Tv Season Info

Series 6 opens with "Bart of Darkness," a clever parody of Hitchcock's "Rear Window" in which Bart believes he witnesses neighbor Ned Flanders killing his wife. Interestingly, the finale is also a murder-mystery spoof (this time of the "Dallas" episode "Who Shot J.R.?"), as cruel billionaire Mr. Burns is shot and everyone in Springfield is a potential suspect. Elsewhere, the Simpsons clan take a vacation to Itchy & Scratchy Land, but their trip to the cartoon-themed amusement park goes horribly awry when the animatronic characters turn into killing machines. The series also contains one of the show's most-touching episodes, "Lisa's Wedding," in which Lisa learns from a fortune teller what will happen to her friends and family in 15 years' time, and in the process grows closer to her father.

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 6

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

While airing such a summer-y episode at the beginning of fall must have felt like quite a tease... the episode is one of the show's best at depicting classic kids' behavior.

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

No matter how many times I watch it, classics like "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds" and "Itchy and Scratchy Land" will never lose their humor, and of course, there's always that good old "Treehouse of Horror".

Nov 15, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Watching Season Six inspires hope, rather than despair, for the upcoming season.

Nov 8, 2017 | Full Review…

... I'm running out of ways to say how great The Simpsons is...

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

By the time of its sixth season, The Simpsons had been around long enough to institute its own tropes, traits, and conventions, but the première episode of that sixth-season still displays a rebel streak.

... a mix of caustic satire and embracing humanity scarcely found outside of Renoir, Sturges, and Altman, least of all on primetime TV.

Nov 14, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Rolling into its sixth season in high gear, "The Simpsons" continues as the best justification of Fox's relative permissiveness. It's also arguably the funniest series on the air.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 6

  • Sep 09, 2017
    "Let us all bask in television's warm glowing warming glow." – Homer Simpson. Season Six is another of the perfect seasons of The Simpsons. There's not a bad episode in the lot, and the humor is outrageously hilarious. Leaving whatever tethers to reality it had behind, the show embraces the absurd with the family fighting off a robot uprising at the Itchy & Scratchy amusement park ("Itchy & Scratchy Land"), Homer becoming the leader of a secret society ("Homer the Great"), Bard discovering a comet that's headed straight for Springfield ("Bart's Comet") and starting a feud with Australia ("Bart vs. Australia"), and a gypsy giving Lisa a vision of her future ("Lisa's Wedding"). The writing is especially creative; full of a lot of clever satire and fun parodies. And in a particularly bold move, the season concludes on a cliffhanger, event episode, "Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part One)": a riff on the "Who Shot J.R.?" arc from Dallas. Additionally, there are dozens of celebrity cameos, including Winona Ryder, Dennis Franz, Anne Bancroft, Patrick Stewart, Mel Brooks, and a Cheers reunion. Incredibly ambitious, The Simpsons' sixth season continues to experiment and try new things.

    The Simpsons series 6 is one of those weaker series because they make very serious issue look like they're joke and that they are not that big of a deal when they are. So that is why this is one of those weaker series. But fortunately this series is saved by the best treehouse of horror episode and from episode 12 (Homer The Great) until the series finale (Who Shot Mr Burns Pt. 1). So I think you should watch this series if you can handle sensitive issues being a joke.

    Season 6 is the best season of The Simpsons, and one of the best seasons of all time. Of the 25 episodes 24 of them are 10/10 material each one being a classic of comedic and heart-warming story-telling. The one exception is the clip show which is entertaining but doesn't compare to rest, then again little does.
  • Mar 25, 2014
    Best season of the Simpsons!
  • Feb 14, 2014
    While the Simpsons remained TV's funniest, sharpest, and subversive show throughout the 90s, it really reached it's peak for this season. Classic episodes like Bart of Darkness, Lisa's Wedding, Grandpa Vs. Sexual Inadequacy and a whole slew more (including the best Treehouse of Horror installment) really makes this season stand out, and it's still highly re-watchable, quotable and enjoyable today.

    Funny at times but sometimes it isn't funny at all, show has been going on too long now i think, overall it is isn't too bad
  • Jan 05, 2014
    The show has started to improve even more, and its format hasn't got tiring. It's likely the best show on TV, period.
