Phoebe Waller-Bridge. That's it. That's the intro.
Fleabag is exceptional. Season 2 is perhaps some of the best TV I’ve ever seen.
The way Waller-Bridge perfectly blends comedy and tragedy creates a show that hits you differently. The movements of pure emotion are all the poignant as the highs and lows are so far apart. The way she incorporates element from the stage play is unique, the show pushes the boundary of what mainstream TV can be, I only just want more of it.
"Every role is played to perfection"
The cast are truly incredible. Every role is played to perfection. Olivia Coleman is wicked and subtly hilarious as the Stepmother. Sian Clifford brings an added dimension to the show as Fleabag’s sister, especially in the second season where their relationship becomes the focus. Andrew Scott is charming, charismatic and a pure delight as the priest in season two, but delivers on every moment of emotion required. Brett Galman is weird, eccentric and wacky as Claire’s husband and plays his “villain” role exceptionally.
And then there’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge who is THE show. As writer and lead, she carries the project. Her scripts are hilarious and heartbreaking. Her looks to camera crate moments of comedy that other performers would struggle to replicate.
I cannot urge you to watch the show enough. Season one is great perhaps an 8/10. But season two is another animal, 10/10. Please, please watch.
