Finally we get to see Spaced!

Tim: She's shallow, Brian. She's like Cordelia out of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and latterly Angel, the spin off series which is set in LA.
Brian: Don't know what you're talking about.
Tim: Brian, you're such a square!

What do you get when you mix one part Jessica Stevenson, two parts Simon Pegg, one part Star Wars, three parts comic book, and twelve parts Ed....

Yes thanks to BBC America us Americans who don't have region free DVD players will finally get to see what I hear is one of the funniest shows to come along in a great while.

From the people who gave us Shaun of the Dead (after they did Spaced actually) Spaced chronicles the agony and ecstasy of two disillusioned Gen X-ers adrift in a world where reality is as subjective as their taste in shoes. Defeated by the horrors of apartment hunting, Tim (Simon Pegg), a love-sick skateboarder, and Daisy (Jessica Stevenson), a wannabe journalist, pose as a professional couple to score themselves a cheap place to live. However, with their landlady’s large capacity for cigarettes and alcohol and the increase in sexual tension, Tim and Kate’s new place is far from ordinary.

Spaced premieres Friday, June 23, 11:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. PT.

To wet your appetite here's a scene from Spaced:

For those of you who don't have BBC America here's the premiere episode:

This is good to know, as I'd set the TiVo to grab a few episodes of this, wondering if it was the show I thought it was, since the guide didn't have any info whatsoever beyond 'comedy'. Now I have some cool viewing for the weekend.
