I watched all the episodes and was able to enjoy something about each interview. The longer I watched, the more I appreciated James Lipton on "Inside the Actor's Studio"....or even the verbal choreography of "My Dinner With Andre". These Brainwave segments lacked someone to contain the focus and create a cogent whole out of the discussion. I found myself annoyed with the tangents and the often overlapping chat that didn't serve the episode. The fact that the participants are experts or entertainers does not mean the necessarily have the skills to function in a lecture/discussion format.
I also thought the production values were woefully amateurish. I've seen local high school AV productions that were more polished. It was detracting to the aims of this series to have such poor quality technical work.
I can't recommend this series however if you have a particular interest in one of the participants, it might be worth seeking out their episode.
