I thought I must be alone in the universe in thinking 'Gavin and Stacey' is awful. Admittedly I haven't seen very many episodes, but what I have seen is enough to convince me I'm right. Right, right, right! And having also watched - horrified - Corden and Horne's new sketch show, and the crap they shovelled out for Comic Relief night, my convictions have only been further reinforced. They aren't funny, witty, charming, thoughtful, inventive, innovative or original in any way - it's crap!
But maybe I'm being unfair.
I will make a point of watching 'The Wire' when it broadcasts on terrestrial, however. I've not heard anything bad about it so far.
