I can see the set up purely being based around two strangers sharing an apartment and the hilarious antics that ensue around that. I can see all of the movie references being omitted and them just sticking with the most basic of premises.

Great minds think alike Jimmy.
I posted this on MySpace a little while ago...

Here's my prediction: They will make a show about two singles who pretend to be a couple in order to get a flat. The similarities with the original will end there. There will be lots of hi-jinks and shenanigans and hillarity will ensue (not much).

It'll probably be a lame Three's Company/ W&G, just in reverse. Afterall, the dude adapting it for the US worked on W&G.

I just can't see anyone else in those roles. They were born of Simon & Jess. They ARE Tim and Daisy!!!!! Ugh!!

Aren't they more likely to go with unknowns in the central roles?

I really want to see this.

Tim & Daisy will remain pretty much the same career wise...names will probably change to Cherry & Chuck or something. Mike will become a gung-ho Army reservist, Brian will be pretentious and European, Marsha will not drink (alcohol in a sit-com!!) but will become a bit "ditsy". Twist will become a Puerto Rican drag queen.

It won't be called Spaced. Instead something like Room For Two or Cherry & Chuck or Strange Relationship or Room For Rent.

The theme will be an upbeat pop number that will repeat the show's title over again.

It won't go beyond the pilot.

Or like the Office remake, it'll be quite good and effectively Americanised, leading to a very different but worthwhile series in its own right.

I can't quite believe it, but I am fascinated to see the outcome.

I almost hope it's brilliant, but this remains the main thread for discussing it, alarmist title and all. Tee hee.

Ah, but it's a Fox show, they will only cancel it if it is good!

Part of me would like to see a successful transfer like The Office.

But a morbid part of me also wants to see a disastrous transfer like Fawlty Towers.

It's a win/win situation.

I'm quite excited!
