Tv Season Info

Surprisingly, the characters of Patty and Selma Bouvier (Marge's grumpy, chain-smoking sisters) are the focus of two of series 16's most-notable installments. In "There's Something About Marrying," Springfield legalizes same-sex marriage, which prompts Patty to finally come out of the closet (the episode was promoted with the teaser that one of show's characters would be revealed as gay). And in "Goo Goo Gai Pan," the Simpsons travel to China with Selma, who wants to adopt an orphan. The family, of course, also get into wacky antics that don't involve hot-button issues: Bart becomes a T-shirt designer, Homer teaches sports mascots how to dance and Marge enters a cooking contest.

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

And 15 years after its launch, "The Simpsons" is still a guaranteed laugh-out-loud riot.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

This works because the show also manages to continually tell fun stories each week.

August 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

While it's still tons of fun, some of the pop culture references are dated.
