What do Shiny & Dull mean?
The individual rankings given to each episode of The Simpsons are averaged out to give an overall ranking.
The episode “Weekend At Burnsie’s” was awarded 1 x Gold and 2 x Silver = Shiny Silver
The episode “Homer To The Max” was awarded 2 x Gold and 1 x Silver = Dull Gold
In the event of a tied score I average up because I'm nice.
"Treehouse of Horror X" 2 x Gold and 2 x Silver = Dull Gold
