Have actually never seen it but was planning on going back to it after reading the above. Should I not bother? A lot of the old writers came back on board for it, right?

There are some real stinkers in the first season. They even acknowledged that in Troy McClure's reaction to an old clip in the 138th episode. I can't find the clip so this will have to do..
When the camera returns to Troy,
he has a look of disbelieving incredulity on his face. He laughs
suddenly and observes, "They haven't changed a bit, have they?"

True. The early episodes, like Bart rallying the kids to stand up to bullies are "charming" enough but nowhere near the calibre of the stuff that came a few years later. " You could say he was caught red handed" ..groan.
That one sticks in my head because I sat down with my dad to watch it hoping he'd finally see what is so great about The Simpsons. Of all the episodes to choose.
