Of “Spaced” and Gunfights

Spaced, the TV show created by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright before they did Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (and Run Fatboy Run) finally comes out on Region 1 DVD tomorrow, July 23. The show aired in 1999-2000. I TiVo it whenever it pops up on BBC America but I’m pretty damned stoked finally getting the DVD.

As with Shawn and Fuzz, the style of Spaced is very silly and loaded with pop-culture and movie references: references not only in dialog but also in film making style.

Here is a clip from one of my favorite episodes:

Oh and did I mention they talk about Star Wars a lot?

For more about Spaced, go to the wikipedia entry (natch) or buy the DVD set here.
