Comedy sketch show set in the fictional Scottish town of Burnistoun near Glasgow. The show follows the exploits of characters such as an aspiring girl band and a serial killer who is unhappy at his portrayal in the local media.
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

And now for the lottery numbers - which are, funnily enough, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, and the bonus number 13.
Rab C. Nesbitt:
What? I chose 26, but it's 7, 8, 9, 12!
Rab C. Nesbitt:
[...speaking to his hand, after he lost the lottery]
Rab C. Nesbitt:
You, you are the hand that bought the ticket, I'll give ya...
[beats his hand up with the chip pan before it breaks, and Mary tries to stop him]

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 »
This programme first came to our screens after Gregor Fisher had made Rab famous through his one man rants on Naked Video. Despite the humour used the show also acuratly portrayed the way life for so many underclass Scots.
The wit in this programme is something to enjoy. Fisher was born to play Nesbit and Elaine C. Smith is also excellent as Rab's long suffering wife Mary Doll. Andrew Fairley and the late Eric Cullen played their parts as the useless siblings of Rab and Mary excellently.
Despite the many roles that actors take on in their careers there is often one character in particular they will be remembered for. This is true in no one more than Gregor Fisher.
