Among the five episodes collected here are two of Father Ted’s finest half-hours,
“Rock-A-Hula Ted” was one of the few episodes in which the writers of the show abandoned any concern for their largely British audience and stacked the script with explicitly Irish references : Craggy Island’s “Lovely Girls” festival is a burlesque of the all-too-genuine “Rose Of Tralee” pageant, and fire-breathing pop singer Niamh Connolly–played with aplomb by Clare Grogan–an obvious enough Sinead O’Connor manqué,

“New Jack City”, meanwhile is the classic episode in which the choleric Father Jack is finally despatched to an old folks’ loony bin only to be replaced by the mesmerisingly appalling ragga-fixated chain-smoker Father Fintan Stack,
As one of the high points of the Father Ted series this episode is also one of the high points of television comedy,
There isn’t much wrong with the other three episodes here, either,

On the DVD : an interactive menu allows the selection of individual episodes, and segments within those episodes,
The only extra feature is the option of watching the episodes with the dialogue replaced with a commentary by co-writer Graham Linehan and actor Ardal O’Hanlon, who plays Father Dougal Maguire,
Occasionally interesting and revealing though this is, it gets rapidly wearing in this form, and would have worked much better if transcribed in an accompanying booklet,
The disc is presented in 4 : 3 aspect ratio with English subtitles available,
