First, this is not the appropriate sub-forum to discuss this topic; the Konoha TV: Channel 12 forum, found here, is the place for such a topic.
As for the actual subject of the thread, the traits that make a season of Digimon the "best" or "worst" are completely subjective, so I shall instead state which season are my favorite, which I actualyl have done before.
The first season of Digimon,Digimon Adventure, is still my favorite, because it seemed to have one of the most epic plots and simply was something new at the time that I watched it. Plus, it had some of my favorite villains in the franchise (namely, Vamdemon and the Dark Masters).
My second favorite season was season five, Digimon Savers, because of its departure from the art style and themes of the first several seasons. In this season, the main characters were much older than those of the previous seasons, even adults and parents had Digimon partners and went to the Digital World, and it also had the only genuinely evil human charatcer in a Digimon series thus far, Akihiro Kurata, who therefore is my favorite villain after Vamdemon.
After those seasons, season three, Tamers, is my third favorite, and seasons two and four, Adventure 02 and Frontier, respectively, are my least favorite of the completed seasons. I liked Tamers because it was slightly darker and more dramatic than the first two seasons, but Savers better executed that idea in my mind, and Adventure 02 and Frontier were too similar to Adventure for them to be my favorites.
The current season, Digimon Xros Wars, is still running, so I shall wait until it is finished to decide where it is among my favorite seasons, but it currently is tied with Digimon Savers for second place after Digimon Adventure.
And if anyone is planning to re-watch these series, I absolutely recommend that you watch them in their original Japanese language with subtitles, as I found the English dubbed voices to be extremely poor in comparison to the originals, plus a great amount of content was censored from the series when they were brought over to the United States, a process of which I absolutely do not approve. Fansubs of the older series can be found around the internet, so I definitely believe that it is worth the time and effort that would be spent downloading them to see them in their original and uncensored form.
At a recent charity auction, avid fan Jarvis Mayweather nabbed an autographed photo of Anne Hathaway with a winning bid of two-thousand dollars.
Jarvis was mistakenly given a photograph of legendary race horse Man O' War.
Jarvis wans't bummed out about it though. In fact, he seemed pleased as punch as he walked up to Anne and said, "I think they gave me a stock, unsigned photo on accident..." and she gave him her autograph on the spot.
The day Anne Hathaway auditioned for the role of Catwoman, the casting director was confused, saying, "I thought we were casting for Catwoman, not the Mr. Ed movie?"

The director couldn't say no.

Hathaway Puns Again:
Reporter to Anne Hathaway: How do you find the motivation to keep getting up in the mornings and putting in grueling hours on the set?
Anne to reporter: I just know it has to be done, so I brush my coat off, shake off the flies, and saddle-up.
Reporter to Anne: Nice pun.
Anne to reporter: What's a pun?
When Anne Hathaway needs to get get up early and prepare for a role, she doesn't reach for the 5-hour Energy. She doesn't go for that oversized energy drink. She does not make a run for Starbucks.
When Anne Hathaway needs that extra get-up-and go, she reaches for the only brand she can trust:
Anne Hathaway is often praised for her focus and determination when prepraring and acting out her roles.
When asked for her secret--whatever it was that brought her attention to laser-like precision--she said it was simple: Blinders.
Anne Hathaway: Hero:
A shocking turn of events this afternoon as a mounted police officer had his horse stolen.
Anne Hathaway was taking a stroll through the park and offered her assistance.
Moments later the policeman, riding on the strong back of Anne Hathaway, caught up to the would-be horsenapper and brought him to justice.
Eye-witness statement as follows:
"It was like something out of a movie: the cop has his horse stolen but then, like a miracle, this other horse comes along out of the wild! Never saw anything like it...amazing."
When Anne was asked to comment she simply said, "Neigh."
Anne gets Punk'd:
On MTV's PUNK'D, Ashton Kutcher thought it would be a goof to swap Anne Hathaway's lunch.
When all he found was an bag of apples and salt lick he thought someone had already beat him to it.
One hour later the MTV crew filmed Anne Hathaway eating her lunch.
Here is the shocking video:
(Anne is dressed in white and brown)

Christian Bale, an avid horsebreeder, instictively took out his batarang and started to put her down when Christopher Nolan interjected. At first he said, "She's not a horse! She's not a horse!" But Bale, wise on the uptake and no spring chicken, called his bluff and began clubbing her over the head. It was only after Nolan showed him her leg and claimed it wasn't broken that he stopped.
Bale was quoted as saying, "And to think I almost killed a perfectly good horse... boy, is my face red."
The History of Hathaway:
When Anne Hathaway was born 1982 the doctor on duty mistook her for a foal.
Anne remained in a small stable for three weeks while her loving mother breastfed a thoroughbred Colt, thinking it was her child.
Upon realizing the mix-up they exchanged the infants. When asked Anne's mother was quoted as saying, "I still can't tell the difference."
Not so much a joke as an interesting piece of Hollywood history.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway once auditioned together for roles in Charlies Angels.
The casting director threw them out at once, screaming, "This is a casting call, not a dog and pony show!"
This isn't the only place ive seen Frontier get a bad name. I'd like to know why this is everyones least favorite??
I really liked that season. Its only downside would be around the introduction of the royal knights till they are defeated. It took a long time to resolve that to the point where it seemed to drag. Some plot points needed to be established such as the RKs absorbing the rest of the data and Empororgreymon and Magnagarurumon being inexperienced. But the rest felt like a waste of time. This lasted 10 episodes.
A lot of things made it a close favourite. The 10 legendary warrior spirits, everything about them was awesome. The characters were cool. I enjoyed Takuya, Koji, and Koichi the most. This season had arguebly the best finale. Lucemon was presented as a great threat, and was dealt with appropriately(unlike ADV2s finale). The season also lacked partners. Some may see this as a negative point, but usually the kids are nothing more than being put at risk. Seriously, why don't most villains just try killing them instead of always treating them as sideline viewers. My main point is it was good to see the kids actually take control and fight for the cause. The season is pretty much digimon power rangers
I could go on and on about why I hate ADV2 if not for Blackwargreymon.
Ive heard that before, that it's lack of partners made it the worst. I also agree that towards the end it did kinda' drag on a bit. Another point I didn't like about this season was around the time Aldamon and Beowolfmon were introduced, it made the other characters pretty useless...
My favorites were, Adventure 01, Frontier and Adventure 02. Tamers being my least favorite, but I still enjoyed it.
Anything after that is nonexistent to me.
I have a big adoration for Frontier actually. It's a tie for my favourite, along with ADV1. The characters, especially Kouji and Koichi, had swell back-stories. I also like how they could transformed into Digimon, not just depend on their partners. I also like Kouji, he was kind of a bad-ass. Which is kind of rare in the Digimon universe, no? Grant there are others, but he stood out. I also liked the character developement. The theme was also the best opening for Digimon. The first 3 we're too repetitive. And the ones after Frontier we're something I couldn't watch for more than an episode
