My favorite episodes are (in no order except for the first one):

Bart Sells His Soul
$pringfield
You Only Move Twice (the Hank Scorpio episode)
Tomacco
A Star is Burns (The crossover episode with The Critic)
El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer

How sad is it that I didn't have to look up those episode names?

Do you know what the newer episodes need?  More Abe Simpson!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARXfQzfl9EQ
I saw a really creepy one recently where Homer dreamt about suffocating Abe. Apparently it was a Sopranos reference. Doesn't make it funny. Best case scenario, "Hey, I recognise that from a TV show. That makes it funny, somehow." Worst case, "That's a fairly tasteless joke with no punchline." Really uncomfortable.

I'd say  a few of the better episodes were:

Treehouse of Horror I
Treehouse of Horror IV
Treehouse of Horror V
Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk
$pringfield
Flaming Moe's
Homer at the Bat
Mr. Plow
Marge vs the Monorail
Whacking Day
Homer's Barbershop Quartet
Rosebud

And that's all that I can remember right now. I don't even think I got into the sixth season...

I'd say season 3 to 7 is when The Simpsons were at it's best.

One of my favourite shows of all time.

It's worrying how much I can quote from The Simpsons off the top of my head.

My dad has always been big on recording things, so, due to that I saw much of the first few seasons thanks to him. I was around 9 when I really got in to the Simpsons, and I too agree that they have gone quite down hill lately. Though, a few episodes are good. The show is completely hit or miss now in my opinion.

I prefer Futurama.
God, what a great show.

Why would the Simpsons sully a very good moment from The Sopranos, let alone one from 1999?

I imagined the story to go more like this.

I've seen bits of the Family Guy that are absolutely hysterical.  Unfortunately, I find Peter Griffen to be just about the worst TV character ever conceived.  They could kill him off and replace him with just about any thing or any one on Earth and it'd instantly become a fantastic show.  A talking fern would be a huge improvement.  Shame, because all of the other characters are great. 
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

I liked Family Guy for a while but it's so bad now, I can't bring myself to watch it anymore. Same actually applies to The Simpsons aswell, but I watched Them for a hell of a lot longer. Probably most of my life.

I think it was the late season 6 smothering... you know the one I mean.

I actually thought that was pretty funny to see in the Simpsons, especially since I don't really like the new ones that much so it was a bit surprising to see something good. Could be a bit out of place though.

I sometimes watch the Simpsons. I don't really watch any TV anymore at college though. When I do watch any tv shows, it's on the interert. I've watched the newer episodes on Hulu a couple times when I couldn't fall asleep. I think they are enjoyable, but not really that funny. They have a  couple good jokes, but overall the show just... changed too much.

The first few seasons defined my childhood.
