Spaced, The 10 Year Anniversary Post!

It was 10 years ago, this very evening.

Sandwiched somewhat amusingly between Friends and Frasier, was the first episode of SPACED on C4.

Am very touched by the various articles that have been printed and posted today.

Please click the links and enjoy.

And to celebrate further – here’s some yet unseen (on the web) footage of our 2007 reunion Q&A | Spaced on Stage, BFI – November 10th, 2007

“You lucky people. Oi oi”

    I read about this series on imdb by accident, I liked and heard about Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.. I downloaded a few episodes and this show was excellent! I wish they would continue it!n

    I believe I heard Simon say that they might publish all the Spaced scripts for the 10th year anniversary. Is that still going to happen?

    I was also at the BFI that wonderful day almost two years ago. I was actually the person who asked the final question of the Q&A, though my audio was cut (woe, etc.).

    It really was the most blissful day ever – watching back-to-back episodes of Spaced in a room full of fellow nerds and the people who created it in the first place. I remember after the opening scene of S1E1, when ‘Spaced’ flashed up on the screen, Simon shouting ‘It’s brilliant, isn’t it!’ :D (and, of course, the pre-emptive excitement before the immortal Jaffa Cake line, and the whole auditorium applauding after it had been spoken).

    Spaced was, and continues to be, bloody brilliant. Thanks, Edgar – for the show, and this post :)

    Spaced really was the greatest TV show of the 90’s, and I’m still to see anything better than it in the last ten years. Genius.

    Thanks for this. Thank you for Spaced. Would the last 10 years of our lives have made any sense without it? I will never give up hope for the fabled third series!!

    Happy Birthday Spaced!

    I can’t even imagine what must be going through your head. I’d wager a guess that it’s equal parts pride of accomplishment and “Holy shit, it’s been ten years? TEN?”, yeah?

    Also, it’s the 250th anniversary of Guinness. I guess I know what I’ll be drinking and watching tonight.
