UK comedy Gavin and Stacey is about to get another run on Australian telly.
If you haven’t seen it on Seven, or the UK TV channel, now ABC2 comes to your rescue.
The show will go right back to S1E1 from 9:30pm Thursday February 25.
Gavin is an ordinary boy from England; Stacey is an ordinary girl from Wales. They speak every day on the phone at work, and yet they’ve never met … until now.
After countless conversations long distance, Gavin and Stacey have become quite obsessed with each other: Stacey’s desk is littered with photos of Gavin, and Gavin has been counting the days until he will finally get to meet his Barry Island babe in the flesh.
But when Gavin and Stacey finally meet and their ordinary worlds come together, we see, through their families, their friends and their differences, that there’s no such thing as “ordinary’’ after all.
Episode 1: Thursday February 25, 9.30pm
Gavin and Stacey finally plan to meet up. Stacey’s guardian uncle, Bryn, is concerned as ever for his niece’s well-being and provides her with a rape alarm for her visit to London. Gavin’s mum, Pamela, is very excited for her “little prince”, while his best mate, Smithy, is sceptical and more concerned about what Stacey’s mate, Nessa, is going to look like. Nessa, meanwhile, couldn’t care either way.
When the four friends meet up, several pints and eight aftershocks later, romance blossoms in the most unexpected of places.
