Had the misfortune of having to sit through 3 episodes of this at a relatives house over Christmas.

I didn't laugh once. It was f@cking atrocious television. It actually made me angry that my license fee is being given to alleged comedians who think that bad language equals wit and humour. It doesn't.


Can't believe that people are so easily taken in by this puerile crap

Just surprised that Nadia from bake off didn't make an appearance. She's been on everything else.

Another example of " dumbing down" at the once pioneering BBC

Best comedy on over xmas Catherine Tate's Nan. Humour each to his own, I never liked Only fools & horses. Can't beat old classics Likely lads, Steptoe & Son, Rising Damp. Don't mind Not Going out, The Peep show.

I watched the 1st Series in 2011 (?) and didn't rate it. Earlier this year I realised that in 4 years there have been 6 Series now and loads of Xmas 'Specials' and 'Live' DVD's. It made me wonder how come it's been so successful since that 1st Series so I thought I'd watch some of the other stuff.

I've since watched Series 2 & 3 plus most of the Specials and 'Live' stuff and have had a complete change of view from my first perceptions.

It IS very, VERY funny.

Irish humour is different to English humour. It's often more subtle and understated. I just didn't get Father Ted at the beginning but again grew to appreciate the sometimes subtle, usually irreverent and often zany approach that this show employed. Mrs Brown's Boys is similar in style and substance. But it's also clever, irreverent humour too and is also 'self-mocking' in the old perceptions of portraying the Irish as 'thick'.

I like the 'in front of a live audience' bit as it adds a different dimension to British/Iri

Father Ted is the greatest sitcom of all time, almost, you can't compare Mrs Brown's Boys to it - It's like comparing Gareth Evans to Mesut Ozil!

Next year take the box set of 'Toast of London' round IBS. Quality.

Television for the hard of thinking, absolute rubbish, not funny and the laughter supposedly from the audience sounds canned!

Indeed they are, you have to be canned to sit through it.
