I cant think of a Comedy Series that is as consistently good as Father Ted apart from Fawlty Towers. Father Ted really is that good. The main character is Ted Crilly. He is a priest that has been 'exiled' to craggy island for fiddling of money from a charity ("It was just resting in my account!!") He lives with slow witted Father Dougal McGuire (god knows how he became a priest) Father Jack Hackett (also exiled- for his additction to drink, women and swearing) and their ever annoying housekeeper Mrs Doyle (you never hear her first name only if you want a cup of tea) The stories revolve around Ted and Dougal and their existence on the island. Ted is sexually frustrated and intellectually frustrated and he will do anything to get off the island. As time goes by the relationship between Ted and Dougal becomes more like a brother and older brother relationship and there are lots of fantastic episodes where you can just feel Teds pain as he tries to come to terms with the madness surrounding him. Great Stuff
