The rulebook is thrown out, as is any semblance of reality. In a way it’s understandable – why not play with expectations when the audience is this far onside? When even the mere mention of the M&D’s Theme Park raises a laugh, and the word ‘boggin’ can just about serve as a plot point? The Craiglang mantra is, “he who hingeth aboot getteth heehaw,” and with the show only being on until the 13 th of October, you’re best seeing it soon to prevent the Isa in your life from ruining all the banter. In the first three series, the episode titles were all Glaswegian dialect words that were related to the episode. Starting from series four, the episodes were titled using standard English, so that general audiences could understand them.

Hard core fans may need to reach for their tissues at the end. It was a lovely sentiment and one that audience members may find a bit emotional; it had the charm of earlier Still Game episodes and was a welcomed break from the OAP fondling seen previously. It all goes over well enough in the room, but essentially feels like an unpolished vaudeville routine; plenty of laughs, but not much to string it all together. TV Today". Square eyes 24–28 July.

In 2012 actor and playwright Kenny Boyle acquired the rights to the original stage play of Still Game and toured the show, with a new cast, to The Tron theatre, [4] FTH theatre, and The Ayr Gaiety Theatre. [5] The original play had not been staged for 14 years. Kiernan and Hemphill came to see the performances and consequently began considering reviving Still Game officially. [6] The show makes many self-aware jokes about being PC, however, one thing it certainly isn’t is PG. I found myself cringing on more than one occasion. Imagine having a conversation with your granny about sex, throw in some crude sound effects, add in some X-rated filth from supposedly religious figures and you wind up with something that’s more embarrassing than funny. Oh, and why not throw in a cameo from the ghost of a known child sex offender too just to add to the uncouth?
