One nice thing about DVDs is that those of us who don’t have cable can watch TV series without the commercials. Sure you have to wait a few years but DVDs make it possible for us to see them.
I’ve been watching Absolutely Fabulous DVDs over the past couple of weeks and have really enjoyed how totally bizarre and politically incorrect the story and characters are.
Every episodes was written by Jennifer Saunders. The series was produced by Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French who have a long history in British comedy.
My favorite episode is the second program on the Series Two DVD. It’s called “Death” and it has Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders), Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) and the gang all dealing with the death of Edina’s father. The final scene is so funny that ironically I thought I might die from laughing. I woke up the next morning and I was still laughing about it.
