    Did anyone else watch tonight's season premiere?:D I of course did, and absolutley loved it. I especially liked the part when Scott kind of became downhearted, but then how his spirit's were lifted by his employees.:cool:

    Ditto. There's been no news for months and months except for that it was renewed, and now the first episode already aired? Goddamn. *follows DC's trail.*

    Done, own the DVD's. I'm glad that this remake outing has chosen to make an effort to actually adapt and be funny, rather than just bank on the original series' success, like Men Behaving Badly, Coupling, etc. Who's bright idea was it to make a US version of Absolutely Fabulous without the drugs and alcohol? :rolleyes:

    Men Behaving Badly was fine until Eldard and Bateman left. Making Schneider's character the focus is what killed it for me.

    There's a US version of AbFab coming out?!? I figured it'd happen sooner or later.

    How'd it slip under my radar? What was it? Did they change the title completely or something? Who was in it?

    Roseanne (Barr/Arnold) acquired the American adaptation rights to Absolutely Fabulous but was unable to progress the idea, reportedly because the networks were unhappy with the notorious nature of the comedy.

    And although not officially a direct adaptation of AbFab, the US sitcom High Society (which ran on CBS for 13 episodes, from 30 October 1995 to 26 February 1996, before being cancelled) seemed to be based upon a similar premise.

    Missed the first episode, but saw last nights. I loved it:D


    I especially laughed when Dwight asked what a clitoris was:D

    Does anyone know if this will be six episodes like the first season (and the UK version) or if itll be longer?:confused:

    Well I hope it goes for a few more seasons than the UK version. Two seasons is too short, special or no special:(

    I think the original office is fairly perfect the way it is. The American Office is much episodic, and i think would be more suited to a longer run.

    That's just the mark of a good series. And We all know that The Office was a great one.
