Vicar of Dibley review

This tv show is very entertaining whether you’re Christian or not. I have rated it 12+ because it does have offensive language and is not show for anyone under 12. Especially since some episodes contain jokes about sex which younger ones wouldn’t understand and is inappropriate. However if you like classic British comedy then this show is for you.

If you are introducing your kids to the Vicar of Dibley then start with a milder episode like Series 1:6 Election which doesn’t include too much sexual jokes. However one that should only be watched when appropriate is Series 3:1 Autumn which includes the many inappropriate jokes.

However many episodes hold meanings that can teach people life lessons eg. be careful what you wish for.

All in all The Vicar of Dibley is a true British classic. Just make sure that younger kids are in bed before you want with your tween/teen.

Very good!

It really like watching The Vicar of Dibley. It is funny and a classic British comedy. It is a bit confusing that it is rated PG on Netflix because it is definitely not aimed at young children. It has words like bastard ass and one character talks about playing with his dick in a song. Those things would not be in a PG.

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!
