James Lipton interviews some of today's most talented actors, directors and writers. In the audience are students and famous alumni of the Actors Studio's master of fine arts program. The interviewees talk about their childhood, how they got started in show business, their early career and behind-the-scenes trivia. The interview concludes with a standardized questionnaire that includes such questions as "What is your favorite word?" and "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?" After that, Lipton and the interviewee move to a classroom where the M.F.A. students can question the interviewee directly.

I love this show! Fabulous if you're interested in acting and actors. I recently re-watched Clint Eastwood talking, from about 10 years ago (???), and guess who was in the audience, his incredible blue eyes shining out amongst the crowd of his fellow students? Bradley Cooper! It's a great, entertaining show, Kevin Spacey does great impersonations in his episode, Barbra Streisand is grounded and funny in hers, Paul Newman was thoughtful - and still handsome as ever, Al Pacino was very interesting. The questionnaire is always illuminating but it's the behind the scenes stories that hook me, time and time again.

One of my favorites about filmmaking, I've been watching since the early 2000s
