Tv Season Info

"The Simpsons" has had its fair share of unusual episodes over the years, but series 23 features possibly its strangest installment yet: "Moe Goes From Rags to Riches," which tells the long history of Moe's bar rag from medieval times to the present day (and with Jeremy Irons providing the mellifluous voice of the rag, no less). Another high-concept episode spoofs the movie "Inception," as the Simpsons family enter Homer's dreams in order to find out why he's wetting the bed. It's also a season with a number of great Lisa stories: She writes a young-adult novel, founds an online social network, falls for an intellectual (Michael Cera) and receives some life advice from Lady Gaga in the finale.

Critic Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 23

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The Simpsons have been in a critical tailspin for quite some time now. The season premiere of the 23rd season doesn't change much.

... still had plenty of laughs thanks to the ridiculous cast of characters that is The Simpsons.

Negative points for the 43,583 guest stars...

October 25, 2017 | Full Review…

The Simpsons has remained as quintessentially American as anything else produced by our culture, recognizing our dual capacities for greatness and folly, for cooperation and chaos, for weakness and resolve.

November 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The real question is whether The Simpsons can still bring the funny. All signs point to yes with big neon asterisks attached.
