5.0 out of 5 stars worth updating from DVD
Before ordering this item, I could not find out anywhere whether these shows were shot in HD or upscaled for this re-release.

I had previously bought this complete collection on DVD, but I took the gamble and bought this BluRay version. I still suspect it's upscaled, not originally high-definition, but in any case, the picture quality on the BluRay is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Often grainy picture
Had some issues with the picture quality, most scenes were fine - great HD quality but I often found that the more dimly-lit shots appear very, very grainy. So much so that it's difficult to ignore.

Other than that it's great quality with plenty of extras - commentaries, outtakes and mini-documentaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth updating from DVD, 28 May 2011
This review is from: Gavin And Stacey - Series 1-3 And 2008 Christmas Special [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Before ordering this item, I could not find out anywhere whether these shows were shot in HD or upscaled for this re-release.

I had previously bought this complete collection on DVD, but I took the gamble and bought this BluRay version. I still suspect it's upscaled, not originally high-definition, but in any case, the picture quality on the BluRay is significantly better than the original DVD release, with crisper detail and none of the digital noise (pixelated fuzziness) everywhere evident on the DVDs.

If you are a fan of the show and want a copy to enjoy for years to come, then I would recommend this BluRay version even if it means double-dipping.

5.0 out of 5 stars REGION FREE REALLY WORKS!, 9 July 2013

This review is from: Gavin And Stacey - Series 1-3 And 2008 Christmas Special [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I'd already watched them because they're free on Amazon Prime; but i wanted to check to see how region free blu-ray works. There is so much video content BBC, ITV, Sky, etc. that is unavailable in the US because it's on DVD in the wrong format. With region free blu-ray I'll be able to watch a lot more.

Gotta love Gavin & Stacey!

5.0 out of 5 stars WELSHNESS AT ITS COMEDY BEST, 6 Mar 2012

This review is from: Gavin And Stacey - Series 1-3 And 2008 Christmas Special [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Gavin and Stacey is a classic innovative series. There is beautiful characterisation, great locations (Barry is now firmly on the map). It is so good you need every episode and the Christmas special because each episode pops along filled with so much flavour that the feast is over before you can say "What`s occuring". The Blu Ray version is quite superb and of course in greater detail than you would have seen even on an HD broadcast.

Missed the series first time round and although it is now showing on other channels they are not shown in order so it is great to watch from the beginning without ads

This review is from: Gavin And Stacey - Series 1-3 And 2008 Christmas Special [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I usually like more in your face comedy like Bottom or Alan Partridge but for some reason I like these. Its so twee and gentle but very effective. No annoying laughter track, its a take it or leave it approach and works very well. You get quite involved with the characters and their nuances and you definately see a little of someone you know in the characters! Excellent watching for rainy days or quiet nights in.
