Spaced On The Difference Between Women And Men

I’ve been making my way through Spaced, that cool show by the Shaun Of The Dead folks that aired in Britain in 1999 and 2001 and just came out on DVD. I didn’t want to watch any of the show online so as to purify the chronological entire-series DVD-watching experience, but this scene stands alone as an example of the show’s brilliance: what starts out as a conversation about the differences between men and women turns into the two funniest fight scenes I’ve ever seen (though I think non-funny fight scenes are stupid, probably because I’m a chick.) You don’t have to have seen the show to get the truths revealed here (be sure to watch to the end):

Last night I watched that scene four times. Someone in Hollywood should totally make an American version of this show, just kidding.
