Cult classic revived
Still Game is a veteran Scottish sitcom that`s been on the air since 2002, switching networks several times. It premiered on BBC Scotland, aired on and off on BBC Two until 2007, launched several specials in 2014 and was revived by BBC One in 2016. Originating as a stage play, Still Game is created, developed, executive produced by and stars Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, and hails from The Comedy Unit, Effingee Productions and BBC Scotland. The current six-episode seventh series debuted on October 7, 2016.
Jack Jarvis (Kiernan) and Victor McDade (Hemphill), two retired Glaswegians, are at the center of the narrative of this cult half-hour comedy series. In the current series they encounter some trouble with modern gadgets, say good-bye to a deceased friend, give relationship advice to Fergie and decide to become dog-sitters for a change of pace.
Current viewership and future prospects
The classic sitcom has attracted its biggest overnight audience ever during the premiere of its revived seventh series, earning a 58% share in Scotland with an impressive 1.3 million viewers. Disgraceful aging has not lost its magnetism, and the two lifelong buddies continue to fend off boredom, test their friends` patience and have as much slapstick fun as they possibly can. The 9.1/10 IMDb score and several BAFTA Scotland Awards that Still Game has managed to earn over the course of its run all suggest that reviving the series was an excellent idea. We hope that there are many more series ahead for this hilarious comedy.
