Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on August 28, 2016

fleabagFleabag is a BBC series that I pirated because it’s not available here and then 4 episodes in discovered that it’s going to be on Amazon Prime soon, but I was too far in and couldn’t resist finishing. Sorry Amazon!

I can’t really make sound good from the premise, which sees a single woman in the city struggling to keep her cute cafe in business and having a disaster of a personal life. It sounds like… Bridget Jones or one of those 90s sitcoms about working at a magazine, but the twist is that the protagonist is horrible. A general piece of shit, but as you get to know her, her being-a-piece-of-shit starts to make sense. And the show gets pretty dark on occasion, too, which I always dig. Horrible people being horrible/funny with occasional bouts of depressing awfulness? Sign me up.
