Just trying to decide if it's worth watching. Looked at preview and can't make up our minds

I watched it a while ago and loved it. It's a dark comedy that's very frank about sex and depression, so you'd have to decide if that's something you want to see.

I agree with Fleetiebelle. I watched it and loved it. It actually becomes less comical as it progresses but it works. The only downside is that it is only one season.

We watched all 6 (8?) episodes last night. MrsM liked it more than I did, but it did keep my interest.

Thanks for the feedback

Note: A lot of British shows (The UK version of House of Cards, old series about a call girl, Fleabag and others) seem to enjoy using characters to talk directly to viewer...I find that very interesting

If you haven't already watched Catastrophe, that's a little more lighthearted.

I loved that show!

I binged on Fleabag last night and enjoyed it too. It's meatier as it goes on and I liked the character development - it did remind me of the same sort of thing in Catastrophe.

Have you seen Miranda? It's similar to Fleabag but funnier in my opinion, and MUCH more lighthearted. I adore the main character. I liked her in Call The Midwife but I like her even more in Miranda!
