Never watched Rab before, but having discovered and fell in love with another Scottish sitcom (Still Game) recently, I'll give it a go.

There's nothing else on anyway so why not.

Gregor Fisher does it again. Top class Rab C. Nesbitt. I laughed my head off all the way through it. Some of my freinds have said they can't understand a word he says but I have no such problems - I must have a Glasgow gene somewhere in my English DNA. As soon as I heard Rab's voice I knew I was in for a treat and I wasn't disappointed; it was great to see the whole crew back together again, so much so that I hadn't realised how much I'd missed this show and it's about time the show was a regular fixture again/ As Rab says "the scum always rises to the top" and long may it do so.

It was a highly under rated sitcom, especially in its best period, never gets much forum praise and came amazingly low on that odd sitcom top 50 list. But if it wasn't Scottish I doubt we'd have seen so much of it, they tend to get easier recommissions if half good because of the box ticking thing. I think if it had ended sooner, near its best then it may be higher rated now. Fantastic characters, very good writing at its peak. Shall watch special soon.
