COUGAR TOWN Gives a 21 Finger-Gun Salute to SPACED

     November 4, 2010


If you’ve seen and fallen in love with Shaun of the Dead and/or Hot Fuzz, chances are you wondered to yourself, “Where can I get more of this brilliance?” and found your way to the British TV series Spaced which was created by Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes.  Edgar Wright directed all fourteen episodes of the series, including the amazing season two episode, “Gone”.  In the episode, the characters engage in massive gunfights except instead of using guns, they’re using their fingers.

Last night’s episode of ABC’s Cougar Town decided to pay homage to Spaced‘s comic genius by having their own finger-gun-showdown.  A close friend has been telling me that I really need to get into Cougar Town and I’m starting to understand why.  Hit the jump to check out the clip from Cougar Town and the clip from Spaced.  I won’t spoil how Cougar Town specifically gives a shout-out to Spaced. And if you’ve never seen Spaced, all of the episodes are on Hulu.  You have your assignment for the weekend.
