Hey movie lovers,
FOX and BBC are officially my fairy godmothers! They have made the absolutely fabulous happen and I am through the roof!
The addictive funny show, Absolutely Fabulous-more popularly known as Ab Fab made its first TV debut in 1992. I hadn’t discovered it until around 2000 when it was on re-runs on Comedy Central. It was one of the most amazing comedic finds I had ever experienced. It was also my first experience with British comedy. The kind of smart, dirty, dry comedy that makes America’s uncensored stuff look like kids stuff.
Edina Monsoon was the ultimate single, ditzy woman before anyone else could monopolize on the concept. Her middle-aged, party girl, forever drunk persona could not bore me, no matter how many episodes I watched a day.
Patsy was the ultimate party girl companion and her rivalry with Edina’s daughter, Saffy, was everything you could ever ask in cruel banter.
I haven’t been this excited to see the gang since 2012 with their Olympics special. Ab Fab glory is coming to the big screens, people! The world needs to be ready or they won’t be able to handle the FABULOUS! Meanwhile,
Is it too much to ask for it to be in 3D? NO. 5D! I want to taste Edina’s liquor, I want to smell Patsy’s smoke; second hand smoking risks be damned!
If you don’t understand why all of a sudden your mom screamed at getting this news, go watch this Youtube video, get your life and then scream with her till 2016:
Until then, stay Ab Fab everyone!
