Product Description

Entire first series 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 decide to pose as a professional couple in order to gain tenancy of a North London flat. Losers in love, the pair grow closer through a series of traumas and misadventures - paintballing, dognapping, failed job interviews, performance art - which they share with their eccentric friends: landlady Marsha (Julia Deakin); eccentric artist Brian Topp (Mark Heap); bubble-brained Twist Morgan (Katy Carmichael); and Tim's childhood friend, the military-obsessed Mike Watt (Nick Frost).

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...

Spaced is original, observant and witty. It fuses the realism of sitcoms such as "The Royale Family" and "The Office" with directly funny jokes that will never stop at least raising a smile no matter how many times you watch them. It deals with the market of the 20-something, educated but poor, british, creative (artists, fashion, cartoonists, writers, Mike) person at the beginning of the 21st century. So this series may not appeal to everyone as "The Royale Family" may not. It helps if you can identify with the characters - but most people can. The camera work is fantastic - influenced by Sam Raimi I think. The series is packed full of pop-culture references cleverly worked into the plot the come quicker and more often than a simpsons episode. The DVD is good (series 2 is better - more for your money) the comentary track is unplanned and as a result is very funny. Luckily Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Jessica Stevenson are naturally funny people so it works well, giving you a relaxed atmosphere. People often compare this show to "Black Books" although I'm not sure why. Black Books is funny (but not as much as spaced) but surreal and the humour is a bit more simple. Some episodes of Spaced could be classed as "Fine art" (the party episode for example) as it is visually stunning and has a good, observant, original concept behind it. Subtle and Brilliant

Spaced is a fans dream, as a series it is full of loads of great gags and references as well as a host of guest stars and best of all a top cast. Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson are the best guides into the world of spaced where the camera doesn't stop moving and the plot doesn't stand still. Daisy and Tim are painfully perfect for each other and you won't be able to stop yourself wanting them to be a couple instead of having to pretend. Mark Heap and Julia Deakin really flesh out their character that could have become over cliched and patchey, but a combination of great writing; character development and top acting make these the most interesting pair in the show. Katy Carmichael and Nick Frost are the oddest characters in the principal cast and do stick out, the only fault is the under use of Twist. Great material is there but not enough this as a lot about her relationship with Daisy but she is a painfully funny as Ricky Gervais is in 'The Office'. Mike on the other hand get funnier the more times you see him and by the final episode can hold a scene without the others "butterfly.....Butterfly with a bomb".
On the dvd we are treated to all 7 episodes that get better as the series progresses, check the paintball and final episode to see how good it really gets. The extras too are sound. the menus are a bit troublesome and there's no documentary but the rest more than makes up for that, some valuable deleted scenes, an always interesting outtakes reel, fun trailers and biography. The real feature is the Commentary what more could you want? the track is both hilarious and interesting exactly like the show eh. It's always good to know what the producer thinks, who is as fun as the cast. This is Spaced heaven bettered only by the extras on the Spaced series 2 dvd.

Someone once said that the best comedies were ones that though original seemed so familiar that you are amazed no one had come up with them before.
'Spaced' perhaps fits this description better than any comedy made within the past 10 years.
I won't rehash the large amount of deserved praise spoken by others about the show itself, but I do want to highlight the value of purchasing the DVD version of the series.
Unlike some DVD film and TV releases, much care has been taken to add features to make this more than a 'slightly better quality than VHS' release that you feel does'nt justify the extra expense.
'Spaced' was filmed in widescreen, and the very visual style of the series is enhanced by the DVD presentation.
The DVD also contains many extra features, Many deleted scenes, outtakes,trailers,biographies of cast and characters along with the always welcome choice to hear commentary by the main cast and director - a positive bonus if you were desparately trying to find which of the many films influenced the scene you were just watching.
In short, even if you taped the series from the television, buy the DVD - The extra quality and features for once are well worth it
