Scripts, almost by definition, are not the finished article. Reading 'Romeo and Juliet' is not the same as watching the play although, in that particular case, tedium is always the end result*.

So when I read scripts for something I generally like as much as 'Father Ted' the text seem to float off the page and superimpose themselves over the same events as seen on TV. Which means of course it's almost impossible to write an unbiased review of the words alone.

I LOVE Father Ted, my dad bought me this book and I read it in a day and by the end of it I was in tears through laughing so much. If you have seen the series then read this its like you are watching the episode in your head.

The greatest sitcom of all time.

These scripts are like gold dust. There are some nice extras thrown in too.

Must have book for fans of the show. Includes full scripts with deleted scenes, some commentary by the creators, and stills from the episodes. Would have liked to see a few more extras such as interviews and behind the scenes pictures, but I'll take what I can get.

A must for any Father Ted fan! Not the final drafts so contains unused scenes, and also an introduction to each episode by the writers. I couldn't stop laughing reading this!

I have never laughed so much than when I read this for the first time. I received it as a xmas present. It was the first thing I opened and I immediately spent the next few hours howling in laughter, ignoring everything and everyone else around me until I had finished.
