I caught up with Jack and Victor on TV during series 5 and thought it was brilliant. I bought the complete series 1-5 for my husband for Christmas thinking that if he did not like it I could claim ownership of the DVD's.

We started to watch them over the Christmas period when there was nothing on TV and it soon became a regular part of our routine to put the DVD's on of an evening. Every series is an absolute masterpiece and you will all probably recognise some of the charactors from your own neigbourhood, from Tam who has yet to buy a pint to Isa the gossip. Naveed is played brilliantly and we sit and wait for the new series to be shown later this year.

Even if you are not Scottish, you will find it hard to stop laughing at the boys, every episode is an absolute gem, a masterpiece. By the time we had finished watching all the DVD's we felt like Jack and Victor were old friends of ours.

A must buy for all who love comedy at it's best

None of my friends in England have heard of this comedy show, it's shamefully underpublicised here despite being one of the most original, clevery written and hilarious shows about. Could it be that the BBC are prejudiced against Scots? Surely no...? The situations are funny, but the jewel of this show is the banter bewteen the characters. This is where Still Game stands out - there's no sense of them throwing in a funny line and waiting for the laughs, it's more subtle and sustained humour which makes the characters and situations more believable and likeable. The complete series 1-5 come in a lovely box set, with no extras but you can't complain for £37 really. For any fan of the show, this box set is a really lovely thing to own which will make you laugh out loud with every re-visit.

this show is absolutely brilliant. i have been hunting for this down south (england) for ages, but to no avail apart from one of the later series on dvd. but finally it's available in a box set. Jack and Victor are hilarious and Naveed the shopkeeper is funny with his banter with his wife. a number of episodes that i like are the one with Robbie Coltrane as a bus driver, the one where Bobbie the barman's dirty little secret is found out by a couple of the locals and they're trying to keep the gossip from Isa.

but for those of you that don't know about they're humble beginnings in chewing the fat, it is worth buying that as well as still game because the little sketches of these hilarious elderly odd couple are priceless. especially the ones where they are sat in the pub wi there cronies havin a wee sing song (the title of this review is just a sneaky peek at one of them) and the purchase that one of them made in the gents toilets for pleasing the ladies.

so to sum up this is just brilliant comedy that beats any other that's on the box at the minute. so sit back relax and don't forget the incontinence pants.....coz you're guaranteed to wet yourself!!!!!

I could write an entire book about how funny this series is, but instead, I'll just write this review. Greg Hemphill and Ford Kiernan have consistently managed to capture all that is funny and witty about the black and earthy Scottish humour. Instead of glossing over the colourful language of many Glasweigan people, they have shown it in all it's glory, and also given us a wide and charismatic range of characters ranging from the endearing (Isa) to the witty (Navid) to the side-splittingly funny (Winston). Along the way, they have also come up with a vast range of plots which are never dull, and always interesting.

The dialogue is realistic with more than enough comedy thrown in to be hilarious. The locations too are realistic, but are given charm by the people in them, some of whom are so convincing as elderly Glasweigans it would be impossible for a 'Still Game' virgin to tell otherwise. Add to the mix some of the most unashamedly blunt, honest and funny one-liners that you have ever heard in British comedy and what you get is a classic. This programme is sadly underrated, though I hear it is now becoming more popular South of the border. I hope this is on television for years to come.

Still Game is a Scottish sitcom, a spin-off from the sketch show series Chewin' the Fat. Originally beginning as a stage play, it was created by Chewin' The Fat's Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, who also play the lead characters. Since it debuted on September 1st, 2002, Still Game has shown thirty five episodes, including a Christmas and Hogmanay special.

It has become a Scottish institution, especially the Hogmanay show.

The title refers to the antics of two Glaswegian pensioners named Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade. Set in Craiglang, a fictional district of Glasgow, the show follows the lives of Jack, Victor and their various friends.

If you liked Rab C then this is a shoe-in for you. Sort of para-handy for todays generation. If you are Scottish and have never seen this then go to the back of the class and put the conical hat on with the big D on it. It does not get better than this at summing up the Scottish psyche.

Whilst I am a bit trepadacious (is that a word?) about the DVD for series 6 (Hopefully Santa got my note) having read the reviews of that, I can only concur with the vast majority of reviewers here to say that Still Game is the best TV comedy of the "Noughties". I can only assume that the producers of two pints of lager and a packet of rubbish have compromising pictures of Beeb executives for its virual takeover of the late night comedy slots, when this excellent series should be on there at least, if not in the prime time slot. I can only assume that there is some sort of hangover from Rab C Nesbitt that suggests that the "English" may find the accents/idioms hard to understand, which doesn't appear to be a bar to programmes littered with "Mockney"/Scouse/Brum etc accents. Cultural racism I call it - but that's for another day. In effect this is no way as "Scottish/Glesga" as RCN and heartily endorse this great value package. There are 5 series on here for goodness sake and there are belly laughs galore on each and every one of them. Some of the humour is "Early doors" subtle and some of it is Laurel and Hardy slapstick. The rest of it is just bloody funny.
