Description du produit
Features every episode from the first series of the television comedy which follows the fortunes of Eddie and Patsy. 'Fashion', 'Fat', 'France', 'Iso Tank', 'Birthday' and 'Magazine'...
Absolutely Fabulous was first broadcast in 1992 and became an instant hit. Originally a sketch on the French and Saunders Show, Jennifer Saunders saw its potential and created one of the most ground-breaking and debauched comedies on British TV. Centred around the hip London fashion scene the series follows Edina (Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley), two women who refuse to grow up and are constantly on a mission to lose weight, gorging themselves with cocaine and/or champagne, endlessly throwing parties (or throwing up at parties), and sporting outrageous outfits which were the height of fashion at the time--honestly sweetie! The superb comic performances offered star status to Julia Sawalha as Edina's straight-laced daughter and Jane Horrocks as the sublimely dippy Bubble, and re-invented the careers of Joanna Lumley and June Whitfield. Saunders meanwhile secured her status as one of the top female comedians Britain has ever produced. Although its consciously chic clothing looks a little dated now, its mad characterisations endure and the jokes remain as hilariously slick and apt as ever.
Ab Fab remains a landmark in TV since it was the first time that female comedians and writers had had the freedom and exposure to satirise problems close to their own heart, from their own perspective. With Feminist writers claiming that the ideals of feminism were dead in the 1990s and that female concerns were moving in the wrong direction--towards the "Laddette Culture"--and reports claiming that careers were taking a central role, forcing motherhood onto the back-burner, the series sought to embody and satirise these new supposedly "female" characteristics. As the show continued to grow in popularity both in Britain and the States, plans were made to transfer the formula to America. However, as with many other great British series, the content was considered too risky for American audiences due to the amount of sex and drug references. Thus domestic audiences breathed a sigh of release that their beloved Ab Fab would forever stay British to the core. --Nikki DisneyVoir l'ensemble des Descriptions du produit

I want to return it or get my money back very badly. This is just a rip-off.
Season 1 begins with the superb episode Fashion. The episode begins with Edina waking up - and all the perils she must endure to get dressed. She makes no cover up of trying to feel sorry for herself and complaining about anything and everything. She promises Saffy she won't get drunk when she goes out (again, another portrayal of how this is a reversal of what should actually be; the teenager promising the mother she won't get drunk). A fashion show is upcoming for Edina, and she must sort everything out. The show is a success, and to celebrate Edina gets drunk with Patsy - much to her daughter's disappointment, though it comes as no surprise. Fat is the second episode and another good one. Edina's worst enemy Penny Caspar is arriving in town and she must lose weight fast! Emergency lyposuction is essential, and the dream scenes are hilarious! In the episode France, Edina and Patsy take a break from the fashion world and take a trip to France. But problems back home with Edina's ditzy assistant Bubble force her to return home, but they are held up in the airport - and is the substance Patsy bought drugs?!
Iso Tank is another one of the highlights of Series 1. Banned from attending Saffy's college open day on DNA, Edina sulks in her brand new isolation tank - for around 30 seconds with Patsy! The operative word being "isolation"! Edina's way of getting through to her daughter and letting her go to this DNA open day is to adopt a Romanian baby! Patsy's comment to Edina when she sees Saffy at home is, "Oh my God! There's something horrible on the stairs!" Magazine is another classic episode of the show, where Edina is ecstatic with her life. She's got a new man and she stayed out until morning. Patsy's jealous and ends up appearing on television with the presenter (Dawn French) talking about fashion make-overs. But first, she has to find two victims to dress up. The final episode Birthday is another excellent one. It's Edina's 40th birthday, and she feels awful. Saffy has the nerve to invite Edina's two ex-husbands and their new love interests for a meal. Edina is so ungrateful in this episode, and is another perfect example of just how self-centered she really is. Saffy slaps her mother around the face for acting this way, yet Edina's only response is, "Did you just hit me, darling? It's illegal, isn't it?!" This scene (where Saffy's cooking dinner with her apron on, while Edina is crying like a little baby) is just hilarious.
OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
Series 1 of Absolutely Fabulous is absolutely superb, with countless laughs, gags and outrageous situations. The success of the show is well deserved, and spawned a nationwide catchphrase of "Sweetie, darling!" Series 2, 3 and 4 are all superb - but Series 1 is the one you should be watching if you want to be an avid fan of this amazing and ground-breaking British comedy!
FASHION - How should Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) prepare for their latest celebrity fashion show? How about starting with a glass of bolly or two?!

FRANCE - The ideal getaway, but will Edina and Patsy get through customs with, er...their stash?

BIRTHDAY - The acursed day has arrvived, the dreaded 40th birthday for Edina! And Saffy has had the nerve to invite her two ex-husbands and their new spouses for a birthday lunch! It's a good thing Patsy will be there for "moral support".
MAGAZINE - Edina's estatic. She's got a new man and she's stayed out until morning. Patsy's pretty bloody jealous and she's got to go to work - if she can remember where her office is.

France - Patsy and Edina are going to France on holiday but they don't speak French! When Saffy finds out that Bubble has received a notice that Edina needs to sign, they travel over. The four of them sharing the small cottage is just hilarious. But Patsy is in for the big shock when she returns home, she enjoyed ping pong without drugs!
Iso Tank - Hey, Edina is into every new fad and so she has bought an isolation tank. Saffy and her friends are getting ready for a school presentation. So Edina and Patsy decide to embarrass her by attending the presentation. Well Patsy is really after Saffy's hot study mate. At the school, the ladies are asked to meet with the headmaster and he turns out to be an old mate of the two.
