Sweetie darlings!

After too many years away (and two years in the clink for Saffy), the British boozebags of Absolutely Fabulous returned last night to clink cheers to their 20th anniversary of La Croix and high-grade pharmaceuticals with the first of three special episodes. And it is so bloody Fabulous to have them back.

Last seen in 2004, Pats and Eddy now have a whole new world of pop culture to clown on, be it the Kardashians, Twitter or the original Danish version of The Killing, which were all skewered during last night's episode, amid the patently cheeky cocktail of unfortunate fashion choices, drug references and age-denial gags we've come to expect from the Stoli-swilling Laverne & Shirley from across the pond. Which is a good thing, since the main plot — Saffy's prison BFF turned out to be the drug dealer Pats stiffed years earlier — wasn't as "insta-classic" as some past Abs. Still, it was a hoot to behold the old girls getting back into the groove of behaving badly and we can't wait to see what they will get into (couture and storyline-wise) when BBC America and Loga air the second and third specials later this year.

Were you completely daft over the duo's return?
