Still fabulous darlings, never fear!
on 25 July 2012
Its been seven years since we last saw these fun loving fashionistas and within that time a LOT has changed. I won't give too much away as that would spoil purchasing the DVD, but I will say that when I saw all three episodes air on television, they made me laugh out loud at the sheer pantomine antics of the whole gang! Yes, Abfab is 20 years old - and what annoyed me is that the critics failed to see on the last episode Olympics, that this is in fact a reality for the characters. Eddy's permanant struggle with her age and spirit, Saffy's reluctant acceptance of her past and trying to contemplate a future for her and her daughter Jane (Lola) who's now seven years old, and Patsy - who has had to deal with not only her incredible age being revealed but also issues that some, not all, women of her age have to deal with!! Throughout all, for me each episode stands on it's own with it's own merit and could have easily been straight from a previous series, which surely is a good thing? I love Abfab. It reminds me of a time when comedy did'nt have to rely on 'reality style camera filming', where an audience is present and it follows a format that I and the 7+million viewers clearly enjoyed. Jennifer has never relied on critical observation, she's been true to herself and the fans by writing Abfab at 20 at its most racous, entertaining best. BRING ON THE MOVIE IN 2013!!
