'Spaced' Box Set at HMV for 30 pounds

I bought this over the weekend, and it's already shipped. I have read GREAT reviews of this show in UK DVD magazines, thought I would pick it up. Amazon has them individually for 18.99pounds each. Then I was at HMV.co.uk and they have it for 30 pounds, minus VAT, for BOTH seasons, in an exclusive box set. I thought it was worth mentioning. They also have a nice 'Black Hawk Down' exclusive collector's set with a nice cover and a book, and shipping was the same as DVD shipping. So I just thought I would contribute since it has been a while since I have posted anything.

Fantastic show and awesome discs. Along with (the same channelís) Black Books & Phoenix Nights (also out on DVD), one of the great TV shows of the last 20 years.

Thanks, Jonathan, I haven't heard of Phoenix, but watched "Black Books" last week! It was very funny, only problem being such a short season. I really enjoyed it. I will look for Phoenix next time I order!

An excellent show but watch out for the Northern accents/whimsy!

If you are well-up on UK cultural referents generally, and Northern humour in particular, "Dinner Ladies" is another recommended show although, because of the occasional wordplay, this may work better "at home".

(Shame on me, I have not checked to see its DVD availability!)

I finished watching "Spaced" and I must say, it's one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. I am bored with "Friends" "Will and Grace" and the new "comedies" on TV just aren't funny to me anymore. But "Spaced" made me laugh out loud several times, especially when Daisy keeps getting fired, and the placement woman says she has a habit of saying inappropriate things, and Daisy says, "Bullocks" to her. That's awesome, and not to mention the hand gestures! Anyway, still suggesting everyone pick this up because it was a LOT of fun!
