The Vicar of Dibley
I have been having great fun this past week watching the first 3 seasons of The Vicar of Dibley. Dawn French is just too funny! Well, they all are but she makes me laugh just by looking at her!
It's the story of a female Vicar assigned to a small conservative village. Her parishioners are at first surprised at having a woman perfoming the services but in time they get used to it and everything seems to go along smoothly. The Vicar is a lively and bubbly figure always enjoying a good joke, chocolate, rock'n'roll and looking for love without much luck. She is caring and truly interested in other people. The parishioners are not exactly your ordinary people their comments about each other and life in general are sometimes too silly and other times astonishing but always very funny which makes for some LOL moments in every episode.
The show usually starts with a meeting of the Parish Council and ends with Geraldine, the vicar, telling a joke to Alice, the verger. Although the jokes are usually rather funny Alice analises them as if they were real totally ruining them and never getting what's so funny.
The show ended with 2 christmas episodes last year and 1 comic relief special but recently there have been some news of a comeback. I certainly would love to have a few more to watch!
