Critic Reviews for Fleabag Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (16)

Those hungry for an alternative to Lena Dunham's Girls will find plenty of dark relationship humour in this very funny comedy by writer/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge...Fleabag might be full of self loathing but she is very easy to like.

Fleabag reminded me of the brave aspects of many of the Sad Clowns we've encountered over the years, who use the tools they know best in order to cope. They're in a battle with grief, despair, loneliness, and worse, and they refuse to succumb.

If Fleabag begins as a collection of single-girl moments, patience through a few episodes reveals a fuller, sadder, more multidimensional story anchored by Waller-Bridge's bracing honesty, inventive uses of jumbled time and an abrupt editing style.

[Fleabag] joins the likes of You're the Worst, Transparent and Casual in the realm of gut-punch comedy.

Hilarious heartbreaker.

Its theatrical DNA lingers in its fleet style of storytelling: Fleabag is both narrator and actor, turning to the camera to commentate on a scene before seamlessly re-entering it. It's been done before, not often as charmingly.

It's dirty, it's sexy, it's disgusting, it's hilarious - and it's about being a girl. As in, a real girl. Scared? You should be.

...an honest-to-hell portrait of urban alienation and its tragicomic hues. It's jittery, droll, pathetic, amusing and unapologetically confrontational.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The script is razor sharp and fizzes with a daring, deadpan wit. Watching Waller-Bridge's performance, it becomes all too clear she must have written the comedy.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's journey is dark and emotionally complicated, and made all the better by clever pacing/editing and Fleabag's constant need to talk to the camera, usually during the most unlikely moments.

Super Reviewer


An obnoxious woman doing awkward things in this unfunny slapstick blue comedy. Another failed Amazon investment.
