If you’re never seen an episode of Absolutely Fabulous, then shame on you.

You can find the entire series on Hulu, so take that blanket of shame and binge on one the greatest comedy duos of our time.

Jennifer Saunders is taking the show to the big screen, and in the film’s second official trailer (just released today), Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon find out that Kate Moss is looking for a new publicist.

So, Frick and Frack weasel their way into an A-List party to try and convince her to sign with Eddy.

The two unmade beds spot Lady Moss sitting on a rooftop perch, and make their move.

Downton Abbey imagined a world in which Lord Grantham (and his stupid decisions) didn’t exist, and I must say I much prefer order on the estate as opposed to what might have been.

In a parody produced by ITV to raise money for different charities, Lord Grantham receives a telegram confirming that yet another investment has gone sour.  He considers going for a drive to off himself, but is met by Patsy Stone the Angel (played by Joanna Lumley in a fantastic white pant suit).  Continue reading
