GQ (Australia) - - CONTRIBUTORS -

Die-hard Simp­sons fan?

An un­der­state­ment. There’s a photo of me aged nine with all my mem­o­ra­bilia – it cov­ered my en­tire bed­room floor.

Why has it re­mained so pop­u­lar all these years?

I think it’s never been afraid to be out­spo­ken po­lit­i­cally or cul­tur­ally, so it has al­ways stayed at the fore­front of the con­ver­sa­tion.

You’ve seen an ad­vance screen­ing of Dis­en­chant­ment - hit or miss?

Dif­fi­cult ques­tion! It’s def­i­nitely for fans of a cer­tain kind of Groening’s work – more Fu­tu­rama than The Simp­sons.

What are some of your other TV top tips right now?

Killing Eve, Sharp Ob­jects, and Pose. I’ll also keep rec­om­mend­ing Halt and Catch Fire un­til some­one stops me.

Net­flix or Stan?

Cur­rently it’s Stan. It has a great mix of block­busters and in­die films, and get a lot of TV shows the same day as the US.
