    I’m slowly catching up on season 2, I had already loved the first season but so far the second season is even more amazing. Betty Gilpin is once again the stand out among a cast of great performers, she makes it look so easy I don’t know how she does it. Between “Mother of All Matches” and “Work the Leg” she already has two amazing submissions for next year. Hopefully the name Anna Chlumsky bumps won’t be hers.

    So I finished the season and it was really great overall. I do have one complaint though, the creepy will they won’t they vibe between Ruth and Sam is disgusting. He is in a power position and decades older than her, a father-daughter-like relationship should be the way to go.

    I’m up through episode 7 and in awe of the cast this season. Loved season one, but like many shows it still seemed to be finding its moments and tone then. The train is locked on the tracks now and the writing and cast are in lockstep.

    Their nod to #metoo with an ‘80s spin was fascinating, with the complexity of Debbie acknowledging Ruth’s difficult situation tied in with the affair was genius, and Debbie’s line “The one time you decide to keep your legs closed, we all get fucked” was perfection.

    Ep 7 was great, with the hospital confrontation a pivotal moment. It filled in a lot of Debbie and Ruth’s background and added depth with the revelation that Debbie used Ruth’s failures to build up her own small successes.

    Gilpin should win next year for “Mother of All Matches”. Mullally should win this year.

    Just watched the first three episodes. What a strong and amazing beginning. Glows is so stylish, I love all the design of the scenes, costumes, directing and everything.

    Ruth is like a realistic Kimmy Schmidt. I love her so much and Alison Brie is better than ever.

    I don’t know if my level of affection over some characters have gone up, but boy, did I binged this season 2 or what? The problem that I had with the first season it’s that I basically didn’t care for anyone, besides Debbie. Everything kinda felt out of place. With a Season 2 focusing more on Sylvia, Debbie and Ruth, everybody had a chance to shine, especially the supporting players.

    Betty Gilpin is just a fantastic and phenomenal actress and should be up for every single award nest cycle. I also think Brie and Maron – who I felt were utterly snubbed for season 1 – were also breathtaking good and MUST get their first Emmy nominations.

    I’m one episode left, but the obvious stand outs were Mother of All Matches (beautifully directed by John Cameron Mitchell and Mark A. Burley) and Nothing Shattered – which may have been the show’s best episode -. That confront scene between Gilpin and Brie, whoa, Emmys all around people!

    FYC: Fleabag Season 2 in ALL categories!

    Betty Gilpin is going to pull a Thandie Newton next year. Newton, the most critically acclaimed performer from her show, a co-lead frauding into supporting, was pushed aside by a sweep from a new show in a year where a long-reigning HBO show was in hiatus. Sound familiar? Newton came back for a win this year, where the wins were much more equally spread out. Once Veep comes back, it’ll take home series and lead actress (and maybe supporting actor), and the rest of the awards will be more widely distributed between different shows (like the drama race this year). Put your money on Gilpin, because she is in the exact same position as Newton, only boosted by the fact that GLOW’s second season was much more acclaimed than that of Westworld.
