That's Nick Frost for you.

Speaking of which, does anyone watch his Ch5 show?

In true "Mike" stylee, Nick Frost has a survival show on Channel Five, called "Danger! Incoming Attack!".

He also narrated a fantastic C4 Documentary, "The Great British UFO Hoax".

Him and Pegg are doing their sitcom "La Triviata", which I think is about pub quizzers.

IMDB's Shaun Of The Dead References

There are a few omissions, like the shopping trolley, and the fact that Shaun lives in the same street as Mr Benn.  But I think that's pretty good.

There are two series', "Danger! 50,000 volts" and "Danger! Incoming Attack", they get repeated every now and then.

Now why would anyone be proud of referencing Mr. Benn of all shows?

I just started to watch the second series today and I thought it was cool. The first episode was excellent with the Agents and the robot wars one was good with Daisy having a job from hell.

It is good that Mike has got more scenes then series one.

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??

[The van screeches off, running over her bycicle]

Oh my god that scene was brill. Mike was just funny when he put on that voice.

Yeah that scene is cool. For me Tekken 3 is a very hard game to play.

I did had time to watch series 2 episode 6 before I go to college. I not sure that you mention this film reference before.

I like the scene where it was Daisy’s birthday and they all had an argument and throwing the cake at each other. Then suddenly the waiter points at the piano guy and he played a tune to make them stop. It just like the film Bugsy Malone.

Oh yeah and Tim is a big fan of Buffy.

The theory is, that Mike's feeling towards Tim are more of a child-like crush, like hero-worship.  Mike and Tim's relationship works because it's never fully defined, and I hope it stays that way.

I like the episode where Tim and Daisy go out and end up fighting with that gang of kids.

I nearly pissed myself when Tim was in the toilet with one of them and he was talking about Kia-Ora......

'Moooottthhhheeeer fuuuuuu....'

I have to say that considering that most peoples favorite episode is the clubbing one in Series One.  This is a pretty close second.

I think the combination of the play-gun-fight mixed with the music from Platoon (as well as the fanstastic "BloodBubble" by The Bluetones) makes that one of the best episodes.

Well they are best friends and I agree with what you say “Let hope it stays that way”

I agree again!

Another film reference from season 2 is from the episode Mettle where Daisy had a job interview. Daisy explains why she think she didn’t do well with her pass jobs is because she has got two opposing forces inside her.

There they show a scene of her sensible side – she dressed like Sandra Dee then turn to a scene of her reckless side – she dresses in a black leather outfit just like Sandy in Grease.

Not sure about that one anymore as episode 4 on series 1 is slowly becoming a fav what with Mike spitting paint from his mouth towards the end   laff
I am finding it quite hard to choose a fav episode but I can say my two fav characters at the moment (subject to change) is Tires and Mike.

Habits will change though, I'll probably post a new favorite soon  wink

I haven't seen series 2 yet, hoping to get it soon though. My favourite episode from series 1 is Episode 3, with Vulva (David Walliams). I love the ending of that episode:



Daisy: Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits, rabbits, rabbits!

or not.....

Just to get this thread going again, does anyone have a particular favourite Guest Star in Spaced? I'd have to go for Keith whats'his'name, as Tims Step Dad. Or of course David Walliams.

[edit] ah, double posted, sorry...

Not sure about my favourite guest stars Coliette.

I bought the spaced dvds a while ago and they rock. I watched season 1 and 2 in a night. It was great!  big grin

The only bit that got me mad was at the end of episode 7 in series 2. (Spoilered for those who haven't seen the end of season 2:

But the funniest bits have to be making up with Marsha, the robot club and the shooting bit with the children.  laff  laff  laff

I'm glad someone bumped this..

Spaced Out, the semi official/unnofficial web home of all things Spaced and Spaced-related has shut down due to monster bandwidth consumption.

If anyone knows some good cheap hosting firms, I point you towards the index page for a gander.

Everyone else, send good vibes to Nick Lee!

I saw that, I'm kinda disappointed, as it's my second favourite message board.  I hope they get it back going again.

Coilette: Keith Allen?  The fantastic "The Shining" (one of many) reference ("Timmy boy!!!!" )  I love it!

I think my favourite(s) have to be Kevin Eldon and Mark Gatiss as the agents and clearly trying to out-Hugo Weaving each-other in Ep1 of S2. 

Also in the same episode, getting John Simm (from Human Traffic) in to guest star, and not giving him any lines!

It's a real shame about Spaced-Out too, I really liked that site.

I watched eps 3, 4, 5 and 6 of Series 1 today, and should add Paul Kaye to the list of favourite guests, playing the fantastic Hoover:

Hoover: I 'ate your mum, and I 'ate you!
Daisy: Brilliant, brilliant.

I think Davie broached this subject before, but has anyone noticed something that they're sure was a reference (specifically in S1) and are not sure about it.

In E5 of S1, where they're on their way to rescue Colin, there are numerous cuts between the characters in Mike's van, Twist crossing herself, and Tim lifts his hand up to his face, sees that his hand is shaking, so he hides it from the others.

I'm sure I've seen that in some movie before, but I can't place which.  Or I may be going mad.

Ah thanks for that Melll. Yeah Hoover is pretty funny. I was saying to myself is that the guy was use to be Denis Penis and after I read your thread yeah it was Paul Kaye. So I would say he my fave guest.

That must include the line: "Good luck, and I'll see you at the beach" (although it's actually "Beech", referring to the Beech Tree Inn which Tim says where they should meet if they get split up.)
