I've seen every ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS episode and special, except what is pretty much the official series finale, WHITE BOX.

From what I heard, Edina gets Bettina to do her kitchen. But Bettina has gone insane since she and Max broke up. What results from the kitchen makeover is a white box that doesn't even have a staircase. Saffron plans to walk down the aisle with John, but she bails out when she learns that he is a polygamist. And when Edina assaults baby Jane/Lola, it is the worst thing that she could have ever done to Saffron, and Saffron kicks out Edina and Patsy.

Does anyone have a more thorough synopsis of WHITE BOX?

That about sums it up pretty much. If "White Box" was a Series finale, then it was a piss poor one. It had it's moments but it wasn't that great.

Default Fox to redo 'Absolutely Fabulous'

Fox to redo 'Absolutely Fabulous'
Network taps Zander to adapt Saunders series
By CYNTHIA LITTLETON


Edina and Patsy are ready to take on L.A.
Fox is developing a redo of Jennifer Saunders' enduring Britcom "Absolutely Fabulous," to be exec produced by Mitch Hurwitz, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum for Sony Pictures TV, Tantamount and BBC Worldwide America.
Christine Zander ("Saturday Night Live") is set to write the script and will exec produce along with the BBC's Ian Moffitt and original series creator Saunders. Fox has given Sony a script order with hefty penalty attached.
The latest attempt at a U.S. rendition of "Ab Fab" will be transplanted to L.A. but retain the basic template of the original, revolving around the friendship of two boozy, over-40 best friends who are desperate to stay hip and youthful and who carry on under the disapproving eye of Edina's teenage daughter, Saffy.
More than a decade ago, Roseanne Barr worked on developing a U.S. version of the show with Carrie Fisher for ABC. CBS' 1995-98 Cybill Shepherd comedy "Cybill" had an "Ab Fab" flavor to it. Another short-lived 1995 sitcom, CBS' "High Society," starring Jean Smart and Mary McDonnell, was a thinly veiled imitation.
Original series starred Saunders and Joanna Lumley. It was a big hit in Britain and successful import for Comedy Central. In the U.K., "Ab Fab" ran as a regular series from 1992-95, with a two-part finale airing in 1996. Saunders and Lumley reunited for further adventures with fresh segs produced in 2001 and 2003.

What's your first? :-)

I did recently purchase the Abfab series on DVD after years of only seeing bits and bobs from it. And I found it a bit disappointing... not sure why exactly. I think that in the end I don't really care about any of the characters which means I don't really want to spend hours watching them.

Love AbFab. Not as keen on the later series, though.

Yes I love this show very much. However I do prefer her work onscreen with Dawn French.

I'm a French and Saunders fan myself. I think it's nice that seperately they made a mark for themselves though.

LOVE this show. I've seen all seasons and episodes so many times I can't even count, hehe. Eddie is my anti-hero and I, not so secretly, kinda want to be her

You know - I never could figure out why I couldn't get more excited about watching AbFab. I mean there are many funny moments and the acting is well executed, but????????? Dean has helped make it clear - not only about this show, but others. If I don't care about the characters, the show will not be one that I will become slightly fanatic about - like I am with AYBS and KUA. Thanks Dean for the epiphany!!

Check out the Ab Fab part of my site. I plan to add more wallies in the upcoming months. Possibly dig out some of my screensavers.
