Simpsons Season 10 Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Okay hear me out, Simpsons is usually not my go to show. I tend to catch it one occasion especially on very late nights. I know it is popular because its funny, but I really don’t see much humor in these. Anyway, its okay to watch when there’s nothing else on and you need to veg out. I feel like Homer after watching this show.
