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
Rab first appeared as a sketch in the show Naked Video. So popular was Rab, the producers gave him his own half hour special in 1989. A full series was later commissioned for 1990. See more »

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 »
To say that this show along with "Chewin the Fat" and "Still Game" are bad comedy obviously means that you are not Scottish yourself...these shows are what the Scottish (well Glasweigan) people love. I have yet to meet a person who does not know what "Geis a gobble ya dobber" or "Oi fannybaws" means. these shows are meant for the people of Scotland so if you do not like them then please do not watch them....life is not meant to be taking so seriously ! The characters in this show are people that you will find in and around Glasgow, whether you choose to look down your nose at them in disgust or find them hilarious is something that you will need to decide. So I think that you should continue to watch your American or English comedies and let the people of Scotland make up their own minds on the shows that are made in our own country !!!
