When it was announced that landmark Britcom "Absolutely Fabulous" would make a comeback with three new episodes timed to coincide with the show's 20th anniversary, fans worldwide shrieked with joy -- and for good reason. Since it debuted in 1991, no show has come close to parodying the fashion industry and its aversion to political correctness with such glee and rapid-fire wit. The trio of specials (the first two of which already aired on BBC America -- the last has been timed to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics) reunites the entire principal cast, including bitchy PR exec Edina (Eddy) Monsoon (series co-creator Jennifer Saunders), her long-suffering daughter Saffy (Julia Sawalha) and her stick-thin, pill-popping best friend Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley). If the new episodes are any indication, Edina and Patsy haven't changed. 20 years on and they're still boozy, self-righteous, indulgent and outspoken. In other words: absolutely fabulous. »
