We Asked ChatGPT Which is the Best Episode of The Simpsons


We asked ChatGPT which was the best episode of The Simpsons and we were pleasantly surprised.

10 years ago we published a post about our Top 25 Simpsons episodes and although over the years we think our tastes have changed we have thought about updating the list but then we had a different idea.

ChatGPT is all the rage at the moment and we decided to ask it the most important question “What’s the best episode of The Simpsons?”

So this is basically what AI has come up with and what it recommends as the best episodes of our favorite animation. Interestingly Seasons 4 and 8 seem to be the most popular.

This is the exact response given by ChatGPT.

“As an AI language model, I don’t have personal opinions, but I can provide you with some popular choices for the best episodes of The Simpsons, based on various rankings and surveys:”
