It's a great commentary, humorous & informative when they stick to being screen-specific and/or talking about the film. Unfortunately, at least 1/3 of the running time is spent talking about the plot details of the alleged Pontypool 2 & 3. Far too much time is spent with writer/novelist Tony Burgess literally reading from his manuscript/treatment of the upcoming-or-not sequels.

My suggestion to potential listeners: once they start talking about these sequel plotlines, skip forward to the DVD chapter where the characters play "Sidney Briar is alive" over the loudspeakers (you'll know the scene if you've watched the film). Around here the commentators return to the present film, and a laugh-out-loud moment.
