Commentary on Spell  
There are quite a few episodes of Smallville that embarass me, but the one that tends to take the award for stupidest episode is Season Four's Spell.

I know some people like Spell. I like the concept. I think the actors did great with it.

But, oh Spell. You make me cringe.

That said, I finally listened the commentary for it since I've heard it was really funny. And it was done by Kristen (Lana), Allison (Chloe), and Erica (Lois.) The other person was either the writer or the director? I admit I didn't pay much attention to him...

They were so funny. You could tell they get along and they had a good time. Some cute funny highlights:

**The girls making fun of Clark. I love awkward Clark myself and think TW does a great job with the role. But who doesn't have fun poking out how much of a dork Clark can be sometimes? Apparently TW likes to make fun of him too ;)

**The entire dancing/barn scene. Just listening to them laugh was a hoot. Allison laughing as her possessed character stuffs her face. Kristen laughing at her line deliveries. Erica laughing at her height. All of them laughing at TW dancing as dorky Clark.

**Erica wanting to be in the credits. She thought maybe just a stick figure with her name would do. They decided she could just be running around in the background.

**Humor about their own characters. I loved how Allison and Erica poked fun at Chloe and Lois for not noticing Lana was possessed. She has all of these potions and stuff out on her counter and they don't even bink. Allison thought this was particularly funny considering Chloe is supposed to have a nose for news.

**Kristen on Jensen: "He's a great actor. He's easy." Allison and Erica burst into a fit of giggles. The three start snickering over the entire scene between Lana and Jason.

**More making fun of Clark. One of them laughed at how Clark seems to always be saving Lana's boyfriends. Makes you wonder, she said. More giggles.

**Making fun of how no one seems to clue into anything, including Lex. They decided since Smallville is so weird, it's par the course.

**Shouting Jensen! when JA rushes in to help Clark after he's been tied up and manhandled by the possessed trio.

**Allison and Erica laughing at Clana (in a good-natured way). When they are all no longer possessed, Clark leaves Chloe and Lois to fend for themselves and goes to check on Lana instead.

It was a really cute commentary. One of these days, I should go and listen to the others. Actually, I should listen to commentaries period LOL I still need to listen to most of the Stargate ones, the Smallville ones, and the Supernatural ones. But it was fun and way way way better than the episode itself ;)

Hah, I totally agree on Spell, it was pretty embarrassing at points. I kinda avoided that one when I got the DVDs (with, now that I think of it, most of the S4 commentary) ... I think I might have to watch it now. =)

*squees at pretty SPN boys icon*

Spell had some good moments, but overall I try to forget it exists LOL The commentary is definitely worth it. And with all the bickering that goes on in fandom, it's nice to hear just how well the actors get along. The ladies really had fun :)

The Spell commentary is brilliant! I wish they'd have those three girls do more commentaries together.

LOL That was Erica, I got the impression she was a bit of a slash fan from that commentary *g*

I thought it might be Erica. It was a hilarious line. It's just sometimes I couldn't tell the difference between her and Kristen on the commentary. She so much more soft spoken on the commentary LOL

It was a good commentary though :)

(BTW, your icon? I thought AM looked absolutely stunning in that episode. I'd love to do my hair that way.)

Oh, god, I agree. Spell makes me cringe too. I like the idea of all the girls together -- I love it when all the characters are together instead of off dealing with their own individual storylines. But this was like a bad (see: worse than usual) episode of Charmed. I think the only shining moment in it is when Jonathan finds the bra in the barn. Classic.

I love in the commentary, they all pause at the end so they can wait for Annette's hilarious line delivery: "Where did you get that?"

It's priceless. I miss Ma and Pa Kent so much :(

I rarely do commentaries. I don't know why.

But I'm a SV fan anyway and I have the DVD's for S4, so I thought I would give this one a try since I had heard a lot of good things about it.

it was cute. I recommend it :)

i've tried commentaries, and i just don't do 'em.

i have SV S4 for jensen. yeah, that's the only reason. heh.

i'll give it a try one time... my computer is rebelling aganst me playing DVDs on it - the programs hiccup and stuff after a few minutes. i'd upgrade the memory, but i already did that, so it's at it's max. and a new laptop is totally not in the budget. bah.

Aw, that sounds like a fun commentary. I can't remember if I ever listened to it, though I was pretty sure I listened to all the season 4 ones back when Jensen was my new TV boyfriend. :-)

Making fun of how no one seems to clue into anything, including Lex. They decided since Smallville is so weird, it's par the course.

This reminds me of that backstage special -- when they said the craziest thing on Smallville is like how when someone dies, everyone just simply goes "Right on, what's next?" lol.
