If you've already seen The Dark Knight a few times (I saw it again in IMAX this morning and it was borderline dangerous), here are a few things to be excited about this week.
Spaced: The Complete DVD Set
Coming from the guys who made "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" (both classics, by the way), Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, is "Spaced", their highly influential and hilarious show that appeared on the BBC from 1999-2001.
From Rotten Tomatoes:
Spaced: The Complete Series will be released Tuesday in a three-disc collection that includes all 14 episodes, a feature-length documentary, commentaries from the original UK release, deleted scenes, outtakes and more. Which graphic artist is Tim Bisley named for? Find out by turning on the optional Homage-O-Meter to keep track of the fast and furious references in both seasons. Which episode of The X-Files inspired a storyline involving Daisy's missing dog? Find out in the all-new commentary track featuring Wright, Pegg, Hynes, and a revolving cast of their best celebrity friends and fans (Kevin Smith, Diablo Cody, Patton Oswalt, Matt Stone, Quentin Tarantino, and Bill Hader).
"Watching Spaced is kinda like watching a Kevin Smith film if Kevin Smith had any real talent."- Kevin Smith
"I laughed hard and I hate comedy."- Judd Apatow
"The wonderfully funny, outrageous and unique British television comedy series that manages to be both insane and sweet at the same time! A very influential show from the guys who gave us Shaun of the Dead."- John Landis
"The one, the only...Spaced. Accept no substitute" - Quentin Tarantino
Daft Punk "Electroma" DVD
This is Daft Punk's "art-house film" about two robots who travel the Earth, learning how to be human after all. There is no Daft Punk music (strangely), no dialogue, no action. But as a huge Daft Punk fan (and stoking the flame of my Wall-E, robots-trying-to-become-human obsession, I'm down.
