Jack and Victor have broken out of Chewin' The Fat and now have their own six part series on BBC One Scotland. These Glaswegian patter merchants may be long in the tooth but they're Still Game for all kinds of carry-on. Written by

For the first three series of Still Game the creators used Scottish words and spellings (for example: 'Faimly'). As Series 4 was shown in England and Wales too, from that point on standard English was used to title episodes. This was done to help national audiences better understand the titles. Additionally, the later series, characters use notably less Scottish slang and terminology. Presumably again, this was done to make the show more accessible to national audiences. See more »
Still Game is a smashing comedy. Being English, a bit of Translation is necessary, but if you get past that, it's a cracking show.
Some of the laughs are obvious, some are more dry wit. It's a good comedy that improves each time you watch. Jack and Victor are solid likeable characters, who deal with the problems of being old. Aided by Winston, Tam, Isa, Navid and Bobby.
A funny harmless comedy. Take it for what it is.
I can understand why it's not everyone's cup of tea. My wife doesn't like it, but I have friends who do. It's very subjective, and I'd encourage people to give it a go. It's quite unfair of reviews to tell you to avoid a show. You should try it.
Chewin the Fat is also a favourite of mine. Funny sketches, again a bit of translation necessary.
