Parents need to know that that Father Ted is an award-winning Irish comedy series that has takes jabs at Catholicism and the clergy through a cast of excessively flawed priests, bishops, and nuns. The priests' personal vices include alcohol, smoking, sex, and general disregard for other people, all of which go unchecked, despite the fact that they've landed the characters in parish exile. Red-letter language is common in the rectory, including "bulls--t," "hell," and the Irish colloquialism "feck," plus all of its iterations ("fecking," "fecker," etc.). Some characters allude to sexual encounters despite their celibacy vows, and occasionally women are shown with the men, undressed from the waist up and visible from the back. The series does nothing to cast religious life in a positive light, making this show a better choice for mature teens and adults.
