Reviews

The critically-acclaimed Scottish comedy sitcom Legit stars Jordan Young as lovable rogue Danny and Steven McNicoll as family man Fox, and is written by Robert Florence and Iain Connell.

Danny and Fox are best friends. They work together selling dodgy pirate software at markets, play together and, thanks to a caravan in Danny’s mother’s garden, live in each other’s pocket.

However, the one thing they do not share is a sense of responsibility. Fox is weighed down by it. He wants to be the best father in the world, but his two kids live with their mother and her new boyfriend. If only he could get some money, enough to move out of that ramshackle caravan. Then perhaps he could win back the heart of his ex-girlfriend and become a family man once more.

Danny on the other hand is a free spirit. Still living with his mother, he avoids responsibility like it was an ugly girl looking for a date. An irrepressible "daft boy", a loveable rogue, Danny reckons his job is to drag Fox out of the dark hole he is stuck in, which normally lands his friend in more trouble than before.

Though rarely strictly "legit", Danny and Fox always see themselves as the good guys. They are simply making ends meet the only way they know how in a world of guys who know guys who can get you anything you want.

Every day brings a new scam, a new dilemma, or a new situation that Fox approaches with a sigh of foreboding, and Danny with gusto, certain of that big pay off.

A brilliant piece of Scottish Comedy by two writers who are destined for great things. Deserved a second series which possibly makes this first one all the more satisfying.

I really like this genre,and am a great still game fan. THis series has not had the exposure it deserves,but I think its very clever and well done. Humours a little. 'Near the bone ' at times,but characters are colourful and believable,plots hilarious.

From the writers of Burnistoun so if your a fan of that you know what to expect. Sitcom about 2 guys who work in the Barras. Shame it only got one season but well worth watching.

Came out in that period after Still Game ended and Scottish TV was searching for a successor was probably the best effort since.

I'd recommend especially for people from Glasgow and Scotland but think anyone can enjoy it if your a fan of sitcoms as the accents aren't really thick.

I bought this because it's written by the brilliant Robert Florence and Iain Connell (Burnistoun Series 1 [DVD] Consolevania etc etc).
From the opening bars of the themetune (Troubbble by Stephen Malkmus) I knew I was in for something special and I wasn't wrong. Brilliant characters and gags throughout. Paul James Corrigan (Gary Tank Commander - Series 1 and 2 Box Set [DVD])also crops up in one of the best scenes of the series. I was laughing out loud all the way through. The bit with the wax strips had my wife crying with laughter. Seriously, you can pick this up for next to nothing and it's so good. Anything that these two do is class, you should know this. You really should. It's just a shame there's no series 2. BUY IT!!!!!!

Oh yeah they're in it too Iain and Rab, just for a wee second. Spot them. It's like a free game!

I wasn't expecting great things from this DVD. I thought this is about two dodgy wheeler dealers in a market, like Del Boy and Rodney. While there is an obvious parallel between an older man and his younger protegee, as in 'Fools and Horses', in fact i enjoyed 'Legit', because it is different than 'Only fools and Horses' in that it deals more with the characters' personal lives than their wheeling dealing. 'Legit' is memorable, and the slapstick elements were always done well and funny.

By the end of the series i had got used to the characters and even the canned laughter, which usually really annoys me.

Two words of warning then; firstly the canned laughter. Secondly, as an English person, the Scottish accents took me some getting used to, but that didn't take long.

Also there were no extras on the DVD which was disappointing.

This is an underrated series. I don't know whether there was a second series (i don't think so). I feel it is a series that should have been given time to to get going but because of the poor reviews wouldn't have been.
