    Truly is the end of an era mate. In it's prime, it was one of the greatest Scottish comedies of all time.

    Thanks for the heads up! Gutted it's the last series, provided lots of laughs down the years.

    As a non-Scot I loved the show, one of my favourite comedies. I think it should have stopped after 5-6 seasons though. The last one, in particular, felt a bit forced.
    Still was funny at times, just felt it will taint the legacy.

    I think the majority on here would agree with that mate. It was certainly said a lot during the last series in this thread

    I watched it from the start again recently, it was a brilliant show. Surprised how few people down here know about it.

    Yeah I know a few people that watched it but not many. I loved the Whiskey tour one where they just keep going round and round getting more pished.

    Old ones are great, the last series was terrible so not holding out much hope for this one.

    Think the last 2 they tried for the English market - the season before last in particular, they were pronouncing stuff in a weird way to make it more clearer etc rather than the usual patter!

    They really shouldn’t have brought it back. It’s nowhwere near as good as it was, it was * outstanding and the old series still stand up.

    The likes of Two Doors Down are better than it now.

    Really? I tried watching that twice and had to turn it off. I thought it was awful.

    Even if it isn't what it once was, for me it's still miles funnier than all of the other so called comedies that are currently on TV.

    I've actually enjoyed the latest two seasons, I think more than the average person.

    It certainly does suffer from good old nostalgia and the fact it came back after many years, but try not to be too critical of it and have it living up to 10 years of hype and it's actually still good.

    By far funnier in it's earlier days, but then most things are.
