The first episode of the final series of the classic comedy sitcom, Still Game, was met with mixed reviews, with many branding it a bit of a disappointment.
And the second episode of the ninth and final series of Greg Hemphill and Ford Kiernan’s long running show was also hit with conflicting reactions.
The episode, Cat’s Whiskers, sees Jack and Victor competing to be the next cover star of Twilight monthly magazine, while Edith gets a makeover and Winston competes with a neighbour over the affections of a stray cat.

Some fans were pleased with the new season full stop, taking to social media to share their praise.

Others believed the second episode had cranked things up a notch after a bit of a wobbly start.
Still game tonight was perfect! A lovely nod to episodes of old with some great new ideas not yet crossed. Ps @greghemphill96 Victor suits the beard? superb work everyone! @FordKiernan1 @McCarryJane @GavsterNo1 @MrMJCox @govindajeggy @paulza70 #stillgame

“Boaby the cat, that would be a sexual offence” must be one of the best #StillGame one liners ever… ????

But while many were quick to support the last series of the iconic sitcom, others took to social media to share their disdain over the latest episode.
Jesus, #StillGame has gone from perhaps the best sitcom ever made to an absolute horror show. So sad how far it has fallen. A victim of its own success.
