Intern Bren’s Team Pick:
Sweetie darlings! Pull up a bean bag chair and crack open a bottle of bubbly because there is much cause for celebration in the New Year! The best British export since Wham! is coming back to a retangular viewing surface near you. Absolutely Fabulous is returning to BBC America on January 8th!
That’s a long time, though, right? It’s several days. In this age of ever diminishing short attention spans that’s like at least a fortnight. Never fear my little Impatients (it’s a flower, look it up). Queerty has found the entire episode ready for your viewing pleasure right this very minute. Which is good because Saffy’s been in prison! I for one can’t wait days to find out if she had a little Bette-and-the-Carpenter action behind bars.
I don’t know about you, but I can never watch just one episode of Ab-Fab. It’s like the Lay’s potato chips of television or something, which is why I have every season on VHS. That’s right, VHS. I like to have a mini-marathon whenever I’m feeling homesick because Edina Monsoon reminds me of my mom, only my mom is sober, slightly more insane and has a tiny Chihuahua instead of a Patsy. BUT, I don’t have to dig out those VHS tapes and somehow remember how to hook up the VCR to the TV without disconnecting the cable or the GameCube because BBC America has a New Year’s Day Marathon!
So cancel your aromatherapy, psychotherapy, reflexology, osteopath, homoeopath, naturopath, crystal reading, shiatsu AND your organic hairdresser cause Edie and Pats are on!
