Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.]]>

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