Spaced is a good show to sink your teeth into when you have some time to kill. It's clever, and the concept and aesthetical approach to the show is is rather unique. Speaking of British tv, got into some of Charlie Brooker's mini series lately, those are definitely worth it if you're looking for a quirky and whip smart satire of all facets in popular culture. He's also the guy that made Dead Set, the first zombie show that predated the Walking Dead.
Yeah I'm a big fan and only came across that bit of info not long ago. Went to the concert in Heaton Park last June. Wasn't the greatest due to the layout not exactly suiting their style of music and Brown never being a great live singer, but the experience of being able to say I've seen them live was something to behold. Didn't know about My Bloody Valentine, exciting stuff.
Yeah I should have checked out Spaced a while back. Big fan of the Pegg/Frost pairing and be interesting to see their TV work compared to the likes of Shaun of the Dead & Hot Fuzz. Aye I'm well aware of Charlie Brooker and his quality programmes. Guy is one of the only tolerable TV figures going at the moment and continually entertains me whether its in a column or through his shows. Know Craig in particular is a huge admirer of his work.
