Critic Reviews for Fleabag: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (15)

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.

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.

Waller-Bridge's awkwardness, her moments of rampant egoism followed by crushing bleakness, make Fleabag one of the most distinctive female characters in recent memory.

Audience Reviews for Fleabag: Season 1


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