‘Grampy Can You Hear Me’ is a classic set up and comes close to being a real stand out Simpsons episode. However, despite just falling short of that, it is still a real charming episode and has some strong laughs.

‘The Old Blue Mayor She Ain’t What She Used to Be’ is not just a fun examination of Homer and Marge’s marriage, but it is also a political commentary of current times as Marge’s rise to power as Mayor relies on the selfish, knee-jerk reactions of an easily swayed town.

‘Gone Boy’ is a really strong narrative and perfectly utilises Bart’s relationship with Milhouse and Sideshow Bob. Has some strong laughs and character moments.

In general, this was a strong season for modern The Simpsons, and while the show is far from its original consistency, it is still a good watch.

In this season, the show reached the remarkable achievement of being the longest-running scripted series in primetime television by number of episodes.

Rating = 3.5/5
