Re: Favourite special

Cold Turkey - my favourite AbFab episode ever. One of the many joys of Christmas is that I get to watch this special again. :wink:

Cold Turkey for me as well, though Gay makes a very good 2nd choice.

Re: Favourite special

Cold Turkey. I love it. <3 but the Last shout was close behind because it was the first one that I ever watched. But it had to be Cold Turkey because of Eddie and Patsy in the hosipital part. :happy:

Re: Favourite special

I agree that Gay would make a good second, but I wonder if anyone's going to vote for White Box. I don't often say this, but I wish they had not done that one. It felt like Jennifer was felt up with the whole thing, and it ruined the CT magic for me.

Re: Favourite special

White Box does have its funny moments, but it's nowhere near as good as any of the other specials, or the regular episodes for that matter.

I agree 100%. I loved Cold Turkey and added it to my annual Christmas viewing until I saw White Box, which totally shattered it for me. It just made out that all of the characters were set up for depressing and/or shallow lives, totally unwinding all the goodwill created by Cold Turkey--there was hope there. There was no hope in White Box. A real mistake. :no:

Re: Favourite special

I chose Cold Turkey just because we had that gorgeous part between Eddy and Patsy in the hospital...plus the sort of sweet part between Patsy and Saffy. Beyond that, it was just a really great show overall. Gay was a very, very, very close second though.

Exactly my reason for picking Cold Turkey too. :wink: I watched it the other day again, brilliant! (Christmas time, great excuse to rewatch the X-mas specials of all your favourite TV shows)

Some caps of the precious moment:

Re: Favourite special

I think that I want to change my mind from having having Cold Turkey to The Last Shout as my favourite.
Every time that I watch The Last Shout I always spot something new or hear something that they said that I never heard them say and it just make's me love it even more.
I love everything that happen's in it !! The part where Patsy wake's up and she is just a total mess, the gym part, where Eddie & Patsy smash up there holiday apartment, the whole planning for the wedding and where Patsy goes up to the bathroom and then the wedding itself. Haha yeah so I basically love it all !!
The Last Shout was the first Absolutely Fabulous that I ever watched so I am always going to have love for it.
I also love the outtake's for it too and it is a two parter which make's it even more fantastic !!
I still love Cold Turkey but I feel that The Last Shout is over running it. :happy: :happy:

Re: Favourite special

That's interesting, Becka! The Last Shout has always been my least favourite episode - it does have some great moments but I generally don't like the ''vibe'' of it. (yes, I'm aware this does sound very Patsyish hihi) I think part of that feeling comes from the way Saffy is treated in this episode: I never liked the Paulo figure and I felt rather sorry for her. Cold Turkey, on the other hand, was just one feel good special, showing just a little touch of kindness between Pats and Saffy.

I've changed the poll now, you can now change your vote. :wink:
