From the very first episode it was clear that this was going to be a smash hit success. This classic British comedy series starred the highly talented writer and actress, Jennifer Saunders as Edina Monsoon, head of an incompetent fashion business.Also in the cast are Joanna Lumley as foul mouthed, chain smoking, Patsy Stone, Edina's so called best friend. It is interesting to see Lumley shed her previously squeaky clean, aristocratic image to play a character who's every other word is either a swear word or something blatantly vulgar. She is an absolutley essental part of the series as Saunders and Lumley sparkle together as a pair of drug taking, promiscuous pair of alcoholics. Also included are comedy veteran, June Whitfield who was renowned for her role in the sitcom, Terry And June and appeared in a handful of the Carry On films and finally Julia Sawahala as Edina's poor put upon daughter, Saffron who plays the character perfectly.
The series was a winner from its classic opening episode which set the tone for the rest of the series. The rollercoaster dialogue is full of inventive repartee and bubbles with razor sharp wit, making this one of the very best comedy programmes from Britain (if not THE best)! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 great episodes Sept. 3 2003
This videotape includes the first 3 episodes from the hilarious first season of ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.
"Fashion" - Meet Edina Monsoon; fashion doyenne and PR Manager supreme. She's on her way to yet another celebrity show, with her boozy best mate Patsy Stone...
"Fat" - Huge crisis! Eddy's arch-rival Peggy 'The Stick' Caspar is coming for a long-overdue visit and Eddy simply isn't thin enough! Time for drastic measures...
"France" - Eddy and Patsy have had enough of London. Time for some rest and relaxation in the rustic vineyards of gay Paree...
Starring Joanna Lumley, Jennifer Saunders, Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield, Jane Horrocks and Alexandra Bastedo.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S MADE ME A FAN! Jan. 25 2002
I had heard quite a bit of the series and decided to check it out of curiousity and time on my hands. I borrowed the first episode of the video series and was just dumbfounded by what I was watching. Curiously I continued on to the next episode and found myself getting really into it all with all the delightful controversy and bluntness being thrown at me as a viewer. By the 3rd episode on the tape, I was hooked, a junky, I needed more AbFab and raided all of the tapes in the series from the person I borrowed the first one from. Then I bought my own in a complete set with an extra bonus tape included. ....
