Absolutely dreadful :lol: .

 

I know I said I wouldn't watch it but I knew I'd resort to it eventually. Fans will have waited so many years for that :rofl: .

 

Better than Father Ted aye :rofl: ? Strange people.

Watched it so he could come on here and slate it :lol:

Have always loved still game and was worried about wisdom of bringing it back in case they ruined legacy. Dont think they have done yet but I hope it improves

The money thing at the end with Winston and his brother confused me a bit !!

unless there is an add-on to it next few episodes .

Winston and his brother didn't work - desperate springs to mind

Have to agree, unless it's getting followed on later in the the series then it seemed a bit pointless.

Overall I enjoyed it laughed a few times but to me it was quite a slow to get going. I hope that over the coming weeks it gets back to its brilliance again

Had a few half decent moments, but the endings of both main storylines - Jack in the bath and Winston's brother - were both anti-climactic, or, in the latter case, non-existent. Reminded me of writing stories myself in primary school and never getting round to finishing them.

 

Have I Got News For You immediately before it, on the other hand, was rather good.

It's a good show and a despicable little country. If you don't like that, vote No.

 

It's a thread about a TV show.

HIGNFY is consistently good and even when it's not, it's usually down to the guests or host.

 

As for Still Game, I laughed a couple of times but overall I thought it was pretty poor. I really hope it improves but I have a feeling that by the end of the series you could condense the best bits into a half hour show. Hope I'm wrong though.

I thought it was good, not a patch on previous shows though. Personally, I think they should go back to making a hogmanay special every year instead of making a new series.

Chuckled at a few bits but pretty disappointed.

 

The show introduced a new word into my vocabulary though.

 

Clackerbag :lol:

I'm sure it's been used before I'm Still Game. But, yes, it is a great word.

Watched it as knew everyone else in the country would be watching it, and that I'd eventually end up watching it at some point.

 

Nice try though :rofl: .

Having recently watched (again) the previous 6 series, I was concerned that they wouldnt reach these heights again. 

 

Whilst last night wasnt side splitting funny, I did laugh at Victor on the pan, the "arm and a leg" line from Eric and Victor getting the stone to keep his keys in. 

 

I think their is still enough laughs to keep me watching but does anyone know what was different about the production? Was it filmed in higher def than previous series? I found it a bit off putting for a while. 

 

O and HIGNFY was extremely funny with Kevin Bridges comment about doing something to a pig leaving me in tears.

I think it was higher def. It's been 8 or 9 years since the last series was aired.

Imagine making a point of telling strangers that you thought something was shite and wasn't going to watch it, only to watch it to come and tell the same strangers that he thought that it was shite.

Was pretty average, but not too bad. I think there was a bit too much build up the last couple of weeks. Maybe suffered a wee bit from that

Imagine thinking a TV show about pensioners swearing and calling each other ******s is shite and that you're not going to watch it, then deciding to give it another chance due to the lengthy and excessive hype and reviews of the preceding stage show and run-up to the series debut, only to watch it and be disappointed they've stuck to the same tired routine since the last series 9 years ago.

You're very upset about something you decried as shite before it even aired.

 

Why is that?

If by "upset" you mean "expected more from", then yes, let's pretend I was "upset".

 

I "upset" from Still Game after it was so talked about. I "upset" it after it was so long in the making.

Sounds like you were looking forward to the new series and feel let down that it wasn't as good as you hoped it would be.

 

Which makes telling us all that it's 'shite' that little bit stranger.

I loved Still Game when it was in its pomp.

 

But that last night was dire.

It was disappointing. Hopefully the series will get better but it smacked of running out of ideas.

Thing about still game is it wasn't ever roar out funny. It was about the characters. Last night was funny but not enough tam, Bobby or navid. It will get better and I will be at the live show in Feb.

Half the episode was about Jack being stuck in a bath - absolutely chronic

Thought it was very funny, key in the stone was well thought out, and the introduction

of Winstons brother was an added laugh.

Bobby looking a bit bigger behind the bar.

Brilliant to have it back.

Father Ted was/is total pish.

It had its moments.

 

The HD format and the camera angles makes it feel different though, the actors as well seem out of touch and not so relaxed in their roles, trying to hard to get in the funniest moments from the last series (The boaby put down, isa gabbing and navid & mina)

 

Hopefully it will get better as it goes, but there was enough laughs for me to give it pass marks.

Never actually found the Irish funny.

 

I also haven't watched a lot of Still Game over the years it was aired , the odd episode now and again. Watched Chewin the Fat.

 

Us Scots are far funnier. Even if Still Game isn't as good as expected it's still funnier listening to two old farts swearing and handing out some abuse than puting up with even more hyped Irish humour....

I didn't watch any of the old still game but found myself watching last week, which I found mildly funny. Tuned in tonight and didn't laugh once. Doubt I'll watch next week

I found this week's one much better. There were more characters involved so the show didn't get bogged down.

The thing with comedy though is it's all about your own sense of humour and the things in life you can relate to.

For instance if you are a self loathing Scotsman who hates Scotland you probably have made your mind up already that it's pish. After all everything about Scotland is pish in your eyes.
