y’all gotta watch Fleabag

Discovered this show quite by accident. (Thanks, Prime!)

Initially I was like, WTF!?! This chick is effed-up beyond reason. But the more I watched, the more I considered that there is a bit of Fleabag in each of us. We all have secrets. We all do stupid things. We’re all gorgeously flawed in one way or another. And it helps to remember each one of us is impacted differently by grief.

I laughed till I cried. I covered my eyes in horror. I may have shown the TV the back of my middle finger when I realized there was only 6 episodes.
But then…

Andrew Scott as the priest is life!

These characters are of questionable moral fiber.
This show is raw and in your face. (I’m talking ‘C word’ raw)

I felt all the feels.
I honestly haven’t laughed this much in longer than I can remember.
Some of the best fourth wall breaks I’ve ever seen. (sorry, Deadpool)

If you’re not easily offended, get on your Amazon Prime and watch this show!
If you are easily offended, well, I’m actually quite sad for you.
Black comedy is an acquired taste.

  1. Thank you, I’ll have to give it a watch, I’ve heard nothing but great things!

    • Looking forward to hearing what you think!

      • I’m in episode 2 and absolutely love it! Shes just surprised her boyfriend in the shower with a knife and a mask…. I cried! She’s crazy, but at the same time, quite relatable lol! Thank you for a new fantastic series! X

      • OHMYGOD!! I cried too! He’s freaking out and she’s all, Surprise!
        She’s a steaming hot mess, but aren’t we all, just a little bit?
        So pleased you’re enjoying it! ❤

      • She has me on the edge of my seat, what on earth will she do next. I’m rooting for her though, what a fantastic character x

      • Yes! She oftentimes behaves awfully, but I don’t believe she’s an awful person, you know?
        So pleased you’re enjoying her! ❤

      • I think she has a good heart, shes just a little insane. I’m only a few episodes in, but you can understand it with the money issues, deceased friend, and her family… x

      • Yes, I agree. She’s flawed, but I still find her lovable.

  2. Your post made me laugh, I have to watch!! Awesome review haha.

  3. THIS show was glorious. The original play, from what I can find, is an absolute kick, too. There was so much to get out of it, and the timing of the metal outro and the choral intro somehow made me laugh every single time. Even if I was trying not to cry.

    • Yes!! Oh I didn’t even talk about how perfect the intro and outro(s) are!
      I hate that it won’t have a third season, but I absolutely adored the way it ended.
      I’m almost ready to start it all over again. 😉
