Movie Reviews

"Oh no, not toilet duck again."
B-MAN | Earth, occasionally. Until I get bored. | 01/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ready to go to "Funland" where you can do some "freak pointing" and see the "spider-baby"? Want to hear Father Stone, once again say - "No, I'm fine thanks"? How about help the Fathers protest a french film and say "Down with this sort of thing" Well, I say "Up with this sort of thing" to the release of Father Ted on DVD! Within the first few moments of the first Father Ted episode I saw on BBC, I knew I would probably be adding it to my collection. It belongs next to other essential BBC comedies like Monty Python, Black Adder, Fawlty Towers, and The Young Ones!This is what you get on Father Ted - Complete Series 1 DVD:
1. Good Luck Father Ted
2. Entertaining Father Stone
3. The Passion of St. Tibulus
4. Competition Time
5. And God Created Woman
6. Grant Unto Him Eternal RestMenu options: Play in order, Select an episode, Scene selection, and Cast and Crew Bios. There are really no special features besides the informative bios, but having Father Ted at the push of a button on DVD is special enough for me. God Bless Father Ted! Look out for Season 2 available in March 2002!"
Great series, too bad about the DVD

"Father Ted is one of the funniest series ever seen on British TV. What an original and hillarious concept! The characters and casting are perfect. Episode 1 sets the scene perfectly - you will laugh your head off in every single of the 6 episodes on this DVD.And now for the negative side - The DVD contains nothing more than the 6 episodes that make up series 1. There is no commentary, no "behind the scenes", no interviews... As if that wasn't enough, there are no subtitles! I live in Greece, and most of my friends have limited knowledge of English and usually have to rely on subtitles to understand everything; as a result, I have a hard time sharing this excellent comedy with them. In addition, the menus are crude and I can only wonder why they did such a poor job on the authoring aspect of this DVD.Despite the poor authoring, anybody who loves Father Ted (i.e. everyone who has seen it) will definitely want a copy for their DVD collection. A must-have!"
Buy this. Oh, go on. Go on, go on, go on, go on.......GO ON!

"Anyone who has seen this will recognise the words of Mrs Doyle! This is really very funny. If you like your comedy a bit strange, you'll love this. The series is set on Craggt Island, somewhere of the coast of Ireland. In a house on the island live 3 priests the catholic church wishes to forget. Father Ted would like to think he is hip and trendy, but fails miserably to impress anyone. With Father Dougal, it is a mystery how he ever became a priest because he is so gormless. Finally, Father Jack is a foul-mouthed drunk, who spends most of his life in a drunken stupor in his armchair. This unlikely three some get into all sorts of scrapes, and are aided whenever they need a cup of tea by their insane housekeeper, Mrs Doyle. The laughs are non stop, and the off the wall humour makes you want to watch it again and again."
A Great TV Series Finally on DVD

"Positively one of the greatest TV series that I have ever seen. It has a lot of funny moments based around a Catholic priest (Father Ted)in a town on a small island of the coast of Ireland. There are many unexpected twists and turns that are always there for comic relief. Father Ted, Father Doogle, and Father Jack all unknowingly make a mockery of the Church in their attempt to do good. Doogle is undoubtedly the funniest of the bunch, as he is not too bright and you are never quite sure what he is going to say. This is a definite must, especially since the man playing the part of Father Ted died not too long ago, and you might not get another chance to see this great TV series."
