Hideous!

All I can remember is thinking how pathetic this "Ab Fab" attempt was. Rip off the premise of a fantastic original show and tailor it to bad American sitcom tastes and you have .... a big flop. This was excruciatingly bad and painful to watch. Somehow the two stars obnoxious characterizations (an American sitcom staple) and attempts at being 'outrageous' (One of them took a valium!)came across as a sad attempt at fabulousness. If you want to have an outrageous fabulous show you hire fabulous actors and writers not 'family' show actors and writers. As of this writing there hasn't been any improvement in the sitcom world as executives cater only to what they think suburban people want to watch as if they're all backwards bumpkins. Thats why the original Ab Fab was such a big hit right?
