This is a boring commenatary. Fury and Grossman mainly describe the episode as it is happending, only stoping to point out the obvious and laugh at funny parts of the episode. VERY little info is given here. Don't waste your time.

Commentary 2: "Fool for Love" -- Writer Doug Petrie Rating:7.2/10 (10 votes) [graph]Login to vote or review

O.K. commentary. Doug talks about how the episode was made, similarities with the Angel episode "Daria" and about the episode and characters in general. Not very insightful, but not boring. Doug is very chatty and entraining, you can tell he clearly loves this show. Recommended.

Terrible commentary. All Espenson does is tell us what happens after it happens and points out what she likes about the episode. Don't waste your time.

Another great Joss track as he talks at length about the camerawork he used and its effect for this episode: very little edits with no music in order to place the audience in that moment of shock when someone close to you dies. He also wanted to convey the feeling of an overwhelming sense of loss. This is a great track to listen to and leaves you wishing he had contributed more to the commentaries on this set.

Joss talks a lot about how he filmed this episode and why he did it that way. Very informal, but only a little amount of jokes form Joss because of the episode’s subject matter.
