As far as I know, you have to import them from the UK.  Mikey's seen VHS Copies of them, but DVD's, I'm not sure.

CDWOW has the DVD's for 6.99 (or $16.90AU, which is cheap as chips).  I'm pretty sure they send to anywhere.

EDIT:  I checked, free worldwide delivery.

Spaced seems like a really good show. Too bad that I live in America so I can't get the DVDs or watch it on TV

I think Spaced is a fantastic series. Very funny too, did it get placed in the BBC's top 100 sitcoms?

Around 81, I think.  Which isn't bad for a relatively new show, with a cult following.

Coilette: I love the cartoons too.  I love the ones on the S2 DVD, so much so that I made a "Mike" Avatar a while back, and never used it.

Spaced got to 56 or 66 in the best sitcom thing, I can't remember exactly. Anyway, like Melllvar said either one of those is pretty immense considering how unappreciated Spaced seems to be.

Can't wait for Shaun of The Dead by the way, no matter what's been said about it Im simply expecting a film length Spaced episode!

Got it, watched it the first series that is...

Tires is the best in the episode where they all go clubbing. Brilliant.

The scene where he hears the phone ringing and the beat kicks in with him thinking it sounds like a rocking tune and and then he starts bopping  laff so true...  wink

One of the oft-requested things in Spaced is that A-Team dance tune, except that it never existed.  It was made-up by Guy Pratt (Spaced Music-Bloke) especially for the show and was has never been available.

Check out the awesome Fader Gladiator - "Battle Of The Planets" in the episode where Colin goes missing (the scene where they're about to go on the rescue mission).  That's awesome.

In the commentary, they say that Tyres' dancing to the phone/kettle/etc was MixMags best TV scene of that year.  Which was awesome.  He does it again in Season Two with the traffic lights.

"Last night was A1, tip-top, clubbing jam fare, it's a sandwich of fun on extacy bread all wrapped up in a big bag like disco-fudge, it doesn't get any better than that...."

Pegg always said that he liked to give Michael Smiley (Tyres) long complicated speeches, just to see him fuck it up.    laff

Mellvar do you know any other music from the series. I know Mr Scruff featured a lot in the show, I wonder if there is a CD released.

Watching the DVDs makes Spaced even better, the commentaries are so funny.

I watched Shaun of the Dead yesterday. It's a great movie, I especially liked all the little 'Spaced' references. Like the Zombie Tyres and Julia Deacon as the other mum.
    It was also bloody scary, for me anyway. I'm a lightweight.

I saw the movie today, and I loved it (was there ever any doubt?).  It was hilarious, like watching a 90 minute Spaced episode, but with more violence (much much more).  I'm gonna put my full review in the movie reviews thread, but needless to say, it was well worth the wait.

Yeah, me too.  On one of the S1 Commentaries, Wright does a fantastic narration of his directing on one of the pivotal scenes in the episode in which Colin gets kidnapped.

The scene in which one of the characters gets literally ripped apart by the zombies, has to be seen to be believed.

BTW, the movie's a 15 Nurdy, what's stopping you seeing it (apart from proximity, obviously)?.

1: I think me and my friends might see it, but they're taking a dammed long time to get together.
2: I doubt I could scrape money together if this fails.

Nurdy, tell your friends to try harder, dammit.  It'll be worth it.  Trust your uncle Melll.  big grin

I want to see the movie again too, as I'm a subscriber to the fact that one appreciates it more the second time around.

Well, when I write my movie, I'll cast myself in the lead role, and all my friends in supporting roles, because we'd all be perfect for the parts.

..and it'd be a laugh.

In other news, anyone spot the reference to 28 Days Later at the end of Shaun? Hilarious!

I'd like to see it again but I'm afraid of the consequences (i.e lack of sleep).

The 28 Days later reference was fantastic.
