Well written story, Cuoco can act.

Review of The Flight Attendant
by Bosporan

Overall Rating

The writing is fabulous, employing a difficult blend of tension and dark comedy to deliver a believable scenario and some great characters. All of this naturally without a hint of gratuitous exposition although the second half of season one is not as good as the first. There is a lot of imagery woven through the show pushing the story along and revealing Cassie’s (Kaley Cuoco) inner world. The most persistent metaphor is the rabbit, but there are a lot of tunnels and recursive reflections in addition to the corpse of Alex (Michiel Huisman) brainstorming with Cassie throughout.

The Flight Attendant is a vehicle to give Kaley Cuoco a chance to shed the shadow of TBBT and shine in her own right. Sure, she is a fun-time slightly dipsy blonde, but that is where the similarity ends. She demonstrates that she is not typecast but has range with great dialogue delivery tone and timing and use of expression. The character starts as a selfish alcoholic and, though she is no angel at the end, she has something of a redemption arc.

There are other good performances from Zosia Mamet playing Cassie’s best friend Ani and Rosie Perez who plays Megan who has her own mystery going on.

There are some problems (over use of split-screen, some unrealistically serendipitous plot points and the final floating reveal of Shane) but this is a good watch - bring on season 2.
