After 28 seasons, “The Simpsons” is still experimenting, and that includes its first one-hour episode, with guest stars Taraji P. Henson, Common, RZA and Snoop Dogg. The series may no longer qualify as appointment TV, but its writers continue to come up with ways for Homer to maintain his title as America’s most lovable imbecile.

Long live Walter White
Bryan Cranston isn’t done playing in the TV sandbox.

Church of the poisoned minds
Hail Marys may be in order before you watch even a second of “The Young Pope,” in which Jude Law plays an American pontiff who gives his blessing to gay marriages while providing Vatican City cardinals with every reason to convert to Judaism. Creator Paolo Sorrentino goes overboard in trying to shake up the Catholic Church, all but assuring that he and his miscast star won’t be invited to Bill O’Reilly’s house for Easter dinner.
