Absolutely Fabulous Returns!

January 9, 2012

Last night on BBC America we had the return of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ after an eight year hiatus. The hit BBC comedy first introduced us 20 years ago to nervous wreck Edina Monsoon, played by Jennifer Saunders, and her drugged-out gal-pal, Patsy Stone, played by Joanna Lumley. The series, known affectionately as ‘Ab-Fab’ to its fans, is back with three new episodes. So what happened in the first of these reunion shows last night?

Edina, or Eddy, wakes up late and after a crazy drive through London arrives to collect her daughter, Saffron, who has been released from prison after serving two years for passport fraud. If that isn’t nutty enough for you, Saffron invites one of her cell mates, Barron, to live with them after she is also released from prison. But the gang soon finds out that it is a big mistake, as Barron turns out to have been Patsy′s drug dealer to whom Patsy owes 50,000 English Pounds to. Barron expects to be paid either in cash, blood (killing Patsy) or sex with Saffron.

Luckily, Eddy’s mother, a kleptomaniac, just happens to have an old post office bank book from Patsy. With that document, Patsy is able to tap into her national pension and a bank account that has grown considerably over the many, many years. Barron is paid off and takes her leave. But now we have a new dilemma, drug-crazed Patsy has money to burn! What sort of trouble will she and Eddy get into next?

Tune into BBC America next Sunday evening at 10pm EST for another brand new episode of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’. The hit British comedy is back with three new episodes after an eight year hiatus. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are hysterical as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone. The funniest scene in last night′s episode was when they updated Eddy′s daughter, Saffron, with how the world was being taken over by the Kardashians. Break out the vodka and champagne! The ladies are back and Absolutely Fabulous!
