Critic Reviews for The Simpsons: Season 27

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

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.

September 28, 2015 | Rating: 7.2/10 | Full Review…

The Simpsons are really double dipping too much.

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.

September 28, 2015 | Full Review…

"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

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

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.
