TV Series: Ballykissangel

This is another British (at least BBC, set in Ireland) show that I discovered recently and really enjoyed.  It follows the adventures of a young priest from Manchester assigned to a parish in Ireland in the town of Ballykissangel.

His supervisor is somewhat conservative and doesn’t always appreciate his approach to ministry, but the villagers often do, with the frequent exception of one of the largest contributors to the church.  Those who have been involved in ministry will recognize the types of problems he encounters as well as the joys.  The culture may change, but the human equation remains the same.

I’ve put my humor and mystery previews from British sources on this page.  These are also available for viewing on Netflix by subscribers.
