Trivia

According to Simon Pegg, what the future held for the characters was always left ambiguous at the end of the show. But that hasn't stopped him imagining where they wound up. Tim and Daisy end up together and have a daughter. Pegg said it was always the plan to get them together, even if it never occurred throughout the show. Brian has a long and happy life with Twist and after his death, his work becomes incredibly popular and sells for millions. Twist winds up in suspended animation and awakes in the future where she finds, to her disgust, everyone wearing silver. Mike ends up with Dexter and moves to South London. Pegg added if there had been a third series, it would end in a Blake's 7 style shoot-out. But he and Stevenson knew the Series 2 finale would be the very last episode while they were writing it.

Possibly the best thing to ever happen to television
10 January 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The whole two series was as close to perfect as I can imagine. Funny, beautifully shot, well-produced, the only downside was that there wasn't more of it. Perhaps the reason that it wasn't as successful as it should have been was that it didn't get a large enough audience. It was aired in a time when "The Royle Family" undeservedly won all the awards and praise, whereas Spaced was considered to be aimed at immature adolescents, film parodies and comic book references only worthy of an audience that doesn't know quality when they see it. And this is a tragedy, because, if television series' can be considered art form by any stretch of the imagination, then this is a masterpiece, something to be admired by others, a definite benchmark for all other programmes.
