This is a very smart comedy!

This show portrays a vicar as a human being, with a real life that happens to include the church.

As a pastor from a family of Presbyterian pastors, we find this series brilliant, funny, honest, and faithful. (Not all clergy would agree with us of course!) The collection of characters are played for humor, but they are also *very* recognizable to those who work in urban ministry. Both Adam and Alex's marriage and Adam's faith are beautifully nuanced. This show is not always laugh-out-loud funny or perfect, but I have seen nothing like it in authenticity and complexity. So, I give it 5 stars.

Understated, complex, funny, never mean. And characters develop--for good and ill--with each episode. The Rev., especially, has, uh, more than one dimension.

I've been watching Britcoms for nearly 40 years and Rev. is one of my favourites. Tom Hollander is brilliant and U.S. audiences who have seen him play villain like characters (Pirates of the Carribean) will be won over by his Rev. Adam Smallbone. I have watched this series repeatedly because of it's humourous, feel good-ness that speaks to everyone no matter what beliefs they hold. I look forward to Amazon carrying season 2 and I believe they are starting to film season 3 in the near future(?)
JOY!

I love this series. I believe it captures the depth of emotion and humor of the struggle to maintain faith in a cynical world.

"Rev" is a series of light-hearted sketches on a religioue subject, bringing out the problems of the church today, and sorting them out in a manner that is amusing. The characters portrayed are people that we meet in everyday life. Worth light-hearted viewing.

I enjoy watching an episode of "Rev" at the end of my day. Each episode combines humor and compassion as it wanders through an event in the visar's life, and the endings are always positive.

Smart funny with warm characters. Enjoy with a nice cup of tea. Adam is so human and tender in his approach to his parishioners.

I've been professional clergy for over two decades, and seen a number of attempts at portraying a minister's life on television---both US shows (Seventh Heaven, etc) and Brit Coms (Vicar of Dibley, etc). This is the first TV show that nails a pastor's life spot on. The producers really "get it" in terms of the constant and crazy challenges of contemporary parish life. Adam is also perfect in his vacillation between very human emotions and a genuine trust in God to see him through. On top of all that, it is simply hilarious at times and poignant at others. I may like this show more than other viewers would because I empathize so with the main character.
