Classic BBC Sitcom about Rab C. Nesbitt, a stringed vested philosopher (in his own way) who spends his days getting drunk in his local with best mate Jamesie and going home to clash with wife Mary and his two sons Gash and Burnie. The series follows Rab as he talks to the camera about the way life is and the state of the country, When he's not doing that he is drinking, trying to keep his family together or shouting the odds at anybody who is stupid enough to argue the point. No matter where in Govan you go you cant escape the wrath of the Nesbitt man! Written by

At the end of every episode, we see a television with Rab on it. He rambles about something, but we cannot hear due to the music. As the credits end, Rab leaves his chair and shouts "Beat it!" See more »
Being a bit of a nerd when it comes to British Sitcom this gem holds a joint 1st in my all time favourite British sitcoms with Steptoe and son! The social awareness here mirrors the state of the nation. As you watch this over the years it was made it gives an insight of how the nation was coping and feeling at the time. Not so much "Low Life" as "Real life"!Proper people in proper social situations make us feel we all know people like this. Sympathy and empathy sit on the sofa hand in hand to enjoy the real comedy and emotion of real life. This is not " The Good Life" or " To The Manor Born" ! .. this is a classic laugh or cry social metaphor. I hope they make a new series of Rab in his twilight years..what would he make of the internet and Britains Got talent!!
