Father Dougal:Ah, they've got this great place, Ted where you can put people who don't want to go shopping. They can just stay there and have a laugh.
Father Ted:Really? Never heard of that. Were there other people there?
Father Dougal:Ah, loads of people, Ted. He'll be fine.

By God, it is hilarious!, 14 January 2004
Author: Lone_Shark

With reference to previous comments, nobody in the Catholic Church (including me) has a problem with this show. It's absolutely hilarious, as will be evident to almost any viewer (assuming you have a decent sense of humour). In 5 words: Surrealist irreverent Irish priest comedy.
