Playing Catch-up [Apr. 27th, 2019|11:55 am]

I recommended Fleabag to my sister and she said she'd watched an episode of Series 1 and hadn't liked it but then, because of my recommendation, she watched Series 2 and loved it so now she's ahead of me because I wasn't sure I needed a Series 2 and hadn't got round to watching it but then because of her recommendation I started watching it this morning and I'm three episodes in and it's even better than Series 1.

That's good to hear. I thought Season 1 was excellent and I couldn't imagine a Season 2 without its taking away from the complete picture. Season 2 hasn't come to the U.S. yet -- something to look forward to. At this point, I'm interested in anything Phoebe Waller-Bridge stars in and/or writes.

Have you been watching Killing Eve?

I haven't. I've watched whatever I could find on Amazon Prime and Netflix -- to include Crashing: (pretty good, but not even close to Fleabag) and Man Up. I see I can get Drifters, so I'll try that and see what's up. I'm a bit scared of psychopath/murder mysteries. As a teenager, I used to watch so many horror flicks, but when I entered my twenties, I stopped being able to handle them. Who knows.

In any case, the breaking of the fourth wall -- I can think of a few other examples -- Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Play it Again Sam, The Glass Menagerie ...
I think Waller-bridge is doing something new with it, though.

I'm curious to know where she goes next. She's said there won't be any more Fleabag- or at least not until the character's 50.

I watched the first episode, didn't like it and gave up. Perhaps I, too, should reassess!

I binge watched both series. I forget how I felt about episode 1 because I powered right through it into episode 2.
