??? DIRECT Rip off. Don't know how they didn't get sued.
25 November 2018 | by polarity_picturesSee all my reviews

Did any other reviewer watch these shows and the Original ABFAB episodes??? I totally understand american's not having seen the abfab episodes when they orignally aired(as getting british tv in the 90's was limited to certain markets, actually still is, bbc/sky, ect don't license to broadcast there shows until a year later or so, meh). It's easy to see waht they copied and stole to create this series. Rosanne actually bought the rights to make a US version. Should have sued this show. if you take a reviewer now and show them abfab then show them this series they can easyly tell what's been stolen. bah......
