Ab Fab (the 2nd week review)...
Much better this week. Maybe my expectations weren't so high but I actually think the jokes were funnier and the plot better too. This week's episode was called 'Fish Farm'. Edina returns from a Marilyn Manson concert, and spies a handsome young man Jago (Crispin Bonham-Carter) working up a sweat in her garden the following morning. Patsy immediately recognises him as the younger brother of a well-known aristocrat, and Eddy sets about a vigorous pursuit of her potential suitor, hoping that her dreams of a life of luxury will soon be realised. Meanwhile, Mother is also busy flirting wildly. Though she now has a job on the Harry Potter film.
Some of the old magic was back. Sadly no Jane Horricks this week but you can't have everything.
Eddy: "We're going to New York this week"
Saffy: "I didn't think they let people in with a drugs conviction"
Eddy: "Darling, it's not a conviction"
Patsy: "Just a firm belief!"
Another good line:
Patsy : "Keep your face away from me and your (she coughs) hair!"
Saffy : "My hair isn't anywhere near you"
Patsy: "Your face hair!"
(Incidentally we get Will & Grace straight after Ab Fab on Friday nights. Is it me or is Will & Grace really tired? And I've only seen three episodes of that show)
