A solid season. What a juggernaut this show is!
It has begun

"As an avid viewer of Simpsons over the years, I find myself trying to pinpoint when my interest in the show began waning. There are many people who point to a certain season as the one that was the "last good season." I have purchased every season so far as they have been released and I must say this season ten is the first that I haven't watched completely through in under a week. I can't exactly put my finger on why; just that the quality of the episodes just hasn't left me with the urge to keep watching this season. I'll either pick up a magazine in the middle of an episode or just stop watching all together. Don't get me wrong, there are still some good laughs in some episodes, but nothing compared to earlier seasons, and for the price, I am just not compelled to highly recommend this season of Simpsons."
One of the last great seasons of the show

"By the time that Matt Groening's The Simpsons reached it's tenth season, the show was still going strong, and the tenth season remains one of the last great seasons of the long running animated sitcom. In this season, Homer thinks he can make a fortune by selling grease ("Lard of the Dance"), as well as growing jealous of Thomas Edison and seeking to become an inventor ("The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace"). Marge develops road rage in "Screaming Yellow Honkers", which satires the SUV/mother craze, Bart cares for bird eggs in "Bart the Mother", and striking revenge when the kids of Springfield are put on an unjust curfew in "Wild Barts Can't Be Broken". It's Homer though who is in the best form throughout this season, as he also chickens out in donating a kidney to Grandpa in "Kidney Trouble", goes to Vegas with Flanders ("Viva Ned Flanders"), and becomes a reknowned artist, well, kind of, in "Mom and Pop Art". Also, the season ends with the family going to Tokyo, with naturally, hilarious results. This season also featured a heavy list of guest voices including George Carlin, Martin Mull, Elton John, Lisa Kudrow, Mark Hamil, Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Fred Willard, and Stephen Hawking. The only real flaw of the tenth season of the series for me personally was this season's "Treehouse of Horror" episode, which features the kids getting stuck in an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon, Homer buying a possessed wig made from the hair of the recently executed Snake, and Jerry Springer popping up as well. That aside, the tenth season of the Simpsons marked one of the last great seasons of the long running show, and with the eagerly awaited movie on the way, now has never been a better time to catch up with Springfield's first family."
The beginning of the end

"This is still pretty darn good comedy but for those who have followed the intricate humor of the Simpsons this season is the beginning of the slide into mediocrity that they are wallowing in today. Probably one of the last seasons I'll buy."
