I'm beginning to come around to your way of thinking re Fr. Ted, keep preaching it.We do it to ourselves, we do.
I am a broken record at this point, but that shit is essentially what I see when I watch Father Ted.
Also, I'm an expert on that show despite having never seen a full episode.
It's not for foreigners though. It's like Americans not getting Fawlty Towers, there might be silly English stereotypes that they think are funny on some superficial level but at the end of the day they don't get it. And maybe American sitcoms have a lot of subtext that I'm missing and they're funnier than I give them credit for.It's having one Irish character that was congenitally stupid and another that basically all he could say was drink. (and feck and girls, yes)
That is a double whammy of Irish stereotypes right there.
That's what foreigners are laughing at. Not Morgan the straight man or whatever 'sophistication' was in the humour or whatever digs there were at the church.
I do hate to go on about the same thing, but it's like everyone seeing a dress is blue and I see it covered in puke.
I can't unsee the puke, even though I know I'll never convince anyone.
aren't you contradicting yourself there, if your problem is that not enough people care what the english are doingI don't particularly care what the English are doing.
There just seems to be a low level of awareness that they are laughing at a show with a stupid Irishman and a drunk one
To some degree yes but overall it really doesn't fit the bill of a typical British sitcom of the time.Well, I imagine that if he wanted it green-lit it would have had some bearing on things.
It's the difference between caring and knowing.aren't you contradicting yourself there, if your problem is that not enough people care what the english are doing
