Great stuff, well defined characters, sharp dialogue, funny situations, and not a duff moment in sight. Qualityyyyyy!

Some nicely recycled material from the original live play turning up in that caravan episode.

Yup they intended that last episode as an homage to the original stageplay
Read somewhere online in an interview with them that they wanted to branch out a bit and make episodes with a different twist here ans there.
They feel people are invested enough to take a few chances.

"Still Game" has much in common with "Only Fools and Horses" and "Fawlty Towers" in that, at their best, they were among the finest sitcoms ever produced in the history of the world. "Fawlty Towers", of course, never went past its best: the writers got out while the going was good. "Only Fools and Horses", however, was allowed to limp on - well past its 'best before' date - before being put out of its misery. Similarly, the writers of "Still Game" persisted in returning to the comedy well for some time after the bucket began coming up only three-quarters full. I'm hoping the final series will be a return to its former glory. Fingers crossed!

Winston because he's the eternal underdog
Boabby a close second and Methadone Mick after that.
