It's a perfect culmination to the character's journey, and a powerful comment on the way likability is currently framed as both the most essential and the least attainable trait a woman can have.
July 31, 2020
That's the hat trick of Fleabag - it makes the audience champion a character they might not agree with, stand with, or completely understand.

[Fleabag] deems the eternal debate about "good feminism" vs "bad feminism" as just another self-defeating litmus test against which women gauge their imperfections - which inevitably instills fears of falling short of the "ideal feminist's" expectations.

In a sea of television content, was never a big fish, but in two short seasons, the tragi-com proved to be one of the medium's absolute best.
January 2, 2020
In a television landscape drowning with new shows, Fleabag holds its own and stands proudly as a shining example that you can still surprise people.
December 5, 2019
All the show's vulgar charm - and there is plenty of that, and at its best you're fully conspiring with it - somehow runs down before its time.

We will always have this hilarious, tempestuous, raw work of genius at our fingertips. It's been a pleasure.
December 5, 2019
The premiere is an early frontrunner for best episode of the season, if not the series, returning to Fleabag's theatrical roots for an evening of farce and concentrated viciousness

December 5, 2019
The show's humor remains raunchy, and the season's secular patron saint is a tough older woman who credits her comfort in her own skin to the bodily liberation of menopause.
December 4, 2019
In just a handful of episodes (this only runs six), "Fleabag" blankets a world of emotions.
December 4, 2019
Fleabag distills the rawest human emotions down into the most economically precise dialogue, cutting directly to the quick, and all of it wrapped up in brightly glib packages. It's universal and also incredibly female.

December 4, 2019
The comedy, which unfolds in six delightfully perfect installments, remains as sharp and as witty as ever.
December 4, 2019
The resulting second season is a meticulous triumph as gorgeous as it is wrenching.
October 22, 2019
Waller-Bridge understands how to make Fleabag's defiance both galvanising and brittle. The emotional complexities of her trauma can be deliriously funny, while moments of self-destruction are sadly telling.

October 3, 2019
This is well-trodden ground for observational comedies, but here the observations are precision-cut, unrelentingly dark and wildly funny.

Season 2 delivers a genius vision of unruly womanhood...
September 5, 2019
If anything, the second and final season of the show may be even better than the first, especially in the way Waller-Bridge chose to turn her moments of direct address to the camera into a meta commentary on the very nature of the main character...
July 23, 2019
Writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge's cleverness reaches new heights in the second and final season of her glorious bad-woman comedy.
July 18, 2019
I was left speechless by the show's willingness to probe questions of religion, commitment, and moral growth -- all without losing the playfully filthy sense of humor marked by its name.
July 4, 2019
Fleabag is, undoubtedly, one of the most challenging TV products that have been made so far. [Full Review in Spanish]
