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.
