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.
