Father Ted: The Holy Trinity 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Fans have said that 'Father Ted' is like taking the Monty Python troupe and making them priests. This is a fair opinion. 'Father Ted' is anarchic surrealism, satire, and just plain hilarious fun. The DVD set is well-rounded with clear picture, enjoyable and interesting commentaries, and fun extras. The actors and the writers all worked hard to make this a classic, and it shows in the delightful performances. Some may worry that the Irish accent is too strong for them, but that's not the case with the actors on 'Father Ted.' Highly recommended- You have to see the antics of fame and fortune-hungry Fr. Ted, adorably dim Fr. Dougal, drunken and mischevious Fr. Jack, and the scarily devoted Mrs. Doyle! However, this is not for those who are very easily offended, as there is 'bad' language, a few jabs at the Catholic Church, and 'Drink!'

Im a BBC fan and this show is funny and is the best comedy of all time.

If you are new to British Comedy or if you fail to laugh at some of the more dry wit our friends across the ocean tend to use in their comic works - then take counsel with Father Ted! The Father Ted series has the distinct british 'flavour' with a good dose of universal humor. A must for anyone new to BritCom. I have seen several British Comedy series and while I enjoy 'Black Adder', 'Girls On Top', 'Are you Being Served?', 'Faulty Towers' and many others - Father Ted is definately top of the list!!! I have even found my friends who regard all british comedy as dull (unfair I agree) but they all have loved Father Ted..... See for yourself...

Father Ted is to the Irish as The Simpsons is to Americans and Canadians. It is very popular there, and a cult classic in the West. If you like the Black Adder, you'll love Father Ted. However, be careful when you call this a British comedy. It takes place in the West Coast of Ireland with Irish characters. Thus, it is an Irish Comedy.
