Fleabag – Season 2 | Review
We often do not realize how a new season of a series may be required until you have the chance to see her. Fleabag, a small niche phenomenon transmitted by BBC Three and distributed in Italy by Amazon Prime Video, is full in this category.
Created by that monster of comedy and intelligence that is Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was founded by one of his theatrical monologue, Fleabag is something that goes beyond simple entertainment to hit where it hurts – and where it's laugh – the viewer. The mini-series in 6 episodes, after the critical success of the 2016 (2017 in Italy), it was renewed for another six episodes by the BBC and Amazon, who believed in the talent of Waller-Bridge, who has led the rewrite of another tv genre, crime, Killing Eve on BBC America.
Written, directed and interpreted by the Bridge, flanked by actors of the calibre especially English as Olivia Colman (the Queen's favourite Director, and The Crown on Netflix) – and that in this season you add, among others, a wonderful Andrew Scott (Moriarty in Sherlock), a frizzantissima Kristin Scott Thomas (Only God Forgives), and always in great shape Fiona Shaw (“caught” just by Killing Eve).
The issues mainly addressed in the first cycle were sex, love and death, the rose expands into new episodes involving religion. As we talk about Waller-Bridge and not of any other talent in painting not only female characters but also male complex, never dull, never discounted, or discounted if they have to be, his “Fleabag” (the nickname of the protagonist, who is never actually called by name) you are thrown headlong into this topic, questioning every certainty and conviction (which he did not) when he knows the priest (Scott) who will officiate the marriage of his father (Bill Paterson) with the step-mother (an extraordinary Colman, so motherly and at the same time, out of place in wanting at all costs to become part of the family).
To contrast with the protagonist, instead of, as in the first season, there is the sister Claire (Sian Clifford), so pent-up emotions, and so, different, but equal to Fleabag, two sides of the same coin that, at the end of the fair, don't forget to be blood of the same blood. Male characters are sometimes contraltari between them – such as that of Scott and the husband of Claire – and they are never simply those which are affected by the actions of those women, because that type of narrative would get to the end the opposite effect.
To learn more about the character and his relationships with the other protagonists, the Bridge uses the flashback, already seen in the first season, and them expands, closing a circle that, while perfectly concluded at the end of the first six episodes, he had surprisingly much to say, so much so that if ordanissero a third cycle, no one would complain as much as Waller-Bridge has been shown to do even better than the first “coming”.
There is a deep reflection on the topics mentioned, so honest, so vibrant, so bright, that it hurts when you need to get to the crux of the issue, how they managed to make the series such as Six Feet Under and The Affair from the point of view of drama. But who has been able to do so well in a comedy is something that transcends the genre. In that wonderful monologue that offers the cameo of Scott Thomas, whose character receives the Award for Best Business Woman of the Year, we are reminded in these times of feminism, #metoo and the like as it risks him from getting when you want to get exactly the opposite, as you have to live life as long it is in time, because the people are everything we have even if humanity, as we well know, is not exempt from problems and faults.
There would be many more accolades to do and many other implications from the report, but we prefer for you to discover the vision of the new six episodes (and also of the first six, if not li ye had yet seen), in a comedy that is really much more of the kind that is, a serial that is an emotional journey and stimulates the mind, like a few others have been able to, could and wanted to do.
“Love is what gives you hope at the end of the day,” says the character of Andrew Scott at some point. So Fleabag 2 brings us new optimism for all the other series and all other phenomenon, but always to the female, that was Big Little Lies, born as a miniseries and then renewed for a second season to deepen the characters and themes already seen. Let's hope.
The second season of Fleabag goes to enrich the may of Amazon Prime Video in Italy from the 17 with all six of the new episodes.
