SPACED Yes, please!

This show is utterly , randomly, absolutely ... awesome. I can't beging to describe how awesome this show is without sounding foolish. I've covered that. Anyway- if your having doubts about buying this show then look no further than your wallet! Your broke? take out a loan- borrow from your parents, go down the street and sell lemonade till you have the money to aquire this masterpiece. Am i kidding? Hell no! Make the time to make the money to get this series. You won't regret it. You'll chersh it and you may regret something, that would be you, not buying this, and finding out one day you screwed up so bad that you missed out on so many laughs and such a good time. SPACED- have you ordered it yet? Why are you waiting? Hulu has it... why bother!? You'll need the entire series. Without buffering, loading or a montly payment. The investment is here, for your children, your wife and your grandmother... cause she'll laugh her ass off too. Will she get all the jokes? No, but eventually she'll google them and when she does... She'll laugh, hard. So hard she'll fart, and when she farts, SPACED will be to blame, for the laugh you'll have from your grandmother crop dusting your living room. Get SPACED and you'll laugh your butt off and you'll also be like " HA! WTF WAS THAT!? " You'll find out that a irish raver can make a beat out of a phone ringing. You'll also find out a traffic sign will hold him up so he can rave out in the middle of the street. Am i rambling? Yes, i am. Don't like it? Go drown Lara Croft in a tomb then. This show is awesome folks and its a great buy. I wouldn't make myself out to be so damn goofy or off for the sake of anything else but this show. Please, if you consider anything funny- give this show a chance and i feel if you have a genuine sense of humor then you'll love this show and the cast. Try SPACED, out, you'll stay high for days. Then come down to find other comedies aren't as good and frankly, you'll see a lot of SPACED around. If i lead you in the wrong path... send me your copy, i'd love to give it to someone as a gift.

Spaced: The Greatest Show Ever Made...
Verified purchase
I Should tell you right now, Edgar Wright is my all time Favorite Director. I Love Shaun of the Dead and God Damn Adore Hot Fuzz as one of my favorite movies of all Time and Don't forget Scott Pilgrim vs The World, A Brilliant Movie that know one seems to give any love to. Anyway, Spaced:The Complete Series is A Fantastic and Funny Show. I Got this Over Netflix first and wondered how good it can be coming from My Favorite Director and right then and there, I Fell in Love with this show. My Favorite Show before this was Lost, but Lost is completely out of the Way since Spaced came in and kicked its ass. Spaced is About Tim and Daisy who meet in A Diner and start becoming friends but then One Day, Daisy decides to look at Flats and sees one that is for Only a Professional Couple. Tim and Daisy are no where Near being a couple or even Professional, so they decide to PRETEND be a couple in order to live at the flat. They then enjoy there lives, Tim is A Clerk at the local Comic Book Shop but is also one hell of a drawer and hopes to become a Graphic Novelist one day while Daisy is a writer that can't think of what to write. Friends of The Two come along like Daisy's Friend Twist and Tim's Friend, Mike (Played by The Awesome Nick Frost). The Roommate Downstairs, Brian is an Artist...Just kind of a weird one and Martha, The Wine Drinking, Smoking Landlord who comes along and joins conversations. This Show is just Full of Homages and References and full of Nerdy Stuff that Only Nerds Love like Battlebots and Robocop. I Suggest that everyone watches this show or at least give it a chance, cause I Guarantee that You will love it. My Only Complaint isn't even the show is that The Version I Got, The Box seemed kinda damaged, not to much but kinda noticeable. Nothing To Big but Still.

A wonderful and supremely enjoyable discovery

Before there was Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, there was Spaced. Sadly, I didn't discover this BBC treasure until very recently, only checking it out after the rave things I'd heard about it since it's made it's way to our shores on DVD, and being a huge fan of the aforementioned films and the talent behind them, gave Spaced a shot. Needless to say, less than two episodes in, I fell in love. Spaced tells the story of wanna-be comic book artist Tim (Simon Pegg) and wanna-be writer Daisy (Jessica Stevenson); two people who just met and pose as a couple in an effort to rent out a flat. To make things complicated, they have to deal with their slightly unhinged landlady Marsha (Julia Deakin) and their even more unhinged artist neighbor Brian (Mark Heap). Loaded with pop-culture references (Star Wars and video games play a huge role, and Tim's tripped out zombie experience is an obvious precursor to Shaun of the Dead), brilliant dialogue, and plenty of undeniably hilarious moments, Spaced is a truly joyous experience. Even more undeniably true is the fact that Spaced is certainly funnier and smarter than any sitcom you'll find on American network television today (the only show in my opinion to even come close may be Arrested Development), and the special features included in this three-disc set only add to the experience. All in all, Spaced is a pure comic blast, and if you've missed out on this show but are a fan of anything from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, Spaced is definitely more than worth your time.

Spaced

The box set is a must have for the Pegg / Frost die hard fan set. The first 2 episodes will have you reaching for the remote to fast forward to the next episode. DON'T! Yes, the first 2 are painfully slow, and at times, not funny. Yet, part way through the 3rd you will be rewarded! From then on, the series is tremendous.

Brian is played by Mark Heap from the Brit series Green Wing (he played Dr. Alan Statham). Brian keeps stealing scene after scene. Heap brings forth his talent of physical and bizarre humour that you don't really see in North American shows.

Mike who is played by Nick Frost, is the other scene stealer. Only when he has a larger part (half way through episode 3) does the series really jump. You'll love him in the Paintball and the Robot Wars episodes. Amazing that Heap and Frost are both cast as supporting characters, yet they really carry the scenes.

As typical of a Simon Pegg story, the attentive viewer is rewarded with inside, background gags and references. When you watch the series again and again, you'll understand.

I have been waiting for a few years to pick up "Spaced" and all I can say it is worth the wait. Edgar Wright Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson have a good chemistry that is akin to a basketball team that is in the zone, they might not have the best players, but they share the ball, with the objective to score, the best way possible. Even though it is only 14 episodes total, these are quick short films. I would say that "Community" is an American version of "Spaced" in fact I'm suprised there haven't been any "Spaced" references on the show, I digress. The only drawback to "Spaced"? Honestly the title "Spaced", and thats allright. I don't know what the bbc does in financing their shows, everyone involved in the making of this series, looks like they had a blast. Kudos to everyone involved, also what is really cool, is that you catch "Spaced" alumni in "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz". In all honesty with "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" they are extended episodes of "Spaced" I don't mean that as an insult.

Worth the wait

It's been nearly a decade since Spaced debuted in the UK, yet we are just now getting the DVD release here in the States. This is much due to a music licensing issue that thankfully got resolved. Since then, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright have teamed to make two phenomonal films in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz and garnered acclaim on this side of the pond. It's funny that the show that launched their careers (as well as the hilarious and talented co-creator Jessica Hynes nee Stevenson) is just now getting released here, where their recent work will likely be a selling point of the DVD! This is what comedy should be- surreal, sans laugh track or a studio audience, and genuinely funny based on situations that don't feel forced. There are a lot of British references which get explained on the commentary, but it never stopped me from getting it (and I'm American). 14 episodes worth of awesome, plus an unheard of amount of extras, make this set a must buy for anyone who likes things that are funny.

Always leave them wanting more.

This is a prime example of raw talent waiting to be discovered. 5 years before the amazing 'Shaun of the Dead' Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, & Nick Frost made the most intelligent, referential, and hilarious British television show since 'Monty Python'. Unfortunately it only ran for 14 episodes. After making the first 2 series on a shoestring budget and working themselves to exhaustion Simon, Edgar, Nick, & Jessica Stevenson (Cowriter & star) had to move on to bigger and better things. I love 'Shaun of the Dead' and their follow up 'Hot Fuzz' but I would have also liked to have seen 'Spaced' run for 2, 3, even 10 more series. But that as they say is the key to show business: Always leave them wanting more.

With a fantastic supporting cast, a simple yet engaging story, and enough pop culture in jokes to make VH1 explode, this is one of the all- time best. Buy this now, thank me later.
