The trailer has kind of a Peep Show vibe...and I see Olivia Colman (Sophie) is in this too. I didn't think the trailer was as funny as Peep Show, though. Maybe I'll give it a shot, though.
"Very good-looking" means something different on British tv than it would in America, in any case.

Interview with the producer, discussing the show at length. Second season to air in early 2019 and will be set a year after the first one.
[quote]When I visit Hampson at her London office, I mention the first season’s novelistic qualities. The shock value seems hard to repeat. How will they overcome Difficult Second Album syndrome? “The key is to not retread old ground”, Hampson believes. “Fleabag’s in a very different place in life from where we left her. The whole of the first series, it was a façade. She was shiny and prim on top, but you didn’t know she was grieving underneath it all. In that last episode, we saw she was broken. We can’t go back to pretending she’s fine again.” There will be a time jump, though. “Whatever our story is, we’re going to start a year on from where we left off.” (Does that mean there’ll be a scene with Fleabag pleasuring herself to Donald Trump? I didn’t ask.)
Can't come soon enough!

I loved both though, without giving anything away, Fleabag is also deeply sad. Chewing Gum is something else altogether and Michaela Cole is terrific in Black Mirror as well.

The first episode of the second season sure is promising. Andrew Scott looks cuter than ever, although the bad hair genes are slowly coming home to roost, unfortunately.
r22 I love that with this show because I know people like that who are natural disasters manifest. It's all fun and games until shit blows up massively. I don't think the showrunner is sympathetic to the main character she plays at all. She's judging her by showing the consequences of her actions at the very end.

The (two) crazy posters who keep railing against the show in this thread remind me of those people who feel personally attacked when you inform them you don't do anal (or oral, in my case). It's like they feel anyone who doesn't have the exact same preferences as them is broken somehow and they make it into their personal mission to pester you into changing your mind. Quite infantile, really.

R110, I thought the talking to camera was linked to her feeling grief, shame, loneliness, worries she would ever love someone again and that she was quite broken. It was her way of coping, and a sign of her issues. She needed the camera less and less as she made peace with and connected with her family. Which had been eluding her since season 1. She also saw with the priest she could love again, and as the priest said in his sermon, love means hope.
She walked away, with healing, closure, hope and piece of her mother with her still. Fleabag no longer needed us, so she said goodbye. It was a very positive thing for her. If there were another season, it would mean that she had backslid, which wouldn't be necessary. I thought it wrapped it up well.

It's insanely big news here in the UK. Surprised they chose to air Killing Eve in the US first rather than capitalise on PWB being front page news at the moment with Fleabag.

I'm firmly in the camp that loved that finale! It's less showy than the first season's, but also more mature in a way. When they sat down at the bus stop and she asked, out of nowhere, "It's God, isn't it?", something just exploded inside me. It seemingly came out of nowhere because he was such a relaxed priest and he was kissing her just before the ceremony. When was the last time faith and romantic love were explored in such a way? And PWB is the last person I'd expect this from.
And her dad finally stringing a full sentence together, only to tell her she feels love deeply and that's why it hurts her so much. And the little statue being a substitute for her mother, eugh. What a perfect little treasure of a show.

Long after the first season aired, Fleabag was talked about by everyone I follow on Twitter and listen to on the podcast who just discovered the show. And those were very much all Americans. We just happen to follow different circles, that's all.

I really wouldn't speculate and generalise like that without a quality representative survey before me. That's an anecdotal statement based on a sample of one.

I hate Fleabag. Everything is so mannered about it and you can tell this girl is someone who loathes anything genuine or emotional.

Some people are hardened and damaged, and are drawn to that sort of fiction. I know I am. It is very soothing and cathartic to experience how you feel inside, outside of yourself. It allows you to question and interrogate what that is. This show blew me away, but I don't expect this show to have a universal appeal.

A conversation and Q&A with Andrew Scott of Fleabag.
Interesting that SAG-AFTRA is doing these events for British shows as well, especially those that haven't aired in the US yet.
A Q&A with Andrew Scott of FEABAG. Moderated by Lesley O'Toole. Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is back for a second bite, and this time she is going toe to t...

Just watched that video all the way through. Andrew Scott is pure sex. Handsome, intelligent, cool. funny. My God!

Does Andrew Scott wear a very bad hairpiece or has he got the worst possible style?

I rewatched Season 1 of Fleabag again because I didn't remember anything from the first season. The motorcycle guy that likes fucking her asshole and doesn't have a name is very good-looking.
Yup, he's very very good-looking, handsome, etc.

Agreed, he's delicious.

Such a shame this show is not eligible for any of the US awards. I've seen nothing but praise for the second season.

Hated season 1 but loved season 2 of Fleabag. I gave season 2 a chance after so many people said it was good and I was not disappointed. Don’t really like Killing Eve but I am going to give it another shot.

The AV Club has such nice write-ups of the episodes. I only realised when reading them that Fleabag isn't the only one who's not named on the show; Dad and Godmother are the same in that regard.
In fact, in the last-ever episode, Olivia Colman seems to have a little meta moment of breaking the fourth wall herself when she looks at Dad while she's introducing people, stops for a moment and goes "This is... this is... God, how extraordinary... I always just call you darling..." And we get a glance from Phoebe in that moment.

Has anyone managed to track down the Insta of the extra who plays Asif, the gorgeous bisexual Syrian refugee, in the finale?

R94 and r106, I took the priest’s detection of Fleabag’s breakage of the fourth wall as a sign of deeper connection to her than the other characters.

r134 Yes, you're right, but we weren't as far along into the season at that point to recognise that yet. He's the one who got the closest to her and saw the wall breaking as a defence mechanism. The rest were too involved with themselves to notice.
There's also been some speculation that she started with the glances after Boo's death and that she's actually addressing her. Note that she never looks into the camera in the flashbacks before Boo died.

Asif, for reference.

R131 I tried and I don't like Killing Eve either. Sandra Oh drives me nuts.

I don’t like it much. She has a Lena Dunham meets Bridget Jones vibe I can’t get behind. At the start of the first episode when she had a late night breakdown on her dad’s door stoop it was all too predictable.

I didn't like her at first but she kind of grew on me. It's the sister who is an unpleasant bitch. Anyway,, I rewatched the first season and found it funny. The second season with Andrew Scott---who was extremely good-- was more mature and heartbreaking.

Her sister, Isobel Waller-Bridge, is a composer and even wrote the dirty lyrics for the choral music.
[quote]Director Harry Bradbeer said, “Iso wrote the lyrics for it. But all the words are basically Latin or Greek words for private parts of the body, repeated at various intervals. They’re basically saying, ‘Cock, cunt, arse.’ So there’s a little detail that not everybody knows.”
The composer’s work can also be heard on the upcoming season of “Black Mirror.”

Jake G meeting with Phoebe last week. New project?

Halfway through Season 1.
She's great and I find it generally fascinating. She has a knack for taking a very well worn story path or idea and just taking it slightly in a different direction.

Watched both seasons this weekend. So good! I definitely preferred the second season. Andrew Scott was delicious as the priest, I had not thought about him since Sherlock, shame on me.

It's incredibly well written, but awkward, I think someone way upthread said the same thing.
