The Vicar of Dibley is absolutely the best, most original, funniest British sit com ever. The cast of regulars are outstanding, the writing is superb, and the show features a small great roster of guest stars. This set includes the two-part holiday special/finale with the delicious Richard Armitage (North and South, Robin Hood). I checked around and Overstock has the lowest price anywhere. Note: Some jokes may not be appropriate for kids. No violence; some mildly suggestive situations and occasional cursing.
This is a somewhat provocative look at a female vicar assigned to a small town. Many of the characters in Dibley are "off color", so I wouldn't necessarily let the kids watch it, but for older viewers, this sitcom is HILARIOUS !!!!!! My sister kept telling about seeing this on PBS where she lives, but it was never aired on any PBS stations in the area where I live, so I had never seen any of the episodes. I bought the set because my sister kept saying how funny it is !!! I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who wants a snigger, a laugh, and a good gut-wrenching guffaw !!! It is one of the funniest sitcoms I have ever seen, and I really don't think it would make it past the ratings board for U.S. television, especially during prime time... The British seem to get away with a lot more inuendos and "bad words" than American TV allows... You can't go wrong with this purchase !!!!
Great, funny, funny BBC comedy series! We got it for my father-in-law for Christmas and it was the most-watched entertainment over our holiday break. If you love quirky, homey, sometimes naughty British humor, I mean, humour -- you'll love the Vicar of Dibley! P.S. - Overstock's shipping was so fast - and in the middle of December.
