I am translating the Spaced into Chinese.
I am quite confused about the name. it's really hard to translate it into Chinese. I hope someone can explain the meaning of the name.
Is this name related to the movies like Star War?

this is what I found:
spaced-out
1 or spaced \'spāst\ : dazed or stupefied by or as if by a narcotic substance : HIGH
2 : of very strange character : WEIRD <a spaced-out fantasy>

I think both of these together express the philosophy of Spaced. While the title doesn't refer explicitly to drug-taking, the 'stoner' vibe it evokes is accurate; and 'spaced-out fantasy' definitely describes the weirdness. I think the nod to science-fiction is also deliberate, be it referencing Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001 or any of the other cult films and programmes they play on within the show.
