"Orange Is the New Yellow" was an okay episode. They caught a lot of the flavor of Orange is the New Black, but they didn't skewer it.

If The Simpsons isn't the show it once was, at least it's in better shape now than it was even a few years ago. As much as Season 27 suffered from the usual flaws, it also had some truly memorable moments.

You heard it here, there are still plenty of laughs to be had.

So, yeah, if this maybe wasn't the best episode they've ever done, or the funniest, or what have you, it was still moderately amusing enough to watch at dinner time and get a chuckle or two out of.

"Every Man's Dream" is just a series of bad jokes at the expense of the show's characters, all in service of a cheap grab for momentary notoriety.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 27

  • Jul 18, 2016
    The downward spiral of the once great animated series The Simpsons hits new lows in Season 27. Surprisingly anti-family, Homer and Marge separate in the season premiere and by the finale Marge chooses prison over being with her husband and kids. The episodes aren't all this awful, but most of them are pretty bland and don't offer many laughs. As usually, dozens of celebrity guest stars make appearances, including Adam Driver, Kristen Bell, David Copperfield, Kaitlin Olson, Sofía Vergara, and Natalie Maines, but they're not really used very well. And the show continues to take political cheap shots while propagating its liberal agenda. Well past its prime, The Simpsons is coasting on fumes in its 27th season; settling for anything that's the least bit mildly entertaining.

    They poked fun at SJWs but there were not that many laughs.

    The 27th season was a really bad season

    The later episodes of The Simpsons are not very good. But this season is just The Simpson's at its worst (in my opinion). The season starts off with yet another Homer and Marge fight. Homer in this episode is so unlike able. This is how I feel about Homer through this season. Like the episode later in the season "Barthood", where we see a teenage Bart throwing a party. Bart catches Homer smoking weed with Chief Wiggum. Another flaw with this episode is that we see yet another time travelling episode. This has been done so many times before. I think that's the problem with the later episodes of The Simpsons, they are showing nothing original. All the episodes have been done before. In this season we also see another episode where a Simpson goes to jail. I have to give it to the Simpsons though because I really think they pulled this episode off. Overall season 27 of The Simpsons was not the best so I'm gonna have to give it a one and a half star.

    Another chip in the road of the Zombie Simpsons downward spiral, I wouldn't recommend Season 27 to any Simpsns fan unless you wish to ruin your love of the show altogether.

    Although The Simpsons at the moment almost every year to deteriorate, this season was a lot of good moments.Section 21 of the final scene (Homer's final speech, and that he has participated in presidential elections) is the time in vain. Section Barthood was a successful parody of the film Boyhood. Year featured many new, and multi-session was successful.

    Season 27 of the Simpsons is brilliant, hilarious, and will leave people of all ages wanting more.

    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.
