Season 11 did have "Behind the Laughter".
"Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner?" and "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses" aren't bad episodes either. And there seems to be a fair amount of love for "E-I-E-I-D'oh" and "Pygmoelian", too.
But there was also the aforementioned "Saddlesore Galactica" and "Kill the Alligator and Run". I wouldn't have much time for "Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder", "Missionary: Impossible" or "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge" either, or for Christmas episode "Grift of the Magi" despite the late Gary Coleman.
And, of course, there was "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily". Maude really didn't have to be killed off, IMO - especially as Maggie Roswell did return to the show a relatively short time afterwards. Plus, it's one of the least bearable Jerkass Homer episodes, along with season 10's "Homer Simpson in: "Kidney Trouble"" and "Viva Ned Flanders"...
