I'd like to know people (aside from me) listen to the audio commentary as I assume many will be on this site.
 
I'd also like to know what commentary on futurama was the best and what things you like in the audio commentaries:

I think my favourite I can remember is 'Bender should not be allowed on televsion' as Matt Groening says 'Robots' really funnily. I like listening to people's own jokes in the commentaries and when they laugh at jokes on screen.

I like the commentry. It gives soome good insight to how the show is made. Some times when i watch the show without the commentry it seems odd.

i like the weird little song in The Luck of the fryrish and the ones where billy west and john dimagio do the commentries as Fry and Bender.

I LOVE when Billy and John do a character voice the entire commentary. In the bird-botz of ice catraz Billy did it all as Zoidberg

I love the commentay. I'll sometimes find the coommentary better than the episode.

My favorites were the commentaries where Billy and/or John were in character the whole time. there were two, I think.

The commentary for Bender's Big Score was great, it was just as entertaining as the movie itself and seemed to go by in half the time it actually was...

My favorite was in 'Bend Her' where ken keeler I think, tells the story of 'gay guy and the ghost'. It was hilarious.

I've seen Benders big score but I haven't got my dvd in the post yet, looking forward to the audio commentary.

@SP - Bird-Bot of Ice-Catraz (Billy as Zoidberg all the way through)
and A Pharaoh to Remember (Billy as Fry and John as Bender all the way through)

@ akachris - it was Mike Rowe  wink

I'm itching to get my hands on the DVD for BBS, it was the commentaries that got me hooked on the show. My favourite is probably Put Your Head On My Shoulder.

"..Harvard comedy writers think poverty is hilarious"

"The word underpants is 20% funnier than the word underwear"

"Why are Harvard comedy writers obsessed with Lincoln?"
"... his head is hilarious!"

"..so, Lincoln in underpants.."
"Lincoln's ASS in underpants!"
"Ken, I thought we agreed not to give away all of our writing secrets? All two of them?"

And so on  tongue

Does anybody know which episode where someone talked about the music being similar to an Enya song?

Somebody said 'sail away sail away'.

I think that's A Pharaoh to Remember again during the building montage, with Ron Weiner being the one singing "sail away" - although my memory might be playing tricks on me.

Also whoare the best people on audio commentary as well as everything else?

I like Mariche LaMarche especially in Amazon Women In the Mood with his account of William Shatner.

The "baaauuuuummm" playoff between Maurice and John DiMaggio in Spanish Fry makes me chuckle every time.

"I beat you to the baaauuum, John."
"..Awwwww..."

I always thought Rich Moore was severely underrated on those commentaries. It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for   wink

Gregg Vanzo: "Quite a few times he (Zapp) came back from Korea with his crotch fully exposed."
Rich Moore: "..so did I!"

Off the top of my head, I enjoyed Spanish Fry, for the "baauuuuum!", and Bender's Big Score's, for the Sopranos running gag, commentaries a lot.

I love watching the episodes with the commentaries on. Sometimes, I enjoy the commentary more than the episode. And, I agree with Otis about BBS with the commentary: it made the movie go by a lot faster, and the jokes enhanced the movie, to me.

I haven't watched too many of the commentaries. They're fairly interesting (especially compared to some other shows), but I usually just end up tuning out and paying attention to the episode.

I love the commentaries. I haven't watched all of them yet. I love the ones with Billy and John in character the whole time. They really should just animate that. That would be a great episode. I love Ken Keeler going on about underpants being 20% funnier than underwear so true.

Two words: chair gas. Second most hilarious randomness, the first being John saying "corn". But I love all of them with Billy and John in them. The others rank slightly lower.

The commentaries are great because they're random enough so that they are not boring but also contain some interesting info on the episodes.

I love that one, I was ROFL, and also the ones where they're in character, alright, I haven't said anything new yet, but I really love these commentaries, not just because they're hilariously funny but because I love finding every little hidden joke and reference in the episodes.
And now this made me remember the I Second That Emotion commentary when they were beeping at the spoiler scene, it was hilarious (I've noticed it way before I listened to the commentary and that made it extra funny when they started talking about it long before the scene) XD

I can imagine John D'imaggio being annoying in a cinema.

My single favorite commentary quote in in the "Bird-Bot Of Ice-Catraz" ep, where Leela says "Can't we just kick their asses?", and John DiMaggio quips "Speaking of asses, check out Leela's. Yee-OOOOOOOO-ow!"

Well, we've got three more movies to go, so here's hoping we'll get to hear commentaries from the remainder of the show's voice cast (Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Dave Herman, Frank Welker). It'd especially be interesting to hear Sagal, mainly due to the fact that she's the only one of the series "regulars" who only voiced one character throughout the show's run.
