Tv Season Info

Series 10 of the animated-comedy stalwart features plenty of Homer's wild and crazy schemes, including a stint as a personal assistant to then-spouses Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, and sadly, the final performance by Phil Hartman (1948-98), who voiced C-list actor Troy McClure and cut-rate attorney Lionel Hutz. Hartman's last episode is a touching character piece in which Bart accidentally shoots a bird with a BB gun and, stricken with guilt, proceeds to take care of her soon-to-be-hatched eggs. Other episodes find Homer renaming himself Max Power, completing bodyguard school (the graduation tune is Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," naturally) and having a wild time in Las Vegas with Ned Flanders. But Homer manages to save the best for last in a terrific season finale in which the Simpsons take a last-minute vacation to Tokyo and end up stranded, forcing them to compete in a brutal Japanese game show for a plane ticket home.

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 10

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The cartoon clan that puts the fun in dysfunction returns for a 10th season... It is gratifying to report that, based on the season premiere, "The Simpsons" promises to remain the most reliable half-hour of laughs on television.

May 21, 2018 | Full Review…

"Lard of the Dance" was a great way to start Season 10, with the school year beginning and the kids returning to class.

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

This season also, for better or worse, has greater unity than many that came before.

Nov 8, 2017 | Full Review…

This tenth season is again, like the show's previous nine, chock full of cameo appearances by a flood of celebrities in another hilariously diverse set of twenty-three superbly written episodes.

Oct 31, 2017 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

... even after a decade, The Simpsons was unstoppable.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 10

  • Nov 26, 2016
    By any standard season 10 is a great season of TV, but in comparison to what preceded it, there's something off with this season in comparison, the humor relies a bit too much on pop culture and celeberties with some plots getting too outlandish and choppy. It doesn't help that Homer goes overboard at times with his selfishness. Season 10 is fantastic with mostly great episodes, some raking as all-time favorites, but I can't deny that it isn't as flawless as 2-9 with more emphasis on cheap humor.

    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
    Not as bad as season 9, but still very fast-paced and obnoxious, season 10 is a big hit-and-miss one, but there are quite a few quality episodes to pick from.
