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.

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

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
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.

The comedy, which unfolds in six delightfully perfect installments, remains as sharp and as witty as ever.

The resulting second season is a meticulous triumph as gorgeous as it is wrenching.

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.

Writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge's cleverness reaches new heights in the second and final season of her glorious bad-woman comedy.

Every single minute of it is pure gold. Wait, what's better than gold? Platinum. It's pure platinum.

In an entertainment landscape that rarely grants women characters the range to be challenging, Fleabag's commitment to exploring the sisters' anxieties about (and slow progress toward) one another is a breath of fresh air.

Packaging them, turning them into a story, is also a way to control her feelings. Fleabag gives us Fleabag as a gift, so she doesn't have to deal with it herself.

It's one of the best seasons of TV I've seen in ages.

The writing here is bitter, sweet, truthful and empathetic. The performances are brilliantly judged from top-notch actors who know exactly when to play it straight and when to go for the funny.

What Waller-Bridge does with a familiar British comedy trope is explosive.
May 21, 2019
As in Killing Eve, Waller-Bridge always makes sure even her worst characters have moments of vulnerability and humanity, that they have the possibilities that life's pencils and its erasers provide in equal measures.

Fleabag's parting shot manages to feel both definitive and strangely uplifting.
May 20, 2019
Her writing remains as confident and her humor as cutting as ever - these episodes give us some of the funniest TV moments going right now, and may be the year's best.
May 17, 2019
For a character utterly obsessed with the violence that crawls under the surface of politesse, it's a rare moment of harmony between her inner and outer selves.

Exquisitely crafted in every line and shot, it's unflinchingly mordant in its heightened depiction of everyday awfulness, but it retains at its core a vulnerable, longing sweetness you mightn't think capable of coexisting.

Fleabag Season 2, which I cannot recommend highly enough, is thrillingly deep, funny, and buoyant.
