Irish "Exposure"....
Bobb Robinson | Jacksonville, FL, USA | 11/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic show which my mother hooked me on a few years ago. If you've never caught an episode on PBS, now is your chance. Unlike glitzy American prime-time soap operas, these characters have a great deal of depth and the status quo can change, dramatically, at any time. If you liked the quirky characters and situations of "Northern Exposure", you will love this show!"
Ballykissangel Series 1-3 = Human Relationships
A. Robinson | Middlesex, England | 02/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I wish they would release Series 3 too. Ballykissangel can be broken down into three parts: Assumpta and Father Peter era (Series 1-3), Father Aidan era (Series 4 and 5) and the aussie priest era (Series 6) Now, the only ones in my opinion worth watching is the first three series and they are absolutely brilliant. They do not mock the Catholic religion but focuses on human relationships (especially in a small village)and interaction between the characters especially when an event rocks the boat e.g. loss of Niamh's baby. The audience see bonds of friendship strengthen and in most cases the villagers are one big family. Now the books A new arrival and A sense of place are series one and two respectively and are worth buying too. The only thing that spoils it for me is the fact Kieran Prendville did not write a sequel to these two books and that the BBC have not released Series 3 on DVD."
Amazingly true to life
Bruce J. Schryver | San Diego, CA | 11/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After several trips to the Vale of Avoca, it's easy to see how one could easily fall into line with the characters of Ballykissangel. From wily Brian Quiqley to quizzical Father Clifford and the highly changeable Niamh. The series truly portrays the idyllic countryside and the lifestyle that is so relaxed. Those who love Ireland and the Irish people will love Ballykissangel as they see the small town through the eyes of the local citizenry. Driving through the countryside, you can see images of Donal and Liam at almost every turn in the road, hoping they are not carring an electronic confessional!

For those who have been waiting, Series 3 will be available in March 2005, so enjoy Series 1 and 2 and be ready for more Irish laughter and fun in the new year. We'll be in Ireland when it makes it debut and we'll hoist a pint in Fitzgerald's in celebration!"
Brilliant DVD combo
Marc Neilson | Arlington, VA United States | 05/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The wonderful thing about this DVD combo is that we BallyK fans are rewarded with neat little features such as a tour of Avoca (BallyK) and a really well made documentary on the success of the series featuring interviews with all of the past and more recent cast. If you love the series like I do, it's just wonderful to have series one and two available at any time and to be able to flip through to inspiring scenes or particularly touching moments.
I just wish they would release the other series...I actually love the show all the way to series 6 so let's keep our fingers crossed...
