Is it a sitcom? Is it a serious documentary about the Catholic priesthood? No, it’s Father Ted,
Right-thinking people everywhere cheered in the 1980s as The Young Ones beat the sitcom format senseless, yet the once twee genre returned reinvigorated in the 90s, first as Men Behaving Badly (1991-98), then the affably surreal Father Ted,
Ted’s the normal one, as evidenced by his moving Song for Europe entry, “My Lovely Horse”–a modern classic if ever there wasn’t one,
In total there are five cassock-splittingly funny episodes of C4’s finest comedy on The Very Best of Father Ted,
Gasp as “poor idiot boy” Father Dougal becomes a rollerblading fiend in “Cigarettes And Alcohol And Rollerblading”; be amazed as super Ted saves Craggy Island from an deadly milk-float in the stunning blockbuster sequel “Speed 3” (well, it’s faster and more fun than Speed 2); fall off the window-sill as devoted housekeeper Mrs Doyle utters the line that’s almost Shakespearean in its sublimity, “Cup of tea, Father?”,
Meanwhile, Father Jack doesn’t need an excuse to hit the bottle (or smash one over someone’s head) in any episode,
Not saying Mass has probably never been so much fun,
–Gary S,
