I think the commentaries were both energetic, fun and informative. Some people were surprisingly funny, namely Mark Hamill and writer/producer Tom Martin, and even Julie Thacker to some extent.
There was plenty of useful information, especially in They Saved Lisa's Brain, which was also Marc Wilmore's first commentary, thanks to his previous work on the PJ's and his impersonation as the mayor who intimidated Matt Selman. It's only a matter of time until Wilmore becomes a regular participant, both as an occasional voice actor and writer/producer.
Mike Scully, Ron Hauge and Matt Selman had plenty to talk about. They were the most important and instrumental participants on the staff. It was enough to keep me thinking and to make me laugh a few times. Hopefully we'll be hearing more of them over the next 2 seasons' set of commentaries.

I'm not your friend-o
I haven't read a lot of this topic but aren't you surprised how much they seem to enjoy this season? I mean, they seem to laugh harder than in any other season before and sometimes with questionable jokes. What's so funny about Homer escaping the second time in Kidney Trouble and having a car falling on him?
How does Matt seem to be perfectly ok with everything in episodes like Maximum Homerdrive, which features really questionable Homer's characterization (the pills scene or Homer saying he is going to leave Marge to marry the waitress) and at the same time be so nitpicky about Homer's face morphing into Popeye's in Deep Space Homer or the fish winking his eye in War Of The Simpsons?
How can they say Viva Ned Flanders and When You Dish Upon A Star are fantastic episodes? Man, at least they kinda recognized the Loch Ness monster was a little too far in Monty Can't Buy Me Love.
I mean, I'm starting to find some of these episodes a little more bearable, but the enjoyment they seem to have with some things, like Homer's eye in Lard Of The Dance, I find it weird, compared to things that are funnier in previous seasons and they don't laugh or comment anything about them.

Hot, melting face.
I wish I could get to those hidden deleted scenes.
[seems to be a problem on every boxset that I've gotten that has them]

Sarcasm: the nerds' "sex"
Does anyone know about any "easter eggs" (apart from extra deleted scenes) on this set? Season 9 had two of them, the fifth audio track on "The City Of NY vs. HS" and the farewell from Oakley and Weinstein.

Finally got this and I'm still quite enjoying these commentaries overall, even though they don't seem to offer much real insight, Scully is pretty likeable and George Meyer's always interesting and entertaining, also Ron Hauge I like, no one seemed to mention much.
So Mike, are any of your daughters 18 yet?

Season 10 has some pretty good episodes. The Wizard Of Evergreen Terrace is a personal favourite of mine.

He obviously cares more about realism than characterization. As long as it could happen in real life (like Homer saying he wants to leave marry a waitress), it's ok. That's my image of him anyway. I don't think he'll like the elf scene in Saddlesore Galactica though. God, I really hope he's on that commentary, and doesn't avoid it like The Principal and the Pauper.
