45 Favorite Episodes: 11

It's a universal truth that The Simpsons was better in its early days. It's also a universal truth that seasons one to thirteen of The Simpsons are some of the best television in history. But the at the very top of this comedy pyramid sits Marge vs. the Monorail, a biting half-hour about the Springfield family that is oft regarded as the show's finest twenty-two minutes. The Simpsons was best when its satire was strongest and there are few episodes more satirical than this that sees the town completely obsessed with the idea of getting a monorail (cue the epic song and dance number), but Marge is just not so sure. "Monoraillll!"
