This is a great BBC sitcom series. It is good for adults based on some of the topics and language used. It is a lot of fun to watch and the characters are very dynamic in acting out their roles. This set is beautifully packaged like you would like to see a collectors set. The outer case is a pink case that looks like a leather purse and the inside even is made to look like leopard shin. There are 10 disks and they are 20 hours and 35 minutes long. I show the disks and the packaging in the attached video so please take a look at it.

Here is what is on each disk:
1. Season One plus outtakes
2. Season Two plus outtakes
3. Season Three plus outtakes
4. Season Four
5. New York Special The Last Shout plus outtakes
6. Season Five Episodes 1 through 6
7. Season Five episodes 7 and 8 plus outtakes
8. 20th Anniversary specials
9. Bonus material
10. New bonus material

The quality of the video is very well done and it looks like it has been enhanced. I especially like that the disks have subtitles on them. Sometimes the accents and slang of British humor are hard for me to understand and I like the capability to be able to read the subtitles. Sometimes they just talk too fast! This series is very funny and hilarious. It is great to have the entire series and specials all on one disk set. Once you start viewing them you will not be able to stop.

Seasons 1 to 3 are all presented in small screen format but in high quality. The other seasons are all presented in 16:9 formats including the new 20th anniversary specials and the new bonus material disk. Disk 9 is older bonus material so it is in the smaller screen format. All the disks have subtitles but the outtake videos do not have subtitles.

I just finished viewing the first 2 disc and just loving it.
But I also have to say that I'm very pleased that subtitles were available.
My hearing is not what it used to be and by not being totally familar with British slang, the subtitles just make a great show even better for me. Because of this, I'm catching a lot that I missed in previous viewings which just adds to the enjoyment.
Thanks so much for including them in this set.

The episodes look very good. You can tell there has been work done on them. The packaging is not user friendly. The discs are kept in a case that resides in a purse. It is difficult to get the case out of the purse. The discs are not well situated in the case. When I opened the case, one of the discs popped up. Some of the discs are difficult to take out, and the packaging has some of the discs on top of each other. It's very annoying.

The "Absolutely All of It" is untrue for the "Birthing" episode. The Chicago musical number is still edited out. This is a big disappointment, and since the cost of the set is high, they should have paid for the rights.

I did not like the remastering at all. The episodes looked good, but it's completely different from what I am used to seeing. That bright, live tv feel. I felt like I was watching a movie version where they re-made the entire series word for word, but it didn't seem as funny. I don't know how to explain it. It was the same, but totally different. No Wheels on Fire theme song. The theme song is as iconic as the characters and the show is not the same without it. I also did not like the dvd packaging. I returned it and ordered the seasons individually. I am much happier watching the show with the theme song and no remastering. That's how I remember it, that's how I want to watch it. I absolutely love the show. I've been watching since high school, so like 15 years. I know the show well and did not like the remastering to make it look different, even if it does look better. That's just my opinion and do think the set is great if you can get over the remastering and no theme song....I couldn't.

The American completist will still be frustrated by a few things: still no "The Story of Absolutely Fabulous" from Jan 2004 with its great cast interviews, still no "Chicago" scene in "Birthin", and still no opening theme music, as the song rights are too expensive (and not worth it?) for this side of the pond (or something like that), which also results in some awkward editing/minor loss in the karaoke scene of "Birthday", the final cemetery shot of "Death", and the fashion show in "Gay". BUT...I was pleasantly surprised to see Madonna lyrics put back into "Death" and "The First Cut Is the Deepest" put back into "The Last Shout". The crisper resolution (and helpful subtitles) of the made-over Series 1-3 and "The Last Shout" is reason enough to invest in this collection. Indulge, sweetie.

This “Complete” set of AB Fab programs and specials runs 1235 minutes! For those of you without a calculator, I clue you in that that comes to 21 hours of zany fun! Since I’m trying to get through the holiday season and get other reviews posted, I obviously have not watched the full set. A few other reviews have provided some info – which I’ll comment on – and then add some more info.

Though there are 10 discs they are housed in a package just a bit thicker than ONE standard VHS tape. Thank goodness. Though the producers created a clever “red purse” design, it is still stores easily.

A few reviews mention the English subtitles. Since I have not seen the prior ABFAB collections, I can tell if they were on earlier sets but the “New bonus features” – per the press release include FRENCH language subtitles – so the English ones may have been there before. Other NEW Bonus Features include:
A” History of AB/FAB" featurette
An interview with actress June Whitfield
The 2012 Ab Fab Comic Relief Special
Newly recorded intros by Jon Plowman for the 20th Anniversary Specials and three of the sketches
Video of Jennifer and Joanna carrying the Olympic Torch

If you love the show, and don’t have the prior collections, this is a handy way to have them all. Honestly, if you own them, you’ll have to decide whether to upgrade and pass you older set on to make an new Ab Fab fan.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
