However, they've cut all the good stuff out! I am so disappointed in this compilation-- all of the drug use, and even the karaoke scene at the end of "Birthday" was cut, although it has nothing incendiary about it.
I want to return it or get my money back very badly. This is just a rip-off.
I love this show, i think the writing is brilliant and i just love love love Jennifer Saunders. I watched the entire series on Amazon and the first five series on netflix when they were streaming it, i thought i knew every episode by heart ......until i caught this series on hulu ad free. The only episode amazon streams as is, is the first episode, for the most part they edit 2 to 3 minutes worth of material out of each episode. Had this been on network tv i would have understood why they did it, the cocaine, weed, ecstasy, and diet pills may not go well with some viewers. If you want to enjoy Absolutely Fabulous or any other british tv show as it was intended, buy your dvd directly from the uk.
If you want to be in with the truly trendy and hip people who watch a lot of TV, then strut down the runway to Ab Fab. Season 1 is a good place to start for newbies. I actually feel superior to my American friends who have never heard of Jennifer Saunders or Joanna Lumley. It's like being a Wodehouse fan, terrific fun but it can be lonely. Ya, I'm a die-hard anglophile, but you don't have to be one to have a real blast watching Absolutely Fabulous and partying with Eddy and Patsy. Absolutely a classic British program with fabulous writing. I haven't seen the movie yet but I will. I know some of the stuff may miss but I'll enjoy every minute until I fall out of the car on the way home. Do watch this one, sweetie.
