How’s That For a Slice of Fried Gold?

May 7, 2008

Spaced is probably my favorite sitcom of all time.  It’s better than Seinfeld, it’s better than Arrested Development, it’s better than the Simpsons.  And it’s finally, FINALLY going to be available to American audiences.  Created by the same team that brought us Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Spaced has been held up in production limbo for years due to music-rights issues (fans of the State, I feel you), but things have FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY been sorted out, and the Region 1 discs will be out in July.  Truth be told, I already own the Region 2 Complete Series, which I bought while I was in school in Scotland, and actually purchased a region-free DVD player in order to watch the series again here in the states, only to be thwarted by the fact that it was not, in fact, a region-free DVD player.  Balls, huh?  Oh well, I’ll get my chance come July, and don’t be surprised if I try to harangue some of you into watching the entire thing, marathon style.  I’m proselytizing this shit from the mountaintop, y’all.
