Product Description

Product Description

Hiya! Well this is it, the DVD o’ series 1. If you've no seen it, it’s basically all aboot me (Gary Tank Commander) and ma boys Jacko, Charlie & Adam and what we get up tae when we're no oot and aboot Iraq-side. Liiiiiiike.....accidentally recruitin' Jacko's wee sister (Julie) for the forces (oops) and meetin’ General Randy Badger, a mental American that caused pure madness and mayhem when he came tae check oot his roots (no as in his hair). Pickin’ up a cooker for ma da wis a laugh as well, and when the fire brigade threw a benny, we hud tae step in and save the day. Anyhoo, check oot ma thoughts on the world as I pure see it, check oot the madness wi’ ma boys and watch oot for the radges that are Sergeant Thomson, Captain Fanshaw, and ma Dad (sorry Dad you're no a radge, only sometimes) and many others!!!

Gary McLintoch (Greg McHugh) is a Tank Commander in the British Army who loves getting a sun tan, drinking Baileys and philosophising about everything from pizza to the peace process. Having just returned to Edinburgh from Iraq, Gary and his tank crew of Jacko (Robbie Jack), Charlie (Scott Fletcher) and Adam (Paul-James Corrigan), are soon reminded that Mid Lothian can be almost as eventful as the Mid East.

Series 1 sees Gary accidentally recruiting his friend Julie (Leah MacRae), using a tank to collect a cooker in the middle of a training exercise and trying to prevent an American General from causing an international incident. All this is made more difficult as Gary and the boys have to stay one step ahead of the Captain (Miles Jupp) and the fiery Sergeant Thomson (Stuart Bowman), who delights in punishing them in cruel and unusual ways.

Containing flashback footage of the boys in Iraq, as well as monologues where Gary offers his upbeat and often surreal thoughts on the wider world, Gary: Tank Commander is a fresh & funny sitcom about a new kind of comedy hero.

Written by Greg McHugh. Directed by Iain Davidson. Producer Rab Christie.

Also featuring Kevin Bridges, Callum Cuthbertson, Stuart Milligan, Victoria Balnaves, David Kay and David Reed.

A nice surprise. Not bad at all. I may be missing something, though - why does he play the character so camp?

If you have watched and liked some of the fantastic comedy's to come out of Scotland over the years, Then this is a must see.
Greg McHugh plays 'gary' The tank commander, A guy that believes life should be a hell of a lot easier than it is.
If like me you check out some reviews before you buy. Then believe me this is well worth watching.

Got this after reading some good reviews about it. Funny, funny program, only bad part is I lent it to a friend about a year ago and havent seen it since, mind you he has been 'working away' so it seems a bit bad bringing it up. May have to order another.

This one is going to run... caught series 2 on iplayer and got DVD of series 1 to catch up. Didn't realise they were east coasters though and I'm from St.Andrews! Memorable skits include Gary debating with students using Cheesy pasta as a parallel for war. Best episode... army boys get to be firemen for a day. Buy it and get ready for series 2.
