Durch die Nacht mit... (Into the Night with...) lets you be a fly on the wall as two interesting people get to know each other. "The series matches artists from different fields to spend an evening together in a city of their choice. The idea is to create a forum for artists to exchange ideas and also show them as real people."(IMDB). Guests have included Julie Delpy, Reggie Watts, Tori Amos, Crispin Glover and Ai Weiwei.

Tori Amos and Hauschka try out a piano in Berlin
Reggie Watts and Michael Mittermeier do improv in New York

Into the Night began in 2002. Here's their official site and Facebook page. There are also unofficial uploads of full episodes on YouTube, probably the best option for those outside the ARTE channel's viewing countries (Germany, France and Belgium, I believe).

For the indie-video-game-type people on Metafilter, one of these is with Chris Crawford and Jason Rohrer, although it's arguably kind of depressing.

For a moment, I thought this might be the best worst idea for a dating site.

Here's the beginning of the Gilliam/Landis one if you, like me, wanted to see it. The user has the rest.

They have to include Rick Dees solely on principle.

It is quite inarguably depressing.

Netherlands, too! When I turn on the French audio and the German subtitles I can almost make out what's going on just about 30% of the time.
