Still playing catch-up on Gavin + Stacey, Series 1.
I’ve been re-watching, and there’s a definite depth to the writing that
you don’t pick up on until the second or third time through. Reminds me of one of my favorite shows of all time, Arrested Development. You could watch AD 10X and still not pick up on all the details and inside jokes. Not to get too far off topic, but IMDB reports an Arrested Development movie is in the works for 2009 release.
Back to Gavin + Stacey. Not only has it been a fan-hit, but its collected a fair number of awards.
See the full round-up after the jump.
