Gavin & Stacey: Great Show, Fat Friendly & Down Right Fun!


I only just now finished watching the last episode of season three of Gavin & Stacey and what can I say?
I’m all verklempt! It’s so good! I love all of the characters. There’s not one I dislike or doesn’t fit. The writing is good.
I have to say though that what I love most is the simple fact that the show features fat people in a non-humiliating or poking fun at way. I love “Nessa” & “Smithy!” “Nessa” just might be my fictional heroine! My would-be alter-ego, perhaps? I just love her! And “Smithy” is just the cutest thing! I know the show is called “Gavin & Stacey” but if it weren’t for their respective best friends, “Nessa” & “Smithy” the show just wouldn’t work. It’s brilliant and charming and you just get sucked right in. Luckily the seasons are only 6 or so episodes long and only 30 minutes each at that. Just Lovely!

Haven’t heard of “Gavin & Stacey?” Well, it’s on BBC America or you can watch it online, here:

    Love the show, but Stacey is getting on my nerves. It seems as though she is written more and more needy as the seasons go on.

    You are dead-on with the needy thang. I don’t wanna give anything away, but yes, needy as hell! She seemed much more laid back before.
