Our beloved Patsy and Edina are back with a new episode of Absolutely Fabulous to air on BBC America on January 8th! We've been hearing of the reunion for quite some time and are THRILLED with the news. Since originally airing 20 years ago (really? has it been that long?) 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. The entire cast is back, including Saffy, Bubbles and Edina's mother. No word yet on when the subsequent episodes will air (it seems like there may be 2 more) so we'll just have to pray to god (aka Marianne Faithfull) that they show up soon. Stay tuned here, you can be sure we'll be on the case like coke on Patsys' nose.
I think we can all let out a big sigh of relief knowing we get to see Eddie Monsoon and Patsy Stone pick up where they last left off. Break out the "Champers" and light one up for me!
