In my pledge to throw a little fun into the mix, with a little more variety, here is one of my all time favorites. Absolutely Fabulous is one of the funniest sitcoms to air on either side of the pond in the last 20 years. It is, admittedly, an acquired taste. But after you're into it, you'll love it forever. Here are four clips to get you started.
They've tried to replicate it here in the US to no avail. You just cannot top Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, as Patsy and Edina: two over-the-hill substance abusers. Trust me, it really is funny!
#1 - Is it a bee? - Edina & Patsy can't quite figure out what that sound is.
#2 - Old - A future scene shows Edina & Patsy as old women.
#3 - New Year - The wonderful Bubble tries to figure out New Year's Eve.
#4 - Door Handle - Edina tries to find the perfect outfit to shop for a doorhandle.
