The Extras are a Mixed Bag,
This review is from: The Sarah Silverman Program: Season 2, Vol. One (DVD)
The first disc features an audio commentary on "Bored of the Rings" by Laura and Sarah Silverman. They spend too much time watching the episode and not enough time commenting on it. When they do, they point out all of their friends in the supporting roles.
There is a commentary on "Face Wars" by Laura Silverman and Jay Johnston. Again, there is more watching than commentating. They spend most of the time complimenting the performances in this episode.
Sarah and Laura return for the commentary on "Doody." More of the same boring comments. There is an additional commentary by director Rob Schrab and head writer Daniel Sterling. They point out that this episode is the sequel to "Officer Jay" from Season 1. This is easily the chattiest track as the two men enthusiastically dish anecdotes of working on this episode. These guys are funny and informative.
There is a commentary on "Ah, Men" by Brian Posehn and Steve Agee. They point out their friends and co-workers on this disappointing track. There is an additional commentary featuring Schrab and Sterling. They point out that this is the sequel to the Pilot episode. They were never interested in having Sarah's character have a boyfriend because so many other sitcoms do that. This is another funny and informative track.
Finally, Brian and Steve deliver another dull commentary for "Maid to Border."
Disc two starts off with "2007 Comic Con," which features footage of a Q&A session for the cast of the show, moderated by comedian Zach Galifianakis who starts off with some amusing introductions. This is as chaotic and funny as you'd expect as the cast make fun of each other. This is easily the most entertaining and hilarious extra in the set.
Also included are two digital short films with Brian Posehn.
"Cookie Party" features the "Cookies Come Alive!" in three parts and a clip of the video game.
Finally, there are eight behind-the-scenes featurettes with various cast members offering "insights" into what they are up to while making the show. These are all pretty amusing and worth checking out.
