"It's not Father Ted", "It's not Father Ted". Yes it's not Father Ted. It is however a decent sitcom that's reasonably removed from the tedious trash constantly being churned out (Mrs Browns Boys etc..). It does build characters well through the 3 episodes. By the third episode I found myself disappointed that there was no more and really hope it get's a full series commissioned. I'll accept there are some very lazy Irish family stereotypes used as a basis for SOME of the humour but that's such an obvious criticism. The whole thing is so loosely based on reality that it doesn't really stack up. If you suspend reality then it's just funny in a daft sort of way.
