    Sketch Comedy at its Best!

    French & Saunders play upon everyone and everything in every sketch they do and they do them well!! Even if you are not British, the humor is usually obvious enough that if you don't understand the inuendo of some of the remarks, or even the accent, you will still be laughing outloud. If you like AbFab, you MUST own French & Saunders. Its hilarious to see some of the other actors and actresses in these sketches that begin, return and you wonder if there really is and end at all.......

    Now You Can See All The American DVDs, So Far...

    For the first time ever, the entire DVD collection of 'French and Saunders' can be purchased with all six volumes of the series as of yet. Originally only four DVDs, but soon to be six, who knows how many more the BBC could bring out on DVD? This set includes: At the Movies, Gentlemen Prefer French and Saunders, Living in a Material World, Ingenue Years, Back with a Vengance, and On the Rocks. Don't hesitate buying this entire set, it is worth it: no matter what the sticker price!
