On Derry Girls & Fleabag: Two Perfect Shows

With the recent release of season 2 of both Derry Girls and Fleabag, I just wanted to take a moment to highlight these two whip-smart, hysterical, completely wonderful series, created and written by two tremendously talented women (Lisa McGee and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the latter of whom also created and wrote another perfect series, Crashing, and yet another series, Killing Eve, about which there are many things I like), both of whom I hope to see more and more and more from in the future, as the new seasons of their respective shows are far and away the best things I’ve watched on television this year, both full to the brim with wit and joy and, when needed, pathos–all of which the world is in desperate need of more these days.
