You may not want or even need this one. As listed, there is only an additional 10 minutes of footage from the first set to this, "The Definitive Collection" of "Father Ted". Here is a list of the bonus material:

* Commentary with Graham Linehan, Arthur Matthews, Ardal O'Hanlon, Tim Shuttlewoode & Chris Claycee
* Interview with Writers
* A Christmassy Ted
* Tedfest 2007 - A Very Ted Weekend
* Tedfest 2007 - Two Tribes Go To War
* Comedy Connections
* Comic Relief with Ted & Dougal
* Craggy Island Memories
* Dougal's Sound Effects Gallery
* Biographies
* Photo Gallery

The additions to the previous "Holy Trilogy" are:
* The 2 "Tedfest" featurettes (from a 2007 Father Ted convention)
* A 30-minute episode of the BBC program "Comedy Connections" from 2004 detailing the former and subsequent careers of the cast and writers
Craggy Island Memories
* Commentary tracks on the series 3 episodes (of which there were none on the original "The Holy Trilogy" - Series 1 and 2 already had commentary tracks by writer Graham Linehan who is joined on the 2nd half of series 2 by actor Ardal O'Hanlon.)
* Dougal's Sound Effects Gallery

While there is nothing left off the original release and the additions add only "10 minutes" to the running time (even though they add up to more), these additional features seem to make a double dip unnecessary unless you are a "Father Ted" completist.

I purchased the first "Holy Trilogy" box set as a blind buy when looking for some new British comedy and was pleasantly suprised. While it took a few episodes to warm up to the characters, the series quickly grew on me.

This is an extraordinary show. The only minus is it was only on for three seasons. It is side-splittingly funny. You will be laughing out loud as Father Ted, Father Dougal and Father Jack, along with their housekeeper, Mrs. Doyle, stumble through life, almost demolish Catholicism, reveal the hypocrisy rampant in us all, and make social commentary that is incredibly witty, but is also bitingly accurate! Whether you're just looking for a laugh, or enjoy seeing pompous arse's brought down low, this show is for you. And as an added bonus, the location,the fictional "Craggy Island" is one of the most beautiful locations ever! You need this in your collection! And the Yuletide extra, "A Christmassy Ted" is worth the price all by itself!

Apparently the definitive Collection is not necessary if you already own The Holy Trilogy. That being said, I did not, and therefore found this to be a necessity to my tv on dvd collection. Although most of the special features aren't vital, it's nice to see Ted & Dougal's TV spots and to here the actor who portrayed Dougal joke about on his commentaries. If you've already seen Father Ted, and enjoy it, this is worth the price, and will provide plenty of laughs for you, and the people you know who weren't fortunate enough to stumble upon this on there own. If you haven't seen this show, well a brief synopsis would be it focuses on three priests (In the looses sense) one a monosyllabic drunkard, another a man child, and the third, the title character, just happens to always be in the wrong place in the wrong time (and is probably an embezzler) and how they really want to just be normal people (which doesn't stop them from using there priest status when it benefits them) on an island of the mainland of Ireland full of people who are the farthest thing from normal. Watch an episode first and if you like 1, you'll like all 25 episodes.

Once upon a time, on an Irish island so small that it didn't appear on the maps, there lived these three priests... yeah, it sounds like the setup for a joke or a really bad religious story.

Fortunately it turns out to be the theme for "Father Ted - The Definitive Collection," a kooky comedy about a trio of painfully unholy priests -- moderately crude, quite goofy, and full of insanity. The series gets progressively weirder as it follows the adventures of the titular character and his drunken and/or idiotic sidekicks, and the cast is absolutely brilliant.

On Craggy Island, there's a single Catholic parish run by three priests -- long-suffering Father Ted (Dermot Morgan), half-witted Father Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon), and deranged foul-mouthed lecherous alcoholic Father Jack (Frank Kelly). They also have a crazy housekeeper obsessed with tea. The priests aren't exactly holy, since all three have been exiled there for various misdeeds.

Over the three seasons, the priests encounter the hostile bishop, a sexy author, a dead-boring houseguest, the worst priest in the world, a trio of bishops, TV hosts, a radical feminist rocker, a slutty milkman, a nervous sheep, and a hardcore nun who could double as an inquisitor.

They have to deal with the blasphemous pornographic film "The Passion of St. Tibulus," a plague of rabbits, a costume competition, bishop buttkicking, bomb-carrying milk floats ("Ted, I wanna be a priest again!

New mega set?
The only thing I can think of that might be new (aside from any new documentaries or such things that they might have created recently) are the episode commentaries for the second half of series 2. I believe they included Graham Linehan along with Ardal O'Hanlon, but were only on the UK release.... Read More

Remastered?
No, it doesn't look like it. In fact the pq is not that good at all.
