Product Description

Life is a challenge for any priest in a small mountain town, and Father Peter Clifford struggles to save his parishioners' souls without falling himself...for the local barkeep, Assumpta Fitzgerald.

Amazon.com

Ballykissangel's 1997 BBC and PBS season represents the full blossoming of its charming debut. Characters have grown and relationships have deepened in the small Irish village affectionately known among locals as "BallyK." Despite the pastoral setting, hopes, disappointments, and intrigues flourish with implacable regularity: babies are conceived and miscarried, voices of friends are raised and quieted over pints, priests are both buddies and confessors. Ambition, survival, and the constancy of community are more important in Ballykissangel's thoughtful comedy than eccentricity (though there is certainly plenty of that). Think of this show as an Irish Northern Exposure, including appealing counterparts to some of that American series' key characters.

In "For One Night Only," the Manchester, England-born Father Peter Clifford (Stephen Tompkinson) further complicates his ambiguous and professionally forbidden feelings for Assumpta Fitzgerald (Dervla Kirwan), the beautiful and sardonic pub owner, by playing a love scene with her. The ever-observant and long-suffering Father Peter also finds an abandoned baby on his doorstep in "The Facts of Life," a sour irony for Niamh (Tina Kellegher) and Ambrose (Peter Hanly) Egan, the much-admired young couple who lose their first pregnancy from natural causes. Meanwhile, Niamh's father, the relentless contractor, Brian Quigley (Tony Doyle), continues his quest for the perfect scam, burying profits and inventing creative bribes to sway clients and officials. It speaks well of Ballykissangel's moral, if mellow, complexity that Brian, like Peter's nemesis, Father MacNally (Niall Toibin), can be appreciated for his full humanity regardless of his misdeeds.

Other highlights: "In the Can," in which the fiercely independent Assumpta goes out with a womanizing pop star despite advice to the contrary. "Money, Money, Money" finds Brian burned in a gambling scheme then seeking revenge through a charity poker tournament. The season finale, "Chinese Whispers," concerns widespread paranoia when two mysterious government investigators show up. The episode is quite funny, and ultimately reassuring about all that is soulful and good in BallyK. --Tom Keogh

    Anyone who enjoyed the first season of Ballykissangel will definitely love the second! All of the characters are more fully developed and new ones are introduced. The storyline is never dull, and some of the episodes delve into more serious issues. My only question is, when is the third season coming out?

    The first three seasons of Ballykissangel are top notch. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the DVD's which are very poor quality. There is an overall graininess throughout and compression artifacts are visible to the point of being a distraction. If you are a Bally-K fan your options for owning the series are limited, but I would hold out for a remastered DVD, perhaps an anniversary edition down the road...

    In a show which appears to abound with possible anomalies, unexpectedly comes the most profound commonsense and, with it, immense enjoyment.

    In a most unlikely Irish village, live a most unlikely group of villagers. A group which includes the good, the bad, and the rather stupid. Overseer, at the top of the hierarchy, is a non too pleasant, but feared, senior Priest. The foregoing would hardly make an aceptable show - let alone a great one. Ballykissangel is made great, truly great, by the inclusion to the above characters of a raw English born Priest, an attractive but atheist female Publican, a conscientious but fallible Policeman, a caring Schoolmaster and, lastly but crucially, a lovable rogue of a Businessman.

    It would be unfair to pick any one actor as superior. The main characters are superbly played by the cast, while the 'lesser lights' are no less deserving of high praise.

    Ballykissangel is a 'Fairy Tale', in that good invariably triumphs over evil but, the convoluted stories which evolve from the behaviour of the residents of this small community are suspenseful and highly entertaining. The writing, like the acting, is first rate.

    This must be one of the most viewable of all the Drama/Comedies ever produced. One wishes one could live in Ballykissangel!

    Having seen the show on BBC America, I generally took after getting the newly released videos. Ballykissangel is an entertaining Irish comedy filled with eccentric characters and plots that makes it sort of an Irish NORTHERN EXPOSURE. The cast of characters include Father Peter Clifford, an english priest just recently arrived; Assumpta Fitzgerald, the no-nonsense barkeeper who becomes attracted to the new curate; The shrewd businessman Brian Quigley; his fiery daughter Niamh and her fiancee, by-the-book Gardi Ambrose Egan. The videos released are from the premiere season, which I believe was the best because of its tounge-in-cheek humor and positive tone (In the future, BallyK, while still keeping its brand of humor, generally turned more dramatic and darker in the later seasons, as key characters either left or got killed off). Of the three videos, volume two- where Ambrose nearly becomes a priest, and Father Clifford taking driving lessons- is probably my favorite, cleverly funny and entertaining. Like the rest of the videos, this features a behind-the-scenes look on the show: a definitive must for BallyK fans.

    I am giving 5 stars for the series, even though I have a serious complaint about Amazon Prime Instant Video. I never saw this series when it was first aired on TV, but really "got into it" once I started watching it on Amazon Instant Video and was enjoying it very much. However, I was about 3 or 4 episodes into Season 3, when suddenly the next day I could no longer get it! There was some message about their contract making it impossible for me to see the rest of this season. Because this has happened to me a few times before, with other series, I am wondering if it is a cheap, manipulative ploy on Amazon's part to "hook" you and then pull the rug out from under you so that you have to pay to see the rest of the series. So far, I have not! I am already paying for Prime, and this is not a new series after all! Has anyone else had this experience?

    My sister lives in Ann Arbor and watches a lot of British shows. When we got our roku she told us a bunch to watch. We watched an episode of Ballykissangel and we are hooked. The characters and the stories are delightful. We always laugh sometime watching. It's our happy show. The people seem real unlike so many American shows.

    Classic, timely, funny, and moving. Well acted. Great scenery. Have enjoyed the first three seasons (my favorites) for some time now. Loved too that there was nothing offensive (language or otherwise). Very impressive production.

    The series is great, but I am angry! When I came to Series 5, Prime stopped streaming it. This has a direct bearing on whether or not I purchase a new Kindle in the future or go with a different tablet.
