What is it?
The 2016 British comedy-drama television show Fleabag (Season 1).
What is it about?
This is how Prime Video describes this television show:
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.
I had never heard of this television show before until I was browsing a certain streaming video website online when I saw a thumbnail for this, and I decided to start watching part of the first episode.
It caught my attention, it surprised me, so I decided to watch the entire season which is only six episodes.
It is a shame that this show is not more known.
I think that this show would be a lot more popular if more people knew about it.
It is a bit more vulgar than I usually like, but it was creative and more realistic than you would expect while still being comedic.
I like the personality of the main character Fleabag, and I like Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance as this character.
Fleabag somewhat reminds me of maybe an alternate version of my female coworker JB combined with Keira Knightley combined with Monica Roccaforte.
I like the fourth wall breaking with Fleabag revealing her thoughts et cetera in each episode, I thought that was creative, and it allows you to know how a character honestly thinks and feels in those moments.
I like how this show explores some of the good, neutral, and bad aspects of friendship and family and sex and life and death / loss et cetera.
Episode 4 was my least favorite episode and Episode 5 was my second least favorite episode, but both of those episodes did have at least one good moment.
This show should be more popular than it is, I like its creative style, and I would like to see more shows like this; and I plan on watching season 2.
