Absolutely disastrous: Fox redoing Absolutely Fabulous
Tim Surette
staff

OK, now this is getting ridiculous. Television executives continue to rely solely on the ideas of their forefathers by taking the ideas of years past, repackaging them for a new audience, and thinking they'll work. Most adaptations have been disasters so far, but that isn't stopping anyone from chugging along with the rehashes.

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.

British comedy celebrated at BAFTAs

Absolutely Fabulous creators Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders were given the top award at the 62nd Bafta Television awards last night. The comedy duo received a special fellowship from multi-award winning actress Dame Helen Mirren, who praised their 30-year career television saying: "they are just so good, so brilliant and so damn cool."

Harry Hill was named the UK's best entertainment performer for the second year in a row -- the third overall -- for his ITV comedy show Harry Hill's TV Burp.

On collecting the award Hill said: "I never thought I'd get three Baftas for a clip show. Ridiculous." The comedian lost out in the entertainment show category, however, which was awarded to Simon Cowell's reality hit The X Factor.

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!moreless
