You gotta love a show that makes men cry this much. Male crying is the show's comic relief, but the heartless core of the series is a woman nicknamed Fleabag, played with perfect comedic flair by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also created the show. Fleabag's nickname goes unexplained, but if you want to know who she is, look no further than this apt self-description: "I'm a greedy, perverted, selfish, apathetic, cynical, depraved, morally bankrupt woman who can’t even call herself a feminist." Fleabag sure is a messy bitch, but her comi-tragic chaos is less isolating than, say, Lena Dunham's in Girls, or even Aya Cash's in You're the Worst. While all three shows feature young, sexually liberated female leads trying to figure out their lives, Fleabag feels immediately different. It may be the uniquely British flavor of humor—dry and direct—or the way this selfish bitch holds your hand through the series, regardless of how much of a trainwreck it is. As she picks up one guy after another, gets in tiffs with family members, and half-assedly runs her guinea pig-themed bakery in London, Fleabag saves the biggest laughs just for us by looking directly into the camera, as one would with a best friend, and delivering killer one-liners and crass jokes. —Kristen Yoonsoo Kim
