Today’s topic will be one of my favorite British sitcoms called Spaced. I love British humor, especially if it’s accompanied by awkward main characters who procrastinate their life away and if one of the leads is my favorite blonde actor Simon Pegg!!!
The whole show is retarded, not in the Japanese tentacle weird kind of
way, but in a way you meet all these quirky, colorful characters who face life’s mundane situations with such ineptness that it’s hard not to relate, especially if you’re a couch potato like me who’s not afraid to eat food off the ground.
The plot of Spaced is centered around Tim – an aspiring comic book artist who often throws manic tantrums every time someone mentions the “Phantom Menace” Star Wars movie, and Daisy – an aspiring writer, who’s attempting to advance her career of writing by doing ANYTHING other than actual writing and often avoiding it at all costs!
The two decide to live together and to get the only apartment they could afford they would have to pretend to be a couple. To be honest, I’ve been brainwashed by so many cheesy romance movies with a sexy female lead with dimples, I thought this would end in a sudden romantic relationship where the two would fall in love and buy a freaking pet goldfish, but I was dead wrong, which was an awesome surprise! Tim and Daisy go through their days just like any other bored humans: Tim playing video games till morning, Daisy being overly enthusiastic about everything and daydreaming of traveling the world. No falling in love in sight! Yaaaay! I HATE ROMANCES!
This mighty gawky duo wouldn’t be complete without the sidekicks. We have Tim’s best friend who wants to join the British Army and is “slightly” obsessed with the military, Daisy’s best friend is a self proclaimed fashion diva and the cherry on top is Brian who lives downstairs. He is an angsty, rather pretentious artist with many, many, many issues and emotional problems…and also is hot! *author’s own opinion*
There are a few other characters who are worth mentioning, but I will just leave you with the meat and potatoes, since this is starting to be a bit of a spoiler alert review. Sorry…am not! O_O
I spent almost every day watching this show from morning till night, even made the boyfriend watch it with me, so my mission is to make someone out there on this forsaken pale blue dot planet to watch it as well! Come on, between the glamorous restaurants and disco parties, you can squeeze in a few hundred hours of telly time! Am I right???
That’s it for today guys! Let me know if you’ve seen Spaced, if you found this post interesting and what are your current favorite comedy sitcoms and/or movies! I’m always on the hunt for new TV stuff, so please enlighten me so I would avoid real life problems by staring at a screen. YAAY!
