    Jaffa cakes are the best. For all you North Americans: They’re sold in the US as Pim’s Cookies. You can get them at any Albertsons, Smith’s or Wal-Mart.

    Mmm Jaffa Cakes.
    Damn. Only one shop in Melbourne that sells them and I can’t get there today.
    I’ll have to have marmalade on toast and sprinkle cocoa on the top.
    Or…not.

    Watching Spaced for the first time was like having a projector rammed in my skull, wired into my brain and watching it project on the wall.
    I love every second. And continue to.
    Well done sir.

    I thought this was yesterday. Cool, today’s also the fifth anniversary of the day SHAUN opened in the States! Brilliant day all ’round!

    SPACED always makes me happy, seemingly no matter how many times over I watch it. I’ll probably still be picking up on little references and side jokes on the 20th birthday too.

    ‘Spaced’ one of the coolist shows I ever saw on BBC America (‘SKINS’ is a close second).

    Spaced, the only TV show to keep me out of the pub on a Friday night & sat at home in front of my TV, i would record it on my VCR, cut the adverts out & watch it again & again throughout the week till the next episode & i’m still just as hooked today, it never gets old.

    Oh that looks like the most delicious anniversary cake ever! I love Jaffa cakes! Living in Toronto doesn’t allow me to enjoy them on a daily basis.

    Also, i noticed in some pictures from the Paul website that there was a schnauzer on set. Is that the dog who played Colin or was that just a random schnauzer?

    • Slick

      That’s actually Simon’s beloved dog, Minnie. She’s a Schnauzer, just like Ada, who played Colin. Looks a lot like Ada as well.

    Couldn’t you have stumped up for a typewriter cake though?

    Happy Birthday Kitten!

    I vividly remember sitting there that night, waiting for the young Pegg to appear on my screen!
    Even the previews were incredibly over excited at the amazing visual flair that the ludicrously young director was bringing to it.

    Am def going to sit down and watch it tonight. After Friends, as is its rightful place (and pretend I am still 25!!).

      I must add I haven’t forgotten about Daisy – as if! but did my pic for twitter, and Ms Hynes not on twitter. I of course love Jessica Hynes nee Stevenson, she made me want to be a writer. Appy Anniversary!

    I was lucky enough to be at The Bloor for the Spaced Marathon. Kept thinking I’d stay for “one more”, getting late, last bus, blah, blah. 14 episodes and a jaffa cake later, i couldn’t believe it was over. Even tho I knew every scene off by heart, it was one of the best evenings in the dark I’d ever had. It was fun, wasn’t it Edgar.
    The question I didn’t get to ask was-whose idea was the Bugsy Malone food fight?

    Random question – do you find it difficult to get your hands on Jaffa Cakes when in the US or Canada? I find most Americans are oblivious to their delicious existance
