Spaced is quite simply the product of Genius at work. The writers and stars (Simon Pegg & Jessica Stevenson) are talented enough as it is, but add the talent of Director Edgar Wright and you have something very special.
The comic timing is emphasised by the dramatic camera angles and cut scenes, and the perfectly cast characters of Mike, Brian, Marsha, & Twist - and Bill Bailey is brilliant as ever as Bilbo, although I think my personal favourite is Tyres, the Cycle delivery Raver who's outbursts never fail to have me rolling on the floor.
The film references are a challenge laid down to spot them all, which is great fun and they have chosen some classic moments to parody.
The DVD is extremely good value for money, it includes numerous extras including cast and character biographies, as well as out-takes and deleted scenes. There is even an option to listen to a commentary by Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright. While you watch the fun, they explain why they shot the particular scene that way, and what else was happening at the time.
"skip to the end..."
Ok, just buy the DVD and get it over with. You know you want to! I can't wait for the second series to be released on DVD, I will be the proud owner of a copy as soon as it is. Until then we've all got the Friday night showing of series 2 to keep us entertained. If you're as sad as me, you'll also be watching the Saturday night repeats as well...
