An Entertaining, But Not Great, End To The Series
on September 4, 2007
As as series-long fan of the AbFab girls, I bought this last DVD in great anticipation. However, it was a bit disappointing. Not as funny as the rest.
For the longtime fans, like me, there are lots of inside jokes (picking up on things that happened in previous programs). It's always fun to go back and relive the old situations - but might be a bit confusing to those who come to AbFab through this series. Best to start at the beginning to get the full effect.
I liked the last three episodes - where Saffy has her baby and the episodes following it - the best. John, the father of Saffy's baby, really made me laugh, especially in his dealings with Saffy's parents. And, I will always love Bo. God Bless Mo Gaffney! Finally, these last three episodes made me realize truly how nightmarish Edina was as a mother.
I agree with the other reviewer about the crazy BBC intro that you can't get around. I have found this on other BBC DVD's as well - and I'll tell you, it doesn't give a warm and fuzzy feeling. Certainly doesn't make ME want to go out and buy more. However, this isn't the forum to complain about that - next e-mail: to the BBC.com site! Join me there if you agree....no more mandatory intros!
