The format here is quite restrained. Being 40+ mins allows the subject some rambling time if they find a particularly interesting topic.
I started with the musicians and comedians episodes as I know more about them than the actors for the most part. Sam Jones has an easy questioning style although just occasionally I wish he'd probe a bit more.
The episodes look like they are filmed in one take and some of them might be especially with the bigger "names". It would be good to know if that is the case. I liked Aimee Mann sending herself up in that Portlandia episode and this is similar in tone.
Watching some of the other episodes now and particularly liked the Judd Apatow, Sarah Silverman, Jackson Browne and Matt Damon ones.
