Format: DVD
I can review the show itself in five words; it's the best comedy of all time.
This review is for those wondering whether or not to buy this so-called definitive edition, and what sets it apart from previous releases.

Well, for a start, it's bigger. It comes in one of those bookish-type DVD boxes, which has turnable 'pages' for each disc, with five in total. Series 1 takes up a disc while 2 and 3 are on two each. The real reason for the reissue of this series is the inclusion of the extra features (as well as groovy new artwork).

The set includes BBC's Ted episode of Comedy Connections, featuring all the key players apart from of course Dermot Morgan. The half-hour show serves as a great making-of supplement and deals with how the show came about, how it was initially disliked (!) and the legacy it left. Very concise and insightful, with no fluff. Also included are Ted and Dougal's in-character appearances for Comic Relief, worth watching to see them creasing up with the giggles once or twice. A two part, 40-minute interview with the creators is also very insightful, and details much of how the show was influenced, and influential, featuring some very rare footage of them performing years before the fame of Father Ted.

The only let-down of the extras is the footage of Ireland's annual "Ted-Fest", which seems to me very much like an event where people go to get drunk and shout catchphrases rather than celebrate how great the show was. All the superfluous features (sound effects, clip segments) from the original DVDs are carried over too.

In summary, I think this is the treatment Father Ted has always deserved, and the show is well worth the price of an upgrade as the extras are fantastically informative (and often hilarious) without crossing that line into having too much. I would strongly recommend buying it, whether you have the older DVDs or not (you don't? Shame).

Fantastic characters and fantastic writing come together to create a hilarious and timeless comedy.

Feck! who would think that this is 15 years old, and to be honest who would think that anyone over 15 years of age would be in fits of laughter at the tought of a group of priests getting lost in "Ireland's largest lingerie section", but I was.

I missed Father Ted first time around on the TV so this collection has allowed me to catch up on missed episodes, and there's not a poor one among them.

An added bonus is that this collection includes the Christmas Special, although this isn't clear from the blurb and as a result I bought that as well!

I bought this earlier in the year so that I had something to watch while living in France...and it's easily the funniest comedy I've ever seen! It's difficult to pick my favourite episode, as they're all sheer genius...although the milkman one is definitely up there! The extras are reasonably good, especially the greatest moments of each character (including the video for "My Lovely Horse"), and the Comic Relief part is rather funny as well. Quote of the whole thing has to go to Father Jack..."Don't tell me I'm still on that feckin' island!"...well thank goodness you are, it wouldn't have been the same without him!

Format: DVD
When it first aired, I passed this series over: I can distinctly remember the first time I saw the Coronation Street style theme tune soap opera opening and a seeing a clip showing a dreary, wet & windy outdoor scene, with some comedy priests (it was the Craggy Island funfair in the first episode) and thinking that it wasn't worth watching. Indeed Linehan himself says, in the commentary that the premise - a sitcome based on a bunch of priests in an out of the way Irish island - would have put him off too.

However, the series, with it's staid Terry and June style sitcom trappings and anarchic, surrealist Young Ones slapstick came to be a defining moment in British (OK - Irish!) comedy. It's aged very well despite the fifteen years since it first aired and a period of almost back-to-back repeats on Dave. There's something timeless about the setting, the characters and the situations that suggest that it will be as funny in another 15 years as it was in '95.

Witness Ted's frustrated attempts to achieve fame and fortune ("that money was resting in my account!"), Dougal's wide eyed idiocy and Jack's drunken, crusty faced, milky eyed pugnacity. Consider Mrs Doyle's tea and sandwich obsession and surely Bishop Len Brennan would have been pope by now if he hadn't been held back by "the cast of Police Academy". None of it sounds particularly promising, but it works perfectly.

This 5 disc box set contains all 25 episodes of the three series of and is a must have for any decent comedy collection. The extras don't add up to much - a couple of interviews with the writers and some niff naffy bits to fill out the schedule, but never mind that.

Format: DVD
Father Ted is one of the great comedies of the last 20 years. Why? There are a number of reasons for this. The key reason is the underlying truth of the characthers - those of us who are Irish simply know that they are "real" - Mrs Doyle: "Go on have a cup of tea?" with her insistent hospitality, the warring couple, who keep up appearances in front of the priests and the clueless priests, All this is true social comment on Irish culture where the underlying lunacy or madness in Irish culture is never far from the surface. An interesting issue is to what extent the Celtic Tiger has affected this culture -nothing stands still and there is bound to have been some change since the 90s, particularly with the continuing decline of the Church. We will have to wait and see for the next great comedy on Irish culture - when will that be?
