Product Description

Voted Channel 4's greatest comedy show by viewers.

The four-time BAFTA award-winning Father Ted tells the hilarious tale of three Irish priests and their housekeeper. Life is hard for Ted (Dermot Morgan). Exiled to the remote Craggy Island (for reasons which never quite become clear but may have something to do with missing Church funds), he is forced to share a house with three of the most difficult people in Ireland...

First there's Father Jack (Frank Kelly), who has not been sober since 1936 and has a vocabulary which extends to three words--only two of them printable. Then there's Father Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlan): young, innocent and almost inconceivably stupid. And finally, Mrs Doyle (Pauline McLynn) the overly-attentive housekeeper who has one sole purpose in life--to supply the priests with cups of tea, usually against their will. Will the four of them ever be able to live in faithful harmony?

This 5-disc complete boxset has been designed by renowned cartoonist and illustrator Tony Millionaire and includes collectible art cards of his drawings. Contains all episodes from all three series plus loads of extras, including:

• Commentary by Graham Linehan & Arthur Mathews for series 1 & 2 (recorded 2012)
• Cast & writers commentaries on all episodes
• Small, Far Away - The World of Father Ted
Father Ted wins Channel 4's 30 Greatest Comedy Show
• Interview with writers
• Tedfest 2007: A Very Ted Weekend
• Comedy Connections
• Comic Relief with Ted and Dougal
• Tedfest 2007: Two tribes go to war

From Amazon.co.uk

Father Ted is one of those rare sitcoms that defies categorisation--it owes as much to Flann O'Brien and Samuel Beckett as it does to Monty Python--and its blend of satire, character comedy and anarchic surrealism has made it a cult favourite around the world. Exiled to remote Craggy Island, Father Ted shares a house with the breathtakingly stupid Father Dougal Maguire and the constantly inebriated Father Jack, who has a small vocabulary and a taste for furniture polish. Their housekeeper, Mrs Doyle, takes care of them with a never-ending supply of tea and sandwiches: "Go on now, Father, won't you try one? They're diagonal." Together they fight boredom by dressing up as Elvis, startling ducks at the fair and provoking nuns. This set compiles the entire three-year series. --Simon Leake --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This boxed set comprise 4 DVDs covering series 1 (6 episodes), 2-prt 1 (5 episodes + A Christmassy Ted special), 2-prt 2 (5 episodes) and 3 (8 episodes), including specials and bonus material; over 10 hours total playing time and a garranteed future comedy classic.

The series revolves around the adventures of three eccentric Catholic priests and a housekeeper on a remote, God-forsaken, rocky island located off the western coast Ireland called Craggy Island.

Father Ted Crilly, Father Dougal McGuire and Father Jack Hackett are looked after by Mrs Doyle, the hardworking lynchpin and housekeeper of the Parochial House where the quartet live.

Father Ted dreams of a parish in Las Vegas; Father Dougal has trouble distinguishing dreams from reality; Father Jack is a perpetual drunk and leacher, and Mrs Doyle has a fixation for tea-making and DIY.

Their unbelievable and hilarious exploits bring them into contact with the other crazy inhabitants of the island and often into frequent conflict with their Bishop who would prefer to see them all go to Hell, if only he could arrange it.

Father Ted takes an irreverent but very funny look at religion in the much the same way as 'All Gas and Gaitors' and 'Oh Brother' did several decades before.

A must-have DVD set for any serious collector of comedy.

Format: DVD
In many ways 'Father Ted' is THE quintessential sitcom, and has rightfully earned its place alongside such classics as 'Fawlty Towers', 'Only Fools and Horses', 'Blackadder' and 'The Office'.

Such is the genius of 'Father Ted' that nowadays one barely even needs to acknowledge how good it is, let alone justify it, but for those who have never watched it ... you really don't know what you're missing!!

As riotous as 'Fawlty Towers' and as witty as 'Friends' and 'Frasier', as quirky as 'Phoenix Nights' and as brilliantly insightful as both 'The Office' and 'Peep Show', this gem of a comedy quite literally has it all: a cast of wonderfully colourful characters, an abundance of quotable lines and catchphrases, and, underpinning it all, a perfectly crafted script. Mere comparisons do not, however, do it justice, and with its unique, eccentric and almost cartoon-like humour, this timeless and endearing classic really is in a league of its own - a true one-off.

'Father Ted' is also broad in its appeal without compromising on quality and content - rude but not crude, cheekily satirical but not political - and as such it will be loved by young and old alike, and by people of all backgrounds and persuasions. I also wouldn't be at all surprised if the Catholic Church in Ireland secretly love it!

And as one would hope from the producers of such a towering comedic achievement, this fantastic box set is quite a fitting tribute. Not only does it boast a whole host of special features, including the wonderful documentary 'Small, Far Away ..', but the artwork, on both the box/case itself and the DVD on-screen menus, captures quite nicely the show's unique quirkiness.

Oh, and for those who may be wondering, yes it does include the Christmas special 'A Christmassy Ted'.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This definitely has to be one of the best sit coms of all time. Featuring the long-suffering Father Ted, the hapless Father Dougal Maguire, Father Jack Hacket, who likes the odd drink and good old housekeeper Mrs Doyle, who seems to do everything from tea making to roof repairs.
Together they all live in the parochial house on the godforsaken island of Craggy Island, a place populated by many eccentrics where the only place of interest is 'The Holy Stone of Clonrichert' basically a stone on a pedestal.
The box set contains 4 disks
Disk 1: The 6 episode from series 1
Disk 2: 5 episodes from series 2 and 'A Christmassy Ted'
Disk 3: Contains the remaining 5 episodes of series 2
Disk 4: All 8 episodes from series 3.
Each episode is a mixture of side splitting comedy and slapstick humour following the clergy through various improbable and farcical situations. They are kept in check by the hard line Bishop Len Brennan, and occasionally come into competition with the residence of the Rugged Island parochial house Father Dick Burn et al.
The humour is light hearted, timeless, original, classic and just pure brilliance, poking fun at irish rural life, priests, the Catholic church and Catholicism in general.
This was a hugely successful series and I think the 3rd series is the best of the lot. This is definitely a box set worth owning, brilliant!!!

Here's some information you might like to have before deciding which 'Father Ted' videos to buy. This video contains the following three episodes:
1) Good Luck, Father Ted (Funland's at Craggy Island, which is also the episode where Dougal claims that the funfair has got a spider-baby, which is a spider with the mind of a baby.)
2) Entertaining Father Stone (Ted, Dougal and Jack are visited by the most boring priest in the world. This episode contains a hilarous conversation between Dougal and Jack while they are waiting for someone in a hospital to get well.)
3) The Passion of St. Tibulus (Bishop Len Brennan's first appearance. He orders the three priests (though Jack wants to stay home and drink) to go and protest against a blasphemous film that runs in the local cinema. Things don't go as planned. Surprise there!)
There you have it! No one can deny the incredible fun of 'Father Ted', and as all fans I was saddened by the death of Dermot Morgan a couple of years ago after the third season was finished.
