If you've been looking for a lively, stylish, and thrilling series to pass the time with this winter, then HBO Max has an early holiday present for you. The Flight Attendant, the streamer's latest original series starring and co-produced by The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, is premiering on November 26. Early reviews have been coming in, and the consensus so far is that the series is a fun and titillating romp that's been upgraded to first class.
Cuoco plays Cassie, a flight attendant whose two big loves in life are drinking and making bad decisions. During a flight to Bangkok, she meets a handsome stranger, and it's not long before they take their flirtation from the airplane lavatory to dinner and drinks, and then his hotel. It's a fun night, but Cassie wakes up to something worse than any hangover she's ever experienced. Her date has been brutally murdered at some point during the night, and his bloody corpse is still in bed with her. Cassie doesn't believe she could be involved, but as the FBI begins to investigate the case, her hazy memory of the night before makes it more and more difficult to prove that she wasn't.
The series is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian. According to the first reviews, the show gives viewers an engaging mystery to get lost in.
Cobb is far from alone in her praise for the show; the first reviews for The Flight Attendant have been largely positive and commended the show's style, tone, and self-awareness. For Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter, one of the series' greatest attributes is that it plays to its strengths.
Digital Spy's David Opie also noted the series' commitment to its particular style.
The show's ability to mix nervy thrills, high-wire psychological drama, and clever humor was also lauded.
Despite the largely positive reviews, not everyone was completely won over.
The Flight Attendant is Cuoco's first big live-action role since the end of The Big Bang Theory, and according to most of the early reviews, she picked a perfect project to highlight her talents.
Even though Cuoco is the star of this particular show, she's also surrounded by a stellar supporting cast, according to critics. Writing for Comicbook.com, Jenna Anderson called co-star Rosie Perez, who plays one of Cassie's co-workers, quote, "a welcome addition to basically every scene she's in."
Perez received strong plaudits for her sharp supporting turn.
Another frequently praised co-star was Girls' Zoisa Mamet, who plays Cassie's lawyer best friend. Cobb said that Mamet, quote, "consistently adds fun back into the series' most stressful moments."
Based on the early reviews, it appears that The Flight Attendant is flying high so far.
