Would anyone else be game for a club / regular series of rewatches of classic (single digit season) Simpsons?

I would be! I actually did this on my own during COVID -- it's amazing how some of the early episode feel so familiar (I know almost every beat) but simultaneously completely fresh and every joke hits like it's the first time I've seen it.

The first season is most definitely very bumpy - fortunately it's only 13 episodes.

Agreed, but there are some pretty funny bits in S1. The tabloid headlines in "The Call of the Simpsons" about Marge being in love with her ape-man husband always make me laugh, and Homer has some good lines in "The Telltale Head." Definitely rough around the edges, but way better than, say, S1 of
