American fans: Don't purchase DVDs w/region 4 code
Verified purchase
The DVDs, when I received them, were in perfect condition. The series is brilliant, I've had the chance to watch both seasons years ago and wanted my own copy to rewatch. I will, unfortunately, be returning. I mistakenly purchased the set with the region code 4, which is not formatted for DVD players in America. The region code you want to look for is 1, by the way. Which is not the seller's fault, mine entirely for not paying closer attention!

SPACED Yes, please!
Verified purchase
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.

LOVE this series

Spaced is a must have for English comedy/slight drammaz lovers.

The writing is very good, and the acting is top notch. Pegg is so awesome, and his castmates deliver, bigtime!
The storyline takes you on some great "twists" ;-) & turns.
The SFX, lighting and camera work are really good considering their budget wasnt a blank check.

The setting isnt pretty(wasnt meant to be), but it grows on you quickly.

There is something for everyone in this series... action, drama, laughable tears, dogs, guns, and hijinx - often. :-)

It's a little pricey, but it's worth it as it's one of the best UK sitcoms? ever imho.
Wish it had more episodes, but they always disc' the GOOD ones dont they?
[smh]

Buy it.

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.

Great show. Won't play. Correct zone.

I absolutely love this show. A hidden gem of the late 90's. Disc 2 of the set, however, does not play despite looking to be in perfect condition. By the time we got around to watching it and discovering that fact, the time window for a return was gone. Pretty disappointed....

I have been a fan of Pegg and Frost and the gang for years ,but did not know about Spaced. The best advice I can provide is that if you are a fan of these two And Wright, you are missing out if you skip this series. Strange, weird, and silly and yet by the end, deep despair there is no more. I miss them. HINT: WATCH the extras especially Skip to the End, all the way to the end.

Nothing short of brilliant
Verified purchase
What can I say that hasn't already been said before about this series? If you haven't seen it you're in for a real treat! Every episode is shot like a cinematic movie for the small screen. There's drama, action, comedy, suspense, what more could you ask for? The series holds up really well to multiple viewings to catch all of the little movie references and jokes. The DVDs themselves are covered by lovely artwork featuring the characters as caricatures of themselves and the packaging is good quality. Like all Wright/Pegg DVDs the bonus features are excellent and well worth the cost. They include the homage-o-meter, raw footage, outtakes, deleted scenes, as well as the 2007 BFI Q&A panel, and TWO alternate endings (one in the Skip To the End doc and one in the extra deleted scenes on disc 3). A definite must buy!

A wonderful and supremely enjoyable discovery
Verified purchase
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.
