Go On, Go On, Go On, Go On.


The Vision Network, in all its wholesome wisdom, has started showing Father Ted.

I wonder if they just knew that the protagonist is an Irish Catholic priest and left it at that. "No need to delve any further into that storyline," says they, "after all, 'tis a lovely tale of a priest and his parishoners."

In the one episode I just watched, it was about a Bishop with a love child in California, Father Ted and his poor idiot sidekick Father Dougal protesting a filthy film and subsequantly making it a blockbuster, a demented old priest using "feck" liberally, and a old lady describing the shape of her husband's "lad".

Not quite The Waltons (which is also a Vision offering).
