Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 28

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Sure, The Simpsons is a cartoon that can bend the rules any time it wants, but if it throws all the rules out the window there's nothing of substance to attach any humor to and the show just becomes Family Guy.

The Simpsons was far from in top form as it kicked off its 28th Season this week.

"Monty Burns Fleeing Circus" is worth watching. It's worth watching twice, if only to get the taste of last season off your eyeballs.

At its best, The Simpsons is a much better cartoon than this.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 28

  • Apr 25, 2018
    Another barely mediocre season of The Simpsons, Season 28 delivers a few laughs and a lot of bland. The show hits the 600 episode milestone with the rather unspectacular "Treehouse of Horror XXVII" (one of the worst Treehouses). It also experiments with an hour-long episode (a series first, excluding two-parters), "The Great Phatsby": a Great Gatsby parody that's kind of clever. Additionally, there's a somewhat amusing parody of ESPN's 30 for 30 ("22 for 30") and a Christmas episode ("The Nightmare After Krustmas"). Per usual celebrity guest stars abound, including Allison Janney, Michael Chiklis, Stacy Keach, Natasha Lyonne, Patton Oswald, Lizzy Caplan, and Jason Alexander; though most are pointless. Grinding out generic, uninspired episodes, Season 28 of The Simpsons is a sad reminder of how far the show has fallen and how much has been lost.

    I'm a die hard Simpsons fan and will defend the show at all costs, but as we enter season 28 its hard to keep doing it. Unless some major twists start happening that change the shows core characters, you might see this viewer not checking in for the next episode.
