Harry H. Corbett,
Two early thirties best friends live together while having completely different personalities. While their girlfriends try to help them take on more responsibilities the boys seldom respond well and usually end up drinking together.
Classic BBC Sitcom about Rab C. Nesbitt, a stringed vested philosopher (in his own way) who spends his days getting drunk in his local with best mate Jamesie and going home to clash with wife Mary and his two sons Gash and Burnie. The series follows Rab as he talks to the camera about the way life is and the state of the country, When he's not doing that he is drinking, trying to keep his family together or shouting the odds at anybody who is stupid enough to argue the point. No matter where in Govan you go you cant escape the wrath of the Nesbitt man!Written by
The Two Ways pub is a real Glasgow pub and it is the exact pub they filmed at least the external shots for every episode of the original 90's run of series, but it is not in Govan, it is in Finnieston at the top end of Argyle Street. See more »
Rab's age is somewhat inconsistent. In the original script of the episode 'Rat' ( made in 1990 ), he gives his age as 39. In 'Country' from series two ( 1992 ) he gives his age as 45, in 'Pie' and 'Affair' from series five ( 1996 ) he says he is 44 whilst in 'New' from series seven ( 1998 ) and 'Bug' from series eight ( 1999 ) his age is given as 45 again. In the 2010 episode 'Bottle', he gives his age as 58. See more »

At the end of every episode, we see a television with Rab on it. He rambles about something, but we cannot hear due to the music. As the credits end, Rab leaves his chair and shouts "Beat it!" See more »
I was actually recommended Rab C Nesbitt by a very close IMDb friend, and I was immediately interested. Then personal things clouded over and I got behind with my movie watching and forgot about it. A couple of months ago I was eventually in the right state of mind to see it. It took me a while, but it was time well spent and I am glad I was recommended it.
Rab C Nesbitt is not for everybody, I was warned this and I can understand why, but I genuinely find it a great show. A vast majority of the time, Rab C Nesbitt is perfect, with effective production values(not the definition of nice but suited the period and the show's tone very well), the catchy theme tune, the witty and hilarious(with the odd moving part too) writing and the clever story lines.
The characters may not be the most likable ever or the easiest to like at first, but I found myself warming to them due to how well written and acted they were. Gregor Fisher is simply born for this role, and he plays it as if he already knows that with superb comic timing, and Elaine C Smith and the rest of the cast support him perfectly.
While Rab C Nesbitt is brilliant, the last two series weren't quite as good as the rest. They weren't terrible, they were still well acted with some funny moments, but something was missing. I think the problems were Gash's recasting, I could never warm to the replacement, and the ideas weren't as original or as clever.
Overall though, this show is really great, I can really see why it was recommended to me, and I could kick myself for taking so long to watch or review it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
