Eight more episodes from Jennifer Saunders' satire on the world of magazines and fashion. Edina (Jennifer Saunders) is now a celebrity PR guru, and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) her 'style consultant'. In 'Cleanin'', Saffy (Julia Sawalha) returns from her travels in Iraq with some exciting news: she is pregnant. In 'Book Clubbin'', Patsy and Edina start a book club, and Edina is thrilled to discover that her grandchild is going to be mixed-race: the ultimate fashion accessory. In 'Panickin'', Edina has a panic room installed in her house - and manages to get locked inside it with Patsy. In 'Huntin', Shootin' and Fishin'', Edina and Patsy go away on a posh country house weekend that Edina won at auction. Saffy's baby is on its way in 'Birthin''. In 'Schmoozin'', Edina has a new boyfriend who, to her delight, works at Abbey Road Studios - until Patsy, in a drunken stupor, tapes over a priceless lost Beatles recording... In 'Exploitin'', Patsy and Edina 'borrow' Saffy's new baby girl, Jane, for a fashion shoot. In 'Cold Turkey', Edina spends Christmas at home - much to Saffy's annoyance, while Patsy ends up in hospital on a cocktail of drugs.
Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley return to create more excessive substance and human abuse in another season of Absolutely Fabulous. The BBC series has become a perverse favorite all over the world as Edina and Patsy continue in their inspired comedic debauchery. This season features eight new episodes with guest appearances by stars Kristin Scott-Thomas, Elton John, Minnie Driver, and Jean-Paul Gaultier.

"Cleanin'" - With Saffy gone on a long-overdue holiday, Patsy and Eddy have the house to themselves, though curiously it isn't everything they imagined it would be. Eddy has moved her PR business into her living-room, with several high-profile new clients on the books including Emma Bunton. Suddenly Saffy returns..with an announcement that will send Eddy's world into a tailspin.
"Book Clubbin'" - Eddy and Patsy's little book club meets to discuss their latest selection, an abridged mini version of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', though Mariella Frostrup fails to bring her celebrity pals. Meanwhile Saffy invites her boyfriend around to break the big news.
"Panickin'" - Eddy installs a panic room, whilst Patsy tries to get chummy with Minnie Driver. Real panic ensues when a lockdown occurs leaving Eddy and Patsy trapped in the high-tech fortress, leaving Minnie in the 'capable' hands of Bubble.
"Huntin' Shootin' Fishin'" - Eddy is doing some Royal PR so she and Pats decide to travel down to the country to see how the other half live. Saffy holds her baby shower with Emma Bunton and her ever-bizarre old school friend Sarah (aka 'Titty KaKa')
"Birthin'" - Saffy has gone into labour, ruining Patsy's expensive outfit when her water breaks. Marshall and Bo stop by for another strange interlude, whilst Katy Grin has been cast as Roxie Hart in 'Chicago'.
"Schmoozin'" - The lost Beatle tapes have been found, and Eddy's in love again, this time with an old school flame. Patsy's old sex films get released by a Japanese company including 'Boobarella'.
"Exploitin'" - Patsy has signed up baby Jane (or Lola) with an infant modelling agency, and a job has come up for a Jean Paul Gautier photo shoot at the zoo. The only problem is getting around Saffy...
"Cold Turkey" - Christmas has come again, and this time Eddy's staying home with the family. Patsy, in a moment of sheer rage, finally lets Eddy have it before mysteriously passing out. In the hospital, Patsy is told she is dying. Her wayward sister Jackie comes to visit, but does she have a more sinister motive? Is this really the end for Pats....?
AB FAB finally raises the bar after the lacklustre Series 4. Once again Jennifer Saunders has given us a hilarious, laughter-filled ride. Longtime fans rejoice: Series 5 is one to treasure!
Starring Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks and June Whitfield. Guest starring Kate O'Mara as Jackie, Elton John, Clarissa Dickson Wright, Kristen Scott Thomas, Mariella Frostrup, Emma Bunton, Minnie Driver, Jean Paul Gautier and Naoko Mori as Sarah.
But I was wrong. The fifth season of AbFab is quite simply the best set of episodes yet. Saunders creative genius has kicked in once more and the treading water and re-visiting old ground and old jokes of the last season has given way to a new direction for all the characters and the best laughs to date. I can hardly believe that any series in its twelfth year could possibly exceed all that has gone before. But it has.
Whereas all the characters in the 4th season had stagnated and seemed rudderless, they've all moved on to new comic heights and been given situations hitherto unexplored. Saffy in particular is in a situation that could never have been envisaged back at the start in 92 and Edina and Patsy have evolved into even more outrageous pastiches of themselves. Saunders' incisive eye for the ridiculousness of current trends and fashions has returned in full and everything from fake tans, false boobs, celebrity greed, panic rooms and the tedium of reality TV are all ruthlessly explored and viciously exposed with the most cutting humor possible. I won't give anything away, but the fifth episode of the season for me is the single best episode of the entire AbFab canon. I've seen it about a dozen times now and still laugh out loud.
There are a few weaknesses; the celebrity guests playing themselves just can't match the skill of the regular cast. The possible exception being Minnie Driver who steals the show in episode 3. Alas, Elton John, Mariella Frostrup and Emma Bunton seem quite uncomfortable in their roles. Kristen Scott-Thomas' character is just horribly conceived. I'm not sure I totally like the direction Bubble (played so wonderfully by Jane Horrocks) has taken either, but she's still worth many laughs along the way. Kate O'Mara returns as Patsy's hideous sister Jackie, but misses the mark somewhat and her scenes with Patsy end up rather confused.
What may well irritate those American viewers who had access to the UK tapes is that not only has the title vocal by Debbie Harry had to be eliminated, but the ecstasy induced excerpt from `Chicago' in `Birthin' has also had to hit the cutting room floor. Both due to copyright issues. Contrary to other reviews, the UK broadcasts do NOT exceed 30 minutes and the `Chicago' scene is the only cut. The exception being the final episode `Cold turkey' which was extended to 40 minutes and is included in it's entirety. Not many extras on this disc set other than some still photos and 15 minutes of terrific out takes. Unlike the fourth season, alas there is no commentary from Saunders. The picture quality is excellent and both discs contain 4 episodes each. I'm still not sure I would want to see a season 6. You just never know when you're pushing your luck. But if this season is anything to go by it will be well worth finding out.
