Just watched that episode of Spaced where Tim, Brian and Daisy watch the Star Wars Trilogy...

and then rescue Colin the dog and the Imperial March remix tune is played at the start of the mission.

They are given codenames from the movies. God it was awesome. LOL

Have you seen the bit where Tim has a flashback to burning all his Star Wars stuff after watching Phantom Menace??? Shot just like Luke burning Vader in ROTJ...?

The whole show is an awesome geek-fest! Highly recommended!!!

I've never heard of it, but I'm going to have to look into it now.

another good 'un was where they go to find Marsha - think it was the penultimate episode - a great homage to Empire Strikes Back - complete with end credit titles and music.

on a non-SW note, Mike leading the clubbers in the A-Team dance is a piece of comedy genius 😃

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

A comedy genius

Spaced is really recommended to American Star Wars fans too.

Yeah!!!!

Anyone in the USA who has a PAL capable DVD player and is a SW, Matrix, comic book, Tolkien, zombie, etc fan or general geek should take a chance on it. For those that don't know it was a two-season TV show in Britain from the same creative team that brought us the hiliarious 'Shaun of the Dead'.

It can be purchased by mail from Amazon.UK for about $27.87 plus shipping. That's where I bought mine and shipping was only about $5 to the States. This set has the entire series plus extras!
