FLEABAG BIDS FAREWELL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

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.
