Trivia

As they were making a documentary about the series, Jessica Hynes, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright were looking around the 'Spaced house', and one the people who lived there came and told them that there were Spaced fans outside taking pictures of the house. As a joke, Simon and Jessica went outside and said "are you taking pictures of our house?" The fans just stood there for a few seconds, stunned. In good nature they chatted and then posed for photos.

Crazy Credits

Episode 1.6, which features the characters going out to a nightclub, replaces the usual names in the credits with hip hop style alternatives. For example, the show's writers and lead stars Jessica Stevenson and Simon Pegg become 'Jazzy Jess' and 'The Fresh Pegg'. See more »

20 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Spaced' is, for my money, one of the best comedy series produced in the English language in the last ten years; genuinely, laugh-out-loud funny, scrupulously well-written, brilliantly acted and with a kicking soundtrack that has introduced me, at least (and I'm guessing a few others) to some fantastic little-known bands (Using LemonJelly long before they were famous, for example) - this must rank alongside 'Black Books' in its cult-but-inclusive appeal. The true genius is in the fact that you could probably watch this with your vicar and - apart from a low swearing incidence - they would find little to criticise (unlike, say, equally funny but edgier shows; Chris morris' work for example) but it still makes perfect post-pub viewing. When one sees the dross that usually passes for sitcom in the UK, once-great Shakespearean actors mugging at the camera and silently cursing their agent as the canned laughter robotically shrieks, you wonder why they don't just hand over the entire comedy drama section of UK TV to Pegg, Stevenson, Bailey, Moran and Serafinowicz. Please make more. Please.
