While I still liked it then and now, this is certainly the first season to see a change in direction and a big dip in comedic quality.
Many cite The Principal and the Pauper as a “jumping the shark” for the show. While a fascinating twist, it was rather dumb.
The Treehouse of Horror Halloween special was still good.
Along with other moments like Mr. Burns meeting Fidel Castro.
Homer pretending to be Ganesh and is found out for his deception because “Ganesh is graceful” and he is not.
Mountain Dew? No thanks, I’ll take the crab juice.
Gyms lead to ridiculous mountain climbs.
The Garbage Man Can!
And I liked their parody of religious cults.
