FROM THE CREATORS OF SHAUN OF THE DEAD AND HOT FUZZ COMES
THE AWARD-WINNING CULT COMEDY SPACED: THE COMPLETE SERIES
“The one, the only…Spaced. Accept no substitute”
Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill)
New Exclusive Commentary By Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Bill Hader, Matt Stone, Patton Oswalt and Diablo Cody
May 5, 2008 – This July, the clever and edgy comedy series that started it all for the award-winning team behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Spaced will be available for the first time in North America in a new collector’s DVD set from BBC VideoÔ. From creator-stars Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson) (Shaun of the Dead, Son of Rambow), this 3-disc set features all 14 surreal episodes of the award-winning show, described by Pegg as “a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and Northern Exposure.” Spaced: The Complete Series will arrive in stores on July 22, 2008 for suggested retail price of $49.98.
I actually feel sorry for the British fans if they won’t have Region 2 versions of these new special features.
For anyone who doesn’t know what
Spaced is, I highly recommend it to anyone who’s into geek pop culture, slackerism, or British comedy. I think it’s the best show to come out of the UK in the last 10 years. It’s brilliant!

Wow, there were only 14 episodes?
The whole finger-gun, slow-motion Matrix-y battle in order to get out of a dire situation is a running gag with my friends, thanks to this show.
This was a really great show. And don’t let the “from Shaun of the Dead guys” thing scare you off.
