Spaced is the best sit com ever,
This review is from: Spaced: Complete Series 1 and 2 (Box Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
Spaced series 1 and 2 in one box. If you've seen Shaun of The Dead thenyou'll like Spaced as it's co-written by Simon Pegg and directed by EdgarWright (the writers of Shaun Of The Dead). This is a superbly written sitcom... every shot, every line and every joke has been thought about a lotand honed to perfection. It's more of a work of art than a sit com.
Actually that's a bit over the top, but it really is well made and veryvery funny. It's funny because the characters feel like they could beyour mates - it's not just a load of one liners fitted around a situation,it's a bunch of funny guys and girls who are funny in their own right.
Also it's spectacularly well directed: shot like a film would be, which isunusual for a sit com but works very well.
So, it's excellent, and the extras on the DVDs make it even better. It'sworth re-watching the whole series with the comentary track turned on, asthis in itself is pretty funny. The two DVDs in the box set are the sameas the DVDs you can buy individually.
By this now!
PS: if you can't work out how to get the 'homage-o-meter' to work, thesecret is that you have to switch on subtitles track 2 (it's not very wellexplained on the DVD case)
