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

The ageing makeup and wigs the lead cast members sported, were so convincing that whenever they filmed on location amongst the general public, no one could tell their real ages. On more than one occasion, Greg Hemphill and Ford Kiernan were approached by women in their sixties and asked out for a date while dressed as Jack and Victor, while Paul Riley was offered help crossing a road whilst feigning Winston's limp.

Having read the only comment listed for Still Game I feel I must do it justice by writing another. Still Game is a series that started as part of Chewin' the Fat, a programme which I did not find remotely funny, although I have been told that is because I am not Scottish. However, the minute Still Game went solo I started watching it, and as much as I did not understand what Chewin' the Fat was trying to do, Still Game I do understand. I do believe, however, it is an acquired taste, and I daresay that it is easier to watch if one speaks Scottish as opposed to watching it with subtitles. Speaking Scottish and knowing something of Scottish culture I can say only that it hits the nail on the head in my opinion, regardless of whether you feel that the characters do justice to your image of old people. It has some exceptionally well-written episodes (Gairden) and I hope it will continue for many more years.
