If all TV was just this and the Nimoy/Quinto car ad, I would be happy. Maybe not for the rest of my life, but for at least a week.

Off the top of my head, I would have called them the Fence Jumping trilogy. But the Cornetto thing is pretty nice (and so recognizably an Edgar Wright bit of cleverness).

A pub crawl down the Mumbles Mile, near Swansea, was where and when the wonderchicken monicker was born. Back in the day, the objective was a pint in each of the 20 pubs, but apparently today the pub count is down to 9, which hardly seems like a challenge.

Anyway, hooray for crawls. I haven't been on one for decades.

the final film in Edgar Wright's "Cornetto Trilogy"

I initially read that as "Edgar Winter's 'Cornetto Trilogy,'" and I was both deeply confused and strangely intrigued.

Reading it properly the second time just makes me very, very happy.

Simon Pegg is a treasure. He could reasonably play James Bond or the Doctor, as the mood struck him. He's like a pleasant Jason Stratham.

But, consider, Nick Frost as Dr Who! Thass a change, innit?

I am not sure there is any science fiction show that would not be massively improved by having Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play bumbling goofball lead roles.

It would probably even help Cowboy Bebop and that is the biggest stretch I can think of.

More than any other film (and there are quite a few I'm excited by), I've been waiting for this one. With their casual and chatty twitter feeds, and their goofy commentaries, I feel sort of like I've grown up with these guys since Spaced.

I know their opinions on movies and comics, and what kinds of dinner Frost is making. It's a strangely inclusive relationship they have with their fans that makes it seem like we are part of their gang. That is why I love what they do.

I'm excited about this, because of how deliriously excited they are about it.

Well, the_artificer, Spaced is not doing it for me. There's some funny stuff but it feels poorly paced and there's too much of that we're-English-and-therefore-awkward feeling about it. Maybe later eps are better. (I bailed shortly into the second.)

Stick with Spaced for a bit longer. The second season is especially wonderful & clever.
posted by mochapickle at 5:40 PM on May 15, 2013


(Note: This comment contains Hot Fuzzy spoilers)

Hot Fuzz is the Chekov's Gun of movies. EVERYTHING comes back later, even things that seem like throwaway jokes. For example...
DS Andy Wainwright: You do know there are more guns in the country than there are in the city.
DS Andy Cartwright: Everyone and their mums is packin' round here!
Nicholas Angel: Like who?
DS Andy Wainwright: Farmers.
Nicholas Angel: Who else?
DS Andy Cartwright: Farmers' mums.
That's funny enough on its own. But what happens when they return to the village? They are first attacked by a farmer. And then, just when you think they're safe, who pops up?
