“In the same month that Avengers: Endgame arguably stuck the landing and Game of Thrones … will end, one way or another, Amazon airs the second and final season of Fleabag, a master class in character, emotion, and how to end a story with enviable magnificence.

We catch up with our unnamed heroine Fleabag (writer/creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge) over a year after the events of Season 1. In the firecracker of a season premiere, she breaks the acrimonious silence with her sister (Sian Clifford) to focus on their father’s (Bill Paterson) wedding.

Enter the Priest.

The phenomenally cast Andrew Scott catches Fleabag’s eye from the get-go. At first he’s hot, then he’s “cool and swear-y,” and then she’s popping around the church to bond with him over a canned G&T, pretending she isn’t obsessed with his neck and that he’s not visibly flustered to see her during a sermon……………………………………………………………….”

That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?

‘Claws’ is the juiciest summer drama you aren’t watching

Published

on

“Claws is one of three excellent shows returning in the next week, in which the leading women are on a quest to empower themselves. Unlike HBO’s award-winning Big Little Lies or FX’s acclaimed Pose, however, this one will air relatively inconspicuously.

It’s a shame, because TNT’s boisterous crime drama retains the kooky vibe it’s hoisted itself on for the past two years.

Everything about Claws is unapologetically loud, from the storylines to the costumes to the dialogue to, obviously, the on-brand nails. It doesn’t hold back from its unconventional premise: Five manicurists run a salon in the trashy city of Palmetto, Florida, that’s actually a front to launder money for the local drug lord………………….”
