Commentary

Were I writing this today... Okay, there's a lot I'd do differently, but I'm choosing to focus on the fact that I would phrase Sarah's thoughts about how Elliot is inexplicably attractive differently, or have her feelings about it be a bit more subtle and vague, because let's face it: Being inexplicably attracted to something you wouldn't think you'd be attracted to is one of those "I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something about..." situations.
 
It's also worth noting that these are sci-fi weird pheromones we're talking about here. See, I've since become an expert on such things (i.e. I watched that one episode of Mythbusters), and... Oh. Uh... I guess I'm about to give the results for a myth? Um... Spoiler warning for the "Laws of Attraction" episode of Mythbusters, I guess? It's the last thing I'm going to talk about in this commentary.

ANYWAY, they found that pheromones, like the kind you can buy over the counter, can have an impact on who finds you attractive. They do not, however, make someone universally attractive to everyone, and how well they work can differ depending on who's using them. Tedd's using wacky comic logic, so I'm not saying he's wrong in this instance, but it wouldn't quite work that way if you had a magic-like ray gun that can transform people in real life. Or maybe it would, on account of it being a magic-like ray gun that can transform people. Why did I bother talking about the reality of this, again?
