In response to Laura Perrins: Sorry, but neurotic, humiliated Fleabag simply isn’t funny,

The most appalling dross I have watched for a long time and it’s good to read something that agrees. Corrupting (she seduces a priest later on), humiliating to women and totally immoral. No self-respect in her behaviour. Go out, get blind drunk, have sex with random people . . . and you can’t respect others if you don’t respect yourself first. The really concerning part is that it is hidden away from mature adults on BBC3 which is aimed at young people.
Fleabag, like any comedy that gets on British television, isn’t actually comedy, it’s a perverse liberal elite reversal of everything traditional, such that promiscuous, dishonest, thieving, dysfunctional women are heroic.
