Fred Topel

Fred has never missed an episode of The SImpsons. It wasn't a plan, but around 20 years in he realized he'd always made it appointment television or set a VCR or DVR every Sunday. The streak remains unbrokne. As a film and television journalist, Fred also covered the press junket for The Simpsons Movie and interviews voice cast and producers of The Simpsons.

Experience

Fred was 12 when The Simpsons became a TV series so you can do the math from 1989. As the series developed its sense of humor, so did Fred develop a studied appreciation of satire through media studies in college. Since 1999, Fred has been a professional entertainment journalist. This includes covering the release of The Simpsons Movie in 2007. As a member of the Television Critics Association, Fred has also covered the series professionally since 2006.
