MaxRennSeason 11 has some real crap, but it gave us Treehouse of Horror X, Pygmoelian, the episode where Barney gets sober and Behind the Laughter, so I give it a passing grade.

I also liked "Beyond Blunderdome" and "Bart to the Future".

I think that "good" is a reasonable grade for the season, and that it was the last "good" season. I don't think that anyone is under the impression that the classic era extended past 1997.

Simpsons season 11 is why we have Donald Trump.

There were tiny little cracks appearing in season 6 (Bart vs. Australia, while not a bad episode, was a portent of things to come), but I'd still put it down as great. I'd peg 3-5 as their peak, but I wouldn't argue hard against including season 2.

This is a Family Guy season 11 worthy joke.

TheZapperSo what was the episode when you knew it was over?? Poochie?? Homer joins the navy?

When they went from spoofing New Kids on the Block to having the backstreet boys making guest appearances.

I haven't seen a good episode since Day of Future Future or something like that.

Received my Seasons yesterday and have been on a marathon. Season 1 seems much better than I remember even with the animation being what it is even though it seems to improve greatly halfway through the season. The last episode seems to be the one I didn't care much for. Halfway through season 2 and I'm starting to remember a few episodes I watched on TV so long ago which I assume on reruns now they're on a much later season. Marge seems to be my favorite Simpson so far.
