Show Summary

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!

    Watch this show; then lets chat. Brilliant, ahead of it time, and ever so English. Jennifer was/is a visionary.

    Good job Saunders and French. And please more Dawn French.

    I was first shown this by my best friend and I couldn't believe what I'd been missing. I'd been a fan of French and Saunders for quite a while, but I completely fell in love with this show. Brilliant writing and amazing comic acting. Its an often cheeky, yet never cruel parody of the world of PR, fashion and celebrity. How you can have loads of money from doing absolutely nothing at all, and two people who indulge all the time, just take what they want and do what they want, without thinking, all the time fretting about growing old, and desperately trying to stay young and cool. I love this show so much, as does my grandmother who is 82 and my brother, who is 17, proving it really does connect with all ages. I love it.moreless

    AbFab's Revival: Still Fabulous After All These Years

    It’s remarkable, really, how Edina and Patsy -- caricatures meant to lampoon the gaudy and clueless nouveau riche who sprung out of Margaret Thatcher’s England -- still seem so timely in a post-Occupy Wall Street world.
