Time away from the blog has been spent in the thick of SXSW prep and planning. But, every once in a while, we get a chance to take a breather. Recently I did so, and watched an entire season of Spaced, the UK sitcom from the same folks behind Shaun of the Dead. It proved to be just what the doctor ordered, for some escapism.
You can really only find the DVDs as imports for now, but hopefully Shaun of the Dead will reach enough of a cult status one day that this will make it to U.S. retail. It’s sort of the anti-Coupling, blended with the sensibility of The Office. That’s high praise, I know, but it’s worthy. Seek it out, if you can.
