I've been married to DH for 18 years and last night he said that he'd never heard of Spaced. There was something on tv about funniest characters or series and the talked about Spaced. I said something like "That was such genius, we should get the DVD", and he said "What is it? I've never seen it."
Obviously marriages have crumbled under lesser stress, but I am fighting the good fight and ordering both series today soIcanhaveagoodlaugh to educate DH.
I blame myself, how could I be so out of touch with the state of my marriage that I didn't know about this.
I think you are all being a bit tough on him. He only said that he hadn't heard of it, which may be fixable. If he had said that he didn't like it then obviously he would be out on his arse straightaway.
I thought we had watched it together Laurie, but he says not. I remember discussing it at the time. Now I wonder whether I might have been at it with work colleagues behind DH's back and supressed the memory of it through guilt.
He was away a lot around that time, commuting back and forward between London and Berlin so I may have been starved of the opportunity to share TV experiences. Not that that excuses my behaviour in any way. I'm sure it's mostly his fault though, for instance he could have asked me to record it and wait for him to come home at the weekends.
It's OK for people in the wrong age group not to have heard of it, but I'd be suspicious of someone of my generation who hadn't. Friends who had the poor judgement to be out of the country at the time or born too late have long since been bought copies.
