Tv Season Info

Episode-length parodies abound in the 18th series of "The Simpsons." In "Springfield Up" (a spoof of the "Up" documentary series), a filmmaker chronicles Homer's life from childhood to the present day. "Yokel Chords" finds Lisa tutoring seven children á la "The Sound of Music." And "24 Minutes" presents a crossover with another show that was a hit on FOX at the time, as "24" protagonist Jack Bauer (voice of Kiefer Sutherland) deals with a threat in Springfield. In other events, Marge learns how to navigate the Internet and becomes addicted to a computer game, while Bart dates a 16-year-old girl voiced by Natalie Portman.

... the instance someone decided that Grampa should fall in love with Selma, "They'll Never Stop The Simpsons" became prophetic.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

If there's any program that could possibly recapture the magic of its best seasons, especially based on the two great episodes that ended the year, our bet is on The Simpsons.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 18

  • Nov 26, 2016
    Season 18 is better than season 17 with some more intriguing and fun plotlines, but season 18 shows signs of the Scully era with some scattershot stories and characterization.
  • 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
    It's an improvement from season 17 I GUESS, there's some actual good episodes, but the bad episodes are still bad.
