I should add that there are preview screenings for Shaun across the States today, the movie opens proper next Friday.

Has anyone seen the pics of the new Spaced disks in DVD Review?  In additional to the new cover artwork, there are some awesome new caricatures on the disks themselves.

Disk 3 features "Archive footage of the first time Simon and Jess appeared on TV together", which may mean that it'll be a few clips of Asylum.  Which'll be nice.

Although I haven't shared any of my Leeds Festival experiences on here because they'll be of little interest to most people, one that you may find amusing is that they showed Shaun of the Dead! At night, the dance tent was turned into a mini theatre, and on the saturday night they gathered a large crowd for everybody's favourite RomZomCom (we lucky devils managed to be near the front, and were even kept entertained by a rather excellent juggler beforehand). One lovely little coincidence was a little short film that they showed before the movie, which was about a guy who walks into a diner and orders 67 cups of coffee and proceeds to drink them all (sound familiar?).

The watching of the movie itself was (extremely) cold being a windy night and the tent not providing much of a barrier, and my back was more sore than a hedgehog after making love with a broom, but I didn't really give a fuck. Shaun!!!

EDIT: Melll - Have just gotten round to reading the whole of this thread, and if you need any webspace without ads or restrictions or anything, i'd be happy to host your Spaced/SOTD site at www.samuelhdiamond.co.uk  - I have loads of space, and unlimited subdomains  wink

Then drop me an e-mail, dude, and we'll sort it out. I can't give you direct FTP access, but i'm hoping to set up some sort of uploader akin to aslate's PEEL uploader. 'Slate, if you read this, any help on how to do that would be most appriciated, as PHP is baffling me somewhat.  wink

Also: I agree that 'BloodBubble' by The Bluetones is an awesome piece of music, I leapt onto the sadly-departed Spaced-Out after I first saw 'Gone' to find out it's title. Took me a while to find, but it now has a proud place on iBob. Silly though that it never made it onto the soundtrack compliations.

You have mail, thanksyou!

Since the demise of Spaced-Out, I'm keen to get the title of the music which plays out the end of Series Two, as it's been used an awful lot since (on charity ads and such).

My Spaced/Shaun site will continue, as Spaced-Out doesn't have scripts, references or framegrabs.

The Spaced-Out forum isn't back yet though.  hmpf

Actually, I'm glad Spaced-Out is back, it means I can go and look up some useful info, especially on the music.

I grabbed a copy of the song which plays out S2, Lemon Jelly's "The Staunton Lick", awesome. 

I'd previously tried to get stuff by The Sons Of Silence (the guys who do the music for Shaun Of The Dead were The Sons Of Silence, and their music features heavily in Spaced.)

Now, to find that copy of Fader Gladiator.

EDIT: Below is one of the pics which will appear on the disks of the specials edition box set.

*drools*

I'm offering to sell my boxset to my friend when I get the new one. Is 10 me getting ripped off, or her getting ripped off? I need advice!  confused

Also, I've done another scene of the script tonight Melll. It's coming along slowly but surely.  wink

10 is a fairly generous price for a mate.  And let's face it, you can pick up the new ones for about 17 (online pre-order).

Which leaves seven quid to find.

Everyone wins.

Well I am going to trade in my old Spaced DVD for a new one from a Video/DVD’s/Computer games shop in town. I went to the shop the other day to ask if it ok for trading the Spaced DVD and they said that it is fine with them as long as they got the new DVD.

Anyway what do you guys think?

Hey, the characters fit rather nicely into that scheme! If:

Fry = Shaun
Leela = Liz
Bender = Ed
Amy = Diane
Kif = David
Zapp = Pete
Farnsworth/Cubert = Barbara/Phillip

It could possibly pose as a passable parody.

There are Spaced connections there too:

Fry = Tim
Leela = Daisy
Bender = Mike
Amy = Twist
Kif = Brian
Farnsworth (or Mom) = Marsha
Zapp = Duane Benzie

Sammy, I haven't forgotten to email you the files, I'm a bit tied up with work and stuff at the moment, I'll get them to you ASAP.

No worries. The only problem I can see is that as from Saturday, i'll be at Uni, where the dataport in my room will apparently not allow FTP access for some wankeringly stupid reason. But i'll find a way around it.

Hmmm, i'm not sure what to do about these new Spaced DVDs. You see I bought them in that double pack that comes with a black box to keep both DVDs in. The black box has been signed to me personaly by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, so that's not going to be going anywhere. And the inside of the DVD cover for series two (the cool cartoon of the whole cast) is signed and framed too. I have to keep both disks in the series 1 case. A bit of a mess really but it was worth it to get the stuff signed. It just means that I'll have trouble selling them now. And I don't want to have duplicates. The main reason I want to get the new DVDs is because me and my sister are supposed to appear in one of the features. At the signing I went to in London there was a guy filming everything for Simon Pegg. He told us all to shout out "Oy Oy you lucky people" all at once.

Check the movie reviews thread over the next few days.  Both Slacky and EvilLunch have seen it already and gave it very favourable reviews.  Therefore gaining honourary membership into "Team Pie".

Meanwhile: My Spaced: Definitive Collectors Edition has been shipped by Sendit.com.  Today!  Woo!  big grin

No you mis-understand me Melllvar. I want to keep all the signed stuff and just sell the disks (which have no sleeves for the boxes since I'm keeping them because they're signed) Now you can see my problem.

Meanwhile: Why is it that Kate Ashfield is sexxier in her new movie, than she is in SOTD?

*there's genuine scares to be found among the laughs.  Also genuine drama.

It's the way the tension is built, there's a genuine menace, there's always something going on in the background.  It's said you could watch the movie, and just concentrate on what's going on around the principle characters.  Therein lies the movies genius (if you will).

*the soundtrack (why do I have to import the album from the UK if I want a copy?  WHY?)

Two of the Ash songs appear on the album "Meltdown", the Man Parrish song is on any Hip-Hop (sorry, Electro) compilation - and then there's Queen's Greatest Hits.

Seriously, no idea.  The soundtrack also features audio clips from the movie.

They say that David's transformation from pacifist is based on Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs.

..and God, do I ever want to see Spaced now!  Is there a North American release being considered, even?).

See further up this thread for a possible explanation.  Bravo did have the rights to show Spaced in the US, but only showed a couple of episodes.

Obviously, the interest in Spaced may be stimulated is SOTD is a hit, thereafter they may rethink the music licence thing.  One thing is for sure, they should (and will) never change it.

Then, you'll be where we are now.  smile

Well in its first week on release, Shaun made 3,500,000 million Dollars and got to 8th in the US top 10. Not bad seeing as it was only released in 600 cinemas compared to the usual 2000 or so.

I would like to thank Mellvar for starting this thread. Because thanks to him and the thread I was exposed to the genius that is this show. I first saw this thread when I was a regular member here. I was so pissed off because the show looked so good but I would never be able to see it.

Well two weeks ago Trio announced they were running the series, so I sat down and watched it and was just so blown away by it.

Then I went to see Shaun of The dead, easily the best comedy of the year.

Hi guys I have been working on the spaced video clip that I showed a few post back and it wasn’t working. I made an index page so hopefully the one video clip would work. I think I need to upload the video again so that it can really work.

That's quite alright.  Simon Pegg's got me on commission.  tongue  Seriously, Spaced doesn't have the audience to deserves, I'm almost single-handedly trying to do something about it.

Is Trio a cable-channel?  Glad you liked Shaun too, man.

I've been away for a few days with work, so I was happy to get back home for one night, and have a look through the new Spaced DVD.

I love the documentary, Skip To The End, loads of insight, plus Jess is absolutely stunning in it!

Has anyone see the 'end' yet then?

Yeah. Trio is this channel that really just shows odds and ends, like old pilots that never made it to air or canceled TV Shows like, God, The Devil and Bob. Also they show alot of music stuff from alot of different decades, from music performances to interviews. Also they show some cult films there too. Also they tend to show alot of the sitcoms and just generally stuff we don't get in America.

So it is a good channel to just leave on because you never know what you will come across. Some of it could be great or just okay or crap but at least you have seen it.

When I saw Spaced was on, I remember a post I made on this thread about being so jealous that I would never get to see the show.

Probably cut for timing - I cannot believe the cake throwing scene is cut.

Meanwhile...

The second DVD is a bit of a disappointment, as the first (and third, obviously) have all new menus - but the second one is the same as the previous.
