I'm enjoying these shows and these interviews are cool. It's kind of weird. It looks as if George tapes a whole lot of extra episodes. I know he taped a bunch at TIFF that probably have not aired but I wonder if there are more that he taped throughout the past few months. Are these the only 2 weeks when these extra interviews air, as the next 2 weeks are repeated episodes or will there be more weeks in the summer where we will see more all-new interviews.

One more question that I've always had. Usually George has one new interview per show during the actual series. They usually keep the guest on until the end of the show and then George says "That's time" and closes the show with he guest still there. Now for these episodes, where they have two interviews on each show. After one guest is on, He just thanks them and says,"We'll be back" and then comes back with Guest 2. This first interview could have been taped a few months ago for a regular interview. Does George film 2 endings when closing every interview. One where he says "That's time" and one where he says "Thanks for coming" as he might not know if that interview will have its own episode during the series or be a double interview duringa "best of" wek or a week like this week?

Yes Sam you got it there are two endings. Sometimes it's because the first airing is before an event the guest is promoting so that event gets a mention then they tape a version without that mention for the re-aired interview. Sometimes George has another question for the guest after the interview is over and they tape for the second ending but include the new question. I think the fresh interviews you are referring to will all be aired by July but they are planning special weeks of extended interview shows and weeks with themes to be played over the summer.
