YMMV / Gavin and Stacey

  • Moral Event Horizon: Stacey trying to get pregnant without Gavin knowing. She stops taking her birth control for over a year, and doesn't think to ask him whether he's ready to be a father.
  • Retroactive Recognition: James Corden guest-starred in Doctor Who twice and now hosts The Late Late Show.
  • Tear Jerker: The letter from Stacey's dad in series 1, episode 6.
  • Wangst: Stacey's endless longing for home in series two.
    • Stacey's prone to this, her wangsting over not being able to have a baby right there and then.
      • Although they have been trying regularly for well over a year with no results at all, which has to get kind of worrying.
    • Pam tapdances in this trope frequently with some of the issues she throws up, be it her complaining at Mick and Gavin following her misunderstanding of a no-carb diet, to an utterly jerkish moment in the Christmas Special where she begins screaming at Stacey and her family because Gavin has opted to take a job that will allow him to be closer to Stacey.
