Description from the BBC's website:

Once christened "Last of the Summer Whisky" by Sassenachs, Still Game is BBC Scotland's tale of two old men, Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade who've known each other for 60 years and half-grudgingly come to the conclusion they're best friends.

Over six decades Jack and Victor have watched their Glasgow neighbourhood of Craiglang turn from a site of optimistic regeneration into a "toatal sh*tehole", which they now cast their cantankerous gaze over from either side of a landing high in the Osprey Heights tower block.

They spend their time bemoaning the modern world, sticking their noses into other people's business and - despite their friendship - nursing decades-old grievances against each other.
Jack and Victor

As in Last of the Summer Wine, the main characters are surrounded by a gaggle of not-so-golden oldies, including chain-smoking Winston Ingram, always on the lookout for a get-rich-quick scheme, miserly Tam Mullen, Osprey Heights' gossip Isa Drennan and local corner-shop manager, Navid Harrid and his nagging wife Meena, who is never seen on screen.

Where Summer Wine evokes a lost era, however, Still Game is resolutely up-to-date, with Jack and Victor forced to face up to terrifying local hooligans, scrapes with local money-lenders and even a disturbed Dial-a-Bus driver (Robbie Coltrane).

Still Game began life as a stage play, written by Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, with their characters going on to feature heavily in the BBC Scotland sketch series Chewin' the Fat.

The spin-off sitcom began in 2002, initially airing only on BBC Scotland with later series being screened on BBC TWO.

At one stage it was attracting over half of the available audience in Scotland and has gone on to be a significant hit south of the border too, narrowly missing out on a Golden Rose at Montreux in 2003.

As it stands there will be no more Still Game. Ford Kiernan & Greg Hemphill (Jack & Victor) have ended their professional working relationship after a fall out. I do hope that they 'make up' at some point and continue the story.

Banned

The Best!!!!!!!

Bargain, love this series :-D

Seconded! It's a massive shame, and I too hope they make up and work together again.

According to Wikipedia, hope it is true:

However, recently rumours have arisen that Ford and Greg have gotten back together with Paul Riley and that a seventh series of Still Game will indeed be made. They have not announced a release date as of yet.

Always fatal. Unless there's a reference there, I VERY much doubt it.

Just trying to bring some hope to the world
