    I couldn't find a thread on Fleabag.

    Saw all of the buzz regarding season 2 so I started watching from the beginning. Easy to get through and I finished one season in a day. 6 episodes per season I think.

    Hilarious and gutting all at the same time. Truly great show to watch.

    Kudos to Amazon and Phoebe Waller Bridge.

    Season 2 is next.

    Season 2 is great. I think that was the best series I watched this year.

    Season 2 isn't just the best show of 2019, it's one of the best single seasons in TV history. can't say enough great things about PWB. She's my writing idol at this point.

    So many little things to digest in just under 3 hours......

    The way the priest could see when she turned to camera was awesome.

    yeah. i've never seen someone SEEING someone else breaking the fourth wall before. using that as a metaphor for Fleabag actually letting herself to be vulnerable enough to finally let someone else really see her was just next level writing.

    made me insanely jealous because i'm not sure i could have ever come up with something like that. there's plenty of times that I'm watching a movie or tv show and start thinking ahead instinctually about where I'd go with the story next, where i feel like this story teller is going, or the perfect use of needle-drop at the end of movies and when it's some of my idols and I get it right, I'm admittedly pretty happy with myself... while being a little disappointed that I saw it coming. even if it was really good. but being jealous of something I'm watching... that's when I know that I REALLY love what I'm watching and that's it's an all-timer. Fleabag was that in spades for me.

    also, my ex-girlfriend (who I hold no ill-will toward and still think is amazing) is just a spitting image in almost every way to Fleabag, just sub out the english accent for an american one.

    He’s right about his ex. Even some of the quirky personality.

    Yes @Shaggy. Barry was my favorite 30 min show of the year until Season 2 of Fleabag and I crossed paths.
