** Opinions on Season 5 vary wildly. Some people find it to be good in its own right, some hold it at the same level as [[DorkAge Seasons 6-8]], and others find it SoOkayItsAverage.


Added DiffLines:

** There's a split between people who like "House Fancy". Some people like it because [[ThrowTheDogABone Squidward wins at the end]], while some hate it for either the [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence infamous toenail scene]] or for simply being boring.
*** The toenail scene itself is also a point of contention for similar reasons to the panda rape scene in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Homer vs. Dignity": Is it [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious]] or [[NightmareFuel just disturbing]]?
** "Toy Store of Doom" is also fairly divisive. Some fans enjoyed it for its interesting premise compared to other sixth season episodes, while others cited the frequent use of {{Padding}} in the episode.
** While "One Coarse Meal" and "A Pal for Gary" are usually regarded as the show's worst episodes, people are split on which one is worse: The former for having [[DesignatedVillain Plankton]] as the only sympathetic character in the whole episode and Mr. Krabs [[KarmaHoudini getting away with]] [[DrivenToSuicide driving Plankton to suicide]], or the latter for [=SpongeBob=]'s stupidity being taken UpToEleven and [[UngratefulBastard scolding Gary for saving his life]]?

** Gene Luen Yang's post-TV-series SpinOff comics, ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise'' and ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch'', are a very fraught topic in the fanbase, specifically the way they depict the later lives of the characters and the development of their romantic relationships.

** Gene Luen Yang's post-TV-series SpinOff comics, ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise'' and ''ComicBook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheSearch'', are a very fraught topic in the fanbase, specifically the way they depict the later lives of the characters and the development of their romantic relationships. Again, Azula's characterization as well as character arc, usage, and pathos (what to do with the character) in these comics are also subject to heavy debate and argument.


** Even ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' was exposed to this before the show even premiered with Knuckles' new character design breaking the fan base in two. Does Knuckles' new character design fit greatly with the character's strength capabilities or should they have kept his original design from the video games? While the show got positive reviews after launching, fans remain divided. Half will say the show is funny and smart, while the other half will say it's too childish and/or fast paced. Also, being a new character, [[CloudCuckooLander Sticks]] is a major BaseBreakingCharacter. Does she deserve her spot with the main cast? Are her jokes funny and original or forced and predictable? Is her voice cute or the MostAnnoyingSound?

** Thanks to {{Flanderization}}, a few [[BaseBreakingCharacter characters]] became this. Is Billy still funny, or just a one-note annoyance? And is Mandy's cynicism still charming, or is she so evil that she's an UnintentionallyUnsympathetic JerkSue?

** The old joke goes 'how do you find out the age of a Simpsons fan? Easy. Ask them when the show stopped being funny' the gag coming from the idea that Simpsons fans tend to say that the show's stopped being funny pretty much the instant they graduate high school.**

** Fans all got along fine, once upon a time. Now war rages between those who believe the show is as fun and sharp as it ever was, and those who think it's [[JumpingTheShark well over a decade past its use-by date]] and [[SeasonalRot new episodes are stupid and unfunny]]. Then there are those who acknowledge that the overall level of quality may have gone down but are satisfied if [[RapidFireComedy if it still makes them laugh a few dozen times an episode]].

** The later seasons of ''Ed Edd N Eddy'' had the kids attending school. Some fans thought it was a refreshing change of pace, others thought it was the series JumpingTheShark.

* The general quality of the Creator/DisneyToonStudios-made Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon sequels/prequels/midquels is often up for debate. Many agree that the vast majority of them are lazy cash-grabs meant to capitalize on the success of their predecessors, but which ones are the real stinkers and which ones are [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} "diamonds in the rough"]]? People cite movies like ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves'', ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'', ''Disney/ReturnToNeverLand'', and ''Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime'' are cited as the best ones, while movies such as ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeastBellesMagicalWorld'', ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDameII'', and ''Disney/MulanII'' are considered the worst. The rest of them are either liked by a vast majority, or hated by an equally vast majority. Either they're just bad movies that take a steaming dump on the original's legacy, or they're harmless movies that don't affect the quality of the first and can be enjoyable in their own right.

[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS12E5HomerVsDignity Homer vs. Dignity]]": One half says it's one of the worst episodes because the second half is shamelessly contrived and out of place and the other half found it hilarious. Other episodes involving bizarre plots, such as "Saddlesore Galactica", "Kill The Alligator and Run" and "Simpson Safari" have received similar criticisms.
