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

My favourite show at the mo
24 August 2016 | by jayumsjayumsSee all my reviews

Fleabag is one of the best shows I've seen in ages. As a man in my late 30s, I skipped over this show for a few weeks on iPlayer as I saw it was on BBC3 and assumed it was most probably intended for a younger and more female demographic than me. Which it probably is.

I am glad I ignored those assumptions and watched Fleabag.

The character of Fleabag is written and performed brilliantly by Phoebe Waller Smith. Fleabag often breaks the fourth wall, hence the comparisons to Miranda. This isn't just to share witty asides - instead we are invited into her guilt-ridden conscience. In the first few episodes, Fleabag is only prepared to shows the audience her cool, hedonistic side; but as the series progresses more of the character's inner turmoil is revealed.

I look forward to seeing how this will play out in the final episode of the series. Will Fleabag finally confess to the audience and begin to come to terms with her actions? I certainly hope she does, if it will help her. I will definitely be watching, and rooting for, Fleabag.
