Fleabag

Postby Minnie the Minx » 14 Nov 2019, 02:16

I've just got round to watching the second series having loved the first when it came out. I wasn't sure what direction the second series could go in after the glorious, overwhelming fireworks of the first but my oh my.

I'm reluctant to name specifics as I can't remember how to do the spoiler thing but there is a scene in series 2 so thrillingly sexy that I dropped my soup spoon into my bowl with a splash! fucking hell! But aside from all that malarky - everything is spot on. The casting, the acting - absolutely everybody is pitch perfect - and Phoebe truly is gripping to watch. She has a kind of emotional translucence about her - you feel she should be bubbling over with things that are tangible and yet part of her is very fragile and almost uninvolved with herself. I find myself hoping there won't be a season 3 - I would genuinely hate to see this series do any kind of shark jumping. Anyone else been watching?

It is magnificent. The writing, the acting, the comedy, the "Oh my God" moments, everything is spot on. Unlikely there will be a season 3, but, who knows

Phoebe has become a national treasure. Fleabag, Killing Eve, co writing the script for the new Bond ... She even recreated the original Fleabag monologues on stage in London, and it was broadcast live to many cinemas
