* The commentary for ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' is done by Patricia Quinn (Magenta) and Creator/RichardOBrien (Riff-Raff) and is both informative and rather humorous.

* Director Tamra Davis did ''Film/BillyMadison'' by herself, adding [[TearJerker "We love you, Chris!"]] in tribute to the now-deceased Chis Farley.
* Director Tom Shadyac recorded a solo commentary track for ''Film/LiarLiar''. He's pretty serious, but he also tells a really nice story about taking Justin Cooper, who played Max, to meet Jim Carrey at Carrey's house. Apparently, Jim and Justin got along really well.

** The commentary for ''Film/AVPAlienVsPredator'' with Paul W.S. Anderson, Sanaa Lathan, and Lance Henriksen is more entertaining than the film itself.
* ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'' features a surreal but hilarious fake commentary, where Will Ferrell talks about hookers and gets drunk with the director. Then, two actors who didn't get cast in the movie show up, and attack Ferrell. Then, after that, Lou Rawls, of all people, shows up!

* ''Film/{{Bound 1996}}'' features the Wachowskis along with the woman they consulted for the portrayal of lesbianism. Jennifer Tilly also shows up in the last 20 minutes. The track is notable for being the last time the Wachowskis did anything related to promotion for one of their films.

* ''Film/DodgeballATrueUnderdogStory'' features two commentaries, the first of which featuring Marshall Thurber, Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller arguing for 40 minutes whereupon all three exit and the commentary is replaced with that from the ''Film/TheresSomethingAboutMary'' DVD. The second (serious) one is an Easter Egg.

* Amy Heckerling and Cameron Crowe have such a good time talking about ''Film/FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'' that the commentary goes on 20 minutes longer than the movie.
** For ''Film/AlmostFamous,'' Crowe brings his Mom along (as she was the inspiration for Frances McDormand's character).
* Danny [=DeVito's=] commentary for ''Film/TheWarOfTheRoses'' is pretty standard (and quite good) except for several parts where he starts complaining about an unnamed movie composer, living near the mansion where the exterior shots were filmed, who kept calling the police and complaining about noise from the production. Each time, [=DeVito=] stops ranting after a few seconds and apologizes to the audience.

** The track featuring Brad Pitt, Ed Norton, and David Fincher together in a room is highly amusing, as the actors frequently gang up on the director for laughs but also respect his craft and the info he wants to share. Helena Bonham-Carter is dropped in via solo clips, some of which have priceless anecdotal information. Most notably, the very English HBC had '''no idea''' how old American children are in grade school, so the "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school" line meant nothing to her when she delivered it.

** In fact, Edgar Wright himself states on the Director's Commentary that his aim is to have "More commentary tracks than Lord Of The Rings". If you include ''Series/{{Spaced}}'' and ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', he's pretty much done this.

** The commentaries from Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Phillipa Boyens are fascinating, and will keep you highly entertained and informed over all 11+ hours of the extended trilogy.
** In the commentary featuring Elijah Wood (Frodo), Andy Serkis (Gollum) and Creator/SeanAstin (Sam), Sean Astin completely takes over the conversation several times to rattle on about how great the story and production values are to the point that you can hear Wood and Serkis shifting uncomfortably in the background. This is easily the weakest of the assorted commentaries. While the others are a mix of good humour and fascinating information, Wood, Serkis and Astin spend most of their time praising each others performances.
** The commentaries featuring Dominic Monaghan (Merry) and Billy Boyd (Pippin) are utterly hilarious. Especially when Billy keeps waxing lyrical about his feelings for Minas Tirith

* ''Film/LoveActually'''s commentary gets off to a rough start -- Creator/HughGrant arrives late (about 30 minutes into the film)! Later, Creator/BillNighy and director Richard Curtis realize that young star Thomas Sangster (who was 13 years old at the time) is legally unable to watch the movie, which is rated 15. In the end it's quite a nice mix of funny/informative and mutual-admiration gushing (which is to be expected considering the writer/director and cast). It's also worth it just for Hugh Grant's snark about absent co-star Colin Firth, his fake nemesis. (After Richard Curtis had commented on what a nice close-up Firth had in a love scene: "I'd just assumed you'd cut it in from one of his other movies.")

* Barry Sonnenfeld's commentary on ''Film/MenInBlackII'' falls under the awkward self-congratulation category, in addition to Sonnenfeld seemingly having no charisma whatsoever. The commentary for the [[Film/MenInBlack first movie]] is unique in that Barry and actor Creator/TommyLeeJones are sitting in front of the movie ''[=MST3K=]''-style, and at various points even draw on the movie to point things out. These ''[=MST3K=]''-style visuals are also used in the commentary for ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}''.
* Conversely, Barry Sonnenfeld's commentary on ''[[Film/GetShorty Get Shorty]]'' along with the Making Of features reveals just how much of this [[RealitySubtext movie was made exactly how]] [[ShowWithinAShow the movie in the movie]] was made, especially how ''Creator/DannyDeVito'' was basically playing himself.

* "Comedian" Carrot Top has a commentary track on ''Film/RulesOfAttraction'' in which he watches the film for the first time. He keeps making inappropriate jokes throughout the film... and then a woman gets drugged and raped by frat boys. The sheer bizarreness of listening to him try to backpedal on his statements is gold. Also notable is the fact that the DVD packaging tries to keep this a surprise: The list of special features includes "Bonus commentary by a MYSTERY GUEST!", with the text being accompanied by a small carrot icon as the only hint.

** Apparently every single person in the film besides the band themselves has died by the time the commentary is made. A few times the person making this claim is challenged on how they know that, and the gag is even extended to when they visit Elvis Presley's grave.

* In the "More Entertaining Than The Film" category: ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar''. It features the director, Ashton Kutcher, and Seann William Scott. After about twenty minutes, Seann says "Do you guys want some beers?" Hilarity Ensues.
* ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982'' features an all-time classic commentary track with Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and John Milius. Schwarzenegger and Milius start the track by introducing themselves with each other's names, then the future governer of California adds, "And if you believe that, then you probably also believe there are little Richard Simmonses running around! Neeyaahaahey!" He goes on to utter such pearls as, "I get laid a lot in this movie!", "Is that kid wearing lipstick?", and--when a [[{{Fanservice}} belly dancer comes on screen]]--Arnie going, "Oh, I remember ''her''."

* Joel and Ethan Coen typically avoid commentary tracks, but ''Film/BloodSimple'' has one by fictional artistic director Kenneth Loring, written by the Coen brothers themselves, that essentially spoofs commentary tracks themselves. Loring generally alternates between waxing rhapsodic about the framing of certain shots ("the human face... we all... have one"), telling rambling off-topic stories, and offering up spurious details on how certain effects were accomplished (he claims a scene where two characters are driving in the rain at night had to be filmed in reverse with the actors hanging upside down -- the fact that their hair doesn't appear to be standing up is attributed to copious amounts of hair spray).

* The best part of ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' on DVD is listening to Robert Pattinson's thinly disguised hatred for Edward Cullen. ''Eclipse'' furthers this when he and Kristen Stewart repeatedly mock everything about it. It's implied that they're both high in order to cope with watching the movie.
* For the commentary for ''Film/{{Superbad}}'', Judd Apatow brought his 10 year old daughter to the recording of the commentary, with Jonah Hill in the same room. Seth Rogen, in another studio via audio uplink, taunts Jonah by running his mouth off for as long as possible. Jonah loses it and goes on a rant about why Judd brought a 10 year old girl to the commentary of such a dirty movie. Judd then storms out and isn't heard from again. It's unclear how much of this was staged.

** Also, they'd tell stories about what happened on the set. One partiularly amusing tale is about when they were shooting a scene and an old lady wandered on set and began telling dirty Creator/{{Disney}} jokes.

* ''Film/{{Predator}}'' has a terrible commentary from director John [=McTiernan=] that is nothing short of a chore to sit through. [=McTiernan=] sounds utterly disinterested, muttering his way through the film, audibly sighing and lapsing into long periods of silence. It's a shame, as some of the things he manages to bring himself to say are actually fairly interesting.
** [=McTiernan=] delivers an equally boring commentary for ''Film/{{The Hunt for Red October}}''.

** ''Film/GoldenEye'' featured not only a commentary with director Martin Campbell and producer Michael G.

''Baaaaa''ction! (saying [[VitriolicBestBuds the DP's a long time collaborator of his]]) and scenes from a Monaco shoot where Campbell drops a ClusterFBomb (the day had been so busy he couldn't help it).

* Joss Whedon's commentaries for his ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episodes are occasionally enlightening, but always funny. His commentary for "Objects in Space," however, is very philosophical, as the episode was inspired by the writings of Jean-Paul Sartre. His commentary on "Restless" is almost required to actually understand what the hell is going on. And anywhere he appears with comic Seth Green (Oz) is hilarious.
** In ''Series/{{Angel}}'' Season 5, Joss, Alexis Denisof (Wesley) and Creator/AmyAcker (Fred) were all on the commentary track for the extremely grueling TearJerker "A Hole in the World". The performance is so powerful that all three are struck silent for a large part of the show, at the end of which Joss jokes it was the "[[WorstWhateverEver Worst. Commentary. Ever]]."
** Creator/NathanFillion and Alan Tudyk did commentary for "War Stories", which ends with Fillion inviting Tudyk to watch porn with him. No, really.

** The (not Joss) commentary for the ''Buffy'' episode "Superstar" pretty much tells you nothing you couldn't figure out by watching the episode.
** Jane Espensen recorded commentary for some of the episodes she wrote for in ''Buffy'' season 3, which provide a decent insight into the production process and what it was like to write each episode [[ShowRunner alongside Joss Whedon]]. The one for the episode "Earshot" in particular includes a brief note about how she's [[ViewersAreGeniuses surprised more people don't seem to laugh]] at the fact that [[WrongGenreSavvy Giles assumes]] Buffy's skin irritation is maybe due to something like "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint using a new fabric softener]]", considering her [[ChekhovsGun recent exposure to a demon's blood]] and the fact that "[[NamesToRunAwayFromVeryFast they live on the Hellmouth]]!"

** With regards to the revival series box sets, Series 1-4 had cast and/or crew commentaries for every episode. The post-Series 4 specials had to go without. From Series 5 onwards, only a handful of episodes/specials from each season get commentaries. Sometimes the choices of which episodes get them and which don't are odd; from Peter Capaldi's tenure, fan punching bags "Kill the Moon" and "Sleep No More" received commentaries, but not his massively-scaled {{Season Finale}} multi-parters!

* Every single episode of ''Series/RedDwarf'' (except for Series X) gets a DVD commentary track from the entire cast for that whole series. The exception is Series V, which Craig Charles (who plays Lister) couldn't show up to the commentary recording for due to being ill -- so instead the other actors all ''imitate him'' and mercilessly make fun of him while he's not there. Series V and VI also include a fan commentary on the most popular episode of each series. The one for "Back to Reality" had someone from the studio sitting in to make sure the fans didn't just quote the entire episode as it happened.

* ''Series/{{Deadwood}}'' has commentaries sprinkled over a number of episodes with various pairings of directors, writers, and actors. It's very interesting hearing the contrast in commentating styles among the different parties. Ian [=McShane=] and Creator/TimothyOlyphant are clearly at a loss, and mostly just comment on trivial things like their hair and how tall the various actresses are.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'''s first season has a commentary for every episode, each of which include at least four people and all of which feature series creator Dan Harmon. Generally, those who accompany him are two or three of the actors (usually those whose characters had the greatest impact on that episode's plot) and occasionally the episode's writer or director.

* ''Series/BreakingBad'' jumps back and forth between being incredibly amusing and informative as all the cast and crew riff on each other giving anecdotes, and awkward congrats sessions. In particular, creator Vince Gilligan is such a nice man that he pretty much makes sure to congratulate everyone for everything.
* The commentaries for ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' are good in different ways. The commentary for "A Study in Pink" (Episode 1) has Creator/StevenMoffat, Creator/MarkGatiss, and Sue Vertue (Moffat's wife and co-producer of the show) having a lengthy, informative conversation about all the various Doyle references they snuck in and what the casting process was like. The commentary for "The Great Game", though, is Gatiss and stars Creator/BenedictCumberbatch and Creator/MartinFreeman (who hilariously, has to leave halfway through) joking around, trying not to label-drop all the excellent clothes they get to wear, and generally having a very good time.

The commentary for "A "[[Recap/SherlockS01E01AStudyInPink A Study in Pink" Pink]]" (Episode 1) has Creator/StevenMoffat, Creator/MarkGatiss, and Sue Vertue (Moffat's wife and co-producer of the show) having a lengthy, informative conversation about all the various Doyle references they snuck in and what the casting process was like. The commentary for "The "[[Recap/SherlockS01E03TheGreatGame The Great Game", Game]]", though, is Gatiss and stars Creator/BenedictCumberbatch and Creator/MartinFreeman (who hilariously, has to leave halfway through) joking around, trying not to label-drop all the excellent clothes they get to wear, and generally having a very good time.



* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has plenty of good ones, the main attraction being the one by George RR Martin on the episode of each season he wrote himself. They also feature the showrunners/writers, directors, actors, producers, designers, etc. Lots of great notes on adaptation issues, relations between the actors, and insights into the characters. The child actors even get their own commentary, and start it off by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t92ukx0A2fk singing along to the main theme!]]

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "The Last Night Of a Jockey" has probably one of the most hilariously awkward commentaries ever courtesy of an ''extremely'' cranky Mickey Rooney who proceeds to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR4YhS_Ru_I antagonize his interviewer]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm1b8vbfBdc&feature=youtu.be&t=22s like the world's biggest "crotchety old man" stereotype]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6SPnetR2UE every step of the way]], and at one point even claiming no one is going to listen to said commentary because the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VCceZUuV8g younger audience]]" is "watching...[[TheInternetIsForPorn sexy things]]".

*** The DVD features even more. Doug and Rob have seperate ones that both start with warnings that everything the other says is a lie, then go on to include many of the same anecdotes and jokes, though they do strongly disagree on whether a certain scene needed music. Rob also goes into quite nauseating detail on the leg injury he suffered during the shoot. There's also one with Bargo and Mike Michaud with some neat tidbits about running the site on top of the film itself, though after an hour they completely run out of things to talk about and their comments become more and more random.

* The commentary for episodes of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' are odd in that series creator and multiple character voice actor Seth [=MacFarlane=] uses his normal speaking voice for Brian, a talking dog, so he appears to be doing the commentary in-character. He also flat out ''refuses'' to do the voices of any of the characters he voices (Peter, Stewie, Quagmire etc) during said commentary. Usually with (hopefully tongue-in-cheek) threats of violence against whoever suggested it.
** Only if someone asks; if the fancy strikes him, he'll throw in a line or two in the voice of Peter and Stewie. Although he usually tells them to fuck off in character. Also Seth Green sounds nothing like Chris Griffin or Neil Goldman (his two main voices) so he has to be asked to drop into character. Mike Henry (Cleveland Brown, Herbert) does his voices without being asked.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' commentaries are well known for being raucous, free-ranging affairs with the various voice actors cracking jokes and telling funny stories about the show's production. They also often feature the voice actors doing imitations, and when a voice actor does imitations they're ''really'' good. The Season 5 DVD set features John Dimaggio and Billy West doing a recurring sketch as Tracy Morgan being interviewed by Jay Leno (Jon Dimaggio's Tracy Morgan impression is disturbingly good).
** Ones involving John Dimaggio (the voice of Bender) are particularly good, thanks to the actor's obvious huge enjoyment of the show shining through.
** The show's future was still in question for years, and in the commentary for "Anthology of Interest II", one of the guys asked "WhatIf [[HeartwarmingInHindsight we had a fifth season]]?"
** Some of the episodes have bonus commentary tracks focusing on a particular subject; "Jurassic Bark" has one with eight of the show's writers describing the writing process, and "A Farewell to Arms" and "Game of Tones" both have animator commentaries with a group of directors and animators discussing the production process.

** "The City Of New York vs. Homer Simpson" has two tracks, because the writer of the episode, Ian Maxtone-Graham, missed the first recording. As a treat, Dan Castellaneta joins in on track two. A number of season 3 & 4 episodes also have similar EasterEgg commentaries with showrunners Al Jean or Mike Reiss when one of them missed the main recording.
** Of particular note is "The Cartridge Family," where Mike Scully (then the show's head writer) calls up the notoriously reclusive John Swartzwelder (who has credit on this and 58 other episodes) who refuses to appear in the commentaries despite his massive contributions to the show. Matt Groening is stunned that they were actually able to trap him like this, and at the end of the call he denies that he's the real Swartzwelder.
** Most cast members have also joined in commentaries, with Yeardley Smith probably doing the most. Guest stars have also appeared, including Kelsey Grammer, Joe Mantegna, Creator/JonLovitz, Gary Marshall and Creator/StanLee.
** Also notable is "Another Simpsons Clip Show," where they're stuck with almost nothing to talk about, so they instead take viewers through the process of how an episode is created, from beginning to end. This ends with a CrowningMomentOfFunny when after the full elaboration of all the work done by a ton of people, David Mirkin notes that the very final step is when the fans declare it the worst episode ever.

Season two lacked commentaries and by the time they returned for season three, Parker and Stone had gotten jaded on the concept of doing commentaries and opted to just do "mini-commentaries" that last for only a few minutes at start of each episode, that only briefly scratches the surface of each episode.

While the commentaries are usually reserved for what are considered the best or most significant episodes in the series, there's a commentary for the much-derided episode "Critters".
