I'm hoping that at least 60 of them are clip shows.

Spaced is pretty simple. It's as American as an English show would get. There's not too many Brit heavy references.

A homeless guy and girl meet, then pretend to be a couple to get an apartment. Tons of visual references to American movies and shit (Shining, Evil Dead, Pulp Fiction, etc.).

If you like Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz you'll like it a lot. I always tell people to watch at least 2 or 3 episodes before giving up. They're all on youtube.

Pete didn't like Spaced. I tried to convince him like 15 times. Give it a go.

You might also like the Australian show 'Summer Heights High' (only 8 episodes). The same guy wrote and acted as all 3 characters.

If I don't die before I finish watching Lost (fingers crossed that doesn't happen) I'll watch one of those movies.

I don't LOVE Bang Bang's tv show. I just think it's okay. It's refreshing and a bit different at least.

I like the interstitial stuff and skits much more than the interview segments.

Good. I prefer Shaun, Macho prefers Hot Fuzz. Macho is wrong.


BTW I gave up on Lost after season 3.

I just watched this one with a friend like a week ago. Good episode.

I gave up on it after the first episode. I've continued watching it because I'm trying to figure out what the appeal is. I can usually see why people would like something even though I personally don't, but I don't get this one. It's boring, the acting is bad, the dialogue is painful, the storylines are uninteresting, the characters are bland, there's only one hot bitch, it's predictable when it isn't being completely absurd and when it's absurd no explanations are given. This is just a bad show. I just want all these characters to die except the guy with the kid. Gilligan's Island was so much better than this.

I would suicide myself if I was stuck on an Island with these fucks. I don't even hate anyone in particular, it's just a collective distaste. I don't hate the unborn baby, I guess but that fucker will probably be born soon.

Actually I think I stopped after season 2. The writers just didn't know where they were going and kept everything so damn cryptic that they couldn't even end the show properly.
