tv: Absolutely Fabulous? — Absolutely NOT!

Sweetie, darling, this is simply NOT Absolutely Fabulous.

Kristen Johnston and Kathryn Hahn as the new Absolutely Fabulous stars next to Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley

Forget the threw up in my mouth line, I think I just felt a piece of my soul die. Celebuzz has photos from the filming of the American remake of Absolutely Fabulous. I love me some Kristen Johnston, but I simply can’t see her as Patsy. At the least, they could have called in Christine Baranski to channel Maryann Thorpe.

The entry also brings up something I’ve been wondering and waiting for…

Now onto the more distressing problem presented by these photos: There’s yet another British adaptation coming to Hollywood. The strike’s been over for a while, writers; time to get back to work, guys.

So true… so true. 😥

    I was just about to blog this. I can’t imagine how this could be at all entertaining. They tried to do a show loosely based on AbFab with Mary McDonnell and Jean Smart back in the 90s called High Society. It was wretched. I give it 2 episodes tops.

    I’m with you on the soul death and the Baranski. I saw her in the hall when I worked at the Kennedy Center and she was doing Mame – almost peed my pants.

    I agree. I don’t think Kristen will be snarky enough.

    Baransky would have been ideal, but I, too, have faith in Johnston. However, who the hell is Kathryn Hahn?

    Are they counting on fans hating the idea of a US remake as part of the promotional fuel? Any publicity is good publicity?
