The Flight Attendant: In Case of Emergency
November 28, 2020 1:11 PM - Season 1, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Following a one-night stand with a man named Alex Sokolov, flight attendant Cassandra Bowden (Kaley Cuoco) awakes to find him dead in the bed next to her, with no memory of the night before. She cleans up the room and tries to get back to the United States, but is haunted by hallucinations of the dead man, even as she tries to pretend that everything is alright.

An HBO Max limited series.

This sounded interesting. It approached being annoying but never did.

I'm liking the hint that she was dosed, and I'm holding out that she's a patsy.

Covering up a capital crime is never a good look.

This is great! No spoilers, but three episodes in and it's really good so far.

Michiel Huisman plays Alex in this. He was also cast as one of the Daario Naharis's. The not hot one.

Is he considered physically attractive, or not-offensive and his social status elevates his characters' hotness?

(Although Naharis was supposed to be shit hot first, standing and capability second.)

I've only seen this first episode, because that's all that was available as a free preview and I'm almost tempted to sub to whatever service I'd need to watch the rest. I thought Kaley Cuoco was surprisingly great and Rosie Perez as a co-worker who is both friend and supervisor is pretty terrific at evoking that Mom-but-sister vibe.

Is he considered physically attractive,
I'm on the wrong side to judge. But he does have a very 'glossy fashion magazine Italian designer luxury fragrance platinum wristwatch advertisement' type look?

For our lead however, I think this is one of those times where your agent pulls you around the corner after watching dailies and says
"Whoever it is that's lighting you on this? Marry them."
The whole hair & makeup & wardrobe crew are making her look good.

Yeah, I'm with bartleby here, so I'm surprised that my wife preferred the himbo Daario. Maybe it's he's less that Huisman portrays straight up model handsomeness and more that he's the right side of rich and powerful? It's a fine line to walk...

Huisman is pretty but he’s got a weak chin.
