on the dvd commentaries, we never see Katey Segal, Phil LaMarr, David Herman and some other minor characters ??? That suck?

Is there a reason ? I would love to hear katey segal.

Yeah, me too. They might have them in future commentaries, though. I'd love to hear Katey in the commentaries for "The Sting", for instance. Honestly, I can't see how they can make commentaries for that episode without her.

Yeah, I think Katie should definately be on the commentaries for 'The Sting', and 'Leela's Homeworld' at the very least. The commentaries have already been recorded though, if only there was a way of finding out now...

I would assume that Katey Sagal is too busy to sit down and watch a whole season back to back. Those voice-actors that you mentioned are all pretty popular and assumably are very busy (no offense to John DiMaggio, though...)

Recording commentaries would take quite a while, I imagine. It's just like "The Simpsons": none of the voice-actors do commentaries for those episodes. It's a sad time constraint.

But taping 2-3 episodes take about 1 hour, so it's not like it'll tip their weekly schedule. Billy West does a lot of audio commentaries, and he is quite busy as well.

I can't imagine "Leela's Homeworld" or "The Sting" without Katey, then again I couldn't imagine them doing "A Leela Of Her Own" without her, and look what happened.

I always wondered about katey, she is the second lead character and she has never done one commentary. I can't really see how she can be that busy, is she in anything elese but this?
Or.....she might want money for it, like Arnold does. He got $70.000 for the Total Recall commentary and it cost more than the actual DVD production.

Katey Sagal also does "8 Simple Rules Blah Blah Blah..." I would assume that real-life acting takes up quite a bit more time than voice-over work. No offense, but I don't think that Billy West's workload (while considerable and impressive) would keep him from doing an hour or so of commentary. Remember, he only did 2 episodes on the Season 1 DVDs. (I don't know about the others, because lousy Region 1 players....::shakes fist:: )

I thought Billy West did more than 2 episodes of commentary.
