Cross the pond with us as we revisit the beloved television classic, Father Ted. We love this show for its balanced cast of characters: the over-zealous Mrs. Doyle, the crotchety old pervert Father Jack, the simple non-believing Father Dougal, and of course, Father Ted. This week, we discuss how what began as a standup routine by Arthur Matthews became one of the most popular Irish and British television shows.
We also discuss Graham Linehan's controversial comments about the transgender community. Linehan's comments are disgusting and bigoted. Despite this, we agreed to discuss this show on the grounds that the bulk of the cast and crew do not agree with Linehan (at least, as far as we're aware at this time), and so we wanted to pay tribute to their incredible work.
