This delights me no end as Still Game is one of the few sitcoms I can watch over and over again and still find it as funny as the first time I saw it if not funnier and I'm not even Scottish.

Best of all we don't have long to wait as its coming back in the Autumn with all the main cast though no mention of Shug or Eric but fingers crossed.

Easily one of my all time favourite sitcoms. In my top 5 I would say. :)

Wonder if Peter Kay will guest? He was asking if he could before the show went off air and he was pictured in the audience for the Hydro live show . . . it would certainly give a network boost for the returning series . . .

Network boost? I doubt it's even needed as its been all over the web, papers etc.
Ironically the only place that doesn't seem to have something to say on the matter are these forums.

Am so pleased it's happening. Ever since I heard SG was coming back I kept wondering if it would really come off. Now the filming has started I'm really looking forward to seeing the new shows!

Will it be shown at the Quay in Glasgow before broadcast for the laughter track to be recorded I wonder?

This is great news - I love Still Game. Along with Limmy's Show, it's my favourite Scottish comedy show :)

Speaking of that, I noticed an advert uses the Still Game theme tune (I can't remember what company it was an advert for). It must be copyright free? I read online that apparently a Nectar advert used it earlier this year as well.

I can't listen to that tune without breaking out in to a massive grin :D

Ah ok, thanks for the info. That seems an ironically exotic song name for a show about a couple of old geezers in Craiglang :D
