Storyline

Accident-prone Father Ted Crilly, along with stupid young Father Dougal and cantankerous, drunken retired priest Father Jack, lives on Craggy Island, being looked after by house-keeper Mrs Doyle. Ted hears a TV crew is coming to interview priests with remote parishes but does not want the others involved so pretends he is the island's sole priest, sending Dougal and Jack to the funfair. With the interview about to start Ted finds himself at the fair and whisked into the air on one of its rides, leaving Dougal, whom the interviewer assumes to be Ted, to spout a load of rubbish into the microphone.

The beginning of a masterpiece
1 November 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

As soon as you watch this episode you'll be hooked.

Father Ted is the funniest comedy of all time in my opinion, maybe it's because I'm Irish, or maybe it just is.

You are introduced to the main characters instantly you're first, simplest impressions of their very different personalities and traits will lead you to watch the entire 25 episodes.

In 'Funland' Ted is appearing in a TV interview but as usual things go upside down in hilarious circumstances. It will have you holding your stomachs and quoting Dougals' representations of Spider babies for years to come...

'Funland' sets a fairly high benchmark as the beginning of a series and you'll wonder how Linehan can surpass this, but he does...
