It’s no secret we’re big fans of the golden age of The Simpsons here at Pajiba. My and my generation’s entire vocabulary and collective frames of reference were shaped by five or so (or anything between nine and twelve, depending on who you ask) seasons of Matt Groening’s (and Brooks’s, Simon’s, Mirkin’s, Oakley & Weinstein’s, and Scully’s) transcendentally brilliant creation. It’s likely that we’ll never see anything of its like again. It’s entirely plausible to think that that kind of quality, a perfect synthesis of humour and cultural commentary, truly was one of its kind. Which is why I never get tired of posting golden era stuff here. It’s simply impossible to get sick of appreciating the wealth of material available in those seasons. The depth and breadth of it is insane to ponder, with just bonkers volumes of unassailable excellence jam-packed into twenty-minute episodes. To wit, a Twitter prompt that asked users to pick their choice of all-time best joke in The Simpsons. With a category as broad as that, you really could keep listing moments for far, far longer than we have space for here. Nevertheless, here is a small sliver of some of my favourites that popped up in the thread:
