Nooooooooooo !!!!!! US "Spaced" Remake
As far as British comedy goes Spaced is one of those shows that is considered a classic by many people, and like The Young Ones you couldn't imagine anybody else playing those characters. Now news has come of an American remake of our beloved Spaced. I'm pleased to read Simon Pegg isn't happy about the way it's being handled, he says "If they don't care about the integrity of the original, why call it Spaced? Why attempt to find some validation by including mine and Edgar's names in the press release as if we were involved? Why not just lift the premise?"
Now there are lots of American comedy's I like, but for me a show like Spaced is typically British and should stay that way, I know of many Americans who already love the show.
