So what do we make of this one? Before watching it again, I thought I'd be giving this a good rating, but now I realise Art has so many great lines and the characters spark off each other so well I'm going to have to give this my first excellent.

I had to vote average. I think Art is my least favourite spaced episode. Watching all the other episodes, they are just so original and the dialogue flows and each scene just moves seamlessly to the next, but Art seems to be all filler and could be an episode of any other programme. While it's still good, i think it tries too hard yet here just aren't enough funny moments.

Plus Vulva scares me a bit.

I've given it an average.

I don't know why but I've always felt uncomfortable when Iíve watched this episode.

I like the zombie bits when Tim is smacked out of his head but I'm not a great fan of Vulva or Hoover (perhaps I just don't understand the performance art references) and I don't like the "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" ending either.

Daisy's job interview at Flaps though is classic!

It's probably to do with my realtionship with modern/preformance art that I like this one so much. Modern feminism too, of course.

abstract expressionism for me - this is a step above ordinary sitcom. the bizarre otherness of it makes it absolutely brilliant, from the job interview, shouting out 'big fat cocks' to an elderly asian gent, to creating a character called hoover who has a hoover tied to him. walliams is fantastic too.

and it took me about ten watches until i realised 'rabbit rabbit rabbit' was a reference to "trapped! in the headlights of the twentyfirst century!" earlier in the episode. i'd always just laughed at it and never heard the "thanks for coming. its been very useful!" line. the ending ties the episode perfectly and also sets up future ones for daisy's character.

this is the one for me where it really steps up a level.

I voted excellent for this. It's one of my favourites. It was this episode that I remembered above all others, bar 2.2, until I got into Spaced proper at the start of this year. Pure fantasy but crushing reality as well. I've had an interview like Daisy's and felt Tim's dazed mindings from lack of sleep (but not cheap speed).

Brilliant.

...alone merits an "excellent". But there's lots more, as well.

Average, the botched job interview is a bit too much of a classic sitcom cliche for my tastes and as a whole I think this episode is too ambitious and high concept.

I voted good for this, it's kind of a mixed bag for me. On the one hand the dialogue between Brian/Tim and Brian/Vulva is truly excellent and Vulva must surely be David Walliams' finest hour. But I also find the job interview stuff a bit sitcom by numbers and Hoover irritates me to death, i've never liked Paul Kaye at all really.

I'll heap further praise on this episode, I really do love it - from the integration of the Resident Evil music into the opening title swoosh onwards, it's all great. Some wonderful comedic interplay is seen in this episode.

Excellent! This is one of my most loved episodes. The zombies, the artists, the dreadlock trick, twiglets, patrick cox's shoes. And let's not forget, this is the episode responsible for SOTD!

You know it to be the truth!

I love this episode but I've only voted good because there are a few things that annoy me. Hoover, as other people have said, because he's just not funny and I just don't find Daisy thinking he's a genius funny either. I dislike Daisy's rabbit thing at the end a little. The main thing for me (and I know how stupid this is) is the dreadlock joke. It's funny when Tim's doing it but they should have left it there. We then see the pair both trying to pull their heads away from each other and it just annoys me as it's so unrealistic. It just seems a bit rubbish to me. Spaced is above that.
