Fleabag is a hilarious and poignant window into the mind of a dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman, as she hurls herself at modern living in London. Award-winning playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge writes and stars as Fleabag, an unfiltered woman trying to heal, while rejecting anyone who tries to help her and keeping up her bravado all along.

One of the best shows of 2016
Verified purchase
One of the funniest shows I've seen all year. I binge watched it. Obviously if you're going to get upset with graphic jokes about anal intercourse then this is not the show for you but if you want to see something funny, dark, feminist, poignant and with a brilliant star turn from Olivia Coleman then you'll probably like it.
My other favourite shows of this year include Stranger Things, The Get Down, Fargo, Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmi Schmidt and Narcos - if you liked those we have similar taste and you might like this.

Too vulgar. Didn't watch very long. Any show that has to use casual anal sex to get your attention sure looses mine.

Funny and Savage and Real All In One Show
Verified purchase
I didn't really want to like this show, but I thought, "Well, there's nothing better on." And then I was charmed by the lead character, who never really has a name in the series. She's bright, funny, pretty, and covering up a mountain of pain that her family and those around her do nothing to alleviate with a sarcastic whit and humor that is both funny and at times slightly terrifying by parts.

The thing is this show is probably more honest about those "perfect" families that look so good to outsiders. Something a guy she's dating even comments on at one point and she, much like me, just gives him a look like, "Yeah? If you only knew how totally fracked these people all are you'd be running away screaming." Or at least that's what I'd was thinking, and she probably was too.

I won't go into it any further or any spoilers except to say what starts out as a bright, funny lark of a show turns dark and then darker still as the cracks begin to show. You are by turns infuriated and laughing at her and with her, and by the end you just hope she'll simply disappear into the London fog leaving her absolutely terrible damaged beyond all belief family and friends and just get out of there, find someplace to breath, and repair her life.

I'm hoping for more and I'd like to see her find a good place for herself, but since this isn't a show that pretends in Hollywood endings we may not get that. Instead what we will get is probably the sort of raw honesty and the light and dark that life really is made up of in the form of some amazingly talented people telling the story that people all around us live every single day of their lives.

And I think we need more of that, so I'm going to pray for a Season 2 and now find anything that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has ever starred in or done, because I am a complete and total fan of hers now. Something that just doesn't happen too often.

Not my sort of entertainment. Immature people reveling in being out of control and mean-spirited.

Fleabag is Deceptively Good
Verified purchase
What starts out as a possibly British “Sex in the City,” grows into something vastly more substantial through the 6 episode story arc. We watch Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) tumble thru her chaotic early 30’s life and her bedding with seemingly random men. From the beginning, our heroine breaks the 4th wall and speaks directly to us by providing commentary on everything from the sexual encounter she is engaged in (while she is engaged in it) to explanations of her past and family. To be fair, this is initially distracting and her numerous sexual romps, early in the story, made me feel like this was all wafer thin and possibly exploitive. Still I found myself rooting for Fleabag, partly on the basis of the quirkiness of the character and for Phoebe Waller-Bridge deadpan, smart ass and tender performance.

As the story evolves, and through Fleabag’s asides to us, a fuller picture of her life and the people she shares it with are revealed. While the humor continues throughout, the story line becomes increasing edgy and complicated over time. This is an extremely well written, thoughtful and cleverly shot series. I watch the entire first season in a single sitting. I don’t want to reveal too much other than to say that what starts out as a light, modern comedy develops into a much deeper, human and ultimately satisfying story of the life of a young woman.

Definitely worth a watch.

Disturbing series

Don't need to watch sad individuals on TV. I can go downtown and watch people struggling with life. Sad show really. Disturbing.

No, not a "Girls" like show - much better and sharper.
Verified purchase
Funny, sad, and like a lot of biting humor - the funny bits are actually the sad bits as well.
Many years ago, a critic (forgotten who) noted that the American TV comedy Cheers was the first really successful show where none of the characters were fundamentally likable - all were very flawed, some pretty badly. Fleabag is a very modern comedy - it finds laughs in the awkward silent moments of discomfort between strangers, families and friends. Manners, politeness and all the other parts that fit as the veneer of life allow ways to fill in those moments and to carry on. The creator and star clearly understands this. There is a a strong modern feminist theme (what it means to be a modern educated sort of well off woman in London, well may not well off, but not poor, or at least not on the dole) but really that is just a part of the tale. All of the little bits (no spoilers but there seems to be a throw away gag when our lead character goes jogging in a cemetery) but later one realizes that it fits into the whole story. It is really a story of mistake and regret. A great work.

For the optimists the ending is a hopeful one - that perhaps people can learn to forgive others and themselves and move on. I suspect this was added on to leave the door ajar for a sequel.

A Revolution and a Revelation
Verified purchase
It's not every day you get to witness truly courageous filmmaking, but this is it. Fleabag is an odd series, just six episodes long, with quirky story lines and in-your-face sexual humor. Neither of those things is all that unusual today; the series is remarkable for a different reason. We're all used to characters who are modeled seemingly through focus testing. In Fleabag the main character, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is that rare character who is not only sympathetic but truly culpable. As she stumbles headlong through a life filled with sexual misadventures and deep sadness, including the loss of the two people in the world who truly loved her, she encounters characters who don't understand her and with whom she must try to manage critical relationships that require more self-knowledge and navigating skill than either she or her boyfriend/father/sister/friends have at their disposal. While she craves raw physicality and the psychic safety of superficial love, we are given constant reminders of her need to connect deeply with people who know her and love her. Without giving away the critical plot point the series leads up to in starts and stops, the series bares the main character's soul to us, revealing a human being who does bad things, who has committed what some might consider unpardonable offenses and who still yearns for a place in the world where she's safe and where she matters. In the end, one is left wondering if she can muster the courage to allow herself to risk everything in trusting others, even when they have exposed themselves as being as deeply flawed as she is. Easy answers, there's not a one. It's all about the hard truths, and not the Hollywood kind. The ones that will resonate with those parts of us we want to share with no one else, perhaps especially ourselves.
