Sunday night, Sharon and I finished watching season one of Fleabag. We decided to watch season one after season two won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series in September.
Fleabag is a British comedy-drama television show created and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Waller-Bridge stars in the title role. It is based on Waller-Bridge's one-woman show first performed in 2013.
The series was originally produced by Two Brothers Pictures for digital channel BBC Three in a co-production agreement with Amazon Studios. It comprises only six twenty-five minute episodes.
Waller-Bridge plays Fleabag, an angry, confused, sexually voracious young woman living in London. Sian Clifford and Olivia Colman also star.
We were both initially lukewarm on the show, but it grew on us over the course of the first season. We will definitely watch season two.
Two side notes. First, Waller-Bridge hosted Saturday Night Live this week. Second, large parts of the last episode of season one were shot in and around the Tate Modern Museum in London. We visited this museum in March.
