Al Jean, executive producer of The Simpsons and Harvard graduate in maths is interviewed in today's issue of Nature
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v448/n7152/full/448404a.html
(appears to be open access)
Complete with a list of the top 10 science moments in the series (overlapping with those chosen in Paul Halpern's new book (What's Science ever done for us?), and in my Guardian piece:

Interesting explanation of some maths jokes, too. The Simpsons also feature in the Nature podcast, if you can handle this kind of technology ...
