On the face of it, this is almost a modern comedy of manners, as the eponymous 20-something Fleabag (played by Waller-Bridge) navigates her way through mortifying family dinners, embarrassing sexual encounters and a mind haunted by the tragic death of her best mate and business partner (that business being, of course, a guinea pig-themed café). It's by turns poignant, irreverent, cringe-inducing, tear-jerking - but, most of all, it's just downright hilarious.
Now with a mantel-piece heaving under the weight of Baftas, Golden Globes and Emmys, Fleabag was the series that turned Phoebe Waller-Bridge into a global star. Yep, this is where the Star Wars cameos, Donald Glover collabs and James Bond screenwriting all began.
Whether you're streaming it for the first time or are rebinging it (again!), the great news is that you can see both seasons absolutely 100% free, with your avenues to watch Fleabag online explained below.
