Season 1
4.4 out of 5 stars (475) IMDb 8.2/10

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

However, they've cut all the good stuff out! I am so disappointed in this compilation-- all of the drug use, and even the karaoke scene at the end of "Birthday" was cut, although it has nothing incendiary about it.

I want to return it or get my money back very badly. This is just a rip-off.

This TV show is a GREAT SHOW, but do not buy these DVD's because they cut a LOT out. No smoking joints, no tooting lines to account for the little trysts these ladies go through. Without these "actions" as a frame of reference, a person who had never seen this show before might just think these ladies are cuckoo. (well they might be, but for good reason!) Fabulous Darling.

I have never seen a British comedy that can make me laugh as much as Absolutely Fabulous can. The show was originally a 10 minute sketch on the French And Saunders Show. Jennifer Saunders soon saw its potential and Absolutely Fabulous was born. The show's pilot episode - Fashion - was first broadcast on 12th November 1992. The show became an instant hit and was the most successful British comedy for years. The chemistry between characters such as Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) is magic, and Saffy Monsoon (Julia Sawahla) as Edina's straight-laced daughter is genius. The show's genius lies behind the fact that the mother is always acting like the child, whereas the child acts like the grown up - forced to do so because of the way her mother acts. Patsy's main goal in life seems to make Saffy's life a living hell, and on the rare occasions that Edina shows love for her daughter, Saffy tries to hold onto as much of it as possible. June Whitfield as Edina's insane mother (whom she shows no love or affection to) and Jane Horrocks as Edina's ditzy office assistant Bubble add to the show's class, while making huge stars of the two.

Season 1 begins with the superb episode Fashion. The episode begins with Edina waking up - and all the perils she must endure to get dressed. She makes no cover up of trying to feel sorry for herself and complaining about anything and everything. She promises Saffy she won't get drunk when she goes out (again, another portrayal of how this is a reversal of what should actually be; the teenager promising the mother she won't get drunk). A fashion show is upcoming for Edina, and she must sort everything out.

I love this show, i think the writing is brilliant and i just love love love Jennifer Saunders. I watched the entire series on Amazon and the first five series on netflix when they were streaming it, i thought i knew every episode by heart ......until i caught this series on hulu ad free. The only episode amazon streams as is, is the first episode, for the most part they edit 2 to 3 minutes worth of material out of each episode. Had this been on network tv i would have understood why they did it, the cocaine, weed, ecstasy, and diet pills may not go well with some viewers. If you want to enjoy Absolutely Fabulous or any other british tv show as it was intended, buy your dvd directly from the uk.

Get ready, darlings, because the comedy masterwork from Jennifer Saunders is back and better than ever on DVD. This disc features all six episodes of Series One, digitally remastered and with a fair few extras.
FASHION - How should Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) prepare for their latest celebrity fashion show? How about starting with a glass of bolly or two?!
FAT - Edina's worst ememy Penny Caspar (Alexandra Bastedo) is coming to town, and she must lose weight, fast! Emergency lyposuction is needed!
FRANCE - The ideal getaway, but will Edina and Patsy get through customs with, er...their stash?
ISO TANK - Banned from attending Saffy's (Julia Sawalha) college open day, Edina sulks in her brand-new isolation tank. But she's got a few tricks up her Lacroix sleeves yet!
BIRTHDAY - The acursed day has arrvived, the dreaded 40th birthday for Edina! And Saffy has had the nerve to invite her two ex-husbands and their new spouses for a birthday lunch! It's a good thing Patsy will be there for "moral support".
MAGAZINE - Edina's estatic. She's got a new man and she's stayed out until morning. Patsy's pretty bloody jealous and she's got to go to work - if she can remember where her office is.
With June Whitfield (Mother), Jane Horrocks (Bubble), Mo Gaffney (Bo) and Dawn French (TV presenter).

What do you get when you put the worst of the 60's, 70's and 80's and set it in the 90's? Well it must be Absolutely Fabulous.

Fashion - We meet Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders), her daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalhia) and her best friend Patsy (Joanna Lumley). Edina and Patsy are putting on a fashion show (which we never see.)

Fat - An old chum, who is hyper critical, is visiting Edina. Edina is too fat and she will do anything to loose weight except diet or exercise.

France - Patsy and Edina are going to France on holiday but they don't speak French! When Saffy finds out that Bubble has received a notice that Edina needs to sign, they travel over. The four of them sharing the small cottage is just hilarious. But Patsy is in for the big shock when she returns home, she enjoyed ping pong without drugs!

Iso Tank - Hey, Edina is into every new fad and so she has bought an isolation tank. Saffy and her friends are getting ready for a school presentation. So Edina and Patsy decide to embarrass her by attending the presentation. Well Patsy is really after Saffy's hot study mate. At the school, the ladies are asked to meet with the headmaster and he turns out to be an old mate of the two.

Birthday - It's Eddie's 40th birthday --- do I need to say more. Well, the fun is we meet Eddie's two exes and their current mates. Mo Gaffney makes her first appearance and the mate of Eddie's first.

Magazine - Eddie has a boyfriend and Patsy is no longer the center of her life. So Patsy is determined to break them up but Saffy wants them stay together. We find out that Patsy actually has a job and we meet the members of the magazine.

DVD EXTRA: This disc has 16 minutes of outtakes.
