Review:

Few things in life are more deliriously satisfying than an episode of Absolutely Fabulous. The first series of this Britcom burst out of the gate fully formed and viciously funny: Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders, French & Saunders, Shrek 2), a publicist who will drink, snort, or eat anything put in front of her, lives with her daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha, Chicken Run), who rebels against her compulsively bohemian mother by being as sensible and straight-laced as possible. She might have some influence over the easily swayed Eddy...were it not for Edina's best friend and topnotch enabler, Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley, The New Avengers), a terrifying fashion director who drinks and snorts even more substances than Edina. This comic triangle has chemistry beyond compare. The first season is the purest, mining the most humor from the role-reversal of Saffron trying to parent Edina and from the sheer excess of Patsy and Edina's appetites. Saunders wrote all six episodes; her dialogue sparkles like a gem and cuts like a razor, savaging every trend imaginable, mocking the fashion world, dieting, women's magazines, liposuction, collagen treatments, resisting growing old, France--nothing is sacred and nothing is spared. Absolutely Fabulous is unadulterated perfection, simply one of the funniest sitcoms ever made, British or American. The only extras are a small handful of outtakes and deleted scenes, but when the shows are this good, extras are superfluous. --Bret Fetzer
