Two brave British women aged in the champagne region.
Typecasting is not fair. You want people not to wish that they last forever and always through life to continue in the role of their life. Look at that poor Pol Goossens and how ‘the Franc’ to the endto him and his learning jekker sticking.

But bon, we must always be honest? And we may in a programme with Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders not a little hope at a comeback of their characters from Absolutely fabulous, British television series that ever so delicious, the dragon stuck with the women from the hip lifestylewereldje? Certainly, if the title of the program Absolutely champers ? And even more if this program last year and was made to mark the 25th anniversary of Ab fab? We should even then not have a little hope for a gullible comebackfeestje of the two funniest women in television history? Patsy and Edina so. And Boule et bill – nickname for the bottles of Bollinger, that the two just about anywhere with meesleurden. Should we?
No, apparently not. Absolutely champers follows the two ‘ladies’ on a trip through France, where they go in search of ‘the bubblesin bubbly“, but in a boring productfilm for champagne vent. It begins, however, not bad, with a”Cheers, thanks a lot, sweetie’, with that typical I-have-a-hot-potato-in-my-mouth-voice of Joanna Lumley. And her lazy sigh, ” That is as I in the morning’ – as the hydraulic suspension of their rented Citroën DS comes up. Or false teeth that they are on the train out of her handbag to her wijnproeversmondje to demonstrate.
But then it turns. Then, the two ever so politically oncorrecte women suddenly British ladies on age. Polite and civilized ladies in addition. Empathy they heave ‘oooooooh’s’ when a champagnemaker tells them that he already had forty years of organic work, without the least hint of irony, they dive under the vineyards to buckets full of bunches of grapes to pick, and slavishly walk them through the six-kilometre-long flessengang without even one bottle in their handbag to smuggle. When the grapes with bare feet crush, ” because grootmoedersbenen’ braafjes on the side instead of with a few silly dance steps on the druivenpulp to jump. And worse still, when at nine o’clock in the morning, a glass of champagne at the breakfast, speaks to Joanna, the most rolverwarrende words of all times: “I never thought that I ever had champagne for breakfast would drink’. The woman who as Patsy Bolly drank as if the Evian was, sure enough!
In the end, the two sipping a glass, musing on a avondterras. They talk about the prestige of champagne versus the authenticity of the champagnemakerij. About hairstyles that don’t know how they age. On the question of whether Pats and Edina still exist. They thought it would.
Oh well, maybe it would be pathetic to the two again to be who they were. Maybe also have two schertsfiguren right to dignified aging? Maybe we are just very hard in the expectation gap geduikeld?
Absolutely champers. Yesterday seen on One. Still watch it on vrt.now
