Critic Reviews for The Simpsons Season 29

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

As The Simpsons kicks off its 29th season, there's literally nothing the show can attempt that it hasn't done at least once already.

Oct 2, 2017 | Rating: 6.2/10 | Full Review…

The Simpsons has earned the right to experiment a little bit when it comes to the kinds of stories it wants to tell and how it wants to tell them.

Oct 2, 2017 | Full Review…

This season is off to an amusing start, but it doesn't come on with the abandon of classic years.

Oct 2, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show has done a gimmick episode as a season premiere more than once, and they're perhaps intended to snag viewers with a few unambitious pop culture references.

Audience Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 29

  • May 13, 2018
    this season of the simpsons has been amazing. ever since the season 13-14 days the show has been in slow decline, but it seems that this season the show has made a return-to-form that i never saw coming. i tip my beanie to you, matt groening! yeah!

    this season of the simpsons shows a slight but distinctive return to form for the series. so far, episodes of this season have struck a chord with me that most other post-season 10 episodes just can't seem to hit. i've been consistently excited for each and every episode as they come out and definitely look forward to the rest of the episodes. and... wow. they brought back bleeding gums murphy... made me cry on the spot. great job writers!
