5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Television EVER!!! April 24, 2008
Format:DVD
This is simply the one of the best, if not the best, television show to come out of any country. A truly hilarious show of a couple of women who are completely in their own worlds, they smoke, they booze, they curse and all while wearing high fashion.
They've gone down roads that even the shows that were paved by them won't dare to go. It doesn't matter how often you watch these episodes, they never get old. Every character is just as outrageous as the next one.
A definite must see for everyone. And with this box set, you won't have to run around looking for the other seasons and specials. It'll all be in one set. BRAVO!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Packagaing Rears Its Ugly Head (Again)... February 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not a review of the BBC show Absolutely Fabulous. I like the show or I wouldn't have purchased this set. This is a review of the packaging. And when it comes to DVD's the packaging and transfer are as important as the show itself at least to those of us who care about quality.

I am amazed (though I shouldn't be by now) at how much time, effort, and money corporations put into the external packages of DVD sets and how little thought they put into the containers for the DVDs themselves (see Stargate SG1 Box Set...see Milestone I Am Cuba set...see The Wire box set...see the early Buffy and Angel season sets). I guess they assume (probably rightly I am sad to say if comments on Amazon are a guide) that for most consumers a sexy cover is more important than DVD substance. The recent Absolutely Fabulous DVD Complete set proves this point (if further proof is needed) once again.

This Absolutely Fabulous box may be "cool" and "sexy" to some. But for someone like me who cares more about the DVD's than the sexy container it leaves much to be desired. All the DVD's in the set are (unfortunately) packaged in cardboard (very tightly in cardboard I might add) and inevitably get scratched when you try to remove them (quite a task given the tightness of the cardboard holder). Now you may want to spend new money on used looking "new" discs but I don't. That is why I will be returning my set to Amazon for a refund and urging consumers out there not to buy this set until WB changes the packaging to something that is more DVD friendly.

Format:DVD
The packaging is great but, as in the original release, the studio neglected to provide the US audiences with the correct format for the New York special ("Gay"). The UK-issued version of the DVD was in 16:9 widescreen format, and this set unfortunately only has the full-screen, 4:3 format for this special. Would have been nice to finally get it right but the responsible people at Warner Home Video have obviously not paid attention to this rather important detail. Still, a great-looking set for AbFab enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything it's built up to be October 20, 2008
Format:DVD
If you're a fan of Ab Fab this is surely the boxset for you. It has all of the episodes plus bloopers plus all the extra movies and interviews.

Really it is fabulous except for one thing- there are no subtitles in the episodes but other than that superb. I love the cover it comes in- it's like a really fancy diary, so cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fancy packaging not DVD friendly January 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I LOVE this show. I also thought the packaging was cute. The problem is that when shrink-wrapped, the soft cover squishes everything together, making the cardboard DVD slots curved and tight. Every one of the discs was scratched taking it in and out of the package. Luckily there doesn't seem to be any damage to the viewing of the DVDs themselves. Laugh on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent June 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really good set in terms of content as it has everything AbFab. What really impressed me as well was the packaging - because the entire set is in the form of a book you can't misplace parts of the collection and there's even a little bookmark that you can use to mark the last dvd that you watched.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ab Fab is not for everyone, but ... if you have an off-the-wall sense...
Ab Fab is best in modest servings; watching all this at one time is a bit too much. Jennifer Saunders is a unique ... mind.

Yes tell us please!

Don't forget the Chicago scene in one of the Series 5 episodes. And Series 2 and seemingly anything after Series 3 not having the proper "Wheel's On Fire" opening.

If they got the rights to the music and restored these scenes, then maybe I'll buy this set. If... Read more

What about subtitles???
Highly unlikely the US set 'Absolutely Everything' got Spanish subtitles, better buy the DVD's or DVDset in Spain or a Spanish language country.
