Somehow I had managed to totally miss out on G&S when it was on TV. I had heard that it was good but never actually caught a single episode.

So I got this DVD - and I was instantly hooked and ended up watching all 6 episodes back to back in a single sitting. It is stunning - well written, great characters, great actors (Rob Brydon is a genius) and life-affirming charming.

I haven't been so bowled over by a British comedy so since Phoenix Nights or Spaced.

I'm now off to get the DVD of the second series.

A true modern day romance.Top marks to the 4 lead charactors,especially Ruth Jones as Ness'.[It took me ages to work out where I had seen Ruth Jones before then I realised she was Linda in Nighty Night]
Alison Steadman is the true gem in this show though, '3 steaks Pam' how that cracked me up.
Then here pushing poor put upon husband Mick to Tescos to get Linda McCartney bits in case anybody was a vegge.That is something my own mother has done in the past so I near had a heart attck through laughing that much.
I have a habit of always looking at the supporting cast rather than the main stars so Uncle Bryn,again was another marvel in this.
When he listed off all of Staceys ex-fiancees,and pronounced the name Ahmed in a true welsh fashion,again,comedy gold.'He even sends me a Christmas card and they[muslims]don't even celebrate it!'
As soon as Season 2 comes out I will be buying it.

The whole basis of Gavin and Stacey is very simple but the script, characters and comic timing make it a classic. Like all good comedies every character has a part to play and each is so realistic that you feel that you know them from somewhere. Above all Rob Brydon is pure comic genius.

This is possibly the best new comedy series in years. One of very few TV shows to have made me literally double up with laughter.

The superb writing and acting means we have many great characters and sub-plots to enjoy and arguably we have one of the greatest comedy creations of all time, namely 'Nessa' as portrayed by the wonderful Ruth Jones (who also plays the lovely 'Mags' in Saxondale and co-writes this show with James Corden).

Nessa is a 'hard' Barry girl who has seen it all before and has the t-shirt. She gets many 'killer' lines, all delivered in that deadpan Barry accent. The story about being wined and dined by Dodi Al Fayed is nothing short of hysterical. I laughed so much I thought I'd done some damage. Yet, behind the hard drinking, hard bonking tough exterior we are allowed glimpses of the vulnerable girl within, particularly in the last episode of the series which leaves us wanting more.

Ms Jones is beginning to appear more and more on our sets and is one of the best actresses we have! Having previously appeared in Fat Friends, Little Britain, Nighty Night and Saxondale, 'Nessa' has to be her best character to date.

She plays opposite James Corden as Smithy, the wonderful 'best mate' to Gavin. His 'relationship' with Nessa provides an ongoing source of laughter throughout the series and their playing of the hotel room scene (and it's aftermath) is masterly.

Among the other characters, Rob Brydon gives a 'stand out' performance as Stacey's uncle. His reading of the message from her deceased father en route to her wedding moved me from laughter to tears and back again. "Do you want me to read it in his voice? With the lisp and everything"? Priceless.

We're seeing great things from BBC3 - it seems a testing ground for Aunty Beeb - if it works - then Prime Time, if not, it will never been screened to a wider audience again!!

Thankfully, Gavin and Stacey works. On many levels.

In a simular style to Australia's brilliant 'Kath and Kim' series, Gavin and Stacey is a refreshing look at a down to earth romance.

Chav maybe, funny definately - this series manages to capture both genuine laughs and care and concern about the lovable characters portrayed by this brilliant cast.

Enough with the review...just enjoy this wonderful DVD!!!

This must be the greatest comedy show I've ever watched. I never get tired of it and the great lines they come out with. Uncle Bryn and Nessa are just awesome.

Excellent series of shows. It is great to see a genuinely new program with fresh and very inventive ideas. The situations, characters, dialogue and acting is first rate and very, very funny. I cannot recommend this enough. Enjoy !!!

A really sweet, light comedy. The acting is very good and there is lots of laughs to be had. Rob Brydon is on top form as always as is Matthew Horne and Joanna Page. However the two actors who shine the most are Ruth Jones as the gothic, sarcastic 'Nessa' and James Corden as the bloke's bloke 'Smithy'.

A very good show that will make you smile.
