Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 26

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

If "Clown in the Dumps" is not a classic on the level of season three's "Like Father, Like Clown," it was still a fitting, sweet conclusion to the story of Hyman and Herschel.

The Simpsons isn't what it used to be, and has lost some of its heart over its quarter-century.

The series has settled into a relaxed middle age, and one of the pleasures of tuning in at this late stage is the comfort of the familiar.

Oct 29, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The Simpsons always make you care for their characters. There is a sweetness inherent in the most egregious traits.

Nov 16, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

No pity laughter.

Sep 26, 2014 | Full Review…

One thing that can be said about the SImpsons is no one will ever accuse this show of shying away from poking fun at itself. In fact, that's one of the things it does best.

Sep 29, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I doubt anyone would argue at this point that The Simpsons' best days aren't behind it.

Sep 29, 2014 | Rating: 5.8/10 | Full Review…

The good times keep on rolling for Matt Groening's deathless creation.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 26

  • Sep 26, 2015
    Season 26 of The Simpsons is yet another lackluster season that barely delivers any laughs. Reflecting the drop in quality is the rather poor roster of guest stars, (Sarah Silverman, Nick Offerman, Willem Defoe, Sammy Hagar, Elon Musk, etc) which is pretty light. Also, a number of the episodes are recycled plots from previous seasons; such as Marge starting a food franchise, Homer joining a band, Krusty retiring from show business, and Grandpa retelling old war stories. However, there is an excellent Futurama crossover episode that's quite clever and fun. Long past its prime, The Simpsons isn't really trying anymore and it definitely shows in Season 26.

    Im so impressed with this season of this
  • Aug 09, 2020
    Oh yeah that's a great one
  • Jul 16, 2015
    I loved this show. It was innovative, funny and politically incorrect. I tuned in as often as possible to watch a Simpsons episode. ...and then it died. It was great until the 11th season, when all the writers had completely run out of ideas. Plots were gasping for air, characters were different and the sense of humor just isn't there anymore. The show's heart is gone. It's now in the "this week's guest star" trap and coasting along to it's eventual doom. Why is it still running if it's not funny? Oh, yeah, it's still profitable. TL;DR used to be great, now cringefully sucks. Still on air because it makes money.

    I agree with some that it might be a little off...but it isn't entirely bad. The show is not about triggering humor,emotions or satire, and it isn't even about the Simpsons itself. It is truly a series about families everywhere and the people around a certain community and the situations, both good and bad, that humans face with their personalities. Please don't over criticize it!

    I love the simpsons but I feel like it's gone on for much much much too long it isn't a quarter of what it used to be. The Simpsons should just take it's dignity and go off air while it still has some left.
  • Feb 27, 2015
    my favorite tv show of all time. I love the Simpsons. it as a lot of really funny jokes and etc. GO HOMER!!
  • Feb 26, 2015
    Ever since the 16th season, The Simpsons have gotten more dull. Once it reached the 20th season, it was no longer watchable. It is not the same sentimental show I enjoy watching reruns of. The producers should have pulled the plug on he show years ago.
  • Nov 02, 2014
    I have to admit as the Simpson got older they got worse and boring. They ran out of ideas. But this season was actually pretty good considering the more recent seasons. I would say it's worth watching.

    this shit will never end or die, fuck ya bay
