William Shatner sitting down with interesting people, having an informal chat about life sounds rather campy but I have seen some of my favorites interviews on his show. Shatner's charisma seems to have an effect on the people he interviews. The contrast of watching a man who is usually rather self absorbed, reaching out and empathizing with his guest is enjoyable. Interviews with past Star Trek cast members have been especially memorable for me. Watching Bill have to face the realities of how his co-stars remember their interactions is priceless.
An intimate set with horse shoe shaped club chairs facing each other like Yin and Yang symbols. Expect the usual overly theatrical delivery, and mostly softball questions, interlaced with interesting personal details, and the occasional scandalous revelation. This is still Bill "Captain Kirk" Shatner but we see a side of him that we don't get to see when he is 'in character'. I'm impressed with how well he manages to listen and focus on his guest.
All in all I highly recommend it if you are trying to kill 30 minutes. ;-)
