As someone born in Aberdeen, Scotland, raised in The Republic of Ireland from the age of 4 & then England, & now back in Aberdeen & married to a local, I think River City is superb. The one liners - "Do you think my heid buttons up the back?" & "Did you get a lumber, Mister Henderson?" tickle my funny bone to this day. It's no better, & no worse, than many of the longer established soaps on TV. I have had some wonderful times in Glasgow in recent years - I just wish River City was filmed in the city's streets, rather than on a set, so that one could visit the location. My experience of Glasgow's citizens has always been positive, & it is a beautiful city, so I hope that this programme will encourage people to visit & immerse themselves in the culture of this "dear, green place".
