After the sad passing of father jack - we want to show our 2 youngest children (15 & 14) an episode of Father Ted so they can understand why when one of their parents says 'drink' enquiring if the other wants a brew we say 'drink girls feck arse'

I love the one when they get trapped in the lingerie store. I also love the one with Dougal where Ted is explaining the concept of 'near.....far away'

What do you think is the best episode?

I love the mainland one, I could watch it over and over. I also love the caravan, Graham Norton is brilliant as annoying Father Noel.

Ah yes!!! Love the ones with Father Noel!

The lingerie one is the Christmas special which also includes the Golden Cleruc award and Fr Todd Unctous. It is simply brilliant from beginning to end.

The racist one is good too.

Pat Mustard.

They're all fantastic.

Sorry, my lovely horse

Yes! If you only can do one, you should do A Song for Europe.

My lovely horse / Bishop Brennan / the Speed take-off / lovely girls... Everyone is a classic

Any if them, all are wonderful. Frank Kelly used to read part of the Easter Passion in our local church. As a teenager it was really hard to listen to him being so solemn -- everyone expected him to shout an obscenity at any moment.

Rest in peace Mr Kelly.

Oh God yes, My Lovely Horse.

And the appalling beauty pageant.

And Mrs Doyle and the purse fight / window fall / tea machine knuckle-biting misery.

And just, Father Feckin' Jack. Bless you. Bless you my love.

The one with Fr Finton Stack is my fave. He is the scariest priest ever.

Whenever I see people considering Finton on mn baby names I find myself shouting "no! don't name your lovely tiny perfect baby after Finton Stack"

I can't believe you're asking us to chose. That's cruel. Cruel and wicked.

You should be ashamed of yourself OP.
