This was a great 30th anniversary celebration of French and Saunders on Christmas night 2017. An amusing look back at classic stuff, with new material mixed in. The Wonder Woman and 'Karcrashians' segments were pure bliss.
Caught the repeat the other night and agree the Karchrashians in particular was very funny. I didn't like the uneven mix of extremely brief flashes of their past sketches and very long new spoofs of Downton Abbey or whatever it was, mainly because the older stuff was much funnier and deserved the full sketch.
The longer the sketches, the more French outshines Saunders with her let's face it, much better acting. The shorter ones and those glimpses of past sketches suit Saunders better, she's very good at the funny facials but her acting has always been a bit peculiar, one dimensional and always appearing the same for whatever role. The prog showed they are still the best British female comedy act by miles, or at least no other act has yet surpassed their past output.
