A bit about the editors who will be discussing the series with you:
Carol Hartsell, Comedy Editor
Next to Clint Eastwood and the horse in Winter’s Tale — who could totally kick War Horse’s ass by the way — Daisy is my personal hero. She’s completely, awkwardly, shamelessly genuine, and she puts all of today’s “adorkable” leading ladies to shame. I originally watched “Spaced” after a friend told me, “It’s by the ‘Shaun of the Dead’ guys!” but I walked away completely in love with the comedic genius of Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson).
Katla McGlynn, Deputy Comedy Editor
I first saw âSpacedâ when I got the DVD box set for Christmas in 2009, and since then it has become one of my all-time favorite shows. The abundant film references, the oh-so-90s clothes and music, and Daisy and Timâs perfect will-they-or-wonât-they non-relationship are what interest me the most. Let’s do this!
Ross Luippold, Associate Comedy Editor
I have never seen “Spaced” before, but I did have an unhealthy obsession with “Star Wars” as a kid — I’ll make bantha poodoo out of you at “Star Wars” Trivial Pursuit — and I love everything else Edgar Wright has ever done. Also, I love England! And friendship! And liveblogging! Let’s do this.
Christine Friar, Associate Comedy Editor
I’m watching the show for the first time, so if you’re confused about something or dying to talk about that quote from your favorite character, find me! I’m probably dying too! And let’s keep a running list of funny British ways of saying things while we’re at it. Here, I’ll start: lorry.
Seena Vali, Comedy Intern
I tend to gravitate to comedy that deals with social awkwardness since that’s an almost constant aspect of my life. I’m also a big fan of science fiction, comic books and other nerdy stuff like that, so if you want to discuss possible references to “House Of M” #7 that you see, I’m your man.
