Can you read?

We're waiting on series three, while Simon and Jess do other things.  Simon has just finished shooting a movie (see my last post), and Jess is doing some drama (or somesuch).

It will be back, and meanwhile is being repeated on Paramount in the UK.  Or if you miss it loads, go buy the DVD's.

No, I don't think they were.  Possibly Series One only.  Like I said, Play.com have both DVD's for 8.99 each (that's less than half price), and ship to anywhere in the world.

Go buy 'em.

Might have to bite the bullet if you really want them.  I've got them both and can say that they're totally worth it.

Commentary's from Simon, Jess and Edgar Wright (director), with guests popping in for different episodes: Mark Heap (Brian), Nick Frost (Mike) and Julia Deakin (Marsha).

Deleted scenes (with and without commentary), out-takes (which are hilarious).

S2 DVD has the brilliant "Homage-O-Meter", a subtitle track which points out each reference as it happens (and there's loads).

Yup, I especially loved the "World Staring Championships".

Oh, and I saw that "Brocolli" bit in the deleted scenes (on S1 DVD) which is pure genius.

The world staring contest was hillarious. Was Big Train also the one where the dad was trying to teach his kid to ride a bike and he would have accidents like catching fire and being decapitated??

What can I say, I'm a fan, it's my second favourite show, behind Futurama.

Here's another couple of good ones:

Mike: All terrain rambling, comes in all forms of outdoor pursuits, canoeing, rambling, killing.
Daisy: Killing?
Mike: (sobbing) No. No killing.

---- Later that same episode:

Mike: You don't think it looks too feminine?
Twist & Daisy: Nooo!
Tim: Of course it looks too feminine, it's a girls top, get away from him.  Mike, don't let them dress you up like a gigantic cock.
Mike: I used to have to dress as an Isreali woman once.
Tim: Did you?
Mike: Well, I didn't have to.
Tim: We should talk.

Alrighty then, here it is, everyone do the "Mike" (no diagrams or screenshots, sorry):

Move 1: Salute left, salute right.
Move 2: Shotgun left, shotgun right.
Move 3: Shotgun in the air, maniac stylee.
Move 4: Throws gun away, standard "big fish, little fish" clubbing dance.
Move 5: Twin handgun left, twin handgun right.
Move 6: Handgun in the mouth, blow brains out.

Mike: Only for the, only for the, only for the hardcore UK raver!

I'd go with Melll on this one - he's pretty addicted to the show, but then so I am.  My favourite scene is from episode 2 of series 2, when Tim gets angry with a kid who wants a Jar Jar Binks doll.  Simon Pegg's comedy timing is genius.

It's the "What a prick" line which does it for me.  laff

I think the whole backstory to why Tim hates The Phantom Menace is really cool, and makes a great argument.  The real reason this was written in, was that Simon Pegg is a big Star Wars nerd and hated The Phantom Menace, and after careful homages to TPM in series one (the scene with Daisy in the dogs home, "We put them down, all of them", "Noooooooo!" - is taken from the trailer for TPM).

Also, Lucasfilm didn't let them use anything when making the first series, but "saw the affection" they had for Star Wars, so when making the second series, gave Spaced free reign to use what they wanted.  Which they did.

Here's the comic-shop scene:

Tim: People like you make me sick!  You don't understand, you weren't there at the beginning, this is it for you, this jumped-up firework display of a toy advert.  I don't care if you saved all your 50p's, take your money, and get out!
Kid: *sobs and runs out*
Tim: What a prick.

----later, with Bilbo (Bill Bailly):

Tim: He wanted a Jar Jar doll, for christs sake!
Bilbo: Kids like Jar Jar. 
Tim: Why?
Bilbo: What about the Ewoks?  They were rubbish!
Tim: Jar Jar Binks makes the Ewoks look like fucking Shaft!

Truer words were never spoken.

I'd forgotten that bit, it had me in stitches, in fact I laughed out loud when I just read it again  laff

Spaced is muchly excellnt... one of my favourites is from S1E3, the ep that first got me into the show:

Brian:<walks into Tim & Daisy's flat, his face through a paint spattered torn canvas that covers the rest of his body...>
Tim: You've got some paint on you...

Not sure exactly...

Brian: It's a literal(?) tribute to the self reflexivity of Rembrant (sp?)
Tim: Oh, did he like it
Brian: He's dead
Tim: Bloody hell that really backfired.

Also, a gag I've only noticed recently that I really liked was in S1E2 when Tim takes a time out from the party he says something about everyone getting older, into which Mike mentions his cousin who is in fact getting younger. "The government are trying to keep it quiet though" or something like that. Can't believe I hadnt noticed it before.

I really should stop doing these "best bits" cos it's not fair as the whole show is orgasm inducing.

Literally.

Another thing  smile (sorry):

Also in that scene:

Bilbo: I was like you once Tim, blond hair, childlike ears, full of beans and spunk. I sometimes let my principles get the better of me. I once punched a guy in the face for saying Hawk The Slayer was rubbish.
Tim: Good for you
Bilbo: Thanks. But that's not the point Tim. What I should have done was say, "You're right Dad. Let's give Krull a try, and we'll discuss it later"

Sorry for this shoddy quoting, Im going from memory.   cry

I'd seen it on the Spaced Board, and I think they're dual encoded, like the Futurama ones.  But, like I said earlier, you may have to bite the bullet and fork out, if you really want them.

Aussie Thread on Spaced Forum

Here's another couple of my favourite moments (both from S1:E4):

Daisy: Well, you know, I was upset, but I'm not anymore.  In the end, our relationship was just like a sandwich toaster.  You forget you've got one.  It just sits there at the top of the cupboard collecting a layer of greasy fudge, and even if you do see it, you assume it's broken because you think if it was working then you'd be using it all the time, surely.  But you don't and it just sits there.  One day you get an overwhleming desire for toasted sandwiches, and you get it down, and it works, and you can't believe it, and you make every kind of sandwich there is, you have toasted sandwich parties.  You make marmite and cheese and chocolate and...
Tim: ..pilchards..
Daisy: ..and banana and...
Bilbo: ..acorns...
Daisy: ..acorns.  Then as quickly as the desire comes, it goes.  Then you put the toasted sandwich maker away, and you know what?
Bilbo & Tim: What?
Daisy: You don't miss it.
Bilbo: So what you're saying is, don't hide your toasted sandwich maker away, use him regularly, and you'll get the most out of him.
Tim: Nah, she's saying, chuck your boyfriend, have a sandwich.

---------------------

Three good Star Wars movies later:

(Tim and Brian are in floods of tears)
Tim: So moving...(sobs)
Brian: Little Ewoks, an entire empire brought to it's knees by small furry creatures.
Tim: My point exactly.
Daisy: Leave him alone.
Tim: Brian, did you notice that everything thay transpired in those three films, and I mean everything, can be put down to the actions of one very minor character.
Brian: Who?
Tim: The gunner on the Star Destroyer at the beginning of the first film.
Brian: How come?
Tim: Well, because if the gunner had shot the pod which C3PO and R2 were in, they wouldn't have got to Tattooine, they wouldn't have met Luke, Luke wouldn't have met Ben, they wouldn't have met Han and Chewie, they wouldn't have rescued Princess Leia, none of it would have happened.
Brian: Chaos theory.
Tim: Eh?
Brian: The predictability of random events.  The notion that reality as we know it, past, present and future, is in fact a mathamatically predictable pre-ordaned system.
Daisy: So, somewhere out there in the vastness of the unknown, is an equation, for predicting the future?
Brian: An equation so complex as to utterly defy any possibility of comprehension, even by the most brilliant human mind, but an equation nonetheless.
Tim: Oh my god.
Brian: What?
Daisy: What?
Tim: I've got some fucking Jaffa Cakes in my coat pocket!

That's the "Say Anything" homage, I love that too.

The Robot Wars episode I love for the beginning, the "Robocop" homage. 

Has anyone seen the movie which is homaged later on?  It has Mike and Tim in yellow overalls, referencing a movie called "Bottle Rockets" - it had Luke and Owen Wilson in it.

Until Simon (Pegg - Tim), Nick (Frost - Mike) and Edgar (Wright - Director), finish up doing their movie, Shawn Of The Dead which is currently in the editing stage, there'll be no word yet.  Early word on the movie (which stars Simon, Nick, and Jess makes an appearance, I think) is that it looks good.  An advance trailer was shown at a Horror Film festival, and got good reaction.

UK News is that Channel Four may be re-running Series 2 before the end of the year, so look out for that one.
