more reasons to love the a.v. club

sometimes i think the a.v. club just has some sort of device that sees straight into my soul. and then it uses said device to carefully select these findings and loves them and shares that love with me so i can fall in love with a movie/tv show/music all over again.

the latest in this soul searching connection between a.v. club and myself are their reviews of Spaced. Daisy Steiner just might be the fictional love of my life. for real, i ADORE Daisy Steiner (and, by association, Jessica Stevenson/Hynes)

Spaced, according to wikipedia: Tim Bisley (Pegg) and Daisy Steiner (Hynes) are two London twenty-somethings who meet by chance in a cafĂ© while both are flat-hunting. Despite barely knowing each other, they conspire to pose as a young professional couple in order to meet the requisites of an advertisement for a relatively cheap flat in the distinctive building at 23 Meteor Street, Tufnell Park, which is owned by and also houses the landlady, Marsha Klein (Julia Deakin). Also in the building is Brian Topp (Mark Heap), an eccentric conceptual artist who lives and works on his various pieces in the ground floor flat. Frequent visitors are Tim's best friend, Mike Watt (Nick Frost), who ends up becoming a lodger after Marsha's daughter Amber Weary "flies the nest", and Daisy's best friend, Twist Morgan (Katy Carmichael).
The series largely concerns the colourful and surrealistic adventures of Tim and Daisy as they navigate through life, decide on what they want to do with their lives, come to terms with affairs of the heart, and try to figure out new and largely unproductive ways of killing time. Tim and Daisy repeatedly stress that they are not a couple to everyone but Marsha, but despite (or because of) this, romantic tension develops between them, particularly during the second series.


okay but really if you haven't watched it. do it now. right here.



Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
