Topic: The Flight Attendant

https://i.postimg.cc/HWKNPggX/the-flight-attendant.jpg


Flight attendant Cassandra Bowden wakes in her hotel room hungover from the night before in Dubai with a dead body lying next to her. Afraid to call the police, she continues her morning as if nothing happened, joining the other flight attendants and pilots traveling to the airport. In New York, she is met by FBI agents who question her about her recent layover in Dubai. Still unable to piece the night together, she begins to wonder if she could be the killer.

Just awesome, has a lot of people you'll recognise. A very dark comedy/mystery.

Re: The Flight Attendant

I watched the first episode and thought "meh" and haven't bothered since. Has it got any better I found it stereotypical and a retelling of similar scenarios/series in the past and nothing new?

I haven't seen a story like this told with comedy before. They've always just been your basic murder mystery OMG WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT story. This is told with humour.

My definition and appreciation of comedy must be different to yours I did not consider the first episode comedic in any way.

It's black humour, this isn't for everyone. Some people like canned laughter for example and think those shows are funny.

Re: The Flight Attendant

I think this show is entertaining and quite good, but i really do not find much comedy in it except for some random absurd line or moment. I find it rather tragic and depressing, the main character has many serious mental health issues she is dealing with. I actually find it rather gripping how they portray her and her issues, like a serious drama would. Other characters also has issues. I would call this mystery-drama.

Spoiler

I'm still watching, but I am starting to get annoyed by the "talking to a dead guy" stuff... it's too much, and ruins the show more and more...

It's physical/cringe humour. It's supposed to feel awkward.

On top of that the subject is very dark in many directions, so it doesn't feel funny so much as it feels tragic. But the comedy is there.

Re: The Flight Attendant

Who cares if it's funny, it's a soft porn with Kaley Cuoco, what else do you need? big_smile

Re: The Flight Attendant

Well... The show is definitely campy as hell and is getting more and more so. By episode 7 I was laughing every few minutes. Michelle Gomez is a legend big_smile

Yeah she's one of my favourites as well. Also love Kaley Cuoco.

Re: The Flight Attendant

I honestly don't think Michelle Gomez has been in anything genuinely bad. This show, though Im not sure how it could, deserves to carry on purely for her character. Spin off?

Re: The Flight Attendant

Since I'm unbiased regarding that Michelle Gomez (needed to look up which one is she), can burst the bubble that she and her character was nothing special here, equally mediocre as the rest, just without soft porn elements big_smile

Re: The Flight Attendant

Too soon? big_smile

Actually this show felt similar as that i-Land or what was the name. Actors could do way better, but something went wrong in writing and directing department. Like, for example, that funny butterfly knife Gomez not so convincingly was wielding big_smile And irrelevant storyline detours all over the place -

Spoiler

some random suicidal criminals in jail, government secrets selling housewives and covert CIA agents

OMG no way is it lame like the i-Land. You are definitely missing something, maybe subtleties or plot in general?

No no.. no the i-Land was much better and entertaining imo.

But we are drawing circles here, as tastes are obviously different.

I'm still watching The Flight Attendant but it is getting more and more annoying and down from the pilot which was alright.

Re: The Flight Attendant

I think you guys are taking this show as serious material, when it's a comedy (a dark and chaotic comedy).

And the I-Land was truly awful, you can bet we have different tastes if that's your metric. Mine's like up there with all the good stuff ^ and yours is like down over there in that forgettable hole v

Oh it seems you are in a bit of a mood or better said, it seems you take it a bit personal if someone has a different opinion/taste than you do.

Imo the Flight Attendant is targeted more towards women and I-Land more towards guys, but doesn't mean either can't be enjoyed or also disliked by the other aswell.

But anyway The Flight Attendant has some nice ideas which get old pretty quickly.
