Join the many fans of British television series Ballykissangel, Father Ted, and The Vicar of Dibley who have “seen the light” and who thank heaven for a good laugh. Ecclesiastical humor, inspired characters, and heavenly scenery combine in these shows to provide a divine experience for faithful viewers. To have your own moment of conversion, check out a season or two of epidsodes, now on dvd at Bernardsville Public Library. You are sure to chortle, guffaw, and titter over these situational comedies which, more often than not, bring the headlining priests down from their pulpits and into the spiritual morass of village life. Father Ted and Ballykissangel take place in Ireland, and The Vicar of Dibley, featuring a female Anglican priest, is set in rural England.

Look for these dvd sets in The British Collection, a specially designed area of Bernardsville Public Library’s video section where BBC and other British film and television productions can be found. There are many temptations awaiting you there.
