Funland, "the fairground thing," is coming to Craggy Island, and Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) is energized, especially about a nonexistent attraction, the Spider-Baby. Ted (Dermot Morgan) is equally excited, but only because he thinks his shot at stardom is looming, since he's supposed to be interviewed by a visiting film crew for a religious television show, "Faith of Our Fathers." Ted tries to keep his interview a secret from Dougal and Jack (Frank Kelly), as he thinks they'll be an embarrassment. When signals are crossed, Dougal is mistaken for Ted and interviewed in his place, and a paranoid Ted winds up heavily bandaged after a mishap on a Funland ride. ("Good Luck, Father Ted" was meant to air as the third episode in the series, but the writers decided it should be the series premiere, seeing it as the best introduction to the characters.)
