In HBO MAX’s The Flight Attendant, Kaley Cuoco takes off.
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco makes a murder scene, funny. Nominated for an Emmy, it was nominated in the comedy category. Because alcoholism, murder, corruption and child abuse are all hysterical.
A seemingly ditsy but attractive flight attendant named Cassie Bowden lives her travel-job life out of a suitcase, and a bottle. When her boyfriend in every port life catches up with her, she finds her hungover self waking up to a dead friend with benefits. Only problem, she doesn’t remember a thing. Hysterical huh?
Somehow, Cuoco’s performance as flawed flight attendant Cassie Bowden, blends her physical comedic abilities with real life challenges. Like a turbulent flight, it’s a back and forth flashback filled trip from present to past, and back. The present time, murder scene moments seems less harsh than Cassie’s abused flashback childhood. You forgive the insensitively of the comedy, infused into the plot, because you feel sympathetic to the major character’s problems.
You also begin to root for Cassie’s together but mysterious lawyer-best friend, Annie, played brilliantly by actress Zosia Mamet. Like an out of control flight, brilliant Annie’s well intended plan to help Cassie begins to unravel, getting sucked into Cassie’s tornadic vortex of chaos.
I love how the speed of how each episode of The Flight Attendant, moves. Each episode moves the story with satisfying speed with edge of the seat payoff after payoff. It reminds me of 24. We haven’t seen one filler episode yet.
If there is one negative to report is this. HBO MAX sucks. It’s a clunky, slow app that get’s stuck in refresh mode more than AOL. But it’s worth it. While the app stalls, in The Flight Attendant Kayley Cuoco takes off.
