Best Episode #20

Speed 3  – A local randy milkman seeks revenge after Father Ted gets him fired. Father Dougal has to take over his milk round and ends up getting his milk float rigged with a bomb set to detonate if his speed should go below a certain point. Father Ted saves the day! (1998)

Episode characteristics & General Consensus:
This episode contains great interplay between Ted and Dougal, Mrs Doyle, three priests and also a randy milkman. Considered a classic episode and hilarious from start to finish with many great moments.

Fans Comments:
Total and utter comedy brilliance. This episode is perfect from start to finish.

 

 

Worst Episode #6

And God Created Woman – Father Ted has the hots for a lady visitor to the parish. His ardour is cooled somewhat when he discovers that she is not interested in him but more interested in becoming a nun and joining the nunnery. (1995)

Episode characteristics & General Consensus:
Depicts Father Ted’s discomfort as he tries “get off” with an authoress. Father Dougal has little to do in this episode and that is perhaps why it is the lowest rating. Just a fun episode.

Fans Comments:
Ted’s extreme discomfort throughout leads to the usual fun.
