Scottish sketch show which first appeared on radio. Featuring such characters as dodgy decorators Bish and Bosh, Ballistic Bob, The Lonely Shopkeeper, The Foulmouthed Fishermen and The Man From Kilmacolm. Mostly filmed in Glasgow.
A corrupt, junkie cop with Borderline Personality Disorder attempts to manipulate his way through a promotion in order to win back his wife and daughter while also fighting his own borderline-fueled inner demons.
I admit it wasn't an instant hit with me, but once I had watched it a few times on DVD it grew and I think both series have their hilarious moments. I think the clue is in your comment about this being from the same people who brought you Still Game. There are two issues here; 1) no it wasn't as Greg Hemphill had no input, and 2) it ISN'T Still Game so no comparison can be made. At least it brought a few unknown faces into the public eye (the 'little & large' new boys Woody & Wallace were brilliant).
It wasn't everyone's cup of tea but must have been popular enough to get a 2nd series
