      Season 3 – Absolutely Fabulous

      1995 Comedy List
      Reviews 96% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score A show brilliant in its uncensored bad behavior and satirical humor, this series features Edina and Patsy, two hard-drinking, drug-taking, completely and outrageously selfish middle-aged women. Their cruel humor focuses on the hypocrisy of today's society, much to the chagrin of Edina's more moral and conservative daughter, Saffron. Read More Read Less Watch on Peacock Stream Now

      Previous Lauren Carroll Harris Guardian Season 3 sees [Absolutely Fabulous's] satire of the fashion and PR industries sharpen, with a cameo by Naomi Campbell, and the show's worldview -- of cynical, negative malevolents -- remains gloriously amoral. Aug 5, 2019 Full Review John J. O'Connor New York Times Played respectively by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, the middle-aged scamps, thoroughly trend-drenched and fashion-obsessed, are as perfectly awful and hilarious as ever. Sep 18, 2018 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly As always, Saunders is heroic in her slapstick self-abasement, and Lumley is extraordinary as a pained, haughty beauty gone to glorious seed. A- Mar 30, 1995 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) "Absolutely Fabulous" is just that, sweetie dahling - an absolutely fabulous half hour of the sort you won't find on American television.
