    Or maybe two.

    I wonder if Rab C Nesbitt could have got off the ground without Taggart?

    One of the great metaphysical questions....

    I wonder if "still game" we be the same with subtitles? Only early Taggart can be spoken of , before it became generic murrrrrrrrrrrrrderr.

    Visited Iceland shop in Berwick upon Tweed , and spoke to the olderthanmeman behind the counter , and found we were both fans of Still Game [He did look like a hen's tooth] I had to remind him of Naveed's prowess on the football field , pity Naveed is not free to play for Scotland , he can't get away , because he has to chase up the deep fried Mars bar supplier.

    malc, do you think Still Game is past its best? Some of us over on the Amazon Exiles forum - about half a dozen English and Scots, all big fans, found the last two series nowhere near its past glories. Very sad.

    The Still Game cast were a team on Eggheads last August. It was so odd, they’ve all got the same voices but look completely different, particularly Isa! Navid was the captain and they did very well.

    I loved Isa, she is a brilliant actress.

    My dear late mother used to watch Still Game, never missed an episode. But I do agree the shows began to lose that great, sparkling Scottish wit. It is a shame how lame the writing was towards the latter comedy shows.


    Some of the funniest clips was when Winston was in the Bookies and won a few thousand quid on the horses, and when he was collecting his pension. All the actors were very well chosen except I think it was a mistake when they introduced mental Mick into the show. I loved the scene when Winston and Peggy were in the butchers and had a fight for the last pork chops!
