Watching Spaced with Homage-O-Meter made me get this really obscure reference to Desperado in Episode 1.4. I know desperado (but I allways prefer watching El Mariachie) but I wouldn't have get it in a thousand years.

So which reference (in Spaced or any other show/flim) do you think, is really obscure?

Colin getting abducted by "a crocodile or something" as a homage to Scully's dog Queegqueg getting eaten by a crocodile in The X-Files.

I know it's an obvious choice, what with it being mentioned on the commentary, but that's still really, really obscure. Damn funny though.

Bronson's got toupee. Heheh.

Its not so much obscure buts its hard to spot, in the clubbing episode the first shot panning away from Brian in the 80's is a reference to clockwork oranges first shot panning away from Malcom Mcdowell.

It's actually a reference to Shine, or The Piano , isn't it?

Obscurity is all relative, but the ones that I always thought were impressively obscure were the ones in Season 2, Ep. 4, when the names of the artists that Sophie says are all variations on real-life comic book artists' names.

There is a reference to both Murder She Wrote and Shine in the show.


My favourite obscure reference is to the new Thompsons Local advert that appears in the paintball episode.
