I didn't realise how much I've missed Joss Whedon's stuff until I watched this.  It's great.

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Don't cheat!

Went to see Stardust with a couple of my friends last night and it was fantastic.  I'd recommend it to anyone who was looking for something to go see at the cinema.  Full of laughs, and you can play 'spot to British comedy actor' too, and it had the three of us leaving the cinema with big grins on our faces.  Certainly one I'll be buying once it comes out on DVD.

Simon Pegg on McSpaced (from Peggster.net)
"I feel utterly bemused by the issue of Spaced being transferred anywhere. It is an extremely personal show that grew out of a very specific set of circumstances. There is no way on Earth it could ever be reversioned without becoming something completely different. If you take away all those specifics, what you're left with is a very conventional log line for a fairly mediocre sitcom. "Two strangers decide to pose as a professional couple in order to secure an apartment". I'm sure anyone who appreciates the show would agree that 'set up' is probably the least relevant aspect of the show's appeal. I am really pissed off that we weren't even contacted out of courtesy or respect. Long live Spaced 1.0."

More from Edgar Wright on McSpaced.

The more I read about this the less happy I get.  And believe me I was far from thrilled to start with (I shouted "no!!!!!!!!!" at my monitor).

There is no way that this can be good is there? I love Spaced and I really don't want to see the show screwed up.  I feel that the first article at the end of Edgar's blog sums up why much more eloquently than I could.

Fox has locked its orbit on "Spaced," a U.K. comedy being retooled for American auds.

Net has given a put pilot order to the project, originally created by the "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" team of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright (as well as Jessica Stevenson). "Will & Grace" alum Adam Barr is set to adapt the show for the U.S.
"Spaced" revolves around a young man and woman (played by Pegg and Stevenson in the U.K. version) who pose as a couple in order to rent a cheap apartment. They're soon surrounded by colorful neighbors and eventually begin a flirtation.
The single-camera comedy is particularly known in Britain for its frenzied use of pop culture references -- particularly when it comes to sci-fi, horror, comicbooks and videogames.
Wonderland Sound and Vision is behind the project, as well as Warner Bros. TV (where Wonderland is based) and Granada, which holds format rights. Wonderland TV prexy Peter Johnson first discovered the show while talking to someone at a comicbook store; as a "Shaun of the Dead" fan, he quickly looked to seal the rights.
Wonderland's McG and Granada's Robert Green will exec produce alongside Barr; the extent of Pegg's and Wright's involvement is still unclear. But Johnson likens the effort to NBC's adaptation of Ricky Gervais' and Stephen Merchant's "The Office" for the U.S., with Greg Daniels in charge.
"Spaced" has been nominated for a BAFTA and an Intl. Emmy Award, among other honors. Channel 4 aired seven episodes of season one in 1999 and another seven segs of a second season in 2001.
Barr's other credits include "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Desperate Housewives."

And from Edgar's MySpace.
The above article features this interesting nugget...

"Wonderland's McG and Granada's Robert Green will exec produce alongside Barr; the extent of Pegg's and Wright's involvement is still unclear. But Johnson likens the effort to NBC's adaptation of Ricky Gervais' and Stephen Merchant's "The Office" for the U.S., with Greg Daniels in charge."

The interesting part of that is, no-one has been in touch with me at all. Haven't deigned to get in contact. So my involvement is indeed very unclear.

Would love to know what you all have to say about it.

P.S. I can confirm too, that Simon was never contacted either. I don't really want to get involved at all, but it infuriates me that they would a) never bother to get in touch but still b) splash me and Simon's names all over the trade announcements and infer that we're involved in the same way Ricky & Steve were with The Office.

Also, it's worth stressing that I will not be profiting from this reversion, nor do they have to get permission from me to make it.

On a brighter note, these articles on the subject are hilarious.
