The Simpsons

Through the early and mid 00’s there were still quite a few enjoyable episodes, but very hit and miss (I’d actually say that Seasons 13 through 17 were probably better than 10 through 12). Seasons 18 and 19 were more miss than hit, and should have been a good sign to wrap things up there. Given that there’s only been a handful of episodes I’ve enjoyed since going HD in season 20, that probably would have been a good time to finish (instead of dragging it out).
As it is I haven’t watched a new episode in a few years now (finally gave up about 5 or so years ago).


Didn’t they already say they were only going for a few more years then that’s it? I’m not sure what season there up to now.

They’re working on Season 35 now.

Oh, I honestly thought they were only up to season 33.

Simpsons return on Thursday 20 July 7Mate

07:30 PM The Simpsons Every Man’s Dream S27 E01
08:00 PM The Simpsons Treehouse Of Horror VIII S09 E05

Repeated at 1:15 Am and 1:45 AM


Well well well… Disney changed their tune? Bob Iger? Think it’s been reported lately studios being forced to go back down licensing path due to streaming exclusivity profitability issues.


Nice get for 7mate. Hopefully this means that Family Guy and American Dad will return with their new seasons. It’s been almost a year since the US premiere of these new episodes but this could also mean that 7mate could get back rerun rights for FG and AD once again.

All they could get is two lousy episodes a week?

Exactly. They’re all losing money except Netflix.

It’s a shame they can only get the lousy ones.


It being on 7mate doesn’t help, sandwiched between all the “bogan” tv. Imo it should go back to 7flix, break up all the blocks of black-ish, modern family, and Gordon Ramsay’s shows that were placed in to replace the timeslots originally filled by The Simpsons, Family Guy.

Watched a handful of episodes sporadically a few years ago but might have to watch some eps again - or at least check out the episodes highlighted in this article

The New Simpsons Canon

A guide to the episodes that will one day rank among the classics.

“Pixelated and Afraid”
Season 33, Episode 12
The kids send Homer and Marge to the Saffron Togetherness Center on top of Honeymoon Mountain to save their marriage. On the way, their car veers off the road and they find themselves lost in the wilderness, naked.

“Lisa the Boy Scout”
Season 34, Episode 3
In an attempt to hurt Disney, hackers play a series of horrible, ridiculous clips that allegedly never aired because they would’ve ruined the show.

“Treehouse of Horror XXXIII”
Season 34, Episode 6
The best “Treehouse of Horror” installment in decades includes a pitch-perfect parody of the 2006 anime Death Note and a Westworld homage that sends up fans’ obsession with the show’s golden-era episodes.

“Carl Carlson Rides Again”
Season 34, Episode 14
Meeting a woman at the bowling alley leads Carl on a journey through his racial identity. He ends up on the Black side of Springfield and learns the history of Black cowboys.

Season 34, Episode 15
Homer and Marge imagine how great their lives would be if they had never had Bart, only to then play out what it would be like if alternative versions of themselves took in Bart as a stranger.

Welcome Back To Springfield! “The Simpsons” Season 34 Streams October 11 On Disney+

Disney+ announced that season 34 of the hit animated series "The Simpsons” will launch October 11 on the streaming service. The new season of the Emmy® Award-, Annie Award- and Peabody Award-winning animated comedy takes fans back to Springfield for 22 more episodes of fun with the Simpson family. Season 34 also marks an exciting milestone – the 750th episode of “The Simpsons” titled “Homer’s Adventures Through The Windshield Glass.” The season features guest voice appearances from Fred Armisen, Anna Faris, Will Forte, Simu Liu, Lizzo, Rob Lowe, Melissa McCarthy, Jade Novah, Aubrey Plaza, John Roberts, and more.

The longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, “The Simpsons” exploded into popular culture in 1989 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie are instantly identifiable television icons. In the premiere, Homer is desperate to prove he’s not dumb and sets out to solve the case of the tortoise missing from the zoo. Season 34 also features a double dose of “Treehouse of Horror” episodes, marking the first time in the show’s history there have been two “Treehouse”-branded episodes in a single Halloween.

Is this an old press release issued by mistake? Season 34 is already on there. It is Season 35 which starts in October

The release was correct but is for global audiences. S34 debuted here on 12 Oct 2022.

Been re-watching some classic eps lately, that Brad Bird era (first 8 years?) along with Conan O’Brien (early-mid 90s?) and IIRC Bill Oakley & Josh Weinstein as showrunners (mid 90s?) all coincided for the best eps. The gags were just so on point, even today and the writing brilliant. Some great thematics and plots too. Probably the ones most repeated (in their original tape formats too) in the 2000s at 6pm on Ten.

Some personal faves:

“Homer, the section you’re supposed to be monitoring is on fire” … :notes: DO, DO DO, DO DO DO DO, DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO-DOO :notes: … “ARGHHH ARGHHHH” {staff writhing in pain} … “heh heh heh, clowns are fun-ny”. :joy:


Lionel Hutz: “can you imagine a world without lawyers” … {SHUDDER} :rofl: (and RIP Phil Hartman)


Bill and Josh ran the show from 1995 to 1997.

I remember for a long time they would only run Seasons 2-8 at 6pm then eventually but slowly they would go further past season 8.
