Classic BBC Sitcom about Rab C. Nesbitt, a stringed vested philosopher (in his own way) who spends his days getting drunk in his local with best mate Jamesie and going home to clash with wife Mary and his two sons Gash and Burnie. The series follows Rab as he talks to the camera about the way life is and the state of the country, When he's not doing that he is drinking, trying to keep his family together or shouting the odds at anybody who is stupid enough to argue the point. No matter where in Govan you go you cant escape the wrath of the Nesbitt man!Written by
The Two Ways pub is a real Glasgow pub and it is the exact pub they filmed at least the external shots for every episode of the original 90's run of series, but it is not in Govan, it is in Finnieston at the top end of Argyle Street. See more »
Rab's age is somewhat inconsistent. In the original script of the episode 'Rat' ( made in 1990 ), he gives his age as 39. In 'Country' from series two ( 1992 ) he gives his age as 45, in 'Pie' and 'Affair' from series five ( 1996 ) he says he is 44 whilst in 'New' from series seven ( 1998 ) and 'Bug' from series eight ( 1999 ) his age is given as 45 again. In the 2010 episode 'Bottle', he gives his age as 58. See more »
[Mary has gone under a serious operation in hospital. But something unforseen has happened as she lies in bed afterwards]
I'm afraid your stitches have burst, Mrs. Nesbitt.
Oh, thank goodness for that, nurse. For a minute there I though I'd pissed mysel.

At the end of every episode, we see a television with Rab on it. He rambles about something, but we cannot hear due to the music. As the credits end, Rab leaves his chair and shouts "Beat it!" See more »
To say that this show along with "Chewin the Fat" and "Still Game" are bad comedy obviously means that you are not Scottish yourself...these shows are what the Scottish (well Glasweigan) people love. I have yet to meet a person who does not know what "Geis a gobble ya dobber" or "Oi fannybaws" means. these shows are meant for the people of Scotland so if you do not like them then please do not watch them....life is not meant to be taking so seriously ! The characters in this show are people that you will find in and around Glasgow, whether you choose to look down your nose at them in disgust or find them hilarious is something that you will need to decide. So I think that you should continue to watch your American or English comedies and let the people of Scotland make up their own minds on the shows that are made in our own country !!!
