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.

FINALLY. Tomorrow night marks the first new episode of LOST in 253 days (not to mention the Season 3 Finale re-airing tonight with bonus information.) Sadly, we’re being shorted half a season due to the ongoing writers strike, but we still have eight straight weeks of LOST to look forward to.

Previously on LOST: Charlie’s dead. The Looking Glass is flooded. It’s not Penny’s boat. Locke saw Walt, has work to do.  Jack’s got a beard and an alcohol problem. In the future. “We have to go back!” Oh man, oh man. It’s on.

LOST, explained in 8 minutes:
