Very rarely does a show come along that is at such high quality as the excellent `Gavin & Stacey'. I never watched it when it was on TV but after hearing all of the word-of-mouth hype surrounding it and seeing that it had won some awards, I thought it was time to give it a go and so I purchased the series 1 and 2 boxset and I must say it is probably the best £18 I've spent on a DVD in a long time!
The story is fairly straight-forward - Gavin lives in Essex and Stacey lives in Barry, they talk every day at work on the phone and then after months of getting to know one another they decide to meet. Gavin takes along his best friend Smithy while Stacey takes hers, Vanessa. They get on perfectly and so starts the show. Throughout the 2 series all of the brilliant characters evolve and you'll feel like you really know them by the end of it all. I got so addicted to this show that I actually watched all 13 episodes (plus the Christmas Special that my friend had recorded) in just 3 nights and could easily watch it all again already - it is so good!
This show is heart-warming, sad, sweet, and very funny. I can't recommend this highly enough - all I can say is watch it as soon as possible! I just can't wait for series 3 now!
