Gavin and Stacey

Gavin_&_Stacey_DVD_BBC Lately I've been watching the Gavin & Stacey series on BBC America.  From IMDB:

Gavin and Stacey have been continuing their romance on-line and by telephone for the last six months. Now they want to be together but will their friends and family let them?

Over lunch today I watched episode 7 of the second series (or season, as we yanks would say).  I’m sure I was feeling the build up and culmination of watching the first two series over the last few months (and not just the quality of this episode)…plus it is well-documented that I love me some British TV…but I thought it was fantastic.  Smithy, in particular, is a wonderful character.

Supposedly NBC is going to make an American version (link), but they said the same about Saxondale and I never saw it realized.  Better to watch the original anyway.  Adjust your Netflix cues accordingly (though it looks like you’ll have to wait for season 2).
