INTERVIEWED MATT GROENING, P74
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.
