Storyline

Speaking direct to camera girl about town Fleabag recounts her day starting with a one night stand with a strange request and a bus pick-up to whom she explains how she split from boyfriend Harry. After being refused a bank loan she meets - and argues yet again - with sister Claire at a feminist lecture before visiting estranged Dad and Godmother - whom he married with indecent haste on widowhood and not Fleabag's favourite person - helping a drunk woman and pleasuring herself in a taxi after the bus rodent has failed to fulfil his promise.

Trivia

On the subject of the camera, Phoebe Waller-Bridge told the Guilty Feminist "I had worked out halfway through writing it, that the camera was the pressure, was the witness and that she had put the pressure on herself, in the camera watching her that she has to put on this front so even though she's like "Oh fuck it I don't give a shit I can do what I want" that's her coping mechanism from feeling like she's being watched all the time which a lot of women do say they that they feel like they've just constantly got eyes on them judging every movement or piece of clothing or whatever they make and the relationship between her and the camera is a relationship with her and the idea of being judged. But even though the camera's not necessarily judging her she thinks it is, so that's why she's constantly having to be like "Give a shit?" and crying her eyes out when she looks away. See more »

Quotes

Fleabag: You know that thing when a guy sends you a text at two o'clock on a Tuesday night asking if he can come and find you and you've accidentally made it out like you've just got in yourself so you have to get out of bed, drink half a bottle of wine, get in the shower, shave everything, dig out some Agent Provocateur business, suspender belt the whole bit and wait by the door til the buzzer goes?

Fleabag 1
3 September 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Fleabag is written by and stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and is inspired by her Edinburgh fringe play. Waller-Bridge narrates to the audience and sometimes gives knowing looks to the camera.

Fleabag tells her father that she is a 'a greedy perverted selfish apathetic cynical depraved morally bankrupt woman who can't even call herself a feminist.'

In the first scene she allows her boyfriend have anal sex with her. We see her attempt to steal and in order to secure a bank loan for her struggling cafe she even flashes her bra at him.

By the end of the episode she bares a little of her soul to a cab driver. Her business partner Boo died as she wanted to get knocked off by a cyclist and ended up dying. Boo's boyfriend had an affair and she just wanted to make him feel bad and it all went wrong. (I suspect it was Fleabag who had sex with him.)

This was an interesting opening episode, crude, rude, embarrassing, funny and hints that it might go to a darker path. Bill Paterson plays her dad and Olivia Coleman is the wicked stem-mother but both were underutilized in the opening episode.
