A flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened. When questioned by FBI agents and still unable to piece the night together, she begins to wonder if she could be the killer.
A fast-moving mystery anchored by Kaley Cuoco's versatile lead performance, The Flight Attendant is the TV equivalent of a beach read, pure and simple... It has a confidence of identity that I appreciated.
It sells the audience on Cassie's psychological state and leaves enough mystery to keep us coming back for more. As HBO Max's first original release, this is absolutely necessary and a strong lead coming out of the gate.
Steve Yockey (Supernatural) developed the series for television and he's done a smart job of selecting what the viewer is shown in each episode. The episodes are also structured such that they leave the viewer wanting more as the mystery deepens.
Maybe that's the most brilliant twist in Cuoco's performance as Cassie: She's playing a character who isn't put together or impressive, but rather just this side of annoying-and somehow you end up rooting for her anyway.
It's a blackly hilarious comedy, a grim character study, a slow unraveling of a troubling past, a dazzling coming-out party for comedienne Kaley Cuoco as a lead actress and, yeah, a vexatiously fascinating murder mystery.
The Flight Attendant feels like the television equivalent of overhearing somebody else's personal drama at a crowded restaurant -- it's a little erratic and not expertly told, but you'll be left desperately wanting to hear more.
