Burns' stuffed bear tonight. I haven't seen this one in years, but it's still awesome.

I tried to pick my favorite from each season.

1: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire
2: Three Men and a Comic Book
3: Radio Bart
4: Marge vs. the Monorail
5: Cape Feare
6: Homer Badman
7: Lisa's Wedding
8: A Milhouse Divided
9: Lisa's Sax
10: Mom and Pop Art
11: Last Tap Dance in Springfield
12: Hungry, Hungry Homer

13 to whatever season they're on now: who cares.
WHOA, NICE GRAPHICS!

Interesting.

1  Krusty Gets Busted
2  Simpson and Delilah
3  Bart the Murderer*
4  Kamp Krusty
5  Cape Feare*
6  Homie the Clown
7  A Fish Called Selma*
8  You Only Move Twice
9  Natural Born kissers
10  Mayored to the Mob
11  E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)
12  Trilogy of Error*
13  The Frying Game
14  C E (Annoyed Grunt)
15  My Big Fat Geek Wedding 
16  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Guest Star
17  The Seemingly Never-Ending Story*


*top ten episode
Strangely,  season 13 was one of the hardest to pick.  There are 3 equally excellent episodes in there. 
I'd say the show finally tanked after 13,  but there are still one or two great episodes each season after that,  including a couple of classics.

I haven't watched this show in years, but for a long time, it was one of my favorites.  The first 9 or 10 season are pure gold.

I don't know the name of the episode, but it has to be the one where Marge is laid up in the hospital with a broken leg, Lisa takes over the household chores, Bart and Homer act like pigs, and Lisa then tricks them into thinking they have leprosy.

That's Little Big Mom from Season 11. One of the better episodes from that season, I'd say.

It is probably my favorite.  Tons of great lines in that one.

Also, I always loved the slogan for selling fireworks for Independence Day:

Homer: trying to casually buy illegal fireworks: Let me have one of those porno magazines, large box of condoms, a bottle of Old Harper, a couple of those panty shields, and some illegal fireworks, and one of those disposable enemas... eh, make it two.

Later...
Marge seeing Homer's purchases: I don't know what you've got planned for tonight, Homer, but count me out.

This is one of my very favourite scenes:

Marge: "Why are you frosting that old throw pillow?"
Homer: "I could ask you the same question."
Marge: "Should I just back out of the room now?"
Homer: "Would you?"

One of my favorites:

Marge: Homer, when are you going to give up this stupid sugar scheme?

Homer: Never, Marge! Never! I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles! Sure, I might offend some of the blue-noses with my cocky stride and musky odors! Oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called City Fathers who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards and say, "What's to be done with this Homer Simpson?"

A part in an episode I saw recently that made me guffaw:

(Brainstorming things to do to save money)
Bart: I'll take up smoking and give that up.
Homer: Good for you son, Giving up smoking is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do. Have a dollar.
Lisa: But he didn't actually do anything!
Homer: Didn't he, Lis? Didn't he?

:lol A classic Simpsons moment.

I saw another new-ish episode the other day (may have been new, or no more than a year or two old, as it was in widescreen).
You know you're in for another shitty episode when the couch gag is Avatar. Nothing quite says cutting edge originality like the millionth direct copy of Avatar that doesn't actually contain a joke other than "we're copying something topical, so thus we think we're funny".
Then the originality continued by mocking Fox, then having every network come up with a fake news story by spreading a virus for reasons that aren't actually explained other than some vague empty idea of "media is evil lololol".
Then it turns into a Mr Burns episode, where he takes all of the vaccine, boiling down his character down to the one dimensional attributes of "I'm old and selfish" yet again. Then he gets amnesia in one of the most ridiculous sequences ever of flying into the sky and getting hit by a plane and bouncing off some trees. My mind was already sort of wandering by that point.
Then Smithers goes and works for Dick Cheney, with a series of fresh, original political jokes.
Then some more super cartoony crap that made no sense and I barely remember.
Then Mr Burns realizes that hate keeps him alive or some shit. Then he plans to take revenge on the town by covering it with a giant dome, in a reference to the movie. Note: reminding me that the Simpsons movie was ever made is not a good decision.
The episode should have finished at that point, but then they kept going with something else I can't remember.

Give up, guys. You've already destroyed your legacy with more bad seasons than good ones.

Nothing can beat the badness of "Once Upon a Time in Springfield". Once you see that, all the episodes you're talking about now will look like comedy gold. (my opinion of course. Maybe some like it, but it's my most hated episode).

I haven't seen it, although I dare to think of any episode that could beat the horror of the shitpile of an episode where Homer apparently invents grunge. That episode is offensive to me on every single level of decency.

Hmmm... I think a couple of my favourites:

Fat Tony: "Now, who wants to sleep with fish?"
Children: *gasp*
Fat Tony: "I brought the Finding Nemo towel."

Homer: "Relax, we're in a electric car"

Homer: "Mmmm... Something...."

That is also great, when in episode that Simpsons visit Brazil, Homer is terrified by a phone bill and tries to get some cable into a power line (bad explanation, hope you get it).
