Spaced, series one

September 10th, 2010 (01:24 am)

I drifted away from television in the 1990s to some extent, and have never really renewed the acquaintance I had with it while growing up, so have missed lots which was worth my while, including Spaced (though I did watch one episode of series two). I finally got round to watching the first series this evening. I was the only one of the gathering to be of the same age cohort of the main characters, and I was in a flatshare in London with what might have been perceived as unconventional characteristics when the series went out. While Simon Pegg's character Tim worked in a comics shop, I worked for a comics publisher (for some of the time) and found then my efforts at speculative writing were often as sporadic as those of Jessica Stevenson's Daisy. Age is a theme of the series, and I'll expand on that in the morning...

I can see where the identification comes from, as though the parallels aren't exact the opportunities to go down similar roads have presented themselves to me over the years. More in part two shortly.
