Fleabag: a hilarious sitcom about terrible people

Phoebe Waller-Bridge's sitcom is full of people who are defeated and unlikable - including her own character who masturbates to Barack Obama speeches. But it's utterly riveting.

Stuart Heritage, The Guardian, 5th August 2016

Review: Fleabag, BBC Three, episode 3

There is a hint of some character development towards the end of the third episode of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's excellent series. Jogging through a graveyard Fleabag suddenly seems to see the world in a different way. Could she be heading for a happy ending?

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 3rd August 2016
