Tv Season Info

The Simpsons family go on a number of journeys this series, starting with an early episode in which they travel to England and encounter a number of British celebrities: Sir Ian McKellen, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling and then-prime minister Tony Blair. Later, Homer and Marge decide to ditch the kids for a romantic getaway, but as their plans keep getting ruined they bounce from Miami to Atlantic City to Niagara Falls. Elsewhere, Lisa becomes school president, Homer is attacked by a bear, Milhouse temporarily moves away, Marge becomes an alcoholic and Mr. Burns buys up Springfield's media outlets.

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 15

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Like most of the recent editions, this year's is about two-thirds brilliant.

Top Critic

Now nearing the 14-year mark, this series still revels in its irreverence.

Jan 31, 2018 | Full Review…

In short, it's what you'd expect form a season of "The Simpsons." It's edgy enough to not be boring, but it's not so in-your-face obnoxious that you can still enjoy in on early prime-time television.

Aug 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Most Emblematic Episode of the Season As a Whole: "I, (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot," because BattleBots was popular in 2001. This episode aired in 2004.

It's all about Homer, of course, but it's the more peripheral characters that bag the best lines...

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 15

  • Nov 26, 2016
    It's hard to think nowadays but in 2003 and 2004, The Simpsons almost returned to its former glory. Due to its spot as a mid-era season, season 15's upswing will sadly not go down in many history books, but season 15 succeeds in nearly every regard with impressive gags and original, and often sweet stories. I-D'oh Bot, Simple Simpson, and Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore are great examples of season 15's strengths, and there are a lot of other underrated gems here too.

    The last good season of The Simpsons
  • Jan 30, 2014
    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 season started out fantastic, continuing their hot streak from season 14, but overall, the season has quite a few boring clunkers, and the good episodes are sadly scattershot after the beginning.
