You think making a film with puppets and models is easy? Think again! Listening to this commentary may give you a new appreciation for this film (and TV series). Anderson and Lane bounce off each other well, the former pointing out the technical aspects and challenges of making the film, the latter providing the background on the concepts, intentions, and trivia (Did you know that Scott was modelled after Sean Connery? Or that Rolls-Royce would not let Lady Penelope's car be referred to as "the Rolls"?) And at last you'll find out what the letters "F.A.B." stand for.... Nothing! (it was simply the letters of "fab"/fabulous). A commentary for fans of the show more than casual listeners.
