Ab Fab, the brilliant British sitcom created by Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French, has yet to have  been knocked off its pedestal of comedic genius. Not since maybe Lucy and Ethel were on TV has there been a female buddy sitcom this good, not to mention a million times more dysfunctional. Read More
