I'm trying to find new funny TV so I picked up "Spaced" which came highly recommended. Yikes. Just because it's British doesn't mean it's smart or clever. It's sort of on the level of "How I met your mother" or "My name is Earl". Every "funny" moment has me sarcastically thinking "oh wow, what a clever funny twist, I NEVER saw that coming, oh how novel, his idea for how to be more productive is to smoke some pot, ha". I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since I find all of Simon Pegg's stuff to be patently unfunny; it's very hammy broad comedy, like the unfunny Adam Sandler or Ben Stiller.
