Tv Season Info

Series 7 contains a number of fascinating, experimental episodes that find the creative staff trying to break new ground. "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" has fictional C-list actor Troy McClure (voice of Phil Hartman) giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the show. "Treehouse of Horror VI" contains a segment where Homer gets trapped in an alternate dimension, which is depicted via CG animation. And "22 Short Films About Springfield" is a series of vignettes focusing on the show's minor characters, including quack doctor Nick Riviera and local hayseed Cletus. There's still room, of course, for a number of straightforward stories about the Simpsons family (or at least, as straightforward as a show this surreal gets), such as Bart's attempt to get cast in a blockbuster movie based on the comic-book character Radioactive Man.

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 7

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Say what you will about the result of who actually shot Mr. Burns, the investigation running throughout "Part 2" was loaded with laughs.

June 13, 2018 | Full Review…

... consistently, the funniest show on television.

November 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Such classic shows as "Radioactive Man," "Bart Sells His Soul," "Lisa the Vegetarian," "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular,"... and further expanded the series' impeccable grasp of both hair-trigger humor and genuinely evocative storytelling...

October 31, 2017 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…

... this is the season where Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein took over as showrunners, and they wanted The Simpsons to go back to feeling more realistic, with an occasional outlier.

October 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The publicity, hype and fan attention from the genius cliffhanger of "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" was at fever pitch, but the show's status as a self-aware comedy meant that pretty much any answer would be a good one.
