Point one, the Glasgow accent is difficult and lots of the characters must have been Glaswegian to have put in such an effective performance. Everyman and his dog can "do" a scottish accent, Glasgow, no, I have spent time working there and listened to them, Taggart was mild compared to this. But it all adds to the effect and the dry, very dry, Glasgow type humour. You have to hang in there a bit at times to catch the dialogue but the end result is worth the effort, very funny and could be watched again and again. Point two, some one star reviewers remarked that it is not "Still Game" and they are quite right, this is an entire new series idea but some of the flavour is there, with the same slightly sad and at times mild black humour and surprise shock/funny endings. This could have been "Winston's" (Paul Riley) council job before he became a pensioner in a block of council flats. What a shame the BBC ditched after two series, I am sure they could have carried on for three or four. However, "Faulty Towers" ended whilst John Clease though they were still fresh so perhaps better to leave that section of the appretiative audience wanting more than run out of ideas. Reviewers thought series two was even better so I look forward to it and be thankful for what we have.
