The best way I can describe it is that it tweaks a lot of the pop culture stuff I also riff on and brilliantly describes that time after college, but before the mortgage and kids. That time when I remember playing a lot of games, throwing a lot of random parties and just doing whatever I liked with the money we had.
It also helps that the music is awesome. I can't stop playing Mint Royale's From Rusholme with Love:
Or Lemon Jelly's The Staunton Lick:
But the best thing ever (WHICH I HAVE YET TO GET PROPERLY) is the A-Team dance remix:
I find it interesting that Simon Pegg has said definitely that there will never be another season of Spaced (it only ran for two seasons and 14 episodes total). I can't find the interview, but I recall him saying something on Twitter along the lines of "who would want to see 40-year-old Tim and Daisy doing the same thing over and over again?"
So like everyone else, I'm slowly moving on. A friend of mine has introduced me to a show called Outnumbered. And I think that this one may sum up the joys of life with kids and a mortgage:
I can picture myself having this conversation with my child in about a year or so.
But no matter what, I'm going to have a fond spot in my heart for Spaced. And Jaffa Cakes.
