Fresh update on "fleabag" discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast
"I was really happy to see that because she was really a underused in the Godzilla movie which you know wasn't good at all in any way but Shows you the difference of a project where somebody hind it who loves the character and really want something to happen with it as opposed to somebody just picking an actress and plug into shore. Sure. Yeah. Absolutely and I think that's really interesting about like her like wanting to make this ever since she was really little and like actually producing and getting that opportunity and there's been a lot of talk about how this could be a serious starter and. I mean how perfect is that? If she gets to continue this character that is pretty great and I mean I I, like the movie maybe not as much as you like to. But I I certainly could see it continuing in could see this growing as a character and has a story and the different places it could take it but. I will move onto my first piece and that is I think this is a pretty obvious one for the director Harry Brad Beer, who also was a director on the series fleabag, which I only watched a few episodes of but Is exactly the same kind of fourth wall breaking the girl turning to the camera, and you know making cutesy clever remarks to the audience about what's happening the whole time, and clearly that director brought that same energy to this and continued that same thing and then of course, the is also you know you know filled with a lot of modern feminism takes and stuff like that and so this is a you know not very thinly field feminism story. And it's great the way that they we've that in there. But. That is something that has carried over I think from his previous work on on fleabag. And that's that's a show that I have heard a lot about I've never have seen but Yeah. As soon as this was over, I was who who is this director and need to see some of his other stuff but I'm definitely GONNA be looking into that It's he a great energy. Yes. Definitely that that is a good word for for this movie is the energy of it and There's a positivity about the movie you know in a fun. You, know the characters very very, very sassy and witty and just fun. It's a it's a charming movie. So. Yeah. Definitely. If leave bags around the same way than I would definitely like that show. But yeah, the the feminine You know message of this movie and like you said how it is a very you know feminine movie again that ties in to where we are I think with with movies and. TV shows as well and the current direction of. Going back because you know this is a Victorian era movie of kind of. Getting to do some things that cinema hasn't done before so Yeah. Absolutely. I you know..
'Fleabag' play to be streamed online for COVID-19 relief effort
"I would love to rally the guilty feminists troops. Who if they cross over into fleabag fans might find a few that Dogra something in this for them flip on the TV show was originally a play? It was a woman show. It lost seventeen minutes. And it's just me being fleabag on a stool that two thousand thirteen stepper knows about because she was responsible for me watching the first ten minutes. I'm always very clear. Say when I'm asked in the press about it that I am one hundred percent you've written it any way you might find something slightly different but that was bursting to come out and I'm sure it would have come out but I'm also obviously delighted and thrilled to that. Came out of that that moment. And you know that there's always magic and midwifery in the theater is always always. There is magic midwifery. I love that. The longest show is the national fate. Live recording of fleabag. The West end production of it is now up and can be watched on Soho Theatre. Domon website or Amazon prime for a minimum donation of four pounds and everything we make be split between various charities the national emergency trust and just together charities and acting for others and finally there will be fleabag support fund for people in our industry who basically are struggling and need grants to help them get through this time seventy percent goes to the national emergency trust. Nhs together charities in thirty percent goes towards community through this other charities which is very important to us goes back started in the first place so if you liked a fleabag the television show. It's wonderful to see the evolution and also you don't just play back you transform yourself into the other characters and it's so beautiful so if everybody who listen to the guilty feminist who could afford four pounds more downloaded that today that would provide so many pieces of protective clothing. Four and it just off it will save lives. And if you can't afford to that's Okay. It's possible you've lost your job. You're one of the very people who works in a sector that needs this kind of grant you can help by just amplifying give it a follow. Give it a re tweet. Tell a friend tell somebody you know who loved fleabag. Hey did you know that you could do this and I really appreciate you doing that? Because that's a a valuable piece of intellectual property and a beautiful production and the fact that you're now putting it out there and making accessible also through the crisis when people are at home desperate fulfilling like there at the theatre again to be able to have that theatrical experience which is different than televised
The New Normal with Phoebe Waller-Bridge
"Is an auditor as always thank you so much for coming on first of all. How the hell are you good? I've got into a rhythm I think. Some senior okay. The Sun's out as a sort of calm minnow streets. We shocked by. I are you. Are you an extrovert or introvert? Ike feel you're an extrovert. You get your energy from other people rather than get your energy from alone. Time is yeah an extra energy from other people. They need to learn time but they get their energy from other people. Introverts need society in socializing but they get their energy from being on their own. Who Goes I know she do? You know what I think. I generally think I'm not sure I would say I was next. But I don't feel like an extrovert when I'm being making sense. I remember amy. Schumer went said. She's an introverted extroverts. Because I'm actually really really really loving stopping it in. This was so confusing this whole time. Because there's so much positive that has come out of the absolute tragedy but one of them. I think really is that people have suddenly become so much more aware of one another and this. It's been this big sort of humanizing force and to suddenly be having thought over the last year. I've been traveling so much and been moving so much dislike just go go go and wasn't sure if I how I would feel just suddenly being at home quite absolutely love it. I love the quietude. Such quite huge does now. It's like it's like. It's like quiet with attitude. Yes yes. It's hard Clinton too is quite with attention. I relate to that and again. I'm very aware that you know. This is a global pandemic and people are dying and I don't want to sort of make about my silver linings but human beings are designed or have a vote to see silver linings. That's who we are and we need to find silver linings in order to survive. So it's okay to talk about them. Are you having a ball? Well I think I've got. I am finding exactly what you're finding. I've been rushing around London rushing around the world for so long and I haven't taken the time to stop and regroup because there's always another wonderful thing to do or go to opportunity or something to create an they. Some of these. Things are incredible work. I've been able to do with choose. Lov help refugees or coughing with Amnesty International. I wouldn't take any of it back. But there's always something to fill a hole in your calendar and I think for both you and may have the last few years that's been I think especially true. I'm GONNA say especially. Yeah it's been a wild few years. I think it's just when you have a lack of rhythm soda new life whether it's so mad that you're letting the last year for Fussell Of sporadic and spontaneous instead of it's spontaneous but it's also completely at the mercy of the Hustle and I think when you're hustling and whatever scale every time your life. It's this constant kind of hunt. Constitutive run and when you do stop it's just a sort of water breath talking with family friends and then go again and actually. This is me which people have been saying for a very long time. Which is you have to make time to take stock of it all otherwise very healthy and so. I have tie it now because I find this. I'm finding this not coming over me and I think it's years of tidiness landing now. My Body is allowed to be still. Yeah I completely Completely sort of out for the first week. Maybe it was the second week. Actually when lockdown began and actually just before lockdown began the first instinct was sort of from so many people. What can we do? How can we help? What can we? How can we like mobilize? And then all of that kind of crazy energy that came from all these announcements in the realizations and that sense of falling into this kind of crazy global panic sort of thrown into that so I think the first two weeks and then we'll talk for the first two weeks it was all about the fleabag fund and then actually when that et cetera getting up and running after that I just completely just goes so gross and earl and also are you feeling better now via what's it because it's just you start thinking about my health and competed way way and because it's not only for the responsibility news. Your health is your responsibility to yourself. Because you're sort of like yeah. Obviously we all want to look fabulous all the time and that's the main reason for me. Yes but now we like like if I'm healthy. I'm putting my Momma risk or like other people at risk and it's just been such an amazing like amazing massive wakeup call up after after ourselves and it's not just a kind of selfish exercise book quite literally. Selfish exercise suspecting that I am you. I'm feeding seeing the silver linings and I think the social distancing thing is actually in some ways been good as well because you can't just immediately just go to yourself forbid
2020 Golden Globes Predictions
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up
End of Decade Special
"I'm John Madden and I'm here with my co presenter. Under Harrison as we in our guest use our personal favorites that have kept don minds off brexit climate change and cheering for the past ten years. Hello Hello Sean how you doing. I'm very well your last chance to say this was the decade of and so what was it in the decade of this chancers the decayed of other everything. Everything fell to pieces both in good ways about ways at music. The music disintegrated and facilitates into a billion different things. So it's impossible to say this is the sound of the time that is captured. The moments that it doesn't happen anymore that everybody lives in their entire entirely sort of separates had medically sealed genre bubbles and but also I think it's a it was a time when the public realm realm the wheel. Shed sometimes finally properly replaced by million private realms. All you know create by social media bills created by your political bubbles and I it it it created a world where every body is only talking to a version of themselves. The other thing depressing sauna. Hi Sean John. Is the caving in pop culture as well as real culture et. You've gotta get used to losing all the time. There's a reason why the avengers movie were so big with A. Ah That's basically what has happened in politics as well. So it's going to be. A Weirdo. Decay Tacoma because just putting things back together again absolutely crushing stop in bed. Thousands Aglietta never bottom. We'll we'll do it together. You and I the podcast in the team will put everything back together before we start you and I went to the Arab Exhibition Super Troopers Neo tune and Lina speak. What do you make of it? I thought it was all right. I thought it was beautifully designed. I didn't think it was enough stuff in it. Buying in it's lacking in actual touchstones touchstones. It's lacking in this. Is The real guitar flocking. These are the real close because the move replicas. They went after so you kind of lead through room by room thing which is beautifully recreated created to give you the feel of individual albums. But when you're in there there's lots of fun things like appeared nineteen seventies telephone. You can pick it up and listen to sound clips on the ton of interview interview. And there's a great little hand held I pod type thing which gives you video content but the actual exhibition itself is lacking in artifacts. I wanted to feel like I was in the room with the piano. Were you know sakes all was written. I wanted to fill this recreation of this video but it just felt a villa can experience a non exhibition. So it's interesting but I think when the when your gold standard is is David Bowie is the does not see I see we.

I can't it so the new shape I think for certain artists. The album has always been an irrelevance and it was basically just a thing into kind of walk singles all kind of make money so the idea of the obviously you separate the album is a commercial enterprise versus. The album is an artistic enterprise so pop music never fully adapted to album as four my and that's not flow on in streaming aged that's why pulp is so preeminent because it's all about the single by think for the biggest deal interest in albums still buy albums or consume albums as we as we say yeah I don't think it's Dad I think it's very cut of a very binary thing decided that yes.

Lemonade with Abigoliah Schamaun and guest Nell Gifford
"I am a feminist but today Yoga I overheard a woman in the shoe area saying will men men like to claim this way but women to scrub. That's the difference between men and women how they clean and I wanted to say. Excuse me I don't want to be rude. But these binary ways that we talk about men and women do invite a certain culture that says that somehow Manohla always like this and women are like this best you kind of know to cleaning trend. You kind of noted agenda trend. Don't undermine that but saying men do and women do that. It's actually not that helpful but what I wanted to say. Even more was how common link to clean because I missed that pond. I heard that women's scrubbing wing section. How to clean because as far as I can make out not at all but what I did say was nothing talk? Get involved in this lady's life I don't know she doesn't need be tapping around the shoulder and telling her about does not but it's annoying. That would have been really fun though. So if you just gone up and being excuse me I don't think you should prescribed a cleaning gender binary now must stay and then just like and then like the little bells you know the the meditation Gong goes off and then you just evaporate. That bowl sounds off bowl. That could've been my interruption. Maybe it could have Donald Binary that yeah. I must not do that because I feel. It's going to be steeply culturally insensitive. I don't think we should throw that right. I'm a feminist but the last time I I was on the guilty feminist podcast I tweeted about it. I put it on instagram. I shared it on facebook and my mother called me and said congratulations nations. I've listened to the PODCAST. It's very good. You're very funny. Deborah's a lovely person. I just need you to know that you spelled feminists wrong in every single one of your posts. Oh every single. Oh No I cry ball. TURNS ZACK turns out. YOU DON'T SPELL FEMINISTS DEMAND S. I think you put a man into feminist. Yeah stop it right now. It's very on brand for me. I can't spell it the best time I remember in the second grade we were allowed to pick five words to be on our own spelling tests. That were special to us that we needed to learn how to spell so I had to put my name on spelling second grade. I was like nine and I still was like no the nine in the second grade. I think so are nine and six. Are you six. I think I'm nine and everything when in doubt I'm always like when I was nine number you would not nine. I'm a feminist but if I had to give up feminism or yoga for one week it'd depend where my head was Some weeks I really need yoga. I get it. I'm the same way I mean it's only a week. I wouldn't actively anti-feminist but if I had to rest all NAMA state I get it. I am a feminist but whenever I wear a crop top onstage to show my stomach and a fellow curvy woman comes up to me after the show and touches me lightly on the Elbow Elbow and goes I love your body positively. I WANNA puncher. That is the exact same thing as a guy coming up to me. Going your your tits. Look good in that top. It is not to be discussed. It is only to be enjoyed in silence. Yeah I agree because on the live tour I had this this big green sequent Cape and one night. I happened to be walking posted on summers and they had the same green sequence in full please swimsuit saw so. I thought pretty funny if I had that on them with trousers over the tall swimsuit was like a body suit type thing green sequence and I thought it was funny and kind of cabaret but look good and then afterwards one of the other acts message me and said I just want to say that my friend was in the audience tonight and you really inspired her to buy a swimsuit because she didn't WanNa buy some soup for holidays and you're such an inspiration to she. Thought if Debra can do it also the swimsuit so let me a fucking swimsuit inspiration. Yeah I want people look at me and think I can't do that. Why was it no look at the swimsuit go? I would never be able to pull it off. Don't find inspiration in my no. I wanted to have it. What does that mean? Yeah I've been able to let it go. I've not been able to let it go. I'm feminist bus. I saw a cat dressed two two two so that it looks like it had arms coming out of it cites it was like a front only situation like a babe but it looks at the front like the cat is wearing wearing a pink Tutu with point shoes and my first thought was. Where can I get one of those for toast? It's not a feminist outfit. Not Not that balance isn't feminist but to address your cat in. I guess well we have to question the agency of the cat at this point. Yeah does does the CAT WANNA be in sequence toast would no. I'm a feminist but I think top gear in the grand tour. Where are the best television? I've ever seen I genuinely think Jeremy Clarkson and may make the best. Tell you Joe Kendo thank you thank you.

That's the best. It Guest Co host Avocados special guest. This is the guilty feminist.

We're not GONNA have any. I read something today where they Sainsbury said that. There's going to be like like gaps on the shelves. They're just not gonna be able to get stuff in the brexit well. I was just thinking when it comes to Brexit when life gives you limit your like yeah we have lemons. Yes turned turn. It can't wait when life gives you lemons at least you won't have scurvy is very much the brexit no deal slogan hope. Boris puts it on a bus US going to campaign to say. Hey We got through the blitz. That's basically what is going to be. But I always think because people do say we got through the blitz bursting but we didn't vote for the blitz and if we had accidentally voted for the blades we would have had a second referendum and said. Aw please so I'm saying blitz. I think that should be the new BREXIT HASHTAG DOC is Hashtag nope blitz absolutely so my story in terms of Lemons and lemonade. I think my whole career is actually lemonade. That I've made the lemon of
"fleabag" Discussed on 10 Things To Tell You
"I like a different different type of humor so either like there was a little bit of a difference between that of season one and say that for most it was less shocking and you. Are you know Oh really layered in season two but isn't that the point isn't that what she was trying to do is she. This character this this person. Our friend is overly hyper. Sexual focused obsessed masturbating hooking hooking up nine orgasms and night like go in the full monty anyone to hook up with her out of pain and loss and grief and like so scared that she's not worthy because she hates herself actually where season two she'd actually chooses to remain a bit celebrate for most of the season because she's in touch with actually who she really is. She's come to place of acceptance of forgiving herself and is actually fall in love one and she's also punishing ourself off. I feel like Oh at the beginning. She's done all these things to get healthy like the pendulum swing the other way and she's kind of scared to go back into those it was quote unquote problem situations kind of thing a little bit yeah because of the big reveal at the end of season one now listen. This is a spoiler. You're full episodes so if you have not watched these only listen if you don't plan on because we are. GonNa talk all the spoilers here but I screamed out loud. I scream the one you didn't see it coming that she has been coming not for one second so I did see it coming that she had been the one that had renew it because it was in the recap. It's not actually very smart about how they do. As a recap so you'll know that her friend died and got hit by the bus and you know that but it does not not really tell you that she's the reason why the died which hangs up coming to I watched it with ABC's one and to watch it with them and second episode he goes she did it. Oh interesting we shall see and I'm just like if you how would you subas coming. I thought coming a little bit too but not by the second episode Hank must be very good but by the middle because they do little flashes to her and battening the pants and you know that they flash to the friend being like he slept with someone else he's up with someone else and there and I saw your smart. I I was completely. He lost in like Oh. She's having a sexual so that does make you back to the season one two argument she is in such a deep place place at the end of season of guilt and shame and I'm a despicable human being and I'm never gonNA have sex with anyone else again and reef arief. She wishes she had died. You know it had been her and they never circle back to this. This is a total aside but she does say in the second season. She's more clearer than it is at the first season that it kills her friends accident. Her friends like suicide. Slash Accident Kills Three people. Oh I miss that they only say at once the bike hitter and then she and then it through into traffic and she bye bye or whatever like they give one explanation of the whole thing and then they never go back to work. You don't think it was metaphorical that killed her two like killed feedback maybe so but who would be the third person a friend. I don't know I took it as literal of Oh. This was like a massive crazy accident accident so it wasn't so not only is she carrying well. If its littoral not only is she carrying her friend's death but innocent people got breath right. I mean they're all innocent but you know what I mean. If I could ask our friend phoebe question I would want to know if she wrote flee back from personal experience or this is how generally she views women and sexuality. I thought it was very interesting that a women a woman in writer. A female writer would write a season exploring a woman's hyper sexuality with its genesis being pain pain and self loathing not liberation and freedom from a feminist point of view. I think we as women want to say say that. We're like men and our sexuality is free and open and can be spontaneous and shocking because of those cultural stereotypes us that women should be that way so. I did think it was. I WOULD WANNA know did she. Does she see it that way well. She gives one little speech in the cafe. I'm pretty sure this is in season one where she says where she kind of likes spells that I it isn't season because the one thing that you don't get from season to do you understand that she stole the statue like all the jokes from the first one. I think you can get if you're watching season do saint alone. The one thing that you actually don't get is the banker guy who the loan office vallone officer and when he comes back at the end of season one to sort of give her the loan she confesses she confessed Asas and she has a thing. I've actually think she's alone when she gives a little speech or maybe she's not alone but anyway she gives a little speech about like she scared of growing older. She scared of what's going to be when she's not sexually contractive will want to do that. No one will want to do her and does everyone think about this and not talk about it or am. I broken yes some way and I felt like that's the thesis to the to the whole thing not just about sex although sexes like the most tangible way to understand that concept but just like is there. There's something that everyone's thinking about not talking about or am I the only one that was the most powerful scene of the whole season. Oh so powerful and you also. We'll get to see her a few times. This happens overall seasons but you really get to see her not hiding behind humor or sarcasm the more the other broken people around her. It's just her alone saying yes. I'm broken. It's only a few times in the whole season but you see actually be very truthful about what's going on inside because the whole season she's being cheeky sarcastic dismissive hilarious in a very crass way and then you have this one moment where you're or this one true intense moment where she kinda shares the only one so the first episode of season two. I think is one of the most brilliant and episodes of anything I've ever watched ever. It's it's just them in the restaurant. It starts out with her bloody nose and she hands the towel to somebody bloody on the floor. You have no idea what they do that whole meal with all the family dynamics all of family dynamics and the hot priest who were introduced to obviously for the first time and he liked says while this is a really positive family family. I think it's the best episode of television I I watched it and was it was great. It really was great it was I was like this is fantastic and I want want to watch the rest but the second time I watched it. I watched it like with my mouth open of like this is not right. This is brilliant the waitress that keeps trying to pour the wine who ends up being the one look it. I mean it's just so good at the beginning of that first episode of Season Two she looks at the camera and says this is a love story and I got chills when I said it because what's gotten so much buzz as the hot priest obviously we're talking about of course because he cannot talk about but like I did when I did are- watch when she says this is a love story like I'm almost going to cry. I was like because to me like the relationship with her. Sister is as important as a relationship with a priest and relationship to her dad while not as it it is like in in the mom who you never get to meet them on but just that the mom is always like ever present in the background all the time in every scene between the sisters in the Dad. This is a love story. It's so true. It's a love story of of the sisters. You're absolutely right there. Annoyances the anger the betrayal but ultimately through it all is love that that threads through it they haven't spoken in a year when season two begins because of the bombshell season one spoken in the year and the first meeting she still chooses was her sister over everybody to protect her to lie for her and take the blame to save her sisters dignity. Take it as kind of is her role in the family You know scapegoat but willing to do that to protect your sister all costs totally and then her sister ends up saying a few episodes later at the big party for her work when she she basically admits I I know that my husband kissed you like they do continue to choose each other even though they reject each other Jack but when she says I when Claire The sister who I unfortunately related to so much I'm so much more clear than fleabag forty five million times. It's more of Clare than a playback like I have very rigid rules. I don't think things are funny. Obviously funny I like I I just under coldhearted co-partner. I'm just like I'm super clear in my in my mind I very clear and when she says we are not friends we are sisters. Get Your own friends. I was like this is why I mean. I have a sister. My sister isn't like Cleveland or like Claire. I'm the only person in my actual literal sister relationship that is anything like this show my sister's wonderful but do you have a system of two sisters cow. Did you take the Claire Fleabag relationship. Oh I couldn't get enough of of their relationship actually wanted more because both are so opposite and this magnetic force that does not wants to be together and yet it's always drawn to each other and keep whether they choose not keep choosing each other even that scene where she says what you did was absent despicable kickable thank you you know it's it's clear having to say like you were terrible and you lied and that was horrible and I thank you for it. You know the understanding why oh you did it and that she needed actually and there was also two things when they've had this terrible dinner at the end of episode one. They've had this terrible crazy dinner and at the end clear is waiting for her with a taxi and they get into taxi together and they're driving away. There's been a miscarriage. There's been a whatever for an fleabag says. Take the nearest hospital and then there's silence for quite a long time and then. Claire says that priestess quite hot and I was like you're dead. It's it's just like that's what sisters are you can have. The most the heaviest thing that's happening and then somebody will make a joke and it's fine or somebody somebody will say something completely off topic. I died laughing because it's such an intense scene where she's having a miscarriage and she finally is allowing her sister to take her to the hospital title and she's addressing the thing that both have thought the whole night and the timings inappropriate and it's not the thing you're supposed to be like worried about right now. You should be worried about unborn baby but she's like pre. Capris ads just so good..

It changes you it. You're thinking about her. She she become like a great book that you can't stop thinking about the characters the same there are some universal things like you're saying about having someone someone to someone else love unrequited being drawn to the thing that you can have and yet allowing yourself to go there to be set up for pain but not all along that you would be hurt art weird weird family dynamics and a sense of not liking who you are and acting out because has of it and then growing to be someone who loves who they are and act in a way despite of it sense and I think that ultimately he does absolve her by loving her even though doesn't choose her for the rest of his life he has proven to her that she is worthy of being love absolutely and capable of being loved capable rule of being seen all the way and still being cherished and wanted yes.

The "Transparent Musicale Finale" is a fitting eulogy for a wacky, messy series
"The last episode of the Amazon series transparent created by Jill Solloway the show premiered in the fall of two thousand fourteen before the Marvelous Mrs Mazel before fleabag that's back when Amazon was still mostly known for selling boxes of stuff not for winning emmys before transparent arrived arrived stories about Trans people were largely untold on TV. Show was lauded but also criticized for casting Jeffrey tambor assists gendered man to play the parent who transitions instead of a trans actor Solloway wants defended the choice by saying that the part was written based on the true story Uppsala ways parent who transitioned in two thousand fifteen solloway one emmy for outstanding directing in a comedy thank you to the Trans Community for your lived saved lives to stop violence against transgender women and toppled the Patriarchy top two years later when the fourth season dropped Tambour was accused of sexual harassment by to Trans Women on the show.

Hostless Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low
"The Emmy awards were last night and for a second year in a row the ratings hit it and all time low but bad news for broadcast. TV was good news for streaming joining me to recap the ceremony is the chief TV critic at Variety Daniel Daniel Diario. Hi How are you. I'm good. I WanNa ask you this whole idea of the hostess award show. It feels like it's not going away anytime soon. If you were to grade the as on how they handled it. What kind of Marx would you give them. I would give the EMMYS a failing grade for how they handled filling in the gaps without got a host. I thought all of the interstitial bits all of the comedy all the attempts to explain to the audience what TV was fell totally flat. I will say one positive fringe benefit was that I noticed that fewer stars were being played off and the longer speeches were more impactful and more thoughtful every other aspect of the production. I thought didn't work and I missed the presence of a kind of guiding intelligence. Let's listen to the speeches that did get to run a little bit longer. This is Michelle Williams accepting her emmy for playing gwen Verdon and Fosse Verdon and so the next time a woman especially a woman of color because she stands to make fifty two cents on the dollar compared to her white. Male counterpart tells you what we need to order to do her job. Listen to her the. I think it's important to note Michelle. Williams has simone history with this. She went back for some re-shoots on the movie all the money in the world. She got paid a thousand thousanddollars. Mark Wahlberg got a million and a half so this is a personal issue for her but it feels like the really did discover something by not playing Michelle. How Williams off absolutely I think I mean I feel as though if you think back a couple of years when Nicole Kidman won for big little lies she ultimately we got to give a long speech about what she learned about domestic violence in the role but she was kind of fighting with the orchestra in a way that kind of sapped the dignity and meaning of the moment the fact that Williams was able to kind of speak in Kristalina way as composed she was carrying across these points that were personal to her relevant to the project relative to Hollywood. I thought it was really important on unfortunately with the viewership being what it was. I'm not sure how many people saw these great points but I I still think it was important. Let's talk about the viewership because it does appear that the ratings were an all time low for the Emmy Broadcast and it does. I feel like what was celebrated. Last night was not network television. I think Saturday night live with the only network show that picked up any emmy's in the primetime ceremony last tonight. Does it feel us if this is a network show that celebrating stuff that you would never see on any network. Yes it feels as though this is a network show that not only we celebrate stuff that doesn't air on network but stuff that never could I mean fleabag show. I greatly admired that was the night's big winner in comedy is so so far beyond I think what the great network watching still extant mill American audience is accustomed to that basically could come from another planet. I think what this means for. The EMMYS is an existential question going forward of what the show can do and where it should even be. Would this be better better served. If we put the Amazon Netflix would be better served. We put it on

There were a few three just kept seeing the new netflix seven million. Leeann streaming sites now and there were commercials for all of them and there's a lot of apple plus huge. I feel like it anyway back to fashion. I also might think probably my favorite was purchase. There's Clarkson. She did like blonde more tissue atoms which is real kate everything you want from purchase. Clarkson ever but yeah it was great never looked great. We all oh really Zendaya so late though like we didn't really see your until she walked out in glasses she present which was fabulous. She's got the marvel money and she's a cool kid. So Oh yes you need to get there early. That's true. Actually she doesn't have marvel money anymore. Right right YEP per spiderman series is dead. Maybe they only mice. I'd still like to you see how that's ultimately resolved but yeah we know about that stuff too. I WANNA share that Kid Harrington who I generally have no interest in as John Snow or in real life but I thought he looks phenomenal Q. Like the Best I've ever seen him. Maybe yes maybe the best never looked tie really channeling Richard Madden which was a great look for him also recommended not show which was Sassou. Ask You guys see what Richard Man did in debt yeah bill t rex out of Lego instagram could for him huge flex. You know I'd like to nominate Emilia Clarke while around the gas are- if Valentino I I'd love to know about. I assume it's tape. That's involved in this attraction but she's wearing confidence. She looks great. I was so ready to root against I'm sorry I did but she made it a little bit more difficult than I had plans. At least you followed through my Rudolph and Michelle Williams both in floral patterns both looking great really really enjoyed that more Michelle Williams in a few minutes. I liked Natasha. Leones look also should we talk about Natasha. Leone clapping. Yeah you're cool. Kidman Adman clapping apparently it is interesting way of clapping. It is like she just learnt how a small child when you teach them how to do applies their hands together but she was consistent in it. She applauded for a lot of people which we appreciate. I really liked it. She was wearing glasses during the show. I just love glasses formal. Look look at the Oscars Golden Globes and EMMYS. It's very common and I think it's a great I would do it. Billy Puerto Ricans and also the formal yes. It's a great addition. It's fake furnished. We're on the same the same people to do it because like young always does it. Oprah as a love the former bosses Amanda. I'm happy to tell you that the Tasha Leo Gift of her clapping readily available for whenever you need that's great people are ready. I think that makes sense. I'm just going to try to do it in my own life. One more nomination. Naomi watts she looks phenomenal and black just logged in just great the new game of thrones star new game. It's just getting ready. I I liked we'll talk a lot more reckoning with routes but I like to the end of the show how David any off who is my one true love can be like and now it's over we did it and now it is over totally disavowing try to shut out any notions of the prequels and spin offs that are that are coming alright great injection positively positively we'll ride this enthusiasm into talking about the most awkward moment of evening which was allow a complicated one which was when. Phoebe Waller Bridge won on Best Actress in a comedy beating out Julia Louis Dreyfuss in her final season as Lena Meyer from beep and bridges incredibly happy. Kate was incredibly happy. Many people on the Internet were incredibly happy. Let's get this out of the way. This is a pro fleabag podcast. You're lovely about free. It's one of the best things that that I've seen in any medium in two thousand and nineteen. Maybe in the decade yet great up there yeah fix perfect episodes a season two. Yes at flawless sure but Julia Louis Dreyfus purpose is probably the best television actress of in history. Yeah I think she's like Lucille Ball and Carol channing. Yes and she had one for veep. I believe every season she had been nominated and she was going to break the record for the most emmy wins by a woman of of all time and she she is there's also a breast cancer survivor yeah and that happened between these seasons so I think we all assumed that this would be her emmy and and it was not and that's the way the cookie crumbles moreover everyone in the room assuming yes so it was like the most tepid response. It's a win from a show that is universally praised yes. I'm sure that no one's like fleabag doesn't deserve it deserve. It really sucks sucks. That's how the point just was such an incredibly awkward moment. Totally I think okay like root for history. It's like when you walk or it's and you want to see a record broken or you. You want like someone's got hot. Hand you want to leave him in the game but as long as possible like it's okay to root for history it's okay to experience that moment and it was just really awkward. Yeah and it's also a fever waller. Bridge did not really read the room in that moment. I was wondering I guess veep is maybe not a big deal in the UK. They don't care about it. They're like we have in the loop. We don't actually need the American version of IANUCCI stuff but she was like thanking her agent and I just it wasn't the note that you wanted at that. Moment also weird for her to be profusely thanking or agent given the feud between writers and agents right now. Yes weird moment. It was not mentioned once during the entire telecast now's house per day and there was a lot of ignoring everything going on TV. No one was talking about streaming services. Everyone was just you know thinking whatever likes Amazon that that helped them. A lot of Amazon wants by the way but yeah it just it. It was uncomfortable. Even though it was happy yeah it's like not undeserved served right with the moment felt wrong and it. Kinda sucks then for our bread shoes. True talent is actually Frank Kayla. I will say like she seems super for actress to me in that moment in a way. I don't like to acknowledge and I just like Oh. This is a real actress but she also had just been up there like I think it would have been different if she hadn't won anything yet yet right right right so she had just been up there. She's up there again. It's like Oh you again like everyone loves her but like it is. It would have been different than if it had just been the first win for few celebrity yeah so it's tough. It's a no win a little bit she continued to she did continue to win now. She did and it was awesome. That fleabag won best comedy. US totally detailing curling. Everyone say their favorite episode man you go first the last one I mean come on the answer here. I soon as you said that to me. I I also kind of don't think of them as discreet right so it's entirely it was just one you could put those together and it would be like one very long movie and it would be kind of perfect shorter then some worth celebrating movies kate the first episode the pilot was the second season yeah great one of the Jumpsuit Yeah Mine's the number three's Kristin Scott Thomas See Russia Kristin Scott Thurow's Jonzon hot priest socially tough but you got yeah Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh yeah that's a trade. That's funeral so many other version of one yeah one we don't talk about the new one in the really funny thing about season into fleabag is just like everyone acknowledges now including TV while our bridge how essential Andrew Scott as you play the AK Moriarty too many of us who watched Sir Lock. Yeah weird very greatest in yeah. It was really cool and she when she turned to him accepting best comedy. It was like we did this because Andrew. You're Scott came in and that was cool. It was great and also you finally got to be on stage which was good so a motive. Actually I just want to say I love back. I don't need any more Brett Gelman twenty twenty between fleabag and stranger things. Yeah Ozone Lot shred amount of everything done. We're done offense. I guess it's it's really inherently offensive thing okay moving on so that was like a low and then and then I within a low below the recovered itself yeah. Just I mean it is remarkable. It's saying that is a special as fleabag actually won the emmys. We don't see actually the best. Things don't usually win awards. That's literally every awards show and fleabag winning and phoebe Waller winning for writing. It's just like wow we did it. That's great yeah so that was good good job on this one thing good Johnson. Okay Okay Hi Michelle Williams speech amazing stuff amazing stuff. This is also what happens when you practice and you prepare and she had clearly given some thought to what she wanted to say and not. Maybe she wrote it. I'm not really sure because it was definitely well-crafted and she hit her points but it was more that she had an idea and she wanted to turn this into It's a speech about equal pay which is like something. She's been crosshairs about a lot. If you remember when they did the re-shoots for I guess it was called all the money in the world it was the Getty Nassar Getty show out of it so Kevin Spacey's the Laura for Christopher plummer and they did the re shoots her fi versus Mark Wahlberg fee. Yes she took like a daily fee and Mark Wahlberg at one point five million dollars and then it became a thanks so she I used that in order to talk about a Fosse verdant. FX And the support and what happens when you actually do support of working specifically women have car work. She just like she had the stats. That's she nailed it.

"fleabag" Discussed on The Frame
"K._p._c._c. dismissed the mole <hes> come on just she really picks battles phoebe and she is a true collaborator to the absolute last but this was one that she was. I would not back down on and she just sort of said the report that you will get between us that you get for free. You won't get with anyone else and <hes> the chemistry and it's been commented on a lot which has been really special for us because we really feel. It's there so it's really nice when other people see it to play a clip from a scene from this currency. He's an about you and your sister clarin fleabag and about their kind of conflicted messy but in the end i think varies very beautiful the whole relationship take this. I'll try not down. Cooed him if you need him. He's a very good lawyer. Surprisingly tender ankle missile. What you did in the restaurant was unforgivable thank you i think that almost defines things their relationship. What you did was unforgivable. Thank you and they obviously there are days where they don't get along very well but ultimately even if their tactics tactics or slightly flawed they really care and are trying to protect each other. I love this relationship. It feels so truthful to me. <hes> it really it. Reflects my own experience of having a sister <hes> <hes> the suit of the nuance of that is captured. It's so beautifully in this series. I've never seen it <hes> portrayed like this on a on a television screen before in a film anywhere i've never seen it <hes> so accurately depicted will i'm starting to realize is that all the characters sort of mentioned things that it.
Emmy nominations are out and HBO is back on top for now.
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Bat obviously the Emmy nominations came out this past week and my first reaction was really to admire the wealth of material that is so oh good and you know the academy. The television academy has been paddled in the past for the sort of reflexive conservative re-nominating modern family teen times not that there's anything a great series it but got to the point where it seemed crazy just keep nominating and over and over again this time there is some really fresh interesting shows and actually some formidable matchups yeah I mean I think a lot of the headlines that came out of the Emmy nominations were based on game of thrones getting a record thirty two nominations but if you look deeper there are a lot of nuance shows like fleabag getting into the comedy race killing Eve in the drama race bowl shows from phoebe waller bridge if you look. Ed Shits Creek which is a word. I don't know if we can say on the radio <hes> but it is spell with a C. H.. In two TS <hes> that's a show that has been on for a number of years and not gotten much attention but the ground swell of love for the stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara got popped T._v.. Its first emmy nominations and there's a lot of Nice little narratives like that yeah I I was late to the Shits Creek Party. Yes it is going to say that word and <hes> benched it on Netflix like so many people I was like Oh look what I found on Netflix when really pop would probably like to assassinate me for even saying that except be really can binged on Netflix and it's pretty great. I'm also really impressed by the very high impact series that ran. They're not in the same category we have the R Kelly series from lifetime in the in one category up against <hes> Leah Remedies Scientology series and weirdly comedians in cars. I mean very very very different kind of material. Anthony Bourdain also is going to be I think for a lot of people an emotional choice but that r Kelly dock as we know he's imprisoned or Kelly right now and I think a lot of credit goes not only to Jim de regardless the journalists who pursued. Him For so long but Dream Hampton and lifetime for doing that series and if you look at the authorities who arrested r Kelly they specifically cited that Docu series as being the thing that opened there is to what was going on and if I'm lifetime I'm looking at that and saying wow that should be our emmy materials because this is the best advertisement you could get for winning. An award is that there's real world impact. You might think that the H._B._O.. Series leaving nevertheless would be in the same category with the R Kelly but it's not <hes> and it is up against you know things that are so diverse in and you know again. This is golden age in many ways some of the stuff I mean minding the gap and this points to the confusion. What's a T._v.? Show what's a movie mining. The gap was an Oscar contender this now also an emmy contender. That's happened before in the last few years and it's it's confusing and in the same category you have you know Jane Fonda Series and <hes> thing about Gilda radner and the it's it's a very <hes> odd set of. Things to be competing with each other but talking about cultural impact. I think you know I don't even know if we can measure what the impact of that series was but I think it was huge yeah. The breath of the nominees is one of the reasons that H._B._O.. Oh really clobbered Netflix this year. If you remember from last year the big narrative was at after seventeen years netflix finally overtook H._B._O.. As the top nominee at the emmys this year no such luck now obviously game of thrones was a big reason and for that but even if you take out the number one nominee on both of them game of Thrones H._B._O.. And when they see us the central park five miniseries on Netflix H._B._O.. Would still be the winner this year and that might be the Swan Song. I think in the future is going to be really difficult for H._B._O.. To compete with what Netflix is doing now. We're seeing the output of H._B._O.. Increase via this new streaming service called H._B._O.. Max that was announced last week but in the short term Netflix Netflix is really focused on winning awards and they are green-lighting things with an eye on whether they can win Oscars Emmy's so for the foreseeable future. I predict the emmy champion is going to be Netflix but it's going to be a nice party this year.
"fleabag" Discussed on Animal Spirits Podcast
"If if fleabag was made in the nineties early two thousands, it would have been a crappy cheesy romantic comedy. But because we have streaming now TV picks up the slack for bad movies. And so I didn't realize someone sent me some stuff after tweeted about it. Fleabag was made for two seasons. It's only two seasons. So the end of the second season was like the series finale and the whole second season was so good. And she fricken nailed the landing on ending. It was so good and afterwards, I told my weapon like that was an awesome movie that we never would have got before streaming existed in. So recall my Pitney is I can stop complaining about there being so many bad movies, because that has given us really, really good TV shows. And maybe in the past a lot of the good actors and actresses wouldn't have done TV before she to question. I think you lost me. I think he lost me. How is it pick up the slack for shooting movies? Because a lot of the good stories in terms of like drama, and comedy has gone from movies to TV shows, and so you just get a little, it's just you get a longer version of a movie in a TV show and more character development. And again, this would have been shortened, it would have been some cheesy romantic comedy with math Mikan, hand, Jennifer Aniston, or Adam Sandler, or something. And it wouldn't have been nearly as good. I follow. I think speaking of that there's a new Adam Sandler movie on Netflix with Jennifer Aniston. They're no gosh. Yeah. Boy, I mean good for him. He's, he's bringing in the paychecks. And all, but I couldn't tell us I watch this movie. Thank you for to why charts. Thank you for listening. Cincinnati mail to animal spirits pilot.

Stephen Thompson, what is making you happy this week funny, while smoke? As of this taping got to see a concert by an old old favorite an artist. I've seen live, probably thirty times Glen Hansard from take me. I you were moving of the frames of the swell season. And as a solo artist among those different configurations seen him live, dozens and dozens of times, and the show was electric and wonderful if you get a chance to see this guy live. He is. Absolutely incredible played for two and a half hours. I then when driving into work this morning. Dusted off. I know Linda, this is a favourite of yours. An album by the frames called set list, which is one of the best live albums by any artist you will ever hear the about fifteen years old. It's a frames album in front of an extremely adoring Irish crowd as Glen Hansard star of the. Movie once plays these big bombastic, beautiful songs. But also, then just gives these little monologues between songs that are so warm and so funny and so opted, it is an enormously, cathartic experience listening to it after having put it aside for years and years just as powerful just as warm just as big hearted as it's ever been. If you know Glen Hansard from once, and you'd never really went back into his frames catalog. There is just such a rich array of what should just be rock classics. I stepped away from it for a really, really long time, and it's such a joy to rediscover amazing. You know, I'm with you on this one, buddy. Thank you very much. Stephen Thompson berry hardy, man, what is making you happy this week? So last week, I was lucky enough to go as, as I do every year or two book expo America, which is a where you meet with publishers, and you get to see all the great stuff that's coming up. And there is a lot of great stuff coming up and what? I'm really loving right now, are all of these wonderful books about relationships, which actually kind of work really. Coming out of fleabag. I'm like, I'm really in this moment for relationships, whether it be with God or your girlfriend or your husband or whatever some wonderful books coming up. Patsy by Nicole. Dennis Ben, which is this wonderful book about motherhood and immigration, which is wonderful a sharp sharp book about a, an MFA program called bunny by Mona Awad. I'm looking at you, Glenn.

Well, then what is making you happy this week? You know what I hate Linda Holmes mosquitoes? True. I'm I'm your server, seven-year feeders be capable your fingers play thought I do hate them. And I have always hated them. I am not freshly incensed because I'm halfway through the mosquito, a human history of our deadliest predator by Timothy c wind guard. This is a brick. It's one hundred ninety six pages. It comes out August six he is making what is so far a very persuasive case that the mosquito is the single most powerful force in determining humanity's. Fate it has changed the outcome of major wars. And by one estimate that is in all the material promoting this book. He believes they are responsible for the deaths of just about fifty percent of the people who have ever lived on the planet. It's hugely impressive. It's a major work, and it's the kind of book that makes me just as I say, freshly incensed with every page 'cause I hate them so much. Thank you Glen, Weldon. What is making me happy this week? You don't need me to tell you about always be my. Maybe now streaming on Netflix. It is a romantic comedy. It stars Randall park and Ali Wong. He is of fresh.
"fleabag" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"Sixteen Phoebe Waller bridge presented the world with the bag a series co produced for Amazon and British TV she not only writes, the show, but she stars in it, too. She plays a young woman only referred to as fleabag, who's bruised by external and internal struggles and in two thousand nineteen the show came back for its second. And we're told final season fleabag is funny and sad and sexy touching on grief family, and in the second season faith co-stars include Sean Clifford is fleabag sister Oscar, winner over the Coleman s her godmother and pending stepmother, and Andrew Scott as the priest she meets in season two I'm Stephen Thompson, and I'm Linda Holmes here with me. And Stephen in the studio is Glen, Weldon, NPR's arts, S, K, Glenn. And in our fourth chair, it's always a pleasure to have with us. We ended ish in books editor berry Hardiman, Highbury. Oh, it's fleabag. Now we talked about. A little bit in the first season. We don't always return to shows in the second season. But this was one where I don't know what your Twitter experience was. But as soon as this dropped people started convincing me to try to get to the second season to the point where I felt a little bullied. Did you have that experience in your various timelines? Well, actually, I resisted the second season for a while, only because and you can check the tape. I said that fleabag season. One was the best thing on television, twenty sixteen and I also said on that same pop culture. Happy hour that I do not want a season two because that first season nailed the dismount in a way that I have not experienced in a hugely satisfying way. So when I went into it, I went in with arms crossed and kind of grumpy. And, and became a self fulfilling prophecy, the first time through I wasn't digging it largely because as you say it is a lot about grappling with issues of faith. And that's basically sports to me. In the negative sense. It's just, you know, I've said this before I'll say it again. It's like reading an owner's manual to a car. I don't own something that's super meaningful to it, doesn't it doesn't resonate with. But then I got the assignment to review it for we can addition Sunday. I figured I owed it another look. And that time I could see it a lot more. Clearly, I was not distracted by all the face stuff, which, again is not my gym. It's doing something with a much higher degree of difficulty than season. One is doing because it's not it doesn't have that built in narrative structure of a central mystery and a huge revelation I it is trying to tackle something that crazy ex girlfriend tried to tackle and successfully and its ladder, seasons of someone trying to get better. And that comes with a different kind of payoff, the process, we're getting better his fits and starts a lot smaller. It's a lot more delicate, I thought than season one and I thought it was hugely satisfying. Yeah. Barry. How did you come down on season two? The first season I felt very much like it was the I loved it so much. I found myself truly sobbing through the last episode. And when I really like something like. I am not. I'm just not good enough to not want more. So give it to me all over again. Even if it's the same so I so I entered. And I thought I f Assode ISM masterpiece of the second season. And so after that the dinner party. Yeah. End it's the it's also the jumpsuit. So I mean everything about it was like here, you go Phoebe Waller bridge as fleabag. And by the way, the people in the show, don't call her fleabag. That's confusing to you. That's just what the show materials refer to her as she has. No name in the show. Nobody gives her a name and neither does the priests that she has this kind of friendship relationship with in season..
"fleabag" Discussed on The Televerse
"I figured out this concept of love, and that speech at the that he gives as sort of like service like loving very, very hard. And I think is just a really good way of summing everything up for the season, but also very specifically summing up how fleabag feels about us in this idea of, like, all right? I've loved you and it's time for you to leave now type from Italy because. Any to do something else? I need to be the person who doesn't rely on you anymore. And I think that's just really potent and really powerful and the way in which they built up that trope. And also, by having hot be able to see us or not. See us. But no. That we're kind of they're in the same way that he knows. God is there, I think is also the Zach sort of best way of summing it up. And it was just really powerful that walking away, plus the little wave. Yeah. But she gives all it's good. It's a she's making up with us and time away. I guess maybe that's how I think of it. I feel like she needs some time away. And I would be super I can, I would be happy for season three and I don't think she needs to be unhealthy for us to see season three but I think that it needs. To be. Different it would have to be different. But I feel like I mean if she wants to while bridges shown that, you know. There's plenty that she can bring to this, you know, as soon as soon as she has an idea for what she wants to do for season three I'm there with bells on certainly. Yeah. Yeah. I would be to let on it. Well, do vary and from all accounts he's into various excellent. So that's another one on my list of catch up with but yeah. Is just and I also really liked that the store is just doing well, and we don't spend much time there, but like L little early seen like oh, it's going great. It's great. No. Really, it is actually going great. Like I've got chatty Wednesdays now. Yeah. It was it was like this idea, getting breaking away from the, the failure career but successful in your relationships or vice versa, you know that they don't even worry about that in is so much of this prompted by the change in her lie. The whole season just prompted by a change in her life, which is the introduction of this priest character, and the stress surrounding of others marriage. Yeah. It's really. Yeah. Is I just I was blown away this season. I feel like I've been very have been not eloquent at all talking about it, but the, the way that the season has her grapple with her identity and her. Guilt, and her ability to forgive herself. In be seen. By her sister by her father by by hot priests, who I don't remember his name, it's gonna keep calling priest. No, that's, that's his name name. Okay. Okay. Good. I feel better now. It was really is really compelling so, yeah, well, done to the team over at fleabag, and I look forward to all of the podcast and think pieces that I will go look up now that we've talked about it.

"fleabag" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest
"But I don't know that I took this as being a purely ATS perspective on religion. I mean, I think what they wore meant is that. I think it's pretty rare to like get a perspective like this, where I think it's mostly coming from a secular perspective, but having disliked. Like deep respect for someone who wants to twos. Eight faith and stick to it. It's I think more what I meant. Yeah. I it takes it seriously. It doesn't mock it or kind of hold it at at a distance. I agree. What was with the shows interest in? Fox's what did that mean? It's not. Fox's in general, right? It's connected to the priests. Specifically, he says that FOX's follow him everywhere. He's paranoid that there are FOX's nearby. I don't know quite what to make of that. I kind of thought the implication was that fleabag is one of the foxes, who is always plaguing him. Right. I think it's but the actual scene where he talks about that. He so quirky and weird about it. And it's such an odd thing that it does seem charming and off priest. Harming pretty VM coming around say, but an or it's just an interesting thing wouldn't you be interested in a person who FOX's are interested in it was very weirdly like manic pixie dream priest. Yes, that he's followed by FOX's wherever he goes literal. Fox's I I, I was like, oh, it's a metaphor, but then at the very end it's born out after he and fleabag part ways a FOX goes by. And she says he went that way and the FOX goes on its way. Yeah. And then our fleabag decides not or the buses cancelled. So she goes off in the other direction. And that's when we see, like the audience experiences its final goodbye to her because she she's like sort of signals to the camera that it, it can't come and walks off alone. When point she waves goodbye? So. I think we're meant to see that in a positive light. It's, it's her. She's not going to disassociate and go off to this place anymore. She's going to be fully present in her life. So it's this profound moment of growth. But also, we don't get to see more this is why I don't want another season is I feel to have her regrets and go back to the camera. It, it would be kind of cheapen that, last it can be like a temporary thing like she's having a baby. So she goes crazy or don't know. And it comes that I so don't want it was just the first thing that came from. I know I know. Okay. But, but I'm just I'm saying that I feel like we got a very, it's not even so much about closure, but that's just such an important moment of growth that if the they were to come up with a third season and have her back to looking into the camera, I would feel changed any, I think that when you have a show, what such a strong tons up closure by. Bye general pendency also to just say leave it alone. But I think with these two seasons they have symphony nominal that if there's anyone to trust it's probably the bridge with this particular character. So I'm I give her the benefit of doubt. I would prefer to see her work on other projects such as can leave and the next bond movie, which now. And Fran if they cameras she rolls or just her voice because I loved her in solo Star Wars story, she played a droid and she was phenomenal. Yeah. I mean, I hope she goes on to do other amazing things, but I, she should act to, and she should create an star in right her on things. She just has to as a ninety nine percent of the audience for cell that not until solo you are wrong. Marisa, I'm wrong about what that she's not or of her, like Floyd's performance for a stupidly allies to character. Well, all right. We spoiler special for solo has passed. We'll leave that one alone. So I think we all like this show. It's fair to say, right? No, I'm just gonna s phenomenal. It's a really good show as much as we're divided on Prestatyn. Est I think we can agree that fleabag is worth watching for sure. I, I think the one thing I would say is I really liked it, but I'm a little mystified with how much everyone loved it and is raving about it. I, I really liked it. But I can't it didn't rock, my world in, in the way that some people are I think everything about it is great. But, like I feel like I missing one piece. What about you? And you would definitely say the same thing, I saw the second season may be like a month ago or maybe like six weeks ago, and I was talking about with other friends who have seen early, and we also have this, this was like before the height machine like really affect. And we were sort of all sitting around talking about how it was like very enjoyable, but, like none of particularly stuck with me. I think it stuck even less than say like season one. And so I like I thought it was super enjoyable, but I feel like it didn't like particularly speak to me on, like a very profound level. And I remember telling somebody that a lot like as much as I am, like pro hot free. I also sort of feel like the priests stuff works for you better. Maybe like if you are Catholic a new art like working under like structures of like ooh. This is the forbidden as opposed to me, a non-catholic, who is sort of, like, yeah, I get it. Like you're not supposed to fuck a priest. But here you are doing it. And so, like, I would say like get me like on a gut level, but those things are always like very subjective. So I get that, like, if it doesn't work for me that doesn't mean lower for other people. I'm. Surprised given the conversation, we just had that you don't think this is a profound show. I think I, I so open to enter relation it's a profound shell. It's great, but we're just saying we're not like changed and moved by it. Yes, there are definitely shows that have run this year alone where I have been like, what the speaks me like on the core level of who I am as a person. And I think it's fine that this wasn't one of those shows because everyone's different. Yeah. But I guess there's this feeling where I wanted to be I wonder what I missing or something or I'm like, is this internalized misogyny that I find this story too small or something, I don't know. Feel that way. I mean like on the no, the hype machine is real. I'm really I feel like this is my conductor but I think with a smaller show like this, where it's really only like two hours and change and all appears on, like one day, I think that there is a sense in, I think that like it is sort of, like feeling among a lot of certain critics who want to advocate per show that, like you have to be extra mile to people to listen. And so if before talking about it in hyperbolic, raves I understand what people are coming from. But I don't necessarily always have to believe that I'm glad like hyphen there. I think that if it warrants it, which sort of this appear. But. I also take it with grant salt. Yeah. That makes sense to me, but watch back, watch fleabag and please let us know at spoilers at slate dot com. If the priest is hot. Thank you listening. Please subscribe to the slate.

"fleabag" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest
"Of like come together at the end with this wedding between Liebeck staff and fleabag Stott mother who I have to say like one of the things I really truly love about this character is that she always says something utterly reasonable. And then, like she always has had like one level tiny remark at the end that liked completely of does everything. Like all of the good will you have given her? Do you think flee backing Clarice dad actually likes her? I wasn't sure where to come down on that because so he's in the attic at the end and fleabag is totally ready to shut shut the whole wedding down and get him out of there. But he actually wants to get married. But did you guys make of that, right? He's physically stuck in the attic. He's not skipping out on the wedding as you would sort of soom from these things in how wedding tropes, go. Let's remarkable. The winning is that nothing goes wrong. Right. And the priest tried to pull out as it were of the wedding, too, because it just got really uncomfortable. But, you know, he's back and he's doing the wedding, and you're right. Yeah. I thought that was interesting because I think we're sort of prime to just expect someone to object and it's funny that the godmother before the wedding in as to this point, who she is wholly reasonable. But also, she also just needles people necessarily she says no more miscarriages to flee back before the ceremony, which is like awful. But at the same time, is it really so crazy to expect fleabag to do something to interrupt her special day? I mean, not really given the history to one of the things that she says, is that, you know, like I know that you care for your father, but I also care for your father. And you know what your father's gonna get older? So do you wanna take care of her father or key want need to take care of your father? And so she, like, really appeals to fleet accents of in the self preservation, I guess, and then we would have lied coming around to her side than like being more okay with the wedding, and then a sickly bag gifts her back the statue that she had stolen from her godmother, which is like the essentially like the headless torso, that she had, like given to Scott Thomas, and then the godmother looks at the statue, and like with other was so weird that you, stole the step to like all other artwork because I actually base it off of your mom. And now until having to have her back at my house, and like with this, like, really like possessive like gross way of dislike being a step mom in, like the very worst. Way possible. But also nice in a weird way because fleabag pick the one that was her mom. Right. I as a much nicer gesture, like her mom, no head. I mean given what we've seen godmother's art. That's not shocking in and stole the her husband to that's weird but also inactive love, you know, I don't know at the end of the episode. You see way back, who was like alone again, as she has, like stolen back the statue. So, I think it was meant to be like terrible line. I also wanna go back to one other piece of her art that I loved, she has to paint a portrait of Clare and fleabag. I forget how that comes up exactly. I really have to paint a right for like for a wedding present or something. So she's going to do that, and fleabag in Clara, like, oh, great. We don't want to spend time together, and then the portrait she chooses. To make is clarify using forward. And fleabag only from behind like so rude, and she just has to sit there for hours modeling it, but she isn't drying her face like that was such a crazy nag. But I, I like how they they played out. Her character in her artwork. Is it rude or is it kind of commentary on their relationship? I feel like the godmother's kinda chain. No, it's interesting because I also noticed that Claire and fleabag often sit next to each other. I don't know if they sit next to each other more than most people, but I just noticed it more, I think because of the portrait like there's a great scene where Claire gets a haircut. And the two of them are in the park and Clair's haircut is absolutely, it is so shocking to see on that character, very chic and short. And it's pretty sheep back on me the first time you see her with it, it's kind of sight, gag, and it's awful, and everyone knows it's awful. And they, they stormed onto the hairdresser to berate him. And he pulls the picture that Claire brought out of the garbage and. Exact cut it's literally what she wanted. It's just that seeing it on her as opposed to on some glamorous model is, is a different experience. Remember like that period of the internet, where people would put like hull that have of watermelons on their cats heads. And so, like all the like if you an asymmetrical version of that, that detect me, what that haircut looked like it is a bad haircut. You are wrong to believe that they she care cut. But I did love the fact that when high fashion, okay? You realize she really needs to make your sister feel better about this. Terrible haircuts to tells her sister. It's French and immediately clear, five, okay? Like I can just tell myself, it's French, and then I can walk with money life. But then also it turns out that, like the Finnish co worker that she's in love with. Also ends up loving the hair, so she just sort of excessive did you? Did you think that at the wedding? She was going to run to the airport after all that to do about how fronting to the airport is ridiculous trope in real life because their security and weights and things like that. I am glad that they didn't show it, but I'm also glad that she went, but yeah, we didn't need to see that we've all seen that before. They spent that she so well deconstructed, why that is not like that's a crazy thing to do because that means that you had to have known about their flight like the exact time and you had to go and find them, and how kinda creepy, and then she does it anyway at seemed a little out of character. But I guess that is the new Claire Clair's crazy. Never now. She's going to react. That's what's fun about her. That's what I mean. Fleabag especially, is constantly surprised by her, which I think, is nice because a different less complex show. I think would have made her more shrew ish and predictable shrew ish. She she has a little shrimp. But I think you're right. That she's Trish and we love her. Yeah. I was gonna add Claire, also says another great thing in that in that seem to fleabag that the only person she'd run through an airport for is you. And I just. That's the only nice thing she ever said to her. But I thought that was so sweet and encapsulates how they really feel about each other even though they torture, each other most of the time going back to the wrong com thing we bags affair. With Christ is a you may or may not be hot now. Same. His government name is hot priest. They compare much and so basically you have like twisted the rom com with those two characters and I really love the way that ended because essentially, they're both leaving the wedding early. They end up on like the same bus stop bench and basically flee that says, I love you which is always supposed to be like, you know, the big declaration of love that makes everything. Okay. And he says pass in before that, though, during the ceremony itself, he gives a big speech about love. And this is just after we've seen them do the sexy push against the wall kiss. While flags having a cigarette which sort of echoes, the, the first time that they meet at the dinner party when they both go out for a smoke. Did you understand the big speech, he gave I, I was trying? To get. So he starts off saying love is terrible. I have it in front of me. Okay. Just a little. I just I didn't know exactly how to interpret it. I, I see where his mind alternately ended up was he figuring out during the speech or what were we supposed to get from that because love is awful? It's awful. It's painful. It's frightening later. He says it makes you creepy it makes you obsessed with your hair, another hair allusion show, the verbs us with here makes you cruel makes you say and do things you never thought you would do. His conclusion basically is I was taught that if we're born with love and life is about choosing the right place to put it people talk about that a lot feeling right when it feels right? It's easy, but I'm not sure that's true. It takes strength to know what's right and love isn't something that week people do. Yeah, this is a speech that kind of your interpretation of it. I think changes once you see that he's not choosing to leave the priesthood to be with fleabag. And in fact, he's choosing faith. Yeah. It's the even though I think the show coming from an atheistic point of view. I have to say I really love that. It's one of those very rare shows that seems to take safe seriously where like you can sort of be jokey about it, and you can also take seriously as like a way of life. And I think that for a show, that's like so much about life has sex Kenedy, stabilize your existence his decision to sort of say, like well like it is what it is like it is eighty stabiliser and not everyone needs set until I'm going to choose to like not. To love in this twisted were Manta comedy. I thought was like, really great through very satisfying -ly unpredictable. I interpreted that a little bit differently. I thought it was less about how sexist stabilizing, and more about how having found fleabag and having felt this deep connection with her reaffirmed his decision to choose religion in a sort of that perverse contradictory way that religion kind of relies on where he found someone and he found himself going against his values. And in the end, he still came back to the same thing that he came back to the first time after what we assume was meaningless sex. So that's how I interpreted that. I don't think it was meaningless with fleabag it wasn't meaningless. All right. But I'm saying the first time around, you know, he's talks about how he was. Implies that had a lot of sex before he became a priest and that his new life is he finds comfort in helping people, but the second time around has a sexual relationship, and it is meaningful, and there is love there. And he still goes back to being a priest. Yeah. I think it's alternately, right. That they, they don't end up together. But I'm still sort of puzzling over what I think it's supposed to mean Ingram. You said that the show's coming from purely atheist perspective. I did not come away with that same point of view because there are key moments where we will be talking to the priest and things fall. To the point where ever, she says something, particularly blasphemous like a cross or something will fall to, to show God being like I heard that including when they're making out in the church. That's what's really stops them. We assume from having sex, right there on the church and the priest is has definitely think believes it's an act of God, based on his reaction. But fleet also seems every time this happens a little bit shaken,.
"fleabag" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest
"But isn't it more his relationship to fleabag that's hot than the character, himself, any hotness mean, something while okay so we probably most people probably know, enders Scott best for playing a Moriarty on the BBC version of Sherlock where he sort of in this, like, homoerotic detente with the Cumberbatch is shrimp in indicates, he I always always fountain, extremely grading in that role because he seems like he knows too much about what's going on. And basically, he really like Ross back here, and I think what I really found hot about him, is that he actually knows how much sleep bad. Wants to bag him. And so he is constantly sort of like flirting with her, even though he knows he thought the post to, and then like pulling back in the flirting with her, and then pulling back part of it is because he's new town 'em. So he sort of needs to reach out to other people in to feel so lonely. Thank am I gonna? Say and in future episodes, the that fleabag had this miscarriage gives him an excuse to sort of reach out to her and comfort her and that progresses their relationship as well. Part of it is that, like he's a pretty like legitimately wants to help this person who definitely seems very broken, and that he had a lot in common with and sell it like part of it is just he's like very strange combination of like the tenderness that you would want from, like a guy from like a legitimate good guy, and then also sort of like cloudy arrogance of like a guy who knows at like this woman like the only two of the world right now is asleep with him an like basically him constantly, acknowledging that to her and saying, like I know you want this, but I don't think so let that push him play. I felt like was really sexy. I think also, though he's struggling on a more fundamental level than just teasing in flirting with her, but he's not as basking the attention. They have a very real connection and. In one of the most crucial scenes is before that they get physical and have any kind of relationship is when he actually sees her asides into the camera, which up until now had just been sort of narration device, but now is framed in a totally new context when he asks her where did you go? And at one point, she looks into the camera, and he sort of screams and looks into the cameras. Like, what are you doing? I think we should talk about that. But I think we should go back to the hotness question. I feel like you had more to say I have more today. I just wanted to talk about the narrative but okay now not important. So I do not think he is hot. I get it, but I, I like his character, but and I like how he's a real person and, you know he has a great smile. He has, like, Mark Ruffalo thing, but. I can't separate it from lake. He like has this huge forehead receding? Hairline like he's a good looking guy, but he didn't become hot to me. And also like important interjection from our producer Daniel Hewitt hot priests. Hut two two. So you're on my team. Okay. So and also, I mean to me. A priestess just inherently not hot. Like they're like, I'm, I'm not Catholic to me that, that's that. It's a little weird. And, like, I, I have trouble getting past that. But I do think my favorite thing about him. I didn't really see the cockiness at all. And now that in GU pointed out, I'm like, oh, maybe but I just like how he understood her. And, and you know, we'll, we'll get back to the narrative way later but they did have a real connection. So, but your thoughts Mersa my thoughts are, there are some scenes that are incredibly hot between them. Everyone talks about the confessional seen in the church when fleabag who's a devout atheist steps into the confessional and the preschools to kneel. And everyone apparently swooned at this hates it. Which is good or like a very kinky element to their really. I hate. And in fact, I was gonna say that the scene, I thought was hot came right before that. When fleabag sort of walks into his priestly quarters. That's not the word. I'm bad Catholic. And he turns around. And she says something like what's going on father, and he says, you know, saying father like it doesn't just turn you on to call me that there's definitely like a very kinky beady SM going on. I preferred their, their scenes together when he understood her, or like hot like they're, they're kiss in the last episode. I thought was great the up against the wall. Yeah. Yeah. I, I think that like kinky Catholic schoolgirl thing, though. You have to be into that in some way, and crucially at she, it's not her. She's not the element in this that makes it. Kinky it's him. And the fact that he can't have sex. It's seventy fascinating dynamic. I don't think it's like a I mean, like I think one of the things I like about their dynamic is that it's she's not like a hinky Catholic schoolgirl. She's a devout to eightieths who finds a lot of like what he does really kind of, like if the where she says in five oh, you just want me told me all your secrets of you can like better control me. And you know what, like that's not a completely off the Mark criticism of have couch works. But then she also says that, that's something that on some level, she secretly wants because it seems easier. I mean, that's what's so amazing about that confessional scene. Is that she gets on her knees and much in the first season? Chanter sister, go to this feminist lecture and the speaker asks, would you trade, I think it was five years of your life for the perfect body, and she and her sister, or the only one who raise their hand? Ends. And they're like, oh, no, we're bad feminists. I mean much the same way her getting on her knees and saying, I want to let go, and I want to be told how to dress and how to act and where to go like to a man, as someone who does not believe, in God, there's like a dual like her role as a woman in her role as a person seeking meeting, kind of meet there, especially because then that's exactly what happens is that he tells her to kneel I I'm just gonna add, do you think there's any way in? Well, obviously, there's some way, but that he's inappropriate or reckless. I mean, I also have trouble seeing him as, as, like the perfect guy because I think one thing that's admirable about him, or that went, you might find cute is he's like so nice, but that he would never have sex or transgress with. Exactly what I love about this character in their dynamic, because flashback is a person who has all of this, like unresolved grief, and she doesn't know how the channel it except through sex. But every time she gets into a sexual relationship because she doesn't sort of, like six through about what the consequences with the two ends up, sort, of, like fucking her life, over even more, and he seems to be like the sun that of alcoholics he is absolutely someone who probably also like em. So I think what we know about this family history is that he has a brother who was a pedophile like a truck driver. And his parents were out the Hollick 'em. So you get the feeling that he probably also had extremely like unstable life. He Samson he to. He says, you know before he was. A priest he had some some years, where I think he intimates that he also had a problem with sacks where he like overdid. It was an addict. What's great about, like, what he let the P he has come to is that he has cited like, I'm going to take on this particular structure for myself and undescoring to sort of like follow these strictures so that I can have some peace in my life, and you definitely get the sense that light, that's where we bag is herself headed toward not like a Catholic whatever. But just sort of like any kind of structure for herself. And in. So you see the thing of like him trying to pull her intellect, more structure, and her trying to pull him back into instability, and basically, at least like by the time that like she seduced him successfully, she has sort of, like pull him into her side of the civilly access. And so, like, when they get together, it's a conquest. For her about, like you also feel incredibly sad for him, which I thought was like a really great element of the story. Because every time like the more he gets entangled with a her, he sort of likes evening back into this life path. He works hard to escape. One thing I thought was interesting about the confessional scene is that also goes to therapist in this season. Her dad gets her of outer to therapy as a present at which is sort of embarrassingly revealed during the dinner party. And she does go out of a sense of allegation. No, she goes because he wanted to exchange the trip for money. Well, she says that, but she also kind of wants to go right? I took it as that sort of being her justification for actually going because she didn't wanna go, but right that is the excuse that she gives the she wants to change it for money which she doesn't bring up until late enough in the session that it's not gonna happen. But it's interesting to me, just the fact that she goes to therapy. And she also goes into a confessional, because the two things seem she's skeptical of both going to the therapist and of religion, but she actually has some unexpected revelations in both scenes. And yet, it's the confessional seen that ultimately, she seemed more have more of a, an emotional investment. And I think that speaks to her link between sex and love and how she's been trying to fill the void with sex, because she does have a sexual democ with the priest that she doesn't have with this therapist to tell by your own admission. You have no friends and is very blunt with her, and it's funny to, to talk about our fourth wall thing when the therapist says to her, you have no friends, she looks at the camera and it's like we are her friend. Right. We're also in a lot of ways like. Her therapist. That's where she talks about her candid thoughts and feelings. Back on that, actually because I feel like even though we are more privy to her thoughts, when she's turning to the cameras, she usually making a face or she's making a joke, and, like we're supposed to, to like, see through, but I think one of the things I like the most about the season is that it really got into, like, how much is her sense of humor. Disliked detachment vice where she can sort of, like make these neat story than like entertaining situations at of the parts of her life that she doesn't like as a way of not dealing with what's at hand and it was like one of the reasons why her relationship with the priest who is able to listen to her acids to the fourth wall is so interesting is that you get the sense that, like he can maybe perceive what she saying because he has a very. Similar job of like also having to ingratiate himself through, like jokes or whatever to his congregation. And so they both have this need to constantly. I don't think the word is like entertained, but sort of, like keep involved like an audience, it's just like in his case it's a real audience. And in her case, she's just kind of, like using it to not really engage with people. Yeah. And we don't have a sense of what it looks like in real life when she goes, or I don't when she goes into those moments where the, the pre says. Oh disappeared for a second. Where did you go that implied to me that to him? It looked a little different. And she wasn't actually, like turning around and talking to the camera. But then when he didn't impression of her she turned around and looked at the camera. Right. I don't know literally were meant to chat. I just wanted an I also wanted to say Theresa, who I know watched crazy ex girlfriend did that remind you at all of when Pala and Rebecca were talking about the musicals in her head and Rebecca zones out. Yeah. I think about the musical at long last poll says, where do you go when you do that? I also thought that same thing another show about a sexually adventurous, troubled woman who often breaks. Fourth wall. Crazy ex run. Yeah. It's interesting. I don't disagree with your interpretation of who we as the audience are. But I think I always thought of us more as like a stand in for blue who we find out how she dies in the first season. And so I guess maybe I projected may have to go back and watch. I guess I interpreted as more of an intimate relationship then sort of humorous coping mechanism. It's I think it's one of those things where there, there is no literal answer. So, you know, I didn't really even picture there being a camera there until spoiler alert when they actually have sex, and she and fleabag pushes a camera away, like was that the first time we saw an actual camera. And so I think there's a lot of like zone to kind. Of imagine what literally, she's seeing and other people are seeing. And we're seeing I love that scene, where she and the priest finally have sex after openly stating, we're gonna have sex, aren't we? And she does pushing hammer away for once. We're not privy to what's happening especially because I mean throughout the show, we've seen her have sex with plenty of men, and she always turns the camera during to make little comments, but this season, especially she has a lawyer because Martin, her brother-in-law is suing her considering suing her..
"fleabag" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist
"It's fifty three minutes past the top of the hour. And now the hit British television sitcom fleabag written, and starring Phoebe Waller bridge is having a scene by scene. Remake in French conquers arnovitz, the film critic is here with me Caryn. Why not just dump the original add subtitles well, everyone's saying that, you know, particularly because it's original which, which means why are you doing remake? Well, it's not unusual for series templates. Netflix bag is now a template to be taken into different cultures because it's not just the not just the language. It's also the situation that locale the venue and the vagaries of every culture, for example, she's not going to be attracted to Obama. She's going to be attracted to Ben wa then what I think is an Emo, I'm gonna get his name. Right. Who is that with socialist Representative? And I think. That there are subtleties within each culture, I suppose, Germany and also all others, where the English culture is not going to fit, for example, when they did the American office. They didn't just I mean, they also had the English office, but the American office spoke more directly to that culture. Is this a growing trend? We saying more and more people remake originals like, oh, always, always the great thing about remaking original is number one. You you've got the structure already, you know where you're taking it. You just need to fill it with really great content for your market. For example, they've made they remade twenty four and they remade twenty four in India, which I think is amazing. And they've also been breaking bad and Columbia civic. Why does that work there? I don't know. But it's it's, it's where I it's such a wonderful setup. And it's so good. It's universal.

And there are gonna be be minor differences. I'm going to be watching the fashion, I frankly think, but also, I think what is considered risque there and risque here and what's funny there in what's funny here isn't necessarily the same thing. So, I think if you happen to be Anglo-French you can watch both of them and laugh boating. I mean, in this particular instance, I feel it was the appeal of the lead actress, and the writing that really reeled in the audience without Phoebe Waller bridge can still be a huge hit. Oh, absolutely. And I think whether they're adapting using some really high powered experienced content providers here.

"fleabag" Discussed on Bald Move TV
"Hey, everybody. Welcome to another bald new television. We are here to cover all of TV endure, Dan this to do. So I'm your Jose, Ron, I'm Jim. And I'm sesame, and we have got a TV podcast. View sesame. And I got the fleabag fleabag bug bitten by the fleabag flea bit the flu bug that us a Netflix bags and we finished a whole series. It's not as a president. Sounds. It's, it's twelve thirty minute episodes twenty minute episodes. But we're going to close that out. Gyms all dead, the me and we all took a stab at the perfection, new horror film evolving, and revolving around two female. Proteges. Cellist. Bestest cellist. But I heard from Jack black you turned that based on the that cello on his side to low you gotta pick. Fuck I fucked it up. I fucked it out. No space in there, there. They got they got some problems. Let's talk about fleabag. I okay. So we all really like season two's premiere and we decided to go back much. We went back and watch the first season we watched the first season, and like I thought like these are going to be like ten to twelve episodes. But there's only six, we were able to finish it really easy and filled in a lot of questions we had. But also, like the kept a lot of the central question is what happened to her business partner, you know, her cafe business partner because she's dead now and that was kind of alluded to in the season two and kind of really don't find out a lot about it and season one until like the very last episode. I don't know. I'm kind of rambling. The thing about this show is that the fourth wall, brakes, are designed to make you feel like you're this woman's like best friend and co conspirator like I've never seen a show kinda used that technique that this effect. Right. And then voice inside your head is a character outside that you're actually addressing. Yeah. And then, so the season makes the dialogue like move really fast which is very quick, paced and season two is all about her falling in love with this a very unavailable. Roman Catholic priest simultaneously reconnecting with her sister, and kind of her sisters dissolving relationship with her pig of a husband. But what they do the success of her business sex success of her business, and what they do with that point of view, contact with us is like, really assed. I don't want to spoil it, but like they got a scene. No, so effective at the finale, which is the end of the series of turns out. That it just stunned me like I like I felt I it simulated like like I feel like a show broke up with me is what happened. That's exactly what happened. And it really is. Because this show has been, like, really funny. It also had some of the most socially awkward scenes where I will literally was like watching with my like I couldn't believe that she's about to do what she's surely about to do and like, oh, shit. Yeah, she's doing it. Oh, it's actually even worse than I thought it was gonna be. I was like, really I almost had to leave the room a couple of times. If you've ever seen have you ever seen young adult, the diabetes, Cody movie, there's one scene in there. That is the hardest thing to watch ever because of Scott, one of those social anxiety things, and it's, it's it rivals anything that I've seen in the young adult movie, which are highly recommend by. Yeah..

"When actually I think it's the opposite more than we talk about it, and the more that men are interested in it as well. Because women talk about all the times shouting into our own each other's vaginas about it the whole time, and you just won't. And it's when it's now it was great because men are listening are interested in in a public way as well. I think I've off track from what your question was. Which will I guess what we could do. Now is talk about how this in terms of the feminists conversation was only that you've been come more and more people want you to be part of that was only exacerbated by killing eve, which comes in because I guess initially of the imagination of Sally Woodward gentle, can you tell people who she is. And why she would have ever thought that she should approach you about doing this. Well, Sally runs sit gentle foams, and she read fleabag when I was in London to Edinburgh, and she'd read it, and she'd got these novellas that she'd read from Luke Jennings, and she was crazy about them, rightfully so. And then sent them to me and said, would you consider this, and they they were considering a bunch of the writers? And she said, what did you think about this? And I was like I mean, yes, I couldn't believe that. I hadn't even made a TV show or anything like that point. And she had said you've written this this vulnerable. Log coming. What do you think about this drama? There's something about someone just having that faith from the off to meet makes you he'll game. Yeah. I'd I'd love to do that. And then to wait for like crashing back to be done, and then jumped on board and had a philosopher with Luke Jennings after fleabag when he came to see it, and we just talked about psychopaths and an obsession, and it was going..

"Is a very different skill set than theater acting, which is what I swim you trained in exclusively at rata. So like, how did you suddenly become a quip to handle acting for? Camera. It is really different thing. Do find it different thing less and less so but at the time I felt like being in front of a camera. You what was that you have to be very very still, and you have to you have to convey, everything with your eyes, but don't move your eyes, and it has to be a physical performance, but don't move. And if you picked up you have to pick it up the same way every single I was sort of like a potato for ages on screen like I can't move. Otherwise, I'm might be a potato. But then as much freer on on stage, a member an ethical saying play with little cool. And he said, and I say this conversation with him. I was like I get the moment. I walk onstage. I got this buzz. I get the sense of power, and and fun and the power of stories heading east come on. We're gonna tell you a story and it's going to Stories do. because there's an absence of that screen, and he said, you just need to give that camera to give that camera the same weight as you give the audience and to see them as your audience me a little while. But she really helped the end when you walk on a set, and you feel the camera that that sense of responsibility to tell a story should come alive. Again, it didn't into dine. And I'd be so frightened lady. I was really moved it. I was also I would think there's something about control because what you do on stage. Nobody can change. But it's out of your hand. What takes us or what your performance screen can be constructively somebody else, right? Yeah. And you don't really understand what that process is only writing these other shows and being part of the post production anything like, oh, that's why they do that. That's why they get that coverage. That's why that's what a wide shots fall. Now understand that so much more. It's giving me way more confidence on a set. But I think because I'm quite self-aware person. If I'm going to have actors. Who compete show everything off? And I wish I could do that when they're onset just real. And that is and it's the job of the cabinet director, two cats wherever you will doing, but you've just got to be really live as I'm always sort of kind of on high from the camera until until now who work now, I get it. We'll we'll show with fleabag where you're now again acting for camera, but a. Much more screen time than you would have ever had in the iron lady or even crashing where it's split with so many other people did you feel confident then to go and on top of that add some kind of bold things like breaking the fourth wall. That's I just wonder how some of those decisions were made. How you how confident you felt doing it with the first season. I felt confident with a few aspects of it.
