Format: DVD
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the exploits of Patsy and Edina will surely be happy to know that the pair are still thriving! Twenty years after the 1992 debut of "Absolutely Fabulous," Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley return to their iconic roles for these three short form specials. And it's a reunion well worth taking. Boozy, bawdy, and wildly inappropriate--I think that it's fair to say that the gal pals still exist in a universe of their own devising. That's good news for the viewers, but not always a pleasure for the others in their midst. In addition to Lumley and Saunders, many of your favorite original characters also return (in some form or another) and you just might be surprised to learn what they've been up to!

The three specials are Identity, Job and Olympics.

Identity: Kicking things off, this special has to reintroduce the cast in a rapid and effective manner and it succeeds tremendously. Saffron (Edina's usually sensible daughter) returns home after a long absence and welcomes another unexpected guest in the process. Not to ruin the surprise, but it's not quite the homecoming you would anticipate. Saffron's visitor has past ties to Patsy and, in a word, the situation is complicated. To extricate herself from this difficulty, Patsy must face her biggest demons--her age and her vanity. And Saunders, as usual, is terrific!

Job: A hilarious spoof on celebrity, hype, and public relations, Edina decides to represent and promote French Film star Jeanne Durand in a one night only can't-miss concert performance. Needless to say, things do not go smoothly! Lindsay Duncan is spot-on as the aging star, but the hero of this piece is a familiar and welcome face.

I've seen the first two episodes of this set and was pleasantly surprised that it was still hilarious fun. Without giving anything away, there are some surprises for long-time fans. However, I noticed this runs 90 minutes and the one on the UK Amazon site is 113 minutes. Anyone know why?

My fellow Amazon reviewer K. Harris has already done a fine job on detailing the basics of this grouping of three very funny "specials" which reunited the "girls" of AbFab (and other characters from the BBC show, so I won't take your time to repeat that info. But I hope I can add a few extra pieces of info.

In answer to the question raised by another reviewer (Caroline Bender), the three episodes do not run 90 minutes. They run "90 Minutes APPROX.). Each episode is about 28 minutes long. Generally the US versions of BBC Home Video releases are the UK versions - with some "language" that was cut for BBC America cable airings. I can't be for sure , but I'm guessing these are the same episodes aired in the UK.

There are TWO DVD extras, not previously mentioned: Both have to do with Edina and Patsy appearing on a BBC benefit called "Sports Relief". First we get the portion of the SR show (about seven minutes) and then the "Behind The Scenes at Sports Relief" where the cast comments on things like Jennifer Saunders (who plays Edina and writes the scripts for AbFab) constantly changing thee script to keep it funny. This "Behind the Scenes" extra runs about 17 minutes.

I have to admit I've only seen a few of the AbFab shows, but found these funny. I'm sure they will more than satisfy AbFab fans.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

20 years after the series first aired it was good to see what this bunch of crazies were up to and they did not disappoint in these 3 episode - Edwina and Patsy are as narcisistic as every Safron is still uptight - Bubbles is still an idiot and Mrs. Moonsoon is still amazing with her one line zingers. Even the Olympics is not spared the indignity of Patsy and Edwina's antics - I loved every moment of this and would recommend it as a must have

Jennifer Saunders does it again! Pasty and Edina are back doing what they do best! They still are funny and entertaining as they have always been! Hope Jennifer writes more absolutely fabulous! Not as funny as the rest of the seasons of ab-fab, but Jennifer still brings enough to make us want more of Pasty and Edina!
