I disagree with Mr Roberstons review of this programme.
Scotland has produced many fantastic comedy programs like Scotch and Wry, Rab C Nesbitt, Naked Video, Only An Excuse, Chewing The Fat, Still Game and now LEGIT. Personally I thought LEGIT was fantastic and definitely on a par with the others. Instead of being subjected to the usual modern day 'politically correct' student humour, LEGIT brought us the slapstick element which is sadly so often missing from todays TV. Slapstick humour will never die, unlike certain others of genre which are simply 'boring' and aimed at the student age group. LEGIT had some great 'true to life' patter and 'real' situations in it. It wasn't dependant on catchphrases either which I found was a refreshing change. Well done to Steve McNicoll, Jordan Young and everyone else involved. My favourite scene from the series has to be Andy Grays appearance in episode one. I still laugh when I think about it.
For me LEGIT is Only Fools and Horses meets Laurel and Hardy. Those ingredients simply cannot fail.
