Have mercy on poor Father Ted Crilly. He has so much to contend with when it comes to dealing with the folks of Craggy Island, Ireland. There's Father Dougal McGuire, who is as dimwitted as they come; and then there is Father Jack Hackett who lives for the simple pleasures of life (sleeping, drinking, and swearing). Ted tries to bring stability to his congregation as well as the surreal townspeople of Craggy Island. Written by

The sixth episode of the second season begins with the usual credits, but instead of Father Ted, the title reads: Father Ben. It then cuts to Dougal sitting in front of the TV, watching Father Ben. Ted comes in and makes fun of the character of Father Ben, saying he has no self-awareness at all. It then cuts to the normal credits. See more »
I can only say that the TV will never be the same without Father Ted. I know it ended so long ago, but I have only just encountered this site. It had humour that only Dermot Morgan (Father Ted), RIP, could only have imagined. I remember seeing his work on the Late Late Show in Ireland as a kid growing up there. But not realising then what I know now is that he was a thoroughbred genius. Sadly to say we will never see the likes of him again. The comedy is class and it is only a shame that somebody someday will make a "remake" of it and it will be not a scratch on the original. Oh well. But there is still a lot more to come from the Emerald Isle, check out D'Unbelievables, they were in Father Ted, one of them wore the "I SHOT JR" T-Shirt and the other was the cinema owner and in another episode the Eurovision song contest compere.
