Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A warm and dynamic comedy-drama about an Irish village, Ballykissangel blends whimsy, heartbreak, and gorgeous scenery with deft charm. Though the first few series were built around the local priest, in the fifth series the storylines are evenly spread among the entire cast (even as some major characters leave and others arrive). The season is driven by romances: Troubled Niamh (Tina Kellegher, The Snapper) grapples with her love for Sean (Lorcan Cranitch, Dancing at Lughnasa), knowing it spells the end of her marriage to Ambrose (Peter Hanly, Braveheart)--but little does she suspect the form that end will take; and svelte and sexy Orla (Victoria Smurfit, Trial and Retribution) finds a new interest in rangy sailor Connor (Owen Teale, Island at War). Meanwhile, adventures abound, ranging from a hot air balloon race to gangsters seeking stolen caviar to the unexpected appearance of an automatic toilet. The arrival of the Dooley family and new police officer Frankie Sullivan (Catherine Cusack) brings a whole set of new character and new relationships to the village, all explored with the same intelligence and heart that's marked the series from its inception. And of course there's hunky Colin Farrell (Miami Vice) as an earnest young farmer (though his role this season is more peripheral than in the previous series). Newcomers to the show will find themselves hooked by the end of the first episode of this series. Fans of Northern Exposure or similar American shows may find a kindred sensibility in Ballykissangel. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Life is a challenge for any priest in a small mountain town. In Series 5, Father Aiden O'Connell finds himself dealing with a new romance for Niamh and Orla, a new garda for Bally K, and the return of an old rival for Brian Quigley. He also runs into some troubles of his own.

Welcome back to Ireland and your favorite townsfolk in BallyKissangel---well, actually, all of them are not on board for season 5, but enough of them are for this season to be an enjoyable one nevertheless. Father Aidan's return, in my opinion, is crucial herein. After 3 years of Father Peter Clifford, it's welcoming to have the same local priest around for a second year running. The priest is, generally speaking, the central focus of this drama set---and filmed---in Ireland; in Avoca, in case you're in the Dublin area. It's not too far away for a glass of stout in Fitzgerald's Bar if you're driving south. Interestingly too, Don Wycherley, who plays Father Aiden is Tina Kellegher's (Niamh) real-life brother-in-law, providing an extra dose of natural emotion in this warm-hearted program.

Change is represented by the arrival of a new police Guard to town, and the character is a winning one---a woman this time, going by the name of Frankie, but she's attractive and capable in the role; but also rather more of a "tough guy" than Guard Egan (though also likable) ever was during the first 4 years. Ambrose Egan's widow, the aforementioned Niamh (who can be seen in the fine Irish drama by the title of "The Hanging Gale" with the fabulous Michael Kitchen starring), is the star of this season.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing March 8, 2007
Format:DVD
Being a big fan of the Ballykissangel series, I own and have watched all the previous. And unfortunately each series has gotten progessively more disappointing with this one actually not watchable. Its slow, boring, and has officailly Jumped the Shark. I'd pass this over and stick to the first three in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've known these people my whole life October 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to start by saying that Ballykissangel is a television series filmed in Ireland and the entire 6 years are available on DVD. This review is about Series 5, although I must include references to each of the years of the Series. The people that you will meet in the fictional town of Ballykissangel will make you laugh, cry, get mad, feel sorry for, and love. Their lives intertwine throughout the entire 6 years with a core of characters who are featured for the entire series. There are some major characters that leave and little vignettes with new and fleeting characters that only last one episode, but it needs to be this way to shake up things a bit. The show centers around a bar and a priest at the Catholic church in town. When you have finished watching all 6 years of this series, you will feel like you have known these people your whole life. And like a really good book, you won't want it to end. Series 5 specifically introduces some new characters to the show who end up playing major parts. You will enjoy all the ups and downs of their lives. I highly recommend Ballykissangel, but be sure to watch it beginning with Series 1.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ballykissangel chemistry February 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The average four star rating for the initial two - three episodes was justified. From season four each episode sooner or later focused on Quigley's daughter. That characters main dynamic was to pout like a two year old no matter what the issue was. Could only take so much of that, left the series half way through episode five!

3.0 out of 5 stars Miss the Original Characters January 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I loved Seasons 1-3. Then slowly characters started to die or disappear. As I have arrived at Seasons 5 and 6 the quality of the earlier stories is dwindling and I miss the original characters from the previous seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ballyk bright and beautiful February 16, 2007
Format:DVD
If this series only included disc 1 and 3 it would have been enough for the true Ballyk fans. The new actress (Frankie) is the downside for this series, she lacks the Ballyk spirit. Romance between Niamh and Sean is as gut wretching as that between Asumpta and Peter. This series is filled with light and beauty of the surrounding hills and farms seen from a hot air balloon, series 4 was dark and foreboding, this counteracts that. Liam and Donal, Brian, Father Max, Brenden and Shaboan are the same and hopefully remain the same in series 6 (which if anyone knows when it will be released please post it). We miss Aman,and Kathleen has two personalities in this series which a true fan will welcome. Can't wait for series 6.
