5
A dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman hurls herself at modern living in London. She often escapes into momentary fantasy asides -- letting an imaginary audience hear her unspoken gibes -- as she navigates her father's emotional distance, her godmother-turned-stepmother, her perfect sister and horrible brother-in-law as well as her seemingly-doomed love life.

I don't like to see miserable people hanging around miserable people and not answer a single question asked of them truthfully. I don't like to see lonely people who will sleep with anyone and manipulate their relationship with those lovers to make themselves less lonely. I don't like to see friends betray each other. I don't believe the world has that many people who hunger for a connection so badly that they humiliate themselves and hurt everyone who actually cares for them. And I could not stop watching fleabag and it is all about those things I don't like to see. This show is about a woman who is miserable. She is getting to a place where she is understanding her role in the hurt she causes others and feeling her way enough to know she doesn't deserve all the disrespect coming at her from all sides. And it is funny and brilliant and awkward and moving. Some of the smallest bits are incredible, like when she and her Father both wipe their noses the same way at the same time after a conversation where they claim how different they are. It made me uncomfortable to watch at times but I think the point is to show how painful and painfully absurd life can be. I cried at the final episode, it was so touching at the end. I will definitely be watching out for season two.

This takes a long time to get going - I absolutely HATED the 1st three episodes and considered cutting my losses. While billed as a comedy, I only laughed about once an ep. It picks up later in the series but most of the characters are really annoying. I'm still on the fence, overall I guess it's worth it if you realize it's a drama with some humor and NOT straight-up comedy.

I thought at first that I would not like Fleabag. I feel so angry when I see individuals who do not value themselves or their bodies and allow themselves to be used for casual / painful / potentially damaging sexual behaviors. I chose to keep watching. To be known as Fleabag ( a nickname for Phoebe ) reveals the protagonist's loss of her own identity as a valuable human being - she does not even deserve to have a name. Finding out the reason for her shame at the end of season 1 was heart-breaking!! Recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

a very good show, if you're not easily spooked. there is also a second series, but it is not yet released for region 1. if you like this one, you'll also like the second one.

Fantastic! One minute you're laughing and the next you're crying. Such a great cast, I especially loved the relationship between Fleabag and her sister Claire. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius. Looking forward to season 2 coming to DVD!
