Father Ted

I'm a Christian yet I think that Father Ted is one of the best comedy shows ever made. I think it's light hearted fun. Some Christians don't think we should watch it. Any opinions?

I love Father Ted - much better than Vicar of Dibley. More like the vintage "All Gas and Gaters".

Not a Father Ted fan here as I never did find it funny yet I do love Dibley. Just goes to show that we are all different yet we are still made in His image.

Did anyone watch "Rev"? We watched the first few episodes but coming from a happy clappy non denominational background I couldn't really relate to it.

Liam Neeson as Jesus was a master-stroke.

I didn't see all of the Rev series but the ones I did see had a lot of truth about them as well as a lot of clever comedy. I come from and Anglican background and see a great deal of his ministry dilemmas in the CofE leadership and many do relate to his feelings and actions.

I'm not an Anglican but really loved Rev as it seemed to show real life dilemmas in the church. Hope we get another series.

Have you seen this?

There's a new book due for release this month that looks at this very subject!




More TV Vicar?: Christians on the Telly: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
"It's not uncommon for Christians to feel poorly represented by fictional characters on TV. Dot Cotton, Father Ted and Rowan Atkinson's portrayal of the Archbishop of Canterbury for Comic Relief are controversial examples, while there was a division of opinion among Christians over sitcom Rev.'s portrayal of ministry and faith. More TV Vicar? gets under the dog collar of the claim that Christians are misrepresented. Priest and blogger Bryony Taylor assesses many well-known characters - including Dot Cotton, Father Ted, Rev.'s Adam Smallbone, The Vicar of Dibley's Geraldine Granger and Father Brown - and asks what are the deeper messages behind each portrayal and our response to each. The book includes original interviews with Christian comedy writers Paul Kerensa (Miranda, Not Going Out) and James Cary (Bluestone 42) and an in-depth analysis of the social media reaction to the final episode of Rev."
