Overview

Housing the entire second series/season of Father Ted, this two-DVD collection compiles ten episodes of one of the funniest sitcoms of all time. Off the bat, the menus are stellar. Photos of Father Ted Crilly, Father Jack Hackett, Father Dougal McGuire, and Mrs. Doyle add a hilarious touch to the DVD's menus. The episodes themselves aren't as dynamic as in their television broadcasts, with the audio coming across just a bit tinny and the video presentation showing some compression or snow, but it's a more than acceptable package, as its flaws are easily glossed over once the comedy ensues. The main menus give three options: "Play in Order," "Select an Episode," and "Special Features." On the "Select an Episode" menus, each episode is broken into six chapters with chapter titles and still images, which makes it very easy to find favorite scenes. The bonus feature on disc one is a hilarious commentary by co-writer Graham Linehan, who leaves few stones unturned in examining the show. Disc two houses a photo gallery and a cast and crew biographies section. The photo gallery includes stills from the episodes of the second series, all of them with humorous, informative captions by the show's writers. The cast biographies cover the four primary actors and their characters. For example, one learns that Dougal "is one of God's special creatures." Bios are also available for the writers. All in all, it's an essential collection for Father Ted fans.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Television's unholy trinity returns, hell-bent on remaining hysterically clerical in the second series of irreverent, award-winning situation comedy from the U.K. Off the Irish coast, on windswept and isolated Craggy Island, Father Ted Crilly is charged with the unenviable task of constantly keeping his wayward colleagues out of trouble. As the title character, Dermot Morgan whose sudden death in 1998 cut the series short is a classic sitcom Job, forever balancing the bumblings of dim-witted Father Dougal McGuire Ardal O'Hanlon and the alcoholic Father Jack Hackett Frank Kelly. Unfortunately, fate is not on Father Ted's side, and he spends most of his time neglecting his parishioners as he attempts to remove himself and his colleagues from increasingly bizarre situations. The Series 2 collection features all ten episodes from Father Ted's second season 1996:
  • "Hell" -- It's July and time for the Fathers' annual holiday. With interesting activities like boiling water and a day trip to "Saint Kevin's Stump," the stage is set for an incredibly exciting two weeks.
  • "Think Fast, Father Ted" -- Ted convinces Bishop Brennan Jim Norton to give the parish a new car, which he plans to raffle off to raise funds for repairing the Parish House roof. But a bit of amateur bodywork leads to ruin.
  • "Tentacles of Doom" -- The Holy Stone of Clonrichert is about to be upgraded to a class II relic, and Ted is eager for Fathers Dougal and Jack to be on their best behavior. But a crisis of faith, a faulty toilet, and an overbearing bishop ensure that that can't possibly happen.
  • "The Old Grey Whistle Theft" -- Following an argument with Ted, an officious picnic area supervisor realizes that his shiny silver whistle has disappeared. As hysteria grows over the breakdown of law and order, Sergeant Hodgins John Olohan suspects a priest is responsible.
  • "Song for Europe" -- Driven on by his rivalry with Father Dick Byrne, Ted is determined to win the 1996 Eurosong Contest. To this end, he and Dougal "borrow" the music of an old Eurosong contender and enter it as their own.
  • "The Plague" -- Father Dougal is very excited about his new pet rabbit, but the bishop's bunny phobia causes a major crisis.
  • "Rock-A-Hula Ted" -- An aggressive protest singer arrives on the island just as Ted is getting ready to judge the annual Lovely Girls Competition. Will the clash between militant feminism and local tradition lead to more trouble for Ted?
  • "Cigarettes and Alcohol and Rollerblading" -- With Easter fast approaching, Father Dick Byrne Maurice O'Donoghue suggests that Craggy Island's priests give up their vices for Lent. When temptation beckons, the fathers are forced to call on Sister Assumpta Dervla Kirwan of Ballykissangel.
  • "New Jack City" -- One glance at Father Jack's incredibly hairy hands, and Doctor Sinnot sends him off to St. Clabberts Old Priests' Home for immediate treatment. But Jack's replacement is even less pleasant than the old man himself.
  • "Flight into Terror" -- A plane full of priests find themselves in mortal danger when Dougal does something really, really stupid in the cockpit. With only a cup of fuel left, can Ted save the day?
