1. FLEABAG S2
(Amazon Prime Video)
In Fleabag's first season, creator/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge's communication with the audience was a hilarious entry point into one woman's self-destructive tendencies. In this extraordinary second season – somehow even better than the first, and perhaps one of the greatest seasons of TV ever – Waller-Bridge pulls that fourth-wall-breaking style in a riveting new direction, using it to analyse themes of loneliness, faith and dependency. Though still brilliantly comedic, Fleabag's second season plumbed some harrowing emotional depths, lead by powerful performances from Waller-Bridge, Sian Clifford as Claire, and Andrew Scott as the Hot Priest.
