A wing and a prayer. The Flight Attendant (2020) - Series - Review

Flight attendant Cassandra Bowden wakes in her hotel room in Bangkok,hungover from the night before and 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 Bangkok. Still unable to piece the night together, she begins to wonder if she could be the killer.

In her first big role since "Big Bang Theory" Kaley Cuoco plays an alcoholic flight attendant that gets mixed up in an international murder mystery. Kaley does a great job fumbling her way through this series. After meeting a wonderful passenger on a flight to Bangkok and spending an evening wining and dining and drinking way too much, she wakes up next to her new found mystery man, with only one thing wrong. He is dead. What can she do, where can she go? As the authorities from all over start to close in around her, she takes matters into her own neurotic and hungover hands to figure out the mystery. I am three episodes in, but loving it so far. She has a great internal monologue that helps fill in the pieces for her and the audience. Well written and acted. Interested to see where this one goes. Well worth a watch if you are looking for something new.

Ranking 7.5/10
