Absolutely Fabulous

 (55)IMDb 8.11992TV-14
Jennifer Saunders leads an all-star cast as the outrageous, fashion-obsessed Edina in this multi award-winning comedy. Her life of excess is surpassed only by her best friend Patsy, who smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish and dresses like a dream. Life would be one long party - if only Edina's bookworm daughter Saffron would stop complaining and start joining in like a normal teenager.
