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.
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 liked this series a lot and so did my wife. I rated it as a 5 star item. This set makes a great gift for those that like British sitcom humor.
I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation and I promised to provide a fair and honest review.
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.
