as Patsy's Mum
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
