Rise, topic! Rise from your grave like Zombie Jesus!

Since us Americaners just got the Season Two DVDs, I skipped over mid-page 2 on so as not to have anything spoiled for me when I get Season Three (American release date: When aliens destroy Old New York).

The commentaries for "Xmas Story" and "The Honking" are top-notch.


I forgot who mentioned it earlier on, but they were absolutely correct in stating that the big advantage the S2 boxset had was more Billy West. I'd like to add they get bonus points for not having less of anyone else!

Can any of you lovely Region Tooies give your friends on the other side of the ocean a few hints of what's to come with Season Three - IE, upcoming commentators, etc? But no spoilers, please!

My topic. It lives!! Muah-ha-ha-ha-ha....

Maurice Lamarche and Tress MacNeille will join in on several episodes. Both do a great job.

Billy and John does some in-character commentaries as well. Funny stuff.

Other than that it's the usual assortment of writers, directors, producers and whatnot.

Awesome! It will be nice to hear from even more of the voice-over crew, as they're usually very entertaining.

Billy and John in-character is always brilliant, and I'm glad to hear there's more of it.

Thanks Teral!

Billy West. That guy is amazing. Firstly because of all the voices he does, and secondly because hes a very interesting guy. DiMaggio is a close second for me. I love the beat-box thing they do together.

What episode is the dueling Professor's thing that everyone was jawing on about in?

I thought the commentary for PYHOMS was great. I can't comment on many of them because I only own the DVD set for season 2  frown

Yes! My favourite part is when they do things with character voices. Also, I've decided that Billy West and John DiMaggio are ten times better when they are together than when they're apart. I don't like when they have "new" people doing them and feel obligated to talk about whatever that person does. Pssh.

David Cohen

The funniest commentary was the Deep South, when they were making noises to sound like they were hitting each other  tongue

My favorite so far is the commentary for "Brannigan Begin Again," if only for the part where John DiMaggio catcalls like some Jerry Springer audience member "He's gonna service her sexually!" when Zapp and Kif show up at Planet Express.

I voted David X. He's got a comic's delivery.

I recall year's back when either PC Gamer or Next Gen featured a cover with the unintentionally hilarious title of "Gaming Gods". And shots of then up and comers like "American McGee", "John Romero", "That other guy who made doom", "Peter Molyneux" etc... and seeing this thread made me dream, nay, fantasize about the cover to DVD Review or perhaps Premiere. "The Gods of DVD Commentaries" We could have the David X Cohen on the cover of a magazine at last along side the king of movie commentaries that "Director of American Beauty Sam Mendes" etc... ahh a man can dream...

no, I really shouldn't.

Dammit! I'm not voting! I want to vote for John DiMaggio, Billy West and David Cohen as all of their contributions to the commentaries are fantastic. Especially John DiMaggio's laughter (contagious), Billy West's voices (very funny) and what David Cohen has to say (sometimes funny, almost always interesting).

Ok, i've been listening to the commentaries again, the part during part 2 of AOI1 from where they're in the accusing parlor until the begining of act three when John does a really deep voice. I was laughing hysterically, and I had my headphones on so my roommate didn't know what was going on.

The commentary for 'A Pharoh To Remember' is particuarly cool... makes the episode seem a lot better.

I liked the Mars University commentary. I never found the Snooty House people falling off their boat funny until I heard David X. Cohen say "Hehe, it's motivated by nothing." Now I can't help but laugh at that bit.  smile

^^^ Hey, someone mentioned DVD Review! I used to edit that, you know.  big grin

Anyway, my favourite episode commentaries were the ones where I got mentioned*, which IIRC were 'The Series Has Landed' and 'Where The Buggalo Roam'. The first of those, I was actually on DVD Review at the time, and came out of the viewing room going "Holy shit, they just mentioned me on the commentary!" (Nobody was impressed. Bastards!)

^ The mention in 'Buggalo' was for ANSTATMAW when they were talking about Amy's fan following. Admittedly DXC did call it "Can't Get Enough Amy Wong", but his intent was clear!  wink

 laff Truer words haven't been spoken in this thread in a long time.

One of the best things is listening to John and Billy talk about the inspiration for the various voices. Like John's inspiration for Curly Joe or Billy's inspiration for the Martian chief, Singing Wind. It can't be described, you have to listen to it yourself.

"Lee Chang, hit him in the armpit." See, I told you you had to hear it yourself.

I love that Curly Joe anecdote because it's such an elaborate story for a character who only really has one line of dialogue!

(BTW, I have a lot more to say in this thread, but I'll save it for tomorrow)

Thought I'd give Rich Moore a mention. Billy, John and David often make up the best points of the commentary, but Rich's role is often underrated. Without him, they'd be missing a heckling target, for one:

(from A Pharoah To Remember)
Rich Moore: (very slowly) Hello and welcome to another Futurama commentary. This is episode 317, it aired March 10th...
John DiMaggio: 2002.
Rich Moore: ...2002. Thank you.
Billy West: Could you be more specific?
Rich Moore: I will try.
John DiMaggio: (laughs)
Rich Moore:I am Rich Moore, supervising director of the series.
DXC: And you used up the whole damn credits.
(laughter)

(from Futurestock)
Rich Moore: I am Rich Moore, supervising director of the series.
John DiMaggio: Ahh, Rich, you suck! (laughs)
Tress MacNeille: Woo!
Rich Moore: Well...John! That's just...plain mean!

 He also does a very funny David X Cohen impression.

I thought I'd ressurect this topic in order to make an observation about what I call The Eric Horsted Effect:

 Why is it that nearly every time a commentary has Eric Horsted in the roster, everyone seems to have less to say? Listen to the commentaries for The Lesser Of Two Evils, Bender Gets Made, Bendless Love, Bending In The Wind and A Taste Of Freedom, all written by Horsted, and notice how many more awkward pauses there are than in most others.

What's going on?! Does he just have a silencing  aura about him or something?  confused
