- Starring: Jennifer Saunders, Jane Horrocks, Joanna Lumley
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.

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.
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.
Dec 16, 2012Now, 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
