Sorry the site was down. Server people had problems. But it wasn't down for too long. If it's ever not working then just wait a few hours and it should be back up.

the web hosts have had some small problems which is why it's gone down every now and then recently. they say it'll be sorted out soon, but i've been talking to someone about moving the site to somewhere more stable so i'll let you know how that goes.

Dougal: Last year I had a go with the horse riding and it was just fantastic
Ted: I didn't know you could ride horses
Dougal: Well it wasn't a real horse Ted like. It was this old fella with a saddle on him

Maybe we should start a favourite Fr.Ted quotes topic.....

I figured that's what your avatar was about, Emmett, but I'd never heard of that show until very recently. Would it be funny if you aren't Irish and/or religious?

Angela, I think I heard that they are 'reworking' (aka destroying) it for America... Tell them to leave it alone!!!

They really messed up 'Faulty Towers' (an all time great show) by turning it into 'Payne' (unwatchable crap)... and they didn't even change it that much!

It was really popular in England. "Channel 4" (English TV station) showed it for years.

It's an Irish show... Irish writers, actors, locations etc... but RTE didn't think it was any good and passed on it, so Channel4 (UK) paid for it.

There were a few series (3 I think). Then they decided to finish it, just because they wanted it to always be fresh. On the night the final show was being shown the star (Dermot Morgan) held a party for his close friends and died of a heart attack (I think).

Buy the DVDs you won't be disappointed!

A tired brain is a horrible thing. smileys/smiley5.gif I'm at my second cup now, Daragh!

Thanks for the run-down, Wheels. As for anything being converted for the US market, it's bound to be a desaster.

Public TV buys originals and they love British shows, but I doubt they'd show it on there because of the Christian right and people are still reeling from all the abuse by catholic priests that came to light recently.

I've put the DVD on my wish list smileys/smiley17.gif

You can read ALL about it here: Abuse in the Catholic Church (http://www.boston.com/globe/spotlight/abuse/)

"As news broke in early 2002 of a clergy abuse coverup in the Boston Archdiocese, they began to come forward: Victims of abusive priests who had remained silent for years, ashamed to tell their stories or afraid they'd never be believed.

There was the Jamaica Plain mother who invited the Rev. John Geoghan into her home for years, unaware he was molesting her three young sons in their beds. And the Salem boys who were enticed by the Rev. Joseph Birmingham to take trips to the ice cream shop, only to be molested by the priest in his car."
