Me? A man-crush on Simon Pegg?

I disagree! I just happen to really enjoy that dudes work.

Think about it.

Shaun of the Dead? You laughed your ass off. That is, without a doubt, one of my top 5 movies of all time. Hell, I was Shaun for halloween.

Hot Fuzz? EVERYTHING that a good mocking movie should be. And he kicks an old lady in the throat.

Run, Fat Boy, Run. Despite David Shwimmer directing it, funny ass flick.

HOWEVER, there was life before zombie flicks for Simon Pegg. He was in a show called “Spaced”. I ran into the show when I was in Scotland for spring break one year.

Basically, simon’s character needs a place to stay, and he winds up pretending he’s in a relationship with a girl named Daisy, to move into a nice place that requires a “working couple”. no singles, fooker.

Anywho, the fiance bought me the box set of said tv show for muh birfday, but it’s a region 2 disc. the US is region 1. luckily, i’m enough on an anglo-phile that i would own a multi-region dvd player.

HOWEVER, the boxset is being released for region 1, ANNNNNNNNNNNND they’re playing it on BBC America.

seriously, funny as balls. the paintball episode and free form art episode are CLASSIC. you cant call yourself a simon pegg fan without owning that show.

    Simon Pegg ROCKS! Seriously seriously ROCKS! Spaced is awesome.

    Not sure if you know the Band of Brothers series, but he has a teeny tiny part in that (not a comedic one, obviously).

    You lucky sod getting the box set. Jealous.
