Fleabag Season 1: Hilarious, Daring, and Honest!
Fleabag – created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, moonwalks on that tightrope with grace and ends up being one of the finest tv-shows I’ve ever seen. Phoebe plays a dry-witted woman who’s trying to survive her messed up life while failing to cope with a tragedy. She talks to us about her life by breaking the fourth wall directly. It seems as if to her, we’re already her best friend. It’s weird and exploitative at first, but pretty soon we are also complicit in her jibes and humor. Comedy is the secret ingredient here. She whips up offensive jokes with an all-knowing smile on her face and looks at us with notoriety brimming in her eyes.
