Positively marvellous

The Vicar of Dibley is really British humour at its peak; it's very funny and is consistently funny, so you won't go through an episode with lots of funny bits in one specific part. However, there are a few problems with the show. First of all, the sexual content is questionable, with references to relations with people and animals (however, these are the strongest offenders), incest and adultery. This, however, just adds to the humour, considering that this is a show about a vicar, who would normally not talk about such "unholy" things. Secondly, some of the cultural references in the show are very dated (the show, after all, was first made in 1994!), meaning that younger people might be a little bit confused with some of the references. For example, they speak about television or movie stars who are considerably older now or possibly even dead, boy bands/girl groups who broke up years ago and other, similar things. Disregarding those problems, I would highly recommend the show to anyone, Christian or otherwise, who loves comedy. Although one would think so, this show is not at all derogatory to the Christian faith and is very funny in places. Look out for some well-known guest stars as well!
