1) the superb Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) sitcom SPACED is finally getting a US DVD release. No word yet on whether music has been changed, but either way this is fantastic news. Quite possibly the greatest nerd sitcom ever will now be available to lesser geeks everywhere. (And by 'lesser' I simply mean unable to acquire/play DVDs from outside of the US easily. Us uber-geeks already own it on DVD due to thoughtful geek girlfriends.)
Sure-fire way to ruin my day? Point out to me that FOX is set to Ameri-make™ my most favorite of cult classic Brit television series, "Spaced." Want to make it worse? Tell me that it's being written by "Will & Grace" and "Desperate Housewives" writers, and helmed by "Chuck" and "Supernatural" creator (and "Charlie's Angels" director) McG.
If you haven't seen this fine series, and you like smart/funny things, and/or nerd things (i.e. Star Wars, comic books, science fiction, zombies, videogames, movies, etc) I highly recommend picking up a copy at the usual location. Better yet, if you have a region-free DVD player, you can pick up the excellent 2-season box set from amazon.co.uk. It has loads of extras, including a Reference-O-Meter subtitle track to help you make sense of the few references you missed.
UPDATE: In case you are hesitant to download a show you know nothing about, the first episode is available on YouTube.
