Fans of British television can often quote long lines of dialog verbatim from their favorite shows. The reason is, they've seen each episode many times. Even the most popular programs often only total a dozen or two episodes. Supposedly, it condenses all the goodness into six or eight episodes, rather than padding it out to 22 or 24 as we do in the States. They may have a point, and channels like HBO, AMC, Showtime and Starz have been running shorter seasons than the networks. But when you really like the show, it can be frustrating that there are so few episodes to watch.

Thankfully for fans, the classic series Absolutely Fabulous keeps coming back for more. Originally, it ran for three seasons. Then a fourth. Then some specials. Then a fifth. And there's more to come! And that's fabulous news, sweetie.
