Spaced (1999–2001)

Director: Edgar Wright
Writers:  Simon Pegg, Jessica Stevenson
Cast:       Simon Pegg, Jessica Stevenson, Nick Frost, Julia Deakin, Mark Heap

Two people Tim and Daisy, who meet accidentally in a restaurant, pretend to be a couple to live in the only apartment that they can afford.

It is basically the Cornetto Trilogy crew + Jessica Stevenson before they made it big in the British film industry. You can see all the elements that make Cornetto trilogy great in this TV series which was broadcast in Channel 4. It is different from other British comedies with plenty of references to scenes from famous Hollywood blockbusters like Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, Shining, Matrix, One Flew Over Cuckoo's nest etc thrown in. It might not be as enjoyable for those who haven't seen these films.

A must watch for those who love Cornetto Trilogy. Just 14 episodes over two seasons.

Rating: 5/5
