The Spaced Series 1 DVD official content listing is as follows:
minutes of deleted scenes
(including the famous Gillian Anderson scene)
minutes of outtakes

Exploring the life of all of the characters pre-Tim

parentage, Marsha's marriage, Brian's forray into the music
biz, and Colin's life before he was Colin.
Each biog will feature a top5 list relevant to each character.
this, as well as:
Cast and crew biogs, a commentary by Simon, Jess and
Edgar, with different cast members commenting on different
16:9 Video and Hard-of-Hearing subtitles.
brief review supplied by Iain of SFX
out-takes: Lots of scenes of S, J and the gang pissing themselves
laughing, Julia drawing phallic symbols, one of the worst
pieces of white boy/girl rap you'll ever see, and much hillarity
cut scenes: Brilliant - and with a commentary on them from
Simon and Edgar, which makes the difference too. The story-arcing
is far more apparent - the set-up for the whole Mike Takes
Paris By Tank subplot is in there, for instance, along with
some romantic set-up bits between Twist and Brian - and several
more shots of Brian's arse.
extras - the commentary (for ep 1, anyway) is great, very
funny and knockabout, and gives some interesting insights
(how the League of Gentlemen scuppered a running gag with
the twins in the cupboard, and thus inspired the Scooby Doo
scene, for example). The Character profiles are fantastic
too, with nice top five lists (and a wee cameo by Nick Lee
commentary for all the episodes is fantastic (and you get
to hear Julia Deakin's real voice, which sounds NOTHING like
Marsha!), while the trailer section seems to be missing two
ads - the Space 1999/Join Us one for ep 2, and the ep 7 one.
As a bonus, though, we do get to see the trailer for series
two in there.
fine DVD,crammed full of bits and bobs, and up to the same
standards as the League of Gentlemen's series one disc.
The standard has been set.
