I love many British shows. Especially comedy series, from “Blackadder” and “Fawlty Towers” to “Gavin & Stacey” and, of course, “The Office.” But I’ve never been a fan of “Absolutely Fabulous.” When I was in college, my girlfriend made me watch countless episodes of “AbFab,” and while I could appreciate it, I didn’t particularly like it. But I know I’m in the minority on that, and I accept your scorn.

That being said, I have no doubt that Fox’s decision to remake the show is absolutely fucking terrible. I don’t care that Mitch Hurwitz is going to be an exec producer. I don’t care that a former “SNL” writer is writing the show and exec producing with Ian Moffitt and Jenifer Saunders. This was a bad idea when Roseanne tried to do it a week ago, it’s a bad idea now, and it’ll be a bad idea when I’m in my 40’s, boozing at 10:30 in the morning and yelling at my nerdy teenage daughter.
