SV commentaries: the hilarity  

Ok, so there I was trying to write something insightful about S4 SV because there is a *lot* to be said... but instead I keep bursting into giggles remembering the sound clips of MR from the 'Exile' commentary.

Spoilers for SV commentaries

Listening to the SV commentaries, I experience both wonder and fear... because it seems like just about anything you've ever thought about the show will be *said right out there*. I thought nothing could top MR saying 'what? the 'Clex' thing?' on the Red commentary, or Al and Miles pointing out the panning-up-his-body look Lex gives Clark, but 'Exile' commentary took things to a whole new level... (Al & Miles are indistinguishable in my mind from one another so I've just treated them as one entity)

MR: (completely a propos of nothing) This is a very gay room.

Al/Miles: Like that's unusual...

MR: You think I look hot... you want me to take my clothes off again... Tom's got a tan...

Al/Miles: You say that like it's a bad thing...

MR: No, it's not *bad*. I'm good, keep going...

Al/Miles: Oh *this* room!

MR: Yeah!

Al/Miles: Oh, *we're* all gay... I see. We're all very comfortable with our sexuality. Everyone in this room is married except one person. Would that be you Michael?

MR: I'm on the number 1 show in the history of the network. You think I'm going to get married now.


MR: (again, apropos of nothing or maybe just because he's a dork) Oh shit! I've spilt water all over myself! It's cold. I'm not wearing underwear...


MR: (watching himself on the island) I've got to work out again...

Al/Miles: (in chorus, dreamily) yeah... you look HOT.

MR: oh no, here we go again...


Phew! hopefully my brain has now been purged appropriately.

Yeah! I love MR's humour so much. He is so insane.

John Schneider: Michael Rosenbaum... I mean what an excessively *strange* individual.

Annette O'Toole: We have a laugh. It's name is Michael Rosenbaum.

MR (probably slightly inaccurately paraphrased from some interview or another): I could never look at myself in the mirror and think 'sex symbol'. But I mean if a woman came up to me and said 'I think your character's really sexy' I wouldn't say 'what?? why??'. I'd *go* with it... I'd say 'thank you. you're quite hot yourself.'

Sigh. He's such a skirt-chaser. But yet so endearing.

Heh! Yup, they're good...
Al&Miles basically can't resist commenting on how hot Michael looks in all those island shots. And who can blame them? They even point out how low-slung his pants are. As if the audience would miss that. LOL.

Commentaries are next on my to do list (have to finish s4 first lol).

But I'm looking forward to them because they're quite amusing from what I've heard.

I bought all four seasons on dvd primarily for vidding. It sounds like I should actually watch them! *g*

Apart from the 'Exile' commentary, I recommend the commentaries on 'Red' (both are funny in their own ways but the MR-TW interaction on the actors' one wins out), and the Pilot commentary is good for Al&Miles's casual 'we thought it would be fun to have these two kiss each other... sure why not?' moment. But MR is the highlight ;-)
