Father Ted: Season 3


The third and final season of the fucking legendary British/Irish television show, Father Ted.
A testament to the comedic genius of Dermot Morgan and crew.

Father Ted is back on Craggy Island and the glorious misadventures of the three priests
(Ted, Dougal, Jack) continue. From eyeglass stealing magpies, banana cake jumpers,
womanizing milkmen and burping sheep.
There is no end to the hilarity.

Here are some episode highlights :)

*Churpy Burpy Cheap Sheep (Episode 19)
With the annual King of the Sheep competition only days away. A prized sheep,
Chris is haunted by tales of a sheep eating beast roaming the moors.
His fear in turn causes a rather unfortunate belching problem, and it is up to Father Ted
and Father Dougal to nurse him back to health, insuring his win.

*The Mainland (Episode 21)
Ted and company venture to the mainland. So Father Ted can pick up his gambling winnings.
The gang, however is unprepared for the calamitous events that await them.

*Are You There, Father Ted? (Episode 18)
Oblivious to the growing population of Chinese people on Craggy Island. Father Ted is
taken for a racist after a harmless prank is witnessed. Political incorrectness ensues.

*Speed 3 (Episode 20)
A womanizing milkman, Pat Mustard. Sets his sights on the Ted, Dougal
& Jack's housekeeper, Ms. Doyle. Leading Ted to suspect that he alone is responsible
for the increase in hairy babies being born on the island. After Ted outs him to his employer.
He is fired and Dougal is taken on as his replacement. This obviously enrages Pat Mustard
and he rigs a bomb to the milk float, that is set to go off if Dougal's speed limit goes below 3 mph.

*Kicking Bishop Brennan Up The Arse (Episode 23)
After losing a bet to Father Dick Burn. Ted's punishment is to kick the notoriously nasty, Bishop Brennan up the ass. In addition to taking a photo of said event, for evidence that he completed his punishment.


I love this show so much! Everything about it, the jokes, the setting, and most importantly
the gloriously bent characters that inhabit this alternate world. I could happily exist in.
I will be reviewing the series from end to beginning, since the 3rd season was the most expensive to purchase. It's weird...I know.

Availability: The individual seasons of the show are currently out of print, but
are still available from Amazon and Ebay.
Select full episodes are available to watch for free on

Price: By itself the season is available from 13-40$ in various conditions.
And as a collective with seasons 1 & 2 it's available from 47+

So go check it out! Ya dirty feckers!
