This was a tough call, but the Law & Order Bart vs Rebel Lisa of “Separate Vocations” won me over by a squeaker

“I still like him better than Steinbrenner” ... “Homer at Bat” is the first truly gonzo ep, harbinger of things to come...a million great bits that don’t really hang together as a story, like, say, “Radio Bart”

Also already tired of Homer-Gets-Fired stories, which meant this classic didn’t make the cut either

Weirdly, “Lisa’s Pony” was once a personal favorite, but already these Homer-Disappoints-Lisa stories feel formulaic. (“Lisa the Greek” also s3) Fear this does not bode well for future of rewatch... but c’est la vie

S3: Wildly out of whack ratio of stinkers to classics...1st family trip (WDC)...1st Fat Tony...Homer is slightly smarter than Lionel Hutz...for first time, struggling to name just a Top Four. Lemme know what you think:

Mitch, everybody, this has been a great discussion, but I gotta go outside and clean my bike! 🤓 Regardless of how this shakes out, hope everyone stays healthy and we all can make keeping great comics! 😘

And I think the naysayers would say the people for this haven't necessarily thought through all the unintended consequences of switching over to that kind of a system, and it's a bit more radical than folks are making it out to be.

How can retailers obstruct it? They can either participate or not. If Marvel & DC decide to go along, then stores won't have much of a choice, without handing off business to competing LCSs.
