Sorry to be an arse, Jules.

You could've gone back a page in this thread and found the exact link to the music pages on Spaced-Out (they're towards the middle of page four), and the tracklisting for the Soundtrack.

I finished watching the second series last night and I was mightly impressed.
The ending was just brilliant, dare I say that it could be better than futurama...

Time will tell eh?

The ending to Spaced 2 stirs the emotions, and makes you feel all good inside.

We should have positive word on S3 before the year is out.  We should also wait for the hoopla over Shaun to die down before Simon, Jess and Edgar get down to business on Spaced 3.

Speaking of which, how'd you like to see it go?

What did everyone think of the extended ending, when Tim and Daisy are at the train station in the deleted scenes?  It certainly hinted much stronger that they would get together.  As when they were on the couch it merely indicated that they could get together.  At the train station though, I think that the conversation pretty much told us that this would happen. 
I don't think I would like to see them together from the beginning of series 3 and I doubt this will happen.  I am fully excpecting the usual hilarious awkwardness between them whenever they get close.  If anyone has the talent to make two main characters becoming an item in a sitcom though it it these two.  I guess we'll just have to see how it goes.

The deleted ending was less subtle than the one shown.  I love the one shown because it's not too schmaltzy and only lightly hints at a Tim and Daisy relationship.

I reckon S3 will culminate in them getting together, there are a number of factors which might get in their way (off the top of my head as a for-instance, Daisy's old boyfriend, Richard, may return.)

The Tim/Daisy thing has been hinted since at least E5 of S1, and especially at the end of S1 (with Tim's poem to himself when he's waiting in the pub for Sarah).  I reckon that the end (whatever it may be) will be a satisfying one, the ends to both seasons so far have been great.

I doubt there will be another Spaced series made in the next year but I'm willing to wait.   smile
     
If Tim and Daisy do get together it'll take some of the comedic tension out of the series, so in a way I don't want them to.

I think that it's inevitable, and I'd be happy as long as it was handled and written well (just like the rest of Spaced).  I don't think that we'd have too much to worry about (there definately will NOT be a wedding or a baby, or anything twee like that).

I concur.

Its touching to have them get together but it would be best left to the last scene of the last episode. Sometimes its better to speculate over the fates of the characters at the end of a shows run and its almost always funnier if it doesn't allow itself to get to soppy.

No! I don't want them to get together! The whole point was that they had to pose as a couple to get the apartment, even though they weren't!

I've only seen one episode because stupid UK-TV hasn't shown them for about a year and the DVDs are the wrong region and I'm not willing to "acquire" them or hack into my DVD. However, I do believe that it wouldn't quite be the same if Daisy and Tim got together because I don't want them slipping into more traditional husband/wife roles and because of that top reason.

hmmm, this is no longer the case though as Marshia (no idea how that is spelt) knows now.

Also, the comentry suggests that they really didn't focus on the whole couple pretence thing and it isn't really important in the grand scheme of the show.

edit, also since I haven't posted in here before I have recently seen Shaun... and it's damn good. Anyone else enjoy the

Spaced is one of the best programmes around, it's surreal and funny. A definate for your DVD collection. Look for the Spaced Out link at the top of the page and have a little look see.

If your considering getting the series Impossible then do it, you won't be disappointed.

Its a very smart program and if your in your twenties then even better!!

I still can't get over all the movie references especially in the second series.
One Flew Over a Cuckoos Nest anyone?

References?  Now you're talking!  To illustrate a typical episode's homages and  references (I've left out the Spaced ones).

For instance in Ep1 of S2 the following are referenced (done with the aid of the Homage-O-Meter):

Daisy's monologue: "Chapter 1....", references the movie Manhattan.

Tim's monologue: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a graphic artist...", line paraphrased from Henry Hill's first line in Goodfellas.

Mike's running/screaming is a reference to the Willem Defoe shot in Platoon.

The fireworks and music at the end of the opening monologues is referencing Manhattan again.

Daisy finding Mike's Uzi on the cupboard in the kitchen while Mike is in the toilet is referencing the Bruce Willis/John Travolta stand-off in Pulp Fiction.

Tim talks about his hatred of The Phantom Menace, and cuts to him burning all of his Star Wars stuff, like Luke Skywalker burning Darth Vader on the pire at the end of Return Of The Jedi, John Williams' music is also included.

Mike's decoration of Daisy's room is a reference to Apocalypse Now.

Daisy's bloke-friend at the airport running off is a reference to Midnight Express

The two agents, reference the Agents in The Matrix.

Tim and Mike are playing WWF Wrestling back in the flat.  Mike even does a Stone Cold move on Tim.

Mike's quip when pointing his pink pistol at the two Agentsin the pub: "Say hello to my little friend." is Al Pacino's famous line in Scarface

Daisy's karate training is from The Karate Kid.

Brian being back at the flat with the two agents, Mike's Chewy-style reaction, and Brian's line "they arrived right before you did..." is taken from The Empire Strikes Back, followed by Tim's great line, "You Lando!"


That's just one Ep.

The show is chocka with references, in fact I'm surprised there were so few on that list, I expected more....

And the Homage-O-Meter is the best thing ever! All DVD's should have this feature. Seriously.

I think I should start to watch Spaced, it sounds really good and if it's anything like SOTD then it will be worth shelling out for the dvd.

I was pleasantly surprised because lots of comedy actors appeared in this film. Yay for SOTD/spaced!

Woo! Go Impy.

Cat: Anyone who sees and likes SOTD will love Spaced, it's pitched at exactly the same level as SOTD.

Those references were easy to pick out, and I didn't pick a reference-heavy episode.  Now, doing one from S1, that's a bit harder (as there's no Homage-O-Meter).  I'll give it a go one day.

Wow, I didn't even notice half of those. I need to get the series 2 dvd so I can watch the commentary.

Has anyone ever had a spaced marathon? Although I watched most of the shows when they originally aired, when I really got into Spaced was when a friend had a spaced night. There was 6 or 7 of us and we stayed up all night watching it(+jaffa cakes and playfighting) much fun

I've done quite a few sittings watching the full lot in one go, but never done a Spaced Marathon (with Jaffa Cakes), sounds like a fun idea.  I'd love to do that.

....and no eating the coffee!

Discussing references, I think my favourite (and obscure) one is the one in S1 Ep3, "Art", everytime they wave their hands in front of their faces (dancer stylee - "I can be conceptual!"), it's a reference to Showgirls.

I love it!

I was watching Spaced with a friend today who actually didn't get the reference to The Empire Strikes Back at the end of the penultimate episode of the second series.  This got me thinking is their any parts of the show which you are sure are references that you are just not sure from and what is your favorite reference.  My personal favorite at the moment (they change daily) is the Sixth Sense one.  I can't remember the exact wording but "because we hit her" and "allriiight"  *drive off* never fails to get a laugh from me.

The Sixth Sense one is a huge favourite  (I think it's Mike amost squeeking, "A lady!" which does it for me), as is the Robocop one from E3 of S2.

As for S1, the aforementioned Showgirls reference I love, and I like the reference to The Terminator at the end of the Paintball episode ("...there's a storm coming..." ).

The reference I never got, was "Bottle Rocket", because I've never seen the movie.

I never got the reference in S1, Ep2 when Tim grabs Daisy's arm and says 'Trust Me'. Apparantly it was from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Aye the Sixth Sense one is great, they even got Olivia Williams to play the part of the female cyclist.... I had to watch it and type it up....

Tim: Come on!! *beeps horn* What is the hold up?
Mike: There's been an accident, somebody got hurt...
Tim: Who?
Mike: A lady....
Tim: How do you know?
Mike: Because we hit her...
Tim: Did we?
Mike: Yea, that's her there..

[cut to just outside Tim's window, A lady biker is standing right outside]

Lady: What the hell do you think you are doing!! It's broad bloody daylight, you people have no consideration for cylcists..
[Tim Winds down his window]
Tim: Pardon?
Lady: What the hell do you think you are doing!! It's broad bloody daylight, you people have no consideration for cylcists..
Tim: Alriighht! What's your problem??

"It's important, Daisy.  Trust me."

Pegg does say that it's an increditbly obscure one, and doubts that anyone would've noticed.

I also like the Jurassic Park references:

"That's how it all starts, with 'ooh' and 'ahh', but then there's barking and biting." - paraphrasing Jeff Goldblum's line in The Lost World.

And... "Clever boys" in S2 Ep5, when Duane Benzie gets his come-uppance, is from Jurassic Park.

It's wonderful how they seemed to get tired of the endless reference spotting in the S2 commentry, coming up with brilliant made up stuff like:

That car is a reference to other cars...

That 4 is a reference to Thunderbird 4...
