About SPACED & Episode Guides

Spaced Aired From September 24, 1999 - April, 2001 On Channel 4

About the Show:
Spaced: the anti-Friends, in that it examines the lives of common 20 somethings, but in a way that is more down to earth and realistic. Here we have Daisy and Tim; two 'young' adults with big dreams just trying to get by in this crazy world. They are thrown together in a common pursuit of tenancy, which they find by posing as a couple. The house has a landlady and an oddball artist living there. The series explores the ins and outs of London living.

The show is also marked with it's 'coolness' as director Edgar Wright employs big screen direction to the small screen, and a plethora of latest music. To make this appealing to most people, there are almost non-stop pop-cultural references that will keep you laughing and engaged.
