With the new season of Lost coming to the UK much earlier than predicted, I decided to get a jump on the commentaries and record some before the DVD is even out. Foolhardy? Maybe. Courageous? Not really.
Join me as I struggle through my extensive (and hard to read) notes on the season 3 premiere, A Tale of Two Cities, in which Jack, Kate and Sawyer discover that The Others really just wanted to be their friends all along. And what better way to start a new friendship than with imprisonment, intimidation and a spot of behavioural conditioning. It gets even better next episode: they get to do some heavy lifting too!
This commentary comes in two delicious flavours to maximise the chances of it actually synching up with the episode. You only need download the version specific to your region as the content is identical:

Right on time, John and Brandon deliver another in absentia Buffy commentary. The episode in question, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, is a season 2 highlight which sees Xander channel the very best of The Average White Band as a love spell goes awry. Join the guys as they attempt to solve the greatest ethical conundrum posed in the entire 7 season run: if you were Xander, would you unwrap Buffy?
Fall TV mini-update: I just saw the pilot episode of Standoff and quite enjoyed it. Perfect timing then for Fox to order another 3 scripts and bring the running tally for season 1 to 19 episodes. Here's hoping they make it to 22...

Confession: poor choice of microphone plus sore throat does not good audio quality make.

In perfect time for me developing a sore throat, here comes a dusty volume from the archives to save the day. Although House of the Dead was the first commentary Brandon appeared on that was posted to the website, he and John actually recorded two Buffy tracks for season 2 episodes some time beforehand. To spare my vocal chords for the week I present the first of these, recorded for episode 3 of season 2, School Hard, in which a certain peroxide blonde makes his first appearance. And to think they were going to kill him off before the end of the season...
