Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It only takes one episode to become very protective of this 1999 British Comedy Award-winning series that put comedy soul mates Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson (now Hynes), as well as Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) on the map. One can only hope a threatened American version is never produced. This is one of those brilliant, off-center, lightning-in-a-bottle creations that gets you so jazzed, you want to turn all your friends on to it. Spaced (actually, Friends might have been a better title; too bad it was taken) stars Pegg and Stevenson as strangers Tim and Daisy, "amiable 20-somethings" who pose as a "professional couple" to rent an apartment. He is a recently-dumped aspiring comic book artist. She is an easily distracted writer. As the series unfolds, their apartment becomes an "island of calm in the ocean of life" as Tim and Daisy form a kind of 21st century family with their similarly misfit friends, including soused landlord Marsha (Julia Deakin), who lives with her teenager daughter (aka "the devil in a A cup," who is heard, but never quite seen), Brian (Mark Heap), an artist who deals in anger, fear, and aggression, Simon's best friend Mark (Frost), a militaristic gun nut, and Daisy's best friend, Twist (Katy Carmichael), a fashion poseur (in the series' penultimate episode, look for a pre-Office Ricky Gervais). Spaced is not so much interested in Tim and Daisy's charade as it is in cramming each episode with pop culture references and obscure in-jokes, and brilliantly realized film and TV homages, ranging from Woody Allen's Manhattan to Pulp Fiction and The Empire Strikes Back (Star Wars, especially, looms large in Tim's slacker universe). As with Arrested Development, Spaced benefits from repeat viewings to catch missed bits of business and gags that fly by at a Simpsons-esque rate. This Complete Series set is everything Spaced's fervent following would demand. Each episode is complemented by the original commentaries as well as newly-recorded gabfests that also feature American friends of the show, including Kevin Smith, Patton Oswalt, Quentin Taratinto, Matt Stone, Diablo Cody, and Bill Hader. There are deleted scenes and outtakes, and, best of all, an hour-long 2007 Q&A with Wright and the cast, in which Pegg allows that, had there been a third series (and we can still dream), it would have provided viewers hoping that Tim and Daisy would ultimately get together with "a moment to make every hair of your body stand on end." You will see such a moment if you "skip to the end" of the essential near two-hour series retrospective. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Spaced revolves around two idle twentysomething flatmates - immature skateboarding would-be comic artist Tim (Simon Pegg), and moody, responsibility-shy Daisy (Jessica Stevenson), and their self-induced lack of success in employment, relationships and life in general. Together with their oddball assortment of friends and neighbors, Marsha, Brian, Mike and Twist, they exist in a world perched precariously on the edge of normality.

This is an AMAZINGLY wonderful show. Genius!
Edgar, Simon and Jess created a program which speaks directly to a specific group of people with whom they share so much in common. If you get the subtle inside jokes, you feel special, if not, you love it anyway because it's just so unique and funny. Spaced lays the foundation for many ongoing jokes (much like Kevin Smith's universe) in subequent Wright/Pegg/Frost films Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. I own the UK version and will absolutely be buying this release too! Quite frankly, I'll buy anything from Edgar, Simon or Nick!

This series (though only two seasons) is brilliant! It is by far my favorite british series -- yes, I'm even including the Office in there. My friend got my hooked on it when I was living over there, and now I'm left spaced-less, which is not a good situation to be in.

Seriously though, the writing and acting is spot on. It often spoofs well known pop culture, and always does so without being over-the-top or cringe worthy like some spoofs. And the originality of the series is unrivaled -- Simon Pegg is brilliant! Be sure to catch his zombie romance spoof, Shaun of the Dead.

Please please please, I beg of the powers to be, bring both seasons of Spaced to the American audience! I'm tired of my friends only seeing Keeping Up Appearances on PBS and saying British comedy isn't that funny -- well they haven't seen Spaced yet...

If you've never had the opportunity to see Spaced, you're in for a treat. Available for the first time ever in the States on DVD (and a long time coming at that!), this hilarious sit-com delivers all the necessities of an instant cult classic.

The story revolves around Tim and Daisy, two twenty-somethings who, through a spell of bad luck, wind up meeting in a London coffee shop. Both are at the ends of bad relationships, so they decide to move into a flat together, pretending that they are married in order to gain residence. Laced with pop culture references, the series manages to balance their misadventures with their aspirations of becoming successful.

Highly recommended. But just be sure not to call Hawk the Slayer rubbish!

I am really really shocked that this isn't on DVD in the US. I mean REALLY REALLY shocked! What on Earth is going on??? This is right up the alley for 'Shaun' and 'Office' fans. We love 'The Office.' We love 'Shaun of the Dead.' And soon we'll love 'Hot Fuzz.' 'Spaced' is even more American than 'The Office.' It's a great diservice to America that this is not in circulation here! I watched the first series literally TWICE in a ROW! I mean, come-freakin'-on! Bring it on, man!

This program is absolutly amazing, it is by far one of the best written shows I have ever seen. If you enjoyed Shaun of the Dead, this DVD set is a must for you, It includes every episode produced, tons of bonus features on each disc, commentary on every episode, and a full length documentary about how this wonderful show came to be.

All I can say is it's about time! Even Big Train and League of Gentlemen made it out here before this. I have the beat up region 2 copies and can't wait to be able to own the complete series with all the lovely, lovely extras. How will I make it until next month?

If you like anything Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have done you will love this show. It's brilliant. Just buy it!

The TV series is incredible! They have been threatening to put it out in the US for awhile now, and I have been waiting patiently...

This is a very surreal and silly show about two room-mates, their ridiculous acquaintances, and (to a very minor degree) the sexual tension between them. Many scenes are spoofs from movies, TV shows and video games... which makes it a pop culture junkies dream.

Hopefully enough people will see these good reviews and raise a stink and get it produced in the US. If not, you could always try to download them and watch them, but as always consistent recording quality is a problem.

Format: DVD
Great U.K. series (two seasons) by Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright, made before SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ. I love "SPACED" even more than both of the movies (which are great), maybe because of co-creator Jessica Hynes' added female point of view? Whatever the magic ingredient it is, it makes for very relateable and endearing characters. That same sense of humor evident in the movies is very much on display here, but because this is a series you get many more hours to know these characters. And you'll enjoy every minute. Pegg's Tim Bisley is a Sci-Fi lovin' pushing-thirty nerd, but there isn't an ounce of parody, he's a real person. Jessica's Daisy Steiner too is a terrific character devoid of the typical sitcom shortcuts. Around these two is a stellar supporting cast inclduing Nick Frost's military-obsessed Mike, Mark Heap's struggling artist Brian, Katy Carmichael's oblivious Twist and the marvelous Julia Deakin as the alcoholic landlady Marsha. Each episode is a gem, and it adds up to a group of people you don't want to stop knowing. The documentary included in the three-disc set, "Skip to the End", is very comprehensive as both a behind-the-scenes and a history of the show (as well as providing a nice little CODA as to what may have happened to Tim & Daisy!). It's astounding that as well as SHAUN and HOT FUZZ did in the States that "SPACED" is not yet available in America. Seek it out.
