Ab Fab – should they quit while they’re ahead?

04 January 2012

It was the most anticipated TV moment of Christmas. After 20 years, Edina and Patsy returned to our TV screens in brand new episodes of Absolutely Fabulous, one of our favourite ever shows.

The terrible twosome hadn’t changed a bit – even if everything around them had. Patsy’s beehive was as rigid as ever (possibly due to the stash of narcotics hidden in it) while Eddie was still more immature than her jailbait daughter Saffy. Naturally Bubble was as mad as ever.

The first episode had a dream sequence featuring The Killing’s Sarah Lund and a classic Ab Fab moment when Patsy mistook her Stella McCartney clutch for a mobile. The second –shown on New Year’s Day – featured cameos from Emma Bunton and Lulu, as Eddie’s only remaining PR clients. A third is due to be aired later this year.

And it doesn’t stop there. This week, Jennifer Saunders tweeted that she’s hoping to make an Absolutely Fabulous movie next year. Eddie and Pats take on Hollywood? Now that, we’d like to see.

But, not everyone was impressed with the comeback, with some on Twitter and Facebook saying the show had lost its spark.

We want to know what you think. Did you watch the new episodes of Ab Fab? If so, which was your favourite? And what about the film - do you want to see Patsy’s beehive on the big screen? Or is it time for her and Eddie to hang up their vintage Lacroix for good? Let us know.
