It's funny, it's dark, it's frustrating - and it's just what we need to escape some the real-life drama going on right now.

Occasionally entertaining but largely predictable, the slickly-directed series manages to have some interesting moments thanks to its talented cast.

The Flight Attendant's glimpses into Cassie's deeper complexities are largely overshadowed by her frantic, increasingly silly efforts to find the mystery woman she met in Bangkok (Michelle Gomez) and piece together the events leading up to Alex's death.

Vanity Fair

As amusingly improbable and slick as the show is, The Flight Attendant digs deep when necessary. That comes through especially in how the story depicts Cassie’s relationship to drinking. ... It makes for a strong counterpoint to the somewhat ridiculous world of crime that she’s wandered into; the plot points don’t have to be believable if the character feels like a real person.

With slick directing from Susanna Fogel, a jazzy score from Blake Neely, and sporadic flashes to Cassie’s terrified subconscious, the show quickly becomes a surreal noir with a solid screwball performance at its center.

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. Only what it accomplishes is actually not so simple...

If you're coming to The Flight Attendant to see the further adventures of Penny, you aren't going to get it. Instead, you'll find an energetic, dark comedy that doubles as a murder thriller. And through four episodes, it works.
