The Simpsons: Season 16 Episode List

Season 16 is the 4th season ran by Al Jean in what some refer to as the 'zombie Simpsons' run.  This season is, by far, the worst yet.  Unlike the past few seasons where there was still a semblance of mediocre consistency, the bottom just fell out for this season.  Somehow, the quality episode Don't Fear the Roofer occurs this season, otherwise there's barely anything redeemable about this set of episodes.  Hopefully, this is rock bottom for the series, and starting next season it starts its way back up.
