Show Summary

Father Ted is an Irish comedy about 3 parish priests living on Craggy Island - a remote island, off the Irish west coast. The main four characters are Father Ted Crilly (Dermot Morgan), Father Dougal Maguire (Ardal O'Hanlan) and Father Jack Hackett (Frank Kelly) and their housekeeper (who just can't stop making tea) Mrs. Doyle (Pauline McLynn). Ted was put on the island as a punishment for going on holiday to Las Vegas with money intended for a sick child - of course..."The money was just resting in his account"!

      I absolutely love this show. It's brilliant and always has me in stitches.
    • I considered it an absolute classic for a while, but after a while the characters became a little boring and nothing was developing!

      Of course, this is great British humor, and this is what British humor is like, and this is what it is supposed to be, but still, a good joke is good still good after a few hearings, but not after two seasons... The characters are great, the whole Craggy Island is great, but absolutely nothing is going on, the plot is based on the same type of behavior of 3-5 main characters, and after maybe 10 episodes I stopped watching, although I have it on DVD. Most likely, if I once feel like it, I will take it out once again and have a good laugh at Father Jack's Feck it!", Dougal being a total loser and those other priests whose name I forgot who are always competing with Craggy Island etc. but not for a while...moreless
    • Even before Chirpy, Burpy, Cheap Sheep" to after "Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse", every episode is a definate entertaining 1/2 hour of laughter.

      This show is an absolute hoot. It is a show that, had the actor not sadly passed away, I would begin a letter writing campaign to bring it back. It is a favorite in my house.



      The 3 Fathers play so well off each other (including Father Jack, who hardly says anything but FECK DRINK! GIRLS!"). The plots are way out there, and there are quotes from this show that, if you have seen the episode, can bring a watcher to tears laughing just by speaking them. Even before Chirpy, Burpy, Cheap Sheep" to after "Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse", every episode is a definate entertaining 1/2 hour of laughter.moreless

      Father Ted, what a show. It's hilarious, witty, and ridiculous. The casting is superb, the humour is spot on. Over the years, this great show has provided me with none stop laughter, the writing is genius, the story is genius, the show is genius. It's sad that the show didn't last longer, of course we all know why it didn't, but to see more Father Ted would have been excellent. I love how Ted is the level headed one, surrounded by maniacs, but deep down, he's just as crazy as them all, it's a heart warming show that I still tune into when it's on More 4.moreless

      Father Ted is one of my favourite comedy progs around. ted, dougle, jack and mrs doyle are great charcters and will have you in stiches. the fact that they are priests and it basically takes the piss out of the catholic church is funny in itself. The best episodes have got to be the eurovision song contest one and kicking bishop brennen up the arse. The bit with ted and dougal in their music video for their song for eurovision with the horse cracks me up every time. Mrs doyle and her classic line 'would u like a cup of tea father, ah go on go on go on go on' never gets old, and dougals stupidness makes me laugh so much. Father Ted is great but pity they didnt make more series of it.moreless
