Times, they are a changing...

We started The Stand Wednesday. Our plan had been to follow that with American Gothic, and after considering a Spaced marathon for our August movie party, we agreed that would better fit as a Wednesday night show. So American Gothic got the bump (again), and Spaced is slotted for 4 weeks starting on the 27th.

If you're familiar with Spaced, I don't have to explain why we've selected it. If you haven't seen or heard of it - you're in for a treat. Spaced was a BBC show that was on for two 7 episode seasons, directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg.

The show clearly demonstrates the brilliance of the men who would go on to create Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. It's full of pop-culture references and homages, and speaks to a generation like no show before it. You'll laugh, you'll cry, it will become a part of you.
