This could turn out to be a pretty good show provided they actually develop engaging storylines and don't rely too heavily on film references like Spaced did!


!! You kinda missed the point of the show didn't yer.....

Good idea though - remove the references, change the character names & name of the show.... wouldn't be a problem then

McG... for fuck sake, go remake that Pamela Anderson shit-com shite that had Christopher Lloyd in it & leave our TV alone...

I hate to say it but i can't see how it would work. Spaced is such a British sitcom, with subtle humour and low budget film parodies. Americans like it smooth, polished and well, with obvious humour. Its just wrong.

I think this just about warrants ending the British/American "special relationship" right here. First Iraq, now this!

Ok, all blasphemy aside, this is still a major mistake. It completely confirms America's inability to deal with anything new or original. And anything that is in the category of programming is thrown about the time slots and played on the completely wrong channels (Arrested Development, Knights of Prosperity etc.). Hopefully Gramsci will attack McG while he is walking home one night and it will put a stop to this nonsense.

I don't know, McG was involved in new series Chuck, and that really gets geeks.

Also, this would have to be American based geekery, not British, which is quite different really, so I can understand why they'd buy the concept but have to rework it for an American market.

Also, I don't get why you care, its not like it effects the original Spaced (apart from probably making Wright and Pegg a load of cash).

"Derek, American Spaced is a big pile of shit!"
"Get out!"
"H'rrraaaaayy!"

Ok then, say this does actually happen... casting choices please?
(This woulda worked better if the photos were showing.)

Tim Bisley... T.J.Thyne?

Daisy Steiner... Thora Birch ?

Mike... Jonah Hall ?

Marsha... Meryl Streep?
(Remembering, of course, it took a bit of work turning Julia Deakin into Marsha!)

I am fairly stumped as to who to get for Tyres or Bilbo though!!?!!?!?

Anyway, enough of this foolishness, SPACED shouldnt be remade, period!

I bet my right nad they get Adam Brody playing Simon Peggs character. This is a dark day. Why do people keep employing McG? Who has the rights to Spaced? Can't anyone do anything?

Stupid Americans. What's wrong with just watching the friggin british version? Are they REALLY that stupid that they wouldn't get any of the jokes. It's gonna end up like a posh version version of spaced with them living in a penthouse or something cos the americans can't do grimy tv.

Appalling idea, especially without Pegg or Wright involved - and they apparently haven't even been asked. How rude!
The Yanks do have form when it comes to cocking up cracking UK shows. See: Cracker, Coupling (had a certain naive charm), and I personally have my doubts about the upcoming Life on Mars remake.
As for casting...you've got to think a Bilbo natural would be Kevin Smith. He has at least recently shown a penchant for TV with Battlestar Galactica, Reaper and Heroes. Plus, geeky - comic book knowledge, overweight and beard. He's a natural.

This is quite possibly the most horrifying piece of news empire has ever reported. I hereby vow, nay promise that if it ever happens I shall travel across the atlantic, personally hunt MCG down and beat him to death with his own shoes, the man makes Uwe Boll look like Kubrick.......

theres always the chance that it will be another scrubs (i like scrubs) with lots of wacky farout references to american pop culture (here's hoping they'll do a lost rip take as i hate the show and it will be funny to watch it seriouseness get taken away)
