The professional challenges that Robyn faces are often plausible, and far more compelling than their resolutions, which are mostly stupid. Flack has little to say about celebrity culture with its stories of contrived sex tapes, hushed-up face-lifts, sham marriages, and bogus redemption narratives.

Flack is often too blunt to be as interesting as it palpably wants to be, burying any shred of nuance by underlining its themes in red marker to make sure you can’t miss them.

Flack can't explain what these publicists do or why they do it. The better material in Flack is based on character interactions and the cast.

Not terribly fresh, then, but still huge fun.

Los Angeles Times

Barring a few passages where a thematic point is too explicitly made, Lansley writes believable dialogue; his scenes unfold discursively, taking interesting, meandering paths even to expected ends.

[Pop's] most polished offering to date, serving as a reminder that in this age of international TV production, a binge-worthy show can, er, pop up anywhere.
