I was a latecomer to Fleabag. Put off by the hype and the unappealing name, I arrived about a year late to the party, where everyone was already putting on their coats to leave, eye-rolling at my snail-paced approach to one of the most popular comedies to have graced our screens in recent times. A similar thing happened with my intense love affair with Monzo (we are still happily together but I’m getting a bit sick of the notifications).
Having heard so much about them from friends and seeing streams of good reviews online, I sat down last week and decided, before all the deadlines kick in, it was time to indulge myself in the BBC’s most talked-about series. After clocking some impressive TV time, I can confirm: Bodyguard and Killing Eve are compelling, thrilling and, most of all, pretty sexy.
After recently realising that Week Four is suddenly upon us, I made two big decisions. The first decision was that this is probably a good time to crack on with my dissertation. The second was to start watching New Girl, the latest American comedy to hit Channel 4.
A new American series is about to hit our television screens in the UK next week, revolving around life in the air on the infamous airline, Pan Am, during the 1960s.
