Trust me, it's cute.

Gavin & Stacey is able to tell a love story without all the cutesie stuff around it. It just feels so real and I think that's what really touched me.

Overall, the show is chock full of funny characters, some of whom are so relatable you'll feel you've met them, despite their British accents.

The Welsh, is allowed to shine onscreen. And shine it does.

A gem of a series, Gavin & Stacey immediately draws the viewer in with its humor and warmth, all the while deepening the characters and their lives in ways that inspire real investment from its audience.

The characters are relatable, the story is believable, the cast is superb, and the writing has a freshness that's surprising in the often-clichéd romantic comedy genre.

Well the sweet, wonderfully charming Britcom Gavin & Stacey takes those [old Hollywood] rules and sends them through the shredder.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Unapologetically romantic, this British comedy about a whirlwind relationship between two gentle, vulnerable souls shines brightest when the two of them are together, and considerably less so when their eccentric circle of friends and family take over.

Gavin and Stacey is short on image, positively dodgy on soundtrack ... and really good where it counts.
