As others have noted the first few episodes suffer from some bad graphics / style decisions. On the plus side each episode is 25 minutes and features a director answering pretty much the same list of questions each time. Those questions are kept off camera and so the full run time is of the director answering questions.
Ivan Reitman, Francis Ford Coppola, Barry Levinson, Rob Reiner, George Lucas, Brett Ratner, John McTiernan, Michael Mann, Bryan Singer, Milos Forman, John Singleton, Ron Howard, James L Brooks, Paul Greengrass, Martin Campbell, Ridley Scott, Mel Gibson, Jon Favreau, Luc Besson and the Farelly Brothers round out the first 2o episodes of the first season which is all that I've seen.
Firstly the graphics and presentation gets better as the series continues. The quality of the content more than makes up for the presentation.
The episodes I enjoyed the most were the ones from directors I haven't heard much from directly. These were James L Brooks, John Singleton, Luc Besson. Always good to hear from Ridley Scott and George Lucas too. I will look up the rest of the series as a chance to hear directly from the director is always worth the time to watch.
