Firstly - don't you just love it? I can watch it again and again and it always makes me laugh. Earlier we had Bryn saying "Fee Fi Fo Fum" and then "Joking, I am - I'm not really a giant".

Secondly - why is Owain Hughes funny?

Thirdly - Ness was nearly in All Saints, drove trucks for Eddie Stobart, worked in Bollywood and nannied for Richard and Judy. What else?

Whatever happened on that fishing trip, it was legal in most countries.

Pamelaaaar is brilliant.

I want to be adopted by Pam and Mick.

Every character is perfectly cast.

I think.It's one of my favourite programmes ever.

I love the surprise party for Gwen episode.Bryn is genius in it.

We dont know what happened on the fishing trip, other than it was unnatural between uncle and nephew, it was cold and soup was involved.

My boona

I'd forgotten all about "selfish" Kate Adie grin grin

I love it. Nessa and Stacey also spent a great night with Russell Brand but didn't end up in his book. She also used to turn tricks in Amsterdam with marsbars.

Big fat sue.

And illegal in several countries.

It was physically impossible too.

Think 'Wayne Hughes' is just a popular welsh name.
Fat no more pat!

Nessa also woke up next to a couple of Gladys Knights' Pips

Ha! Yes usual I love all the funny names of the peripheral characters. Big Fat Sue, Chinese Alan, Dave Coaches, Japanese Margaret.

Aaah. <happy sigh>

I was thinking about G and S the other day when my sister was talking about someone she knows called 'fat Tracey'. Made me think of Pamlaar and her mate big fat Sue.

Dave Coach was his real name. David Lloyd coach.

I loved it when Chinese Alan came in in his stag night tshirt. "Anyone fancy a Chinese"

And Pete! Peter Sutcliffe on his cap.

Such talent from James Cordon and Ruth Jones.

Always wondered. Did Gav and Stacey have a girl or a boy?

Smithy and the toilet brush! The double meanings of the KFC....

Ah yes, the toilet brush grin

Don't mention the toilet brush! grin

Gavlaaaar!

I have a cigar at Christmas and a pipe at Easter, always has always will

Hassled Fri 02-Aug-13 12:54:03

Yes, the combination of the Wests, the Shipmans and the Sutcliffes grin

I like Deano and his half and half tea and coffee. I especially like how he specified tea first in the mug - I really must try it one day.

WireCat Fri 02-Aug-13 13:57:49

It's brilliant!

I love watching them & watch them all over & over.

I loves it I do. I can't think of a favourite moment, because it's all great, but dh and I crack up at, 'Midgeure cheddar.'

I have a friend who drinks 'half and half'.

If you like G & S have you seen Stella? Written by and starring Ruth Jones. Same seemingly gentle, masking a layer of madness, humour and loads of English/Talk Tidy.

Rather like The Royle Family (when it was still good, before it degenerated into bad sitcom) the best bits of G&S are when they're just being "dull".

EG - when Pete is admiring Mick's oven gloves, or when they're discussing how to cook the turkey this year. Oh and when they're trying to work out who sent the Xmas card and it turned out to be Dawn's stepbrother.
