Just brilliant. I totally wish I knew Daisy and Tim (and Colin of course). It's a pity there were only two seasons, but every single episode is a gem.
My longstanding crush on Simon Pegg has been reaffirmed!

Absolutely delightful, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright are brilliant. It is great fun to see the beginnings of their comedy and its influence in "Shawn of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz".

Once again the British produce a TV series that could never be made in North America. Smart, funny, and lacking in the usual "oh we can't say or do THAT for fear of the conservative right wing!"

Great sitcom, wish it would have lasted longer. So much more could have happened with this show. Recommend this to any Simon Pegg fan. Good afternoon filler!

A hilarious British sitcom! Great for anyone who likes Simon Pegg's other works including Sean of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Geeky, funny, and a teensy bit romantic.

This is my favorite TV show of all time. It's witty, always interesting, and is full of sci-fi and pop culture references that never get old. Simon Pegg is a comedic genius, Jessica Hynes is wonderfully fantastic as the oddball cute girl, and they both have a wonderful relationship that one wishes would become more than simple friendship. This show is great and if one ever wants something laugh out loud funny to watch, look no further than Spaced.

Daisy Steiner: You have a potentially fatal allergy to Brazil nuts...
Tim Bisley: Yes. I have no memory of Christmas 1979. Mind you, I have no memory of Christmas 1994 either.
Daisy Steiner: Oh, why not?
Tim Bisley: I don't know.

Daisy Steiner: Do you rent downstairs?
Brian: You mean am I gay?
Daisy Steiner: WHAT?
Brian: You mean am I gay?
Daisy Steiner: No, I meant "Do you rent the downstairs flat?"
Brian: Oh. Yep, sort of.
Tim: Are you gay?
Brian: Hmm?
Tim: Are you gay?
