    Sin Is In!

    This hit British comedy series began 1992 and remains one of the BBC's highest rated and most popular shows.

    Absolutely Fabulous follows the lives of three (and later four) generations of the Monsoon family and the people around them.

    It began as a short French & Saunders sketch with Jennifer Saunders in her familiar role as Edina and Dawn French playing her daughter. A pilot for the series was filmed with the comediennes in those respective roles but Julia Sawalha was cast to replace French. Add a dash of actress Joanna Lumley and the immensly popular and entertaining series was born.

    Wheel's on fire,
    Rolling down the road!
    Best notify my next of kin,
    This wheel shall explode!

    Now they are the last blinkered women in the bunker, hoarding designer shoes and awaiting an Evite back to the glamorous life. They don't belong there, and that's what makes them so welcome.

    Their unwavering obliviousness to what may be happening in the world actually makes their accidental commentary on current events even funnier.

    Once past its shock concept, however, Ab Fab (as its overseas fans call it) simply doesn't have the punchlines to match the wonderfully over-the-top performances of Saunders and Lumley.

I always know I will have a big laughNow, this is the kind of TV serie that is worth to buy, why? Because I love to watch it again and again. I always know I will have a big laugh looking at Edina being pathetic, Patsy being drunk or Saffy being so desperate about her mom...and grandma and Bubble etc. Is is exagerated, yes and it makes me laugh out loud!!! It's a comedy and the British did a great one with Ab fab. Love. Expand

    Absolutely Unbearable.

    The show is 90% unfunny jokes about old age, crude humour and being pathetic. The other 10% is slightly interesting.
