This... is the good shit. Woo Mama!

Gone is my favourite episode of the second series, and my second-favourite overall, after Epiphanies. While other episodes have as many great scenes (though few can compare in quality to the gunfights), this episode is very cleverly constructed and hangs together as a seamless whole. For me this is Spaced at its best, and deserves an Excellent if anything does.

Any dissenters?

Only the second of the gun fights REALLY made me laugh, though I do feel that the full length "Daisy does Elvis" is one of the most barnstorming outtakes -the series 2 Pump Up the Jam if you will.

Excellent

Tequila, Kia Ora, Daisy's Stew, The Return Of Duane, the Gun Fight, Elvis....

My favorite episode of Spaced ever.

Inspired about a year of 'gunfighting' at my shitty job, and made me look forward to working all weekend.

Fantastic - as Chapman says, one of the most well constructed episodes of the series. Everything that happens is there for a reason and we really see Daisy and Tim's relationship develop.

Not one of my favourites, a bit 'gimmicky' perhaps? It seems to rely more on the traditional situational comedy structures and I prefer Spaced at its more abstract.

It's still good though, some choice dialogue and a cracking opening homage to Butch and Sundance.

I'd vote fandabbydozy but I can't so I'll have to settle for Excellent.

I think it's excellent, definitely, but when you look back on it, its surprising how little there is of Brian and Mike - its very much a Daisy and Tim episode. Not that the episode suffers from it in the slightest. And with the Duane link, John Woo shoot outs and Colin subplots, it serves as a perfect two-parter with 1.4 'Battles' if you so wish. And love the alternate nights out photo/comic sequence.

This is one of my favourite episodes in both series'. It's pure genius.... from the gun fights to Jessica's Jamie Oliver impression, it's a huge chunk of fried gold!!!!

I especially love Simon's knife noise and the look on Mikes face when Tim asks him if he looks sexy!!! This episode is one of the best by far

xxxxxxx

p.s. I also love the lots and lots of Peter Serafinowicz wub.gif

[EDIT] ALMOST FORGOT.... the line "I'm a catering student" cracks me up every time.... love it

and when Mike opens Brian's door and goes "Been naughty".... I'll stop before I remember anything else

I think that the use of an identifiable 'real-life' situation (a night out on the town) actually works really well, especially as this series has plenmty of odd situations (The Matrix agents, Robot Club etc) leading up to this episode. The Spaced spin that they put on the events works really well. Gotta love the dialogue when they first arrive in the pub stoned as well. happy.gif

Excellent, I can't really add too much to the debate that hasn't already been added. Though I would like to say that at the London Meet I went into the toilets and really couldn't stop thinking 'Kiora'. That was so strange being there.

Anyway, a fantastic episode, structurally, dialogue-wise and in overall plot. Probably the most quotable and imitatable of all the Spaced spisodes.
