    P.S. I'm glad you agree. I've tried to find the tipping point myself, and I agree; season 14 seems to be the last season where I could pick any episode and still enjoy it. 15 still had a few gems, but the commercialization started kicking in in that season, I think.

    So when I recommend The Simpsons to people these days, I try to recommend seasons 4-14, and tell them to start watching at season 7 or so, because some people are put off a bit by the animation style of the earlier seasons.

      Yeah I was pleasantly surprised when I saw you'd said season 14 - I actually ended up taking seasons 14 onwards out of my shuffle folder because I was skipping more of them than I was watching. I absolutely love the old ones too (possibly in part due to nostalgia), but I see your point about the animation style I suppose...

        Oh no, same here... When I first started watching Simpsons, I couldn't really get into the older seasons (due to the style, but also the more muffled audio), but after I got into the rhythm, I now realize they have some of the best episodes among all of them!
