  • Emily Nussbaum

    Fleabag is an original. ... By the final episode, which I won’t spoil but which touches on themes of forgiveness, her story feels richer than many dramas.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    [A] truly wonderful new comedy. ... How Waller-Bridge walks her character up to the edge of emotional frailty and then only explores a small part of it, brings out the pathos that so clearly lies behind the comedy and leaves you wanting more development and character exploration.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ben Travers

    Fleabag is such an exciting new series it’s hard to settle down long enough to appreciate its many impressive attributes.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    Fleabag unpacks the life of a complicated young woman--with all of its pain, insecurity, anger, humor, friendship, impulses, and more--with a unique sensibility that makes it essential viewing.

    Collider Full Review
  • Lisa Weidenfeld

    Waller-Bridge has a bracing willingness to let entire scenes play out just to build to one absurd joke at the end, and she proves adept at giving characters and moments the touch of specificity that makes them feel real and human.

  • Alan Sepinwall

    I came into the series expecting a raunchy black comedy, and got that, but with the added bonus of something achingly beautiful when it wanted to be.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    [A] funny, highly profane but surprisingly poignant dramedy (originally a stage play) about a sexually compulsive woman in London.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rob Lowman

    Eventually, though, what emerges in the series is a nuanced--if slightly bizarre--portrait of a woman in distress.

    Los Angeles Daily News Full Review
  • Caroline Framke

    Fleabag is so wonderfully messy, funny, and deeply human that these seemingly chaotic collisions feel natural. Full Review
  • Sophie Gilbert

    The show itself is sneakily insightful. ... 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. Never has being a modern woman seemed so painfully funny, so brutal, and so hopeless, all at once.

    The Atlantic Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Once set in play, each of these [belated-coming-of-age tropes] devices gets turned inside out--quickly (each episode is 30 minutes) and surreptitiously (the action, like Fleabag’s life, jumps from scene to scene), but with a clear eye for truth that often becomes, like all good comedy, quite devastating.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Around the middle of the season, the show takes aim at a couple of easy targets in an episode set at a silent retreat full of huffy New Age types, but then it skirts past some of the obvious jokes to conclude with scenes that are both warmly goofy and ever-so-slightly earnest. In its home stretch, it also gains depth and unexpected power, and its first-season finale is not to be missed.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    This Fleabag will make you squirm between laughs. [26 Sep 2016-2 Oct 2016, p.17]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Each of Fleabag’s six episodes is a tightly-composed variation on her character’s wild, bad-girl humor, and her personal (especially sexual) and professional frustration.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    The whole show is a study of this woman’s personality, and talking to the audience feels integral to who she is. Because of Waller-Bridge’s delivery, that talking also can be funny as hell.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Fleabag's a heartbreaker, sometimes hilariously so.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    What sets the show apart isn’t the surface quality of its humor but its restless, almost feral energy and its slap-in-the-face attitude.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    Getting to know these characters can be incredibly entertaining but, like the pets each keeps at arm’s length in their respective shows, they’re best experienced in limited doses.

    Salon Full Review
  • Will Ashton

    Waller-Bridge has created a deftly funny portrait of grief, told with humility, keen insight and low-key melancholy.
