After enjoying Shaun of the Dead and believing that Hot Fuzz was made for me personally, I couldn't wait to see Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's BBC series Spaced. Well, obviously I could wait because it's already 2008 and I'm just now getting the DVD. I never watched it until the legitimate release from BBC video came out.

DVD Review: Spaced

I'm sorry to say, I just don't get it. I mean, I get that it's a sitcom about slackers making sci-fi references, but it just doesn't work for me. I gave it a good three episodes.

Maybe it's just a British thing. They weren't making this for a worldwide audience so it's more insular. Or maybe they really hadn't honed their satire yet. At least it was good practice for creating their works of art. It's funny how I love some British things and then others just go right over my head (like my 50/50 appreciation of Monty Python).

I still enjoyed hearing the boys do commentary with random guests like Kevin Smith and Matt Stone. They just sort of schmooze but it's cool to be let in on that.
