Fleabag, Season 1

2016 TV show

Watched 20–23 December 2019

“They shouldn’t have just locked him up.”
“He pencil fucked a hamster.”
“Yeah, but he’s obviously not happy. Happy people wouldn’t do things like that.”
“Fair point.”
“And anyway, that’s the very reason why they put rubbers on the end of pencils.”
“What, to fuck hamsters?”
“No, because people make mistakes.”

Despite my incredibly high expectations, I was still blown away by this show in ways I don’t even quite understand. Exceptional in every way.

About star ratings

My ratings are subjective. I’m not aiming for a perfect ranking of comparative artistic merit, just trying to represent how I feel about stuff. Here’s what they mean:

Personal favorite. I simply love it, warts and all.
Something special. Highly recommended.
Good, but unremarkable. I’ll probably forget about it.
A waste of time. Not recommended.
Practically insulting. Soulless garbage. (Rare!)
