Unfortunately we do not get "City lights" down here. Maybe one day.

Not likely,not without subtitles for the hard of understanding anyway.
Also it finished years ago.
Willie Melvin was a layabout bank employee in the yuppy era. A bit of a mummy's boy, always falling out with his girlfriend.
His best mate was Chancer, an unemployed scruff in a parka who always had several schemes to get rich on the go.Usually at Willies expense.
The humour, much like Rab C Nesbitt, was typicaly Glaswegian.
As a guard on the E&G I saw most of the cast often and got quite sociable with Willies 'mum'.

I really loved Rab Nesbitt. I really wish they would team up again. I had no problems understanding that. Is accent about the same?

Pretty much although a bit 'posher'.
Willie Melvin was Gerard Kelly who as it turns out as I don't watch them appeared in quite a few English soaps in recent years.
There is no DVD of the series but I just discovered today that my son has the only available video.
