"Ab Fab" is the hottest thing on television!!
4 February 2002 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I have to be honest and say that i have never heard of this show before Comedy Central put it on their station in November. I watch One episode, and i was converted to Ab Fab since then. I always watch Patsy and Edina on Mondays at 9, and pretty soon i will be getting the DVD.

This show is really amazing. It has more to it then them getting drunk and acting stupid, it has clever lines and jokes i could never come up with. I envy Jennifer Saunders for her talent, she is absolutely funny and fabulous! So is Joanna Lumley. Shows like "Absolutely Fabulous" make me want to be from Britain because i have to say, that with the comedy they have their, we could not even compare to them.

Ab Fab is the one of the Best TV shows, EVER!!!!!!!! I hope that Patsy and Edina come back to treat us to more AB FAB!!!
