Brilliant writing, brilliant casting, brilliant comedy, brilliant stories...just brilliant all around!
17 November 2014 | by Rednoi82See all my reviews

I've stumbled upon the Binge On The BBC section on Hulu and it has been the best i could ever done.

After becoming hooked by Gavin and Stacey, I watched all episodes back to back, I had to find out more about Ruth Jones.

Stella, her new pride and joy, is absolutely phenomenal. I'm not at all familiar with Welsh culture, but just by watching this show alone you will be, because it's addictive. The comedy and story- lines are universal. And that Welsh flare, the Welsh valley based characters are beautifully written. The characters are all adorably flawed which creates great room for story telling. And Ruth takes full advantage of that room.

The casting is brilliant. Every part is spot-on to the T.

I can now say that I'm and avid British television fan.

Just brilliant! Can't wait for series (season) 4!!!
