Some "first episode stiffness," but a fun introduction
6 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Fashion" is the first episode, and we are introduced to the main characters: Edina, Patsy, and Saffron. Bubble, Edina's assistant, is also introduced. There isn't much plot to "Fashion," but extra plot could have possibly ruined the introduction of the characters. In this episode Edina has some pre-fashion show anxiety. Saffron won't help Edina with the show, and is more concerned with her mother's heavy drinking. Patsy comes through for Edina, and the two are off to the fashion show. They are both quite drunk after the show, and Edina is briefly locked out of her house. Mrs. M. is introduced via flashback. We learn Edina has a son named Serge. He is often mentioned during the history of the show, which creates a long-running joke. Serge is always reported to be busy in some far away and unusual place, and it seems he won't come back home to visit his mum. "Fashion" does have some "first episode stiffness" here and there (which is something I've noticed before in first episodes of other television programs), but it makes a good introduction to the series.
