This time round, I got 2.
Am I the only one here who thought Absolutely Fabulous was utterly fucking terrible?

My in-laws adore AbFab,
but then they also enjoy Last Of The Summer wine, so their judgement is not to be trusted.

My mum was crazy about it when it was on the first time round. She kept reciting the 'jokes' to me on the assumption that I had somehow not understood them. No, actually, I get the premise on which this brainless attempt at humour is supposed to be based. The reason I am not laughing is that it is not funny.

I'm not convinced that Jennifer Saunders has ever been funny.

I feel genuinely blessed never to have seen that.
Everything about it makes it sound like an early '70s sitcom written by a moron.

Written for morons.
Credit where it's due, they certainly understand their audience.

It has that vibe
You could maybe lie to yourself and pretend that it's being ironic.

Yeah I think that would involve feeling uncomfortably close to a character from 'Nathan Barley'.

Don't you get it, Two Hats?
Mrs Brown, right - ha, you'll never believe this! Mrs Brown - hahaha, oh you'll love this! Mrs Brown - haha - Mrs Brown is actually a bloke! Haha haha! Once you realise this, it all becomes so much funnier.

I wasn't fussed about it when I was younger
I've found as I've got older I'm still not fussed about it

Reminds me of my mum, again,
talking about the dreadful creaky middle-of-the-road music she used to listen to on a semi-permanent basis. "You'll like it when you're older.". No. No, I won't.

( I fall under the blobbing birds and poofters category mind)
