    Alright, I had the TV on Comedy Central and was in the other room and there was a commercial on. I wasn't paying attention but then I heard, something like, "Absolutely Fabulous, this fall with all new episodes."
    Ummm, I'm confused, is this the same show as the British show or is this some American version? Anyone know anything about this?

    I assume the Ab Fab shows they are refering to are the new episodes which just aired on BBC1 in the UK, so yes this is the British show and they are new episodes.
    Having said that, they have been quite heavily critised in the UK press (although I personally never saw them) and even Jennifer Saunders admitted they weren't up to the quality of the previous episodes.
    I hope that this answers your query.

    Ok thanks. For some reason I thought I read the show ended after the third series but I guess not.

    It did, but like most things in tv land, it came back from the dead.

    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.

    I also heard that Canada will be airing the episodes before they air in the US.

    Well, a part of me is thankful for new episodes and another part says if they're worse than what's the point?
    I fell in love with this show on Comedy Central a few years back. It took me a few days to even understand them! [​IMG]
    I'm looking forward to seeing some of these new episodes!
