It’s almost sacrilegious to say this, but I’d be willing to put this season up against this classic, immortal show’s best seasons. Perhaps it’s a reflection of the dip in quality that’s inevitably accompanied such a long-running show, but this season felt like a return to classic Simpsons, with the characterizations fully realized but still somehow finding new nuances, as well as interesting plotlines to keep the family busy. I think “The Simpsons” is the best television show ever made, and this is the first season in a few years that I genuinely loved. I highly recommend this, even for fans who may have moved on some time ago.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
