    Anyone know if the Scotish ITV series made it out on DVD or LD?
    Sort of a Scotish version of married with children but makes the Bundys look like the all american family.
    Had a few episodes on tape which someone borrowerd (stole).
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.

    Now get out of here before I tell your mother.

    Ahhhh, Rab C Nesbit. I went to the same High School as Elaine C Smith (though a few years later!), and my Best Man's her cousin.
    AFAIK, it's not available on DVD, though I know it was released on VHS in the UK. Were the episodes later or early episodes? The quality of the writing in the first few series were way way better than the later period.
    It's very very Scottish in tone & dialogue - I don't know if there's much of a market for it outside the UK, certainly not without subtitles :/

    Thank You!
    Thought I was the only one who ever heard of it!
    Yes, I had to back the tapes up a lot to get every word.
    Subtitles would be cheating but then again ......
    I had the tapes back in 1991 but I don't know if that was the early or late period, I thought it was one of the truly funny shows on ITV.
    The mesh shirt was too much.
    I got stuck in a train going to Glasgow once full of Ranger fans and I swear I could understand them because I use to watch Rab C Nesbit.
    After Rab, getting the Brad Pitt Piker dialect on Snatch was a breeze!
