    Just bought series 1-5 off ebay. Looking forward to getting it now.

    Anyone like it? I had no idea it started so long back.

    This is actually quite touching/depressing in places isn't. Almost dark.

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    I've got a video of them doing it on stage before it went onto TV ( It may have been after Chewing the Fat which I think had the same characters in sketches). There are parts of that which left me with a bit of grit in the eye.

    It's a brilliant series, used to chat, to the fella who played Winston, in the pub before Celtic games.

    They have pulled off a very rare feat, namely a British sitcom that is, as with the best British sitcoms, sad and realistic in places, but that also runs for several series without becoming stale.

    Did they ever have the episodes down south with subtitles? Or was that just for 'Chewing the Fat' the sketch series that Victor and Jack came out of.

    another great is on R4 - Fags, Mags n Bags set in an Indian cornershop in Scotland. I've wondered if there was any connection.

    BBC2 started showing it recently, then just seemed to disappear (I think)
    Only started watching it last series and thought it was the funniest thing for ages, in fact i'm off to order the boxset now, thx for the reminder

    £26 inc postage it cost me for series 1-5. Bargain.

    I think it's brilliant -- like Last of the Summer Wine, but with swearing!

    Still Game returns tonight. It's still funny, but not up to its former glory.

    However, tonight's episode is worth watching because it features a good friend of mine as Winston's "Stump Double". Answering the call for right leg amputees unconcerned about nudity, he landed the part without audition. Tune in to see his naked arse tonight from 9.30 on BBC1.

    Well, shit! I think that now one can't watch stuff online on BBC catch-up player without giving them your telly licence number. Which in my case I have not got.

    :(

    It just asks if you've got a licence, not for the licence number

    moonsi til worked it out now!

    I love Still Game. Had recently created a series link not realising it was coming back so finding it tonight was a fab surprise. I realised I have never watched the first few episodes either so watched S1 , E1 too.
