FLEABAG BIDS FAREWELL
IF you’ve been patiently waiting for season two of this British dramedy, wait no more. You’ll probably be aware that it’s also the final season, with star and creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge being quite busy since the first season aired in 2016. Based on her stand-up show, it was a major cult hit, with WallerBridge talking to camera (breaking the fourth wall, as they say in TV land) as she shared her love life with viewers. Most of the things that happened can’t be written about here, but there were some nice scenes in a guinea pig-themed cafe, complete with guinea pigs. The first season of Fleabag was nominated for a swag of awards, for both writing and performance, and won plenty of them. People seemed excited about a TV series that was doing something different. Since then WallerBridge was recruited to help write and create the first season of KillingEve and is currently tweaking the new James Bond movie. Season two, which just finished airing in the UK, brings back some regular characters (remember Fleabag’s Godmother?) but got a lot of attention for a priest, played by Andrew Scott (pictured with Waller-Bridge), who had plenty of viewers feeling all kinds of ways. All six episodes of season two drop on Amazon Prime today, so you can binge away, but beware of online spoilers – they’re everywhere. If you haven’t seen Waller-Bridge’s other series, 2016’s Crashing, it’s also worth a stream.
