A dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman hurls herself at modern living in London. She often escapes into momentary fantasy asides -- letting an imaginary audience hear her unspoken gibes -- as she navigates her father's emotional distance, her godmother-turned-stepmother, her perfect sister and horrible brother-in-law as well as her seemingly-doomed love life.

An Emmy Award winning series ? Can you please tell me on which planet? I was looking for humour and found only disappointment. I am so sorry I brought this into my home. What a waste of my time.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge doesn't seem to know how to write a good screenplay.
I hate a protagonist who talks to the camera.
The director should film the whole movie without the protagonist talking to the camera.
She should've written a play instead of this screenplay.

Apparently, she's meant to be disgusting but funny. But, without subtitles, the funny bits are lost and we're left with only....

Not sure why it won so many awards, really disappointed.

I've waited my entire life to find a protagonist I can relate to and although Phoebe Waller-Bridge didn't write Fleabag just for me, that's what I'm telling myself. Someone somewhere has written exceptionally and extensively about why this is the freshest television today (as is Michaela Coel's "I May Destry You"), so go read those reviews and then come back and read this: BINGE BINGE BINGE. Like, make some snacks, get comfortable, turn off your phone, and check out. Beautiful, hilarious, sad. Several times I found myself holding my breath. I cried when it ended. All the best to you on your Fleabag journey!

Loved it - only 6 episodes and it went by in minutes - can't wait for Season 2 and the "hot priest". Nothing better than British comedy/drama.

I agree with the comment that we need CC or we may miss all the witticisms in these episodes. I was not quite sure what to expect...it was comedic but then took some very dark turns. Just like life! I am eagerly awaiting Season 2.

DVD needs closed captions for my old ears.

Fleabag talks to the camera frequently, letting audience in her self-awareness to those flummoxed actions on screen. Coming from an unorthodox single white-woman who engages with cringey sex partners. her monologues are often outside the box, humorous, and caught me off guard. On the other hand, behind sunny dispositions, she is saddled with deep insecurities and regret. Excellent original script and Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a natural fleabag noun [C] (PERSON/ANIMAL). UK informal. a dirty and/or unpleasant person or animal.

The most talked about line is about the rubber end of a pencil. This one is in wikiquote:

Bank manager: People make mistakes.
Fleabag: It's why they put rubbers on the ends of pencils.
Bank manager: Is that a joke?
Fleabag: I don't know.
===
Fleabag is in fact referencing a joke that is not posted in wikiquote, at least not yet:

Boo: OK, an 11-year-old boy was put in juvenile prison for repeatedly sticking rubber ended pencils up his school hamster's arsehole.

Fleabag: What?

Boo: Yeah. Why would they do that?

Fleabag: Apparently he liked it when their eyes popped out.

Boo: No, why would they send him away? He needs help. ... They shouldn't have just locked him up. ... Yeah, but he's obviously not happy, happy people wouldn't do things like that.

Fleabag: Fair point.

Boo: And anyway, that's the very reason why they put rubbers on the end of pencils.

Fleabag: To f*ck hamsters?

Boo: No, because people make mistakes.
