Downsy
Dearest Spaced Folk,

Well it's nearly 2005, almost 3 years since the second series of Spaced aired and yet here we are. It is nothing less than a thrill to know that this community still thrives with chat and debate and daftness. My thanks go out to Downsy for helping to get the forum back up and running after a brief hiatus. Again, our apologies for that, sorry it didn't get back on its feet sooner.

My thanks must also go out again to those selfless souls who lent their groans and stumbles to Shaun of the Dead. You presence in the film though sometimes arduous I know, was utterly invaluable to us and gave the movie a much needed population of the all those important ghouls. Thank you so much.

Next year, we hope to bring you more exclusive 'you set the questions' interviews with Spaced cast members, including NIck Frost, Julia Deakin, Katy Carmichael, Peter Serafinowicz and Michael Smiley, we're also hoping to publish a book of the Spaced scripts complete with an unflimed episode and all new pictures and games and puzzles and shit and that. Although a third series is hard to promise, Jessica and myself discuss it a lot and even wrote the first scene of episode one on the day we shot the location tour for the DVD, so inspired were we by our old haunts. Hopefully, one day we'll do something.

In the meantime, from myself, Jessica, Edgar and the gang, have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Peace and love as ever,

Simon

It's so good to know all the fans are appreciated smile.gif It's just one of the many reasons that make Spaced so special. I feel all warm inside after that lovely mesasage. If Simon ever reads these posts i'm sure he'll be glad to know we wish him a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too.

In a message he wrote on that Joblo forum thingy, he said that he tends not to look at forums and such. He gave two reasons, one because he thinks that people should feel free to post whatever they want without thinking that he is 'looking over their shoulders' all the time. And the second reason he gave was that even though people like Peter Jackson, Sam Raimi and George Romero have all said that SotD was great, it's still really upsetting to read that John Citizen from Scrotum, Nebraska thinks it's a piece of shit.

Something along those lines anyway.

Cheers

But when it's a message board dedicated to your own show, what's the harm in that?
Astrid
What a lovely Christmas Message.
Well I hoope Simon and Edgar get a comedy award for Christmas!
Have a fantastic New Year ( and the same goes to everyone on the forum ).

What a star, and what a great Christmas present!

I'd love to get my hands on the scripts. I wonder if the unfilmed episode is the version of 2.5 they talk about writing then scrapping in the third-disc documentary.

There up for an award tonight at the comedy awards if my memory serves me right. It's on ITV 1, I think around 8 or 9pm?? Have to check to be sure though.


Anyway, thank you Simon for you lovely message. Hope you and the rest of the guys have a great Christmas and new years.

Oh and I hope Nick hasn't be turned [into] by all the chavs in Northampton. tongue.gif
Astrid
Yes the Comedy awards are on tonight and they are up for best Film. Thats what I meant.
Simon was on the preview last night. Only for about 5 mins for a quick interview about the awards.
Also Mark Heap was on due to Green Wing and was hilarious as usual!
Philz

Merry Christmas Simon and all the Spaced crew, and Merry Christmas to everyone on the Spaced Out Forum! 2004 was a cracking year in terms of Spacedom, so here's hoping 2005 will be just as fruitful!

Cool message - it's great to hear Spaced is still close to their hearts. The book thing sounds great - and how exciting is episode 3.1? Merry Christmas Simon and all!
Jon 79
Reading Simons message, & indeed all the above christmas wishes from everyone here has made me really happy. It's christmas, & I feel as excited as a child again.

...or maybe it's all down to the amount of wine I've been drinking. huh.gif wacko.gif
holly
wow its really nice to read that message, i love being a fan of something whose creators actually care and are nice its a lovely feeling.

happy festive season to everyone on here, i think its just incited a big group hug
wherearethezombies
Sounds like they need to shoot a few more location tours for dvd's. It really does make a difference little messages like that. if only to obsessed fans who need something to cling on to. merry christmas everyone.
ally
aww what a nice msg from the man himself!

merry xmas to all the spaced cast and crew and all on the spaced out forum! wouldn't it be nice if we could all get together for one big piss up at new years?!!

MERRY XMAS!!!!
AusChick
I really think that part of the appeal of Spaced/Shaun (aside from the fantastic writing, acting, directing, and all that) is that the creators involved seem really nice and down to earth. They actually seem to care about the fans and to understand the fan perspective.

I think that's really important.

Plus, look what a high calibre of fans they attract!!
I can feel the love in this thread. Everyone is so warm and friendly here!
And I hope all of you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year too!

Hugs all round!

Cheers

Yes Simon is lovely, very sweet of him to send us a message. I think he must be amused to see the things we write about not to mention the ego boost if he saw all the "phwooor" posts about him !

Hope you all have/ Had a lovely Christmas and a good new year, very excited about the future projects! (ill be watching the quiz on monday)

Your message made my day, beating my nan's dog humping my leg and my mum desparatly trying to give clues in a music by singing very drunk tone deaf.

Will read again tomorrow to make my birthday cool

Love you loads,

i absolutely agree. i met simon on christmas eve at a london radio station's breakfast show, and he was funny, generous with his time and a real sweetie. anthony daniels (of c-3po fame) was also there and we were both standing there going all geeky over him! 'twas a most strange morning for me, but so fantastic. he was great and i'm now an even bigger fan of his than before.

p.s. in the flesh he is even more gorgeous *swoon*
