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

Father Ted: Kicking Bishop Brennan Up The Arse (1998) (TV Episode) has Bishop Brennan (Jim Norton) returning later in the episode to Craggy Island, when he realises to his fury, that Father Ted (Dermot Morgan) did kick him up the arse. As part of his confrontation he says, "Try to deny it and I will have you fed, to the dogs!" Norton starred in Straw Dogs (1971). See more »

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 »
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.
