Storyline

Gavin Shipman lives in Billericay in Essex with his parents Pam and Mick whilst Stacey West and her mother Gwen live in Barry in South Wales across the road from the widowed Gwen's brother-in-law Bryn. Gavin and Stacey frequently speak on the phone through their work and decide to meet in London. Stacey brings her cynical friend Nessa and Gavin his slobbish mate Smithy. Gavin and Stacey spend the night together in a hotel and agree to start dating. Nessa and Smithy also end up in the sack but romantics these two are not. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[Gavin and Stacey are talking over the phone, Stacey is laughing at something Gavin has said]
Gavin: You've got a right dirty laugh, do you know that? You have, you sound like Barbara Windsor.
Stacey: Oh, I know, it's the smoking.
Gavin: I didn't know you smoked.
Stacey: Yeah, I do. But I gonna start giving up when I'm 28 and then definetely stop when I'm 30.

Brilliant first episode
19 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

After speaking for quite some time among various phone conversations, Gavin and Stacey decide to finally meet in the flesh, each bringing the best mates, Smithy & Nessa respectively, along for their initial meeting.

The chemistry between Gavin & Stacy seems to be spot on. Despite Nessa & Smithy (Series Co-creators James Corden and Ruth Jones) providing the quasi-raunchy jokes (which frankly are hilarious in their own right), the series seems to have created a sweet, often humorous aura that I found quite intoxicating. Brilliant first episode. One that definitely won me over.

My Grade: A
