Product Description

Product Description

Box set containing series one and two of the Channel 4 sitcom centring around comic book fanatic Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) and aspiring journalist Daisy Steiner (Jessica Stevenson), an ill-matched duo who have been posing as a professional couple in order to retain tenancy of a North London flat. Includes the episodes: 'Beginnings', 'Gatherings', 'Art', 'Battles', 'Chaos' 'Epiphanies', 'Ends', 'Back', 'Change', 'Mettle', 'Help', 'Gone', 'Dissolution' and 'Leaves'.


Spaced is a sitcom like no other. The premise is simple enough: Daisy (Jessica Stevenson) and Tim (Simon Pegg) are out of luck and love, so pretend to be a couple in order to rent a flat together. Downstairs neighbour and eccentric painter Brian suspects someone's fibbing, and almost blows their cover with their lecherous lush of a landlady, Marsha. Fortunately he soon falls for Daisy's health-freak friend Twist, while Daisy herself goes ga-ga for pet dog Colin. Tim remains happily platonic with lifemate Mike; a sweet-at-heart guns 'n' ammo obsessive. The series is chock-full of pop culture references. In fact, each episode is themed after at least one movie, with nods to The Shining and Close Encounters of the Third Kind proving especially hilarious. Hardly five minutes goes by without a Star Wars reference, and every second of screen time from Bill Bailey as owner of the comic shop where Tim works is comedic gold. The look of the series is its other outstanding element, with slam-zooms, dizzying montages, and inspired lighting effects (often paying homage to the Evil Dead movies). It's an affectionate fantasy on the life of the twenty-something that's uncomfortably close to the truth.

The second series finds the gang at 23 Meteor Street a little older, but definitely none the wiser. Tim's career is hampered by severe hang-ups over The Phantom Menace. Daisy's career is just plain non-existent. There is still a spark of sexual tension between them, but it's overshadowed by Brian and Twist getting it on. Propelling the seven-episode series arc is the threat of Marsha discovering that none of the relationships are what they seem, Mike's increasing jealousy and a new love interest for Tim. That's the basis for a never-ending stream of in-jokes and references that easily match the quality of the first series. Tim has a Return of the Jedi flashback, then déjà vu in reliving the end of The Empire Strikes Back. There are spoofs of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Robocop, The Sixth Sense and comedy rival The Royle Family. There are guest spots from Bill Bailey, Peter (voice of Darth Maul) Serafinowicz and The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith. Every episode is packed with highlights, but this series' guaranteed geek pant-wetting moments have to be the mock gun battles, slagging off Babylon 5 and learning that "The second rule of Robot Club is: no smoking." Jessica Stevenson won a British Comedy Award for this year. It deserved a whole lot more. --Paul Tonks

SPACED is a show you hear word of mouth. Therefore when you discover it, its like nothing on earth before. The show is amazingly shot (Edgar Wright living out his fantasy of trying every camera shot and angle, plus the added bonus of recreating some of cinema's finest moments) and the script from Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson is delightful. Pegg is brilliant as Tim, an out of work comic book illustrator and Stevenson as upbeat writer Daisy brings something so real and sweet to the show. Add in upstairs alcoholic Marsha (wonderful!), Mark Heaps' amazing turn as tortured artist Brian and tim's best mate (in real life and on screen) Nick Frost as Mike, and you have everything that makes a funny comedy great. Shame about a 3rd series, but can you perfect perfection?
And that is just the show! The DVD is amazing. Commentary for every episode (14), deleted scenes, hilarious outtakes, bios and of course the piece de resistance, a wonder 2 hour documnatary on all aspects of Spaced, from the cameo's (a brillaint turn by The League of Gentlemen's Reece Shearmsith as a rival to Mike) to the location scouting, the extras and much much more. Worth every single penny and more!

If every programme broadcast on television was half as good as 'Spaced', we would all permanately be glued to our screens. Yhere is no doubt about it: 'Spaced' is a fine example of what all contempary sitcom's should be. It has all the ingredients, razor sharp, witty dialogue, a bunch of actors whoes portrayl of their character is sublime and to perfection in every way possible. The character's themselves are a mixed variety, cleverely crafted and brought to life with such eccentric conviction that you believe them to be real, and after a number of episodes begin to feel for them. That is the brilliance of Spaced. Anyway let me introduce to the characters, (I wouldn't like to run into them on a dark night mind!' First there's Daisy Steiner, an ambitious journalist, who believes herself to be a hard worker who regulary produces solid gold work, but however, she will do anything to sway and prevent doing any work, (for instance throwing a house warming party and buying a dog). Then there's skate boarding, science fiction comic book obsessed Tim Bisely, a camudgeonally and emotionally crippled wreck of a man whoes way to deal with life is to play Tomb Raider III. Lurking in the basesment downstairs in insane, sinister artist Brian Topp, who's multi-coloured approach to life mimics the distressing hue of his artwork. Marsha Klein, the land lady is a swear box, a smoke machine who has a somewhat unhealthy addiction to the well being (love life really) of Brian. Then there's Tim's best friend, Mike Watt, a weapons expert who was fired from the army after he stole a tank and tried to invade Paris. Finally the fashion queen, Daisy's comrade Twist Morgan, whoes philosphy of life may be something along the lines of 'looks are everything'.Read more ›

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Oct. 2008
Format: DVD
Spaced was a UK sitcom that ran for two seasons in 1999 and 2001 and was tremendously critically acclaimed at the time. The creative team subsequently moved into cinema, creating the hit movies Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the forthcoming The World Ends, but Spaced remains by far their funniest and most rewarding work.

The series opens with aspiring comic book artist Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) and workshy writer Daisy Steiner (Jessica Stephenson) both having to find a new place to live. Randomly bumping into one another in the local cafe, they decide to fake being a couple to rent a surprisingly cheap flat in London. The rest of the regular cast is rounded off by their landlady Marsha (a wine-swigging, ex-groupie single mum), Tim's best friend Mike (a failed soldier with a weapons fixation), Daisy's best friend Twist (who Tim sums up as being a "bit like Cordelia from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and latterly its spin-off series Angel, which is set in LA,") and Brian, the mildly pretentious artist (specialities: anger, pain, fear and aggression) who rents Marsh's basement flat.

It's a pretty traditional sitcom set-up, but Spaced differs from the average sitcom in two important respects. First, it is directed, shot and edited much more like a movie, with fast-cuts, segues, occasionally impressive special effects and the use of real locations (a nightclub sequence is actually filmed in a proper nightclub, for example, rather than a lame set). Secondly, the series is absolutely overflowing with movie, TV and comic references, some verbal, others visual, some subtle and some pretty outrageous. The DVDs come equipped with a 'homage-o-metre' which tracks these references as they fly past.

If you are reading this review, you must be half interested, so buy it now!!!!! This is the coolest, funniest, most life-affirming, heart warming and downright hilarious tv show ever. If youre into films, sci-fi and video games, you'll lap up all the references and homages, and if youre not, you'll still love it just because its so twisted and funny. It might not be for everyone, as not everybody shares the same sense of humour, but
I defy you not to fall in love with Tim, Daisy, Mike, Marsha et al. And at 16.99 for a 3 disc set, which includes a feature length documentary (with a specially filmed ending that all Spaced fans have longed for) and extras on every disc, you cant go wrong. BUY IT!!!!!!!!!
