    Very surprised there's no thread for this already.

    'Fleabag' is an Amazon original written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Season 1, 6 Episodes, is available now. Season 2 begins production in Nov of this year.

    *Not suitable for children - very graphic language... very graphic*

    It follows a woman in London as she goes about life and dealing with the loss of her best friend. It is Hilarious... but quickly gets serious and sad. Still manages a bit of humor at the end.

    Fleabag, the main character, constantly breaks the fourth wall, with stingingly wicked comments in some of the most awkward and personal moments.

    Well worth a watch imo.

    I watched it a couple weeks ago. It was pretty good. I caught the big "twist" a few episodes in.

    I watched another show with her in it called "Crashing" on Netflix a couple months ago. That was a better show IMHO.

    I watched it a few months ago after seeing a blurb about it in EW. Excellent dark comedy. Now I'll have to put "Crashing" on my to-do list.

    Wish I had Amazon Prime! Enjoyed the first season, and Phoebe killed it with the first season of Killing Eve.

    Interesting. It's been so long since I watched S1 I kinda forget what it was about. I do enjoy that actress though, so I'll probably watch S2.

    I'll have to rewatch a couple of episodes towards the end of S1 to refresh my memory. It's been so long.

    Sat down to start watching S2 last night and ended up binging the entire 6 episodes!! They're short but what a great show. Multiple times I had to pause due to laughing fits. IMO this season is much better than S1 and I thought S1 was great.

    I hope they're doing S3 and we don't have to wait two years for it...

    I second everything you said.

    My wife out in sharp objects and fell asleep 10 minutes into the first episode. I watched the rest of the episode then started season 2 of this show and got through 4 episodes before I had to sleep. Surprised she didn't wake up as much and as loud as I was laughing.

    We just binged season 1 over two days. My wife and I loved it. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments.

    I love the mugs at the camera, a la “The Office”.

    Just watched S1, finished it tonight. Love this series, P W-B is amazing. Writes, acts. And creates Killing Eve, which is nothing like Fleabag, other than sharp writing.

    S2 next...

    Really enjoyed season 2. Brett Gelman is great in I think the finale. Sad that is done after season 2. At least those are the rumblings.

    I have been watching a British show called Miranda on Hulu. It stars Miranda Hart and is a half hour comedy show with a lot of personality of Fleabag. It has a laugh track so you have to get over that. She is a single 30ish big women as they say and mugs for the camera similar to a phoebe. I kind of think Phoebe got a lot of ideas from her. Some of it is over the top but it has its moments.

    I watched all of S1 and S2 in the last few days. It was good, but not as good as everyone was raving about. Any time the two sisters had a scene together it was golden. I didn't enjoy the priest storyline which was the defining arc of the second season (too much PTSD from my Catholic upbringing to enjoy any Catholicism in my entertainment), so despite hearing S2 was even better than S1, it didn't seem so to me.

    I've watched the first two episodes of season 2. I am liking it much better than season 1.
