Samm gives a good amount of info about filming the pilot. Michael and Kibbles don't really have anything to say. Arnold (who is just a fan of the show) says how good the show is and describes what is happening on screen as we see it.

Funny for about a minute, then it's the same joke over and over and over again. Okay, Mr. Rosso is a touchy-feely hippie, and the other two are jerks. We get it. In-character commentaries are rarely enjoyable, and this one is no exception.

I disagree with the previous review. I found it very funny the whole way through (especially if you make it to the end). Very enjoyable for a fan of the show.

Unusual idea, but as expected, has nothing to offer. Who wants to hear about other fans?

Feig prods Franco with his apparently standard set of questions for the actors, but Franco has little to contribute.

Not much in the way of enlightening info, but the track has a looseness to it that's enjoyable.

The girls giggle and gossip and generally just act very girly. Unlike some of the other "themed" commentaries on the set, this one is fairly engaging, if not particularly heavy on information. The odd thing is that they tend to talk more like junior high girls than either the college-age kids they actually are or the high school kids they play on the show. It has a real slumber-party feel to it.

They all talk about their experience working on the show and joke around. Highly recommended.

One of the more interesting commentaries in the F&G set, especially Jon Kasdan's anecdotes about being a young writer on the show.
