Add This to Your Queue: Spaced

Anglophiles, rejoice! The hilarious British sitcom, Spaced, is finally available on DVD in the US. The show stars the adorable Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes as Tim and Daisy, roommates who pretend they are dating to land their ideal flat. It's totally not as Friends-y as it sounds. The lovely Edgar Wright (director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) helms the series, so you know that means some crazy business (like a drunken landlady and a zombie episode). Apparently, the DVD includes commentaries from Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Diablo Cody (further proving my suspicions she and Edgar are dating. Lucky bitch) and Matt Stone, among others. The Spaced team is also on a 4 city US tour to promote the DVD release. They will be at Comic-Con in San Diego this week and I will be stuck at work. Sometimes, life is really unfair.

And, hey look. I found the first episode on YouTube:



You're welcome.

The last time I went to ComiCon (2003) I went on Friday and was going to go back the next day too but it was the same day that Radiohead tickets went on sale and after waiting in line for those for a few hours I didn't feel like waiting in another line and then it turns out that Quentin Tarantino was a surprise guest that day promoting Kill Bill. Life was unfair that day too.

I've never heard of this. Do you have a direct feed into your brain of everything awesome-related? How do I get this hook up?

G: Wow. That really sucks.

Fal: Stick with me, kid. I'll show you all the awesomeness you can handle.

I was going to say something pithy, but then got distracted by the red-hot sexual tension of Red's last comment. I'll just hide in the bushes and see what goes down between these ladies...and since Red's mom reads this, apparently, I won't make a crude joke referencing the fact that I just said "go down," "ladies," and "bushes."

Red said...

Holy Christ, Pistols. That may have been the funniest comment ever.

I don't mind Anglophiles, but Americans who speak w/ a faux-English accent scare the fuck out of me.
