Disappointing, 15 October 2011
Author: markfranh from BC, Canada

My wife and I watched Absolutely Fabulous when it was first on and still watch it from time to time in reruns. We were always impressed with Lumley's acting as the bimbo-like character Patsy. Unfortunately, after watching the first two episodes of this series, we discovered that it wasn't acting at all; she was just being herself. We gave up about half way through the Sudan when we just couldn't take any more of her antics.

If she wasn't bad enough, we spotted 3 errors of fact in the presentation during the first episode alone, one of which was repeated in the second episode. The people doing the research needed to do some basic fact checking before giving Lumley the script.

Michael Palin, where are you when we need you?
