      Season 5 – Absolutely Fabulous

      2003 Holiday Comedy Special Interest List
      100% 5 Reviews Tomatometer 84% 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 Carina Chocano Los Angeles Times You can always count on "Absolutely Fabulous" to home in on the notable inanities of the day, like a wobbly pigeon with a crust in its cross-hairs. Sep 18, 2018 Full Review Alynda Wheat Entertainment Weekly But while Sex was a wry snapshot of urban single-womanhood, AbFab was an edgier, commit-to-the-joke sitcom that more than earned its laugh track. A- Sep 18, 2018 Full Review Sid Smith Chicago Tribune The performances of all the intrepid actresses of this piece remain unflagging and expert, though Lumley, whose Patsy always combines raucous slapstick with cool underplaying, is stretching here and there to preserve her one-of-a-kind acerbity. Sep 17, 2018 Full Review George Tiller PopMatters The fifth season and White Box make a fitting end to the fable that Absolutely Fabulous is but the moral of any fable isn't that enjoyable even if it is necessary and fitting. 9/10 Sep 18, 2018 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) It's decidedly bawdy and brash and certainly not family viewing. And you'd never invite Patsy and Eddy over to your place. But if you're looking for a laugh, this is absolutely still a fabulous show to watch. Sep 17, 2018 Full Review Next
