The Vicar of Dibley: Volume 2 contains episodes 4, 5, and 6 from the first season of the show. (Note: British television 'seasons' are often much shorter than their American counterparts. Instead of having nearly two dozen episodes, Vicar of Dibley's first season has only 6.) With writing by Richard Curtis ('Four Weddings and a Funeral', 'Bean', and the BBC's 'Blackadder') and the considerable comic talents of Dawn French, this series is well worth seeking out.
French stars as the new Vicar in the tiny village of Dibley. While French can anchor a show all by herself, what really makes this show wonderful is the ensemble cast. For example, the regular church meetings, a staple of every episode, usually provide some of the best moments. And even though you can get away with saying some wild things on British television that wouldn't be allowed in America, this series never becomes vulgar or profane.
British television also seems to be a lot more realistic than American programming. For example, the camera isn't limited to filming full-figured Dawn French from the waist up, nor is her character forced to spend screen time ruminating about how she "really should lose weight". Instead, everyone in the village admirers her, for reasons that are evident in these episodes. Her character has flaws and dreams just like any one else, but her weight is simply not an issue.
This is a very well-balanced show; religion doesn't keep it from being side-splittingly funny, but the jokes do not make fun of religion, either. I highly recommend the Vicar of Dibley.
