Bart is a limited character. To me, the best episodes were the early Homer-centric ones, where he was a none-too-bright everyman, not the total buffoon he's become.

When the show first got started, it was about Bart, while now, you can have entire shows where bart is almost invisible. At times now, Lisa is more important to the show than bart as she serves as a good contrast to homer.
