The SimpsonsOriginally created by cartoonist Matt Groening, "Our Favorite Family," has graced the small screen in one form or another for over 20 years. The Simpson family first appeared on television as the subjects of interstitial "shorts" on The Tracey Ullman Show in April of 1987. The Simpsons remained a staple on The Tracey Ullman Show for three seasons until they premiered in their own half-hour series, on December 17, 1989. With the help of Jim Brooks and Sam Simon, Matt Groening's cartoon family turned into an instant success.

    Set in Springfield, the average American town, the show focuses on the antics and everyday adventures of the Simpson family; Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, as well as a virtual cast of thousands. Since the beginning, the series has been a pop culture icon, attracting hundreds of celebrities to guest star. The show has also made name for itself in its fearless satirical take on politics, media and American life in general.

    Currently in its 21st season, The Simpsons has piled up over 440 episodes, over 20 Emmy Awards, a handful of music albums, countless endorsements and merchandise, and even made the jump to the silver screen in the summer of 2007 with The Simpsons Movie. And according to Matt Groening, "There is no end in sight."

    An improvement on season 15. However the biggest flaw this season has is the almost nonsensical outcomes of almost every episode have. AlmostAn improvement on season 15. However the biggest flaw this season has is the almost nonsensical outcomes of almost every episode have. Almost like they started off with a solid idea that bulit up well, then rushed to make the ending fit the time limit. A shame as allot of the episodes could have been much better with some more focus and structure.

    Overall:
    An average season, that's OK but still nowhere near as good as the earlier seasons.

    Side Note:
    Lisa was my favorite Simpson up until now, but this season really does make her into a whiny brat. Sure she was whiny before too, but most of the time it was justified. This season it's mostly whiny for the sake of whiny. What happened?
