pure gold
17 November 2004 | by (scotland, coatbridge) – See all my reviews

this is an amazing comedy that ever since i was young i always watched and enjoyed now that i am a little bit older i can understand more of the jokes that i didn't get when i was younger.It may not be funny for people though who aren't Scottish as you cant really relate with the characters, but us scots can relate as we see these characters every day in our life. I think that English people wouldn't find this funny but they could still appreciate some of the jokes, so comedies like rab.c.nesbitt and still game are basically just for us scots but could still be enjoyed by others.
