| Probably one of the most brilliant shows ever written!!
As if Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders weren't already brilliant enough with their own comedy show, Absolutely Fabulous and The Vicar Of Dibley - this little treasure was made in the late 90's.

I didn't discover it until about 10 years ago but I cannot stop re-watching these episodes. French and Saunders do what they do best! Play on words, sexuality, history, periods and costumes etc etc etc.

Absolutely brilliant. So many double meanings and references you get something new each time you watch it - combined with a brilliant cast with an impeccable comical timing that I haven't seen since the John Cleese days.

If you enjoy British comedy of all styles this is a MUST. And if you don't like this type of comedy, watch it anyway - just for the sheer genius of these women and this over-the-top crazy show that still has me rolling on the floor.
