Every Season of Jon Favreau's 'Dinner for Five' Available on YouTube

December 21, 2012

Dinner for Five

Now we normally don't talk about TV series here at FirstShowing since movies on the big screen are our first priority. But there are some TV shows that just fit right in our wheelhouse. "Inside the Actors Studio" and others dive into films from an angle that just hits the spot for cinephiles. One such series is Jon Favreau's IFC series Dinner for Five. The unscripted series features four actors, directors or producers sitting down for a meal with Favreau and having candid discussions about the entertainment industry including personal stories, insights into the business side of film and TV, and some truly great conversations. View one below!

Here's one of my favorite episodes with Eddie Izzard, Will Ferrell, Louis C.K. and Illeana Douglas:

The list of guests Favreau had on the show over five seasons is extremely impressive and makes for some great television. Big names behind the camera like J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane, Martin Scorsese, Richard Donner and Frank Darabont appeared and acting talent like Ben Affleck, Carrie Fisher, Kevin Pollak, Sean Astin, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman and Zooey Deschanel take a seat as well. There are over 60 episodes, and all of them are legally available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure right now. Since the Complete Series DVD set has been discontinued, this is best way to watch. Enjoy it!

I find it fascinating, but that's just because I love listening to people talk about the film industry and how they got there.

Who told you these were " legally available" ? They have been on Youtube for years, but are you saying IFC has uploaded these? If so, why are so many of the episodes in a clearly-taped-off-the-TV-quality? Youtube has a lot to offer, also thousands of motion pictures, all not legally uploaded. Just search by name or something like "Full Movie".
