Critic Consensus: Clever and viciously funny, Fleabag is a touching, wildly inventive comedy about a complicated young woman navigating the aftermath of trauma.

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.
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.
