Storyline

A dry-witted woman, known only as Fleabag, has no filter as she navigates life and love in London while trying to cope with tragedy. The angry, grief-riddled woman tries to heal while rejecting anyone who tries to help her, but Fleabag continues to keep up her bravado through it all. Comic actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge stars as the titular character on the series, which is based on Waller-Bridge's 2013 one-woman show of the same name. Written by Jwelch5742

Surprisingly Good
25 August 2016 | by davidrain-86160See all my reviews

When I watched the first episode, I thought it was terrible. It seemed like cheap comedy. I thought it was the crude adventures of a feminist bad-ass. But I enjoyed the second episode - and to my surprise I discovered that there were twinges of emotional depth to it. The characters weren't flat like in most comedy. By the third episode I knew that I wasn't watching crude or cheap comedy. This was well thought out drama, and surprisingly realistic.

What makes fleabag special is that it isn't set in a comedy world where all the characters are silly unrealistic people. They are believable people, in a believable situation.
