'For the LOVE of MY SHOW!' -- Part 1: Why Amazon's 'Sneaky Pete' and 'Fleabag' Are Worth Binging

Summer is nearly upon us and the longer days mean more hours to binge watch your favorite shows.

TV fans Mark DeCarlo, Shannon Bobo, Ramsey Badawi, Jimmy Palumbo and Kate Flannery gathered to talk about two of their favorites: Amazon’s “Sneaky Pete” and “Fleabag.”

Sneaky Pete” stars Giovanni Ribisi and four-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston. Cranston created the crime drama with David Shore and executive produces the show.

Ribisi plays a released convict who adopts the identity of his cellmate, Pete Murphy, in order to avoid his past life (hence the title). It turns out that his character isn’t the only one with secrets.

On the other end of the spectrum is “Fleabag,” a British comedy written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She plays the irreverent Fleabag, a young woman finding herself and love (a la “Ally McBeal” and “Sex and the City”).

See why our hilarious TV buffs says “Sneaky Pete” and “Fleabag” are worth adding to your binge list!
