I cannot believe how negative most of the other comments are about this programme. Dare I say I think Father Ted is slightly overrated,I like it but it does rely on clichés about Ireland and the Catholic Church. On the other hand Hippies had mean roaring with laughter. The people in this programme show how stupid some of the 1960s people could be. I love the protest against Sandpaper. I love the way they follow the American superstar hippie blindly when he talks rubbish. The Bob Helmets episode is about the funniest thing I have seen in years. As for the cast,great performances,Sally Philips is great and I have not seen her in anything as good as this since. Would love to see the DVD in the shops. I must be in a minority because the critics were unkind to this show and it only got one series. Perhaps I like it because I remember the end of the lippy era and how daft it could be.
