In Absolutely Fabulous: Series 5, Edina and Patsy surround themselves with a constellation of stars, including Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient, Gosford Park), former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Hollywood star Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, Gross Pointe Blank), fashionista Jean-Paul Gaultier, and the one-and-only Elton John! High on the agenda are book clubs with London's top glitterati, weekends in the country a la Madonna and Guy, and intimate gatherings with Elton on the piano. But when Saffy returns from a few months as an aid worker, Edina's heady world is turned upside down by her startling news. Babies and Bollinger don't mix, after all...or do they?

Few things are as addictive as the addictive personalities of Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley), two middle-aged hipsters wallowing in clothes, booze, pills, glamour, celebrity, and anything else their excessive appetites demand. The fifth series of Absolutely Fabulous finds Edina coping with the unexpected pregnancy of her long-suffering daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha) and the departure of all of her PR clients except for Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton (playing herself with good humor). Every episode chronicles some ridiculous new obsession--Edina gets a panic room (and promptly traps herself inside of it); Patsy rediscovers a bunch of tawdry stag films she starred in and proclaims them works of high camp; the two kidnap Saffron's baby for a fashion shoot with Jean-Paul Gaultier. Saunders and Lumley fuse the ruthless social satire of Molière with the lowbrow physical high jinks of the Three Stooges, ably supported by Sawalha, Jane Horrocks (as Edina's dimwitted assistant Bubble and scheming narcissist Katy Grin), and a host of guest stars like Minnie Driver (in a razor-sharp self-parody), Kristin Scott-Thomas, Elton John, and more. Truly one of the gems of British sitcoms; sheer brilliance. --Bret Fetzer
