Show Summary

Still Game is a comedy based around the lives of pensioner pals Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade. It's set in and around a fictional part of Glasgow called Craiglang, and Jack and Victor's home in Osprey Heights. Focusing on the ironies and comedy of old age with humour, tenderness and pathos, these OAPS prove they're still game for anything the world can throw at them. The show enjoyes the highest viewing figures that any Scottish programme has seen in the last ten years. The third series first episode alone drew 1,520,100 viewers - 47% of Scotland's total viewing audience. This makes it the most watched BBC comedy in Scotland ever, outperforming even its parent show, Chewin' the Fat. After negotations with BBC London, Still Game will finally receive the UK-wide slot it deserves, as of series 4. (Previously, fans from south of the border have only been able to watch the series through Sky digital channel 941 or on DVD/VHS.)

  • This is one of the best comedies of all time !

    Still Game is one of my favourite comedies and I really think they should make a 7th series of it, at least. In fact, I think there might be a 7th series of Still Game coming out this year despite some of the main cast falling out with each other, but I think they're friends again so it is possible that there will be a 7th series of Still Game, also on this site it does say the status for the series is 'returning series' so maybe series 7 is being made the now but we're not being told yet...! To keep it a surprise...!moreless
  • Still game follows the life of elderly people in a fictional Glasgow housing estate, Craiglang. It focusses mainly on two main characters, and best friends, Jack & Victor.

    From the makers os Chewin' the fat, Still game has got to be the funniest comedy on television today. Jack and Victor are just so comical nevermind Winston, Navid, Tam (just to mention a few). The good thing for me is that I see everyday glasgow and that alot of the things in still game acyually does happen funnily enough. Every time a new series is starting it is the main talk around glasgow. And when it finishes the first thing you'll want to know is " When does the next one start ? ". If you haven't seen it then I strongly recommend sitting down one night when its on and give it a watch.moreless
  • The tales from the folk of Craiglang, revolving around two pensioners called Jack and Victor...

    9.1
    Still Game sees the characters Jack Jarvis (Ford Kiernan) and Victor McDade (Greg Hemphill) – originally seen as short sketches on Chewing The Fat – remembering the good old days in Craiglang, and now how it seems to have gone downhill a lot.



    The scripts – written by Kiernan and Hemphill – are top quality, and the great cast of characters – especially the shopkeeper Navid, the barman Boabby and Jack and Victor's friend Winston - who lost his leg in one episode. Special guest stars who have made an appearance included Robbie Coltrane, Sylvester McCoy and Clive Russell.



    5 side-splitting seasons so far, and hopefully a few more to go yet...moreless
  • Every time this comes on i\'m so excited about watching it. A funny , humorous show with colourful, and well written characters.

    9.5
    This has to be one of the funniest programs, i\'ve watched in years. It\'s rare to get alot of Scottish sitcoms nowadays. Rab C.Nesbitt was great to watch. But now it has ended this has to be another Scotish comedy classic. OK, some episodes look at the real issues in life, the drama but it always comes to a hillarious conclusion with Still Game. Jack and Victor being the best sketch to watch in Chewing the Fat. They deserved their on series, which has given us 4 seasons and a Christmas special. And there is also a 5 series coming later this year. Still Game, Still Great!moreless
  • It's a great comedy!

    This show is great!

    It's a spinoff to "Chewin' the fat", but it still manages to be really funny, every season is really great, it has really good characters and the acting and writing is done very well.



    The humor is mostly for people who live around Scotland because some of the jokes can only bee understood if you live/lived in scotland.

    Overall, me and my family think its really funny and i can't wait for the fifth seriesmoreless
