The Simpsons Season 11 (1999) – TV Review

The golden years are definitely over now and we are in a new era of ‘The Simpsons’ but that doesn’t necessarily mean the show has started a real down hill trajectory, it just means it no longer lives up to the ‘best ever on TV’ levels of some of the past seasons. The opening episode […]

The Simpsons Season 9 (1997) – TV Review

After the first couple of seasons were spent finding its feet, ‘The Simpsons’ experienced a golden age unlike many shows have ever managed, and it was incredible. However, season 9 spells the end of that particular golden age for me, and even then, it is still an incredible season of TV that just struggles to […]

The Simpsons Season 8 (1996) – TV Review

Following on from another huge success in Season 7, and this time not having a huge cliffhanger to build off to start the season, there was pressure on this season of the show to continue the good work, and luckily for us it does. Kicking off the season with a compellingly Treehouse of Horror episode, […]

The Simpsons Season 7 (1995) – TV Review

Starting with the high profile conclusion to the epic “who shot Mr Burns” saga, there was a huge amount of pressure on the show to see if it could live up to the hype of the thing it was parodying: the “who shot JR” from ‘Dallas’, and the show managed to deliver. Moving on from […]

The Simpsons Season 6 (1994) – TV Review

Everyone has their own opinion on this (and I won’t make the statement that this is THE best of the show until I have finished the rewatch) but this season of ‘The Simpsons’ is one of the best seasons of TV you could possibly hope to find. The variety in genres and focus between the […]

The Simpsons Season 5 (1993) – TV Review

The Simpsons is an institution and it is a part of pop culture that nearly all of us have consumed in some way, at some point in our lives. However, beyond that, it is also simply a really great show, especially in the first decade or so that it has been showing. In this season, […]

The Simpsons Season 4 (1992) – TV Review

The Simpsons Season 4 is an incredibly confident and well rounded season of comedy, that is willing to take risks and explore stories it previously wouldn’t have been able to. While I don’t think it is necessarily the shows best season, overall it is the perfect example of the groundbreaking and all encompassing appeal that […]

The Simpsons Season 3 (1991) – TV Review

In my opinion, this is the season where ‘the golden years’ of ‘The Simpsons’ begin. It is a season packed full of unique and fresh episodes, hilarious scenarios, and excellent voice work. The things that start here and will progress through the next decade of the show go on to define many elements of pop […]

The Simpsons Season 2 (1990) – TV Review

As the UK lockdown continues, for an indefinite amount of time, I am gradually continuing working through ‘The Simpsons’ on Disney Plus. Season 2 is a definite improvement on the first season, with the things we know and love about the show really starting to take shape, even if the season as a whole is […]

The Simpsons (1989) – TV Review

Following Disney+ finally releasing in the UK, and the fact that the world is currently in essentially a lockdown, I thought this would be a good opportunity to gradually rewatch the entire ‘The Simpsons’, starting here with Season 1. ‘The Simpsons’ is arguably the most worldwide recognisable TV show of all time, and it has […]
