I saw an article recently that opined that, following the success of Fleabag, we’re going to start to see a slew of television shows and movies that break the fourth wall. As a fan of shows and books that break the fourth wall, I think that would be downright spiffy. But I’m dubious. Here’s the thing: as much as I love Fleabag (and I really, really do), there already exists a lot of shows that break the fourth wall. So are they really going to be kicking it up that much more?
