  Why no Widescreen????

Such a shame, along side Black adder, this is my favorite comedy. So to have the complete set, with extras is awesome. BUT.... Why do I have 5" either side of my screen in black. It does not happen when repeated on More4 etc???? Disappointing!!!

  The best cure in the world for EVERYTHING!!

Just viewing a couple episodes of Father Ted will get you completely addicted, to what is possibly the most briliant - original - comedy sitcom type thing, in the whole world ever. . . (apart from Fawlty Towers of course). This box set is a pinnacle of comedy brilliance. Buy it now, or forever be damned to be miserable.

  Absolutely brilliant!

This has got to be the funniest comedy of all time. 'Fecking' hilarious! It's simplicity is addictive watching.
Rest in Peace Dermot Morgan and thank you for bringing us Father Ted.

This is simply one of the best sitcoms ever to have graced UK television. Absolutely as daft as a brush, its likeability factor is so high because it is so simple in script. The laughs are predictable, the characters so lovable and each episode contains so much silliness that it it is a treat to watch. The mix of the 3 Priests on Craggy Island is superb, and watching their counterparts in various other locations is always so funny. Ted Crilly has his work cut out for him being with the loud & abusive alcoholic Jack, and the simple yet charmingly innocent Dougal. Throw in Mrs Doyle for all housekeeping duties especially the tea making, and I just think it is so charming and keeps you laughing long after the episode has finished.

Season 3 was always going to be the last one, but the very sad and untimely death of Dermot Morgan really has left a huge hole in the UK comedy scene, who else could kick Bishop Brennan up the ar** with such panache (and produce the best 10 by 10 canvas I have ever seen). Ted dancing to Shaft still gives me stitches especially when suicidal Priest Kevin also cheers up with the music in his ears. Also, the Priests in the lingerie department- brilliant! The best thing about the whole series is that the 3 amigos hardly do any Priest work- most of the time Ted is thinking of ways to see off his nemesis Father Dick Byrne.

You must buy this. The price is awesome because for sure you will watch this over and over again.

And as the lovely Mrs Doyle would say.."go on, go on, go on, go on, go on." BUY IT! Absolute genius stuff.

  Seriously funny.

This is, without a doubt, one of my top Sitcoms ever.

The (mis) adventures of this dysfunctional trio of priests, and their tea-making addict housekeeper, had me in stitches everytime.

Bump in the fearsome Bishop Brennan, and things always end in a disaster. Being a sit-com related to religion, there are the usual puns and innuendos that one will either feel comfortable with, or be needled, as they strike very close to the heart of the matter.

Naturally it is with a light hearted view that this show must be viewed. To me, a practicing Roman Catholic, it is as true as could be.

Dermott Morgans untimely death however was a blow, as I am sure the trio would have returned for another series.

Well recommended.

  Very small. Far away!

Absolutely LOVE this Show. But that was not always the case.
When it first aired, and after catching bits of it, I just didn't get it and thought it was stupid.
But after a friend let me borrow a Video with 4 Full episodes, it all changed. I was engrossed in the mad lives if Father Ted, Father Dougal, Father Jack and Mrs Doyle.
The show is really well written, and VERY FUNNY once you get into it. I've watched most of the episodes several times, and they deliver every single time.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
