The Simpsons - Season 28 !!BETTER!!
The twenty-eighth season of the animated television series The Simpsons began airing on Fox in the United States on September 25, 2016, and ended on May 21, 2017. On May 4, 2015, Fox announced that The Simpsons had been renewed for season 28.
The Simpsons - Season 28
This season includes the 600th episode of the show, "Treehouse of Horror XXVII". On August 31, 2016, it was announced that an episode titled "The Caper Chase", inspired by Trump University, would air sometime in 2017; the episode aired on April 2.
This season also includes the show's first hour-long episode, "The Great Phatsby", a parody of The Great Gatsby. Other noteworthy events and gags include a Pokémon Go-themed episode ("Looking for Mr. Goodbart"), couch gags spoofing Robot Chicken and Adventure Time, an episode that shows how Homer learned to feel better with food ("Fatzcarraldo"), Mr. Burns hiring all of the Simpsons (except Homer) to become his "pretend" family ("Friends and Family"), and Glenn Close returning as Mona ("Fatzcarraldo").
This was the final season scored by longtime Simpsons composer Alf Clausen. This also marked the first season where former recurring guest star Kevin Michael Richardson joined the regular supporting cast, starting with the episode "The Last Traction Hero".
Season 28 is the twenty-eighth season of The Simpsons that premiered on September 25, 2016 with "Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus" and ended on May 21, 2017 with "Dogtown". The show's 600th episode aired during this season.
The Simpsons has been around long enough now that with each new season comes more astonishment at the series' incredibly longevity than its ability to make the audience laugh or to skewer some aspect of American culture in one way or another. It seems like those days are long gone. The Simpsons' sense of humor has certainly changed over the decades, and as the show approaches its thirtieth season, the degree to which things have changed seem to be what stands out most about the series. Well, that and the show's couch gag, which has become its primary selling point on a week-to-week basis. This time, The Simpsons become the cast of Adventure Time, which, for fans of Adventure Time will likely be the highlight of the premiere.
A variety show is a great plot device for a show like The Simpsons. It affords the program ample opportunity to bring in as many characters as it wants for a quick laugh, one liner, sight gag or ill-timed Arnold Palmer joke. But there needs to be something more than that, it needs a foundation to make the jokes resonate and to give characters reason to participate other than it being something to do. As far as season openers go, 'Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus' only gets it half right.
The 28th season of The Simpsons will also feature the show's 600th episode, which will be this year's "Treehouse of Horror XXVII." That episode will air on October 16 at 8 p.m. ET, while the season itself will premiere on September 25 at 8 p.m. PT.
The season premiere is called "Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus," during which Springfield will be completely burned down, and the Simpsons plead with Mr. Burns to rebuild the town. He agrees to, so long as he gets to produce his own variety show.
I'm pretty sure is something wrong with this show and Emby as in the same season there's another double chapter (21-22), named same as 12-13: 28x21-22 - La Casa Moho - Ciudad Perro.s28e21e22.mkvand showing it correctly on the season:
The Simpsons gets a lot of grief from fans and critics for its later years, but don't go full Comic Book Guy on the series just yet. Each and every season has some standout, memorable moments, and the show, while no longer in its golden age, has also recovered from its troublesome teens (the less said about seasons eighteen and nineteen, the better!).
This season, incredibly the show's twenty-eighth, The Simpsons has once again brought plenty of laugh out loud moments. Moments that are, frankly, a lot more woohoo than they are d'oh. Which is great: whatever you think of the show's more troublesome episodes, it's nearly impossible not to want to see the yellow family from Springfield succeed. Because when the show is at its best, it's capable of creating more memorable moments than nearly any other comedy on the air.
However, utilizing Howard K. Duff (Stacey Keach), Mr. Burns, Lindsey Naegle, and The Rich Texan as part of a Shark Tank spoof was one of the better decisions the show has made in the first half of season 28.
You may remember Keach (read that in Troy McClure's voice) from Up in Smoke, American History X, as television's Mike Hammer, or as the womanizing dad from the short-lived, underrated Fox sitcom Titus. On The Simpsons, he turned up as Howard K. Duff VIII back in season 12's Hungry, Hungry Homer, and has reprised the character several times since.
In season 28, Howard K Duff VIII returns, this time in the episode Havana Wild Weekend, as part of the fictional TV show Vulture's Nest, a spot-on Shark Tank parody. From Duff being "out" before the product is even pitched, to Kirk Van Houten's mangled proposal, to Naegle offering ridiculous terms for very little return, this little spoof was a bit of comedic gold. After all, Shark Tank is pretty ridiculous at this point.
FOX is first out of the starting gate in terms of announcing the premiere dates for its 2016-17 fall season. The fall premieres are largely populated by returning hits like Empire, New Girl, The Simpsons and more, but there are four new series bowing this fall on FOX: the feature-film spinoff Lethal Weapon, the baseball drama Pitch, *another* feature-film spinoff, The Exorcist (pictured) and the animated/live-action hybrid family comedy Son of Zorn.
