HBO Max’s “The Flight Attendant” is a fun show.

Seeing as how I just cruised through “The Undoing,” I needed a new show to watch, and I made the decision to fire up Kaley Cuoco’s new miniseries. (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters)

The plot is pretty straightforward. Cuoco plays a flight attendant who wakes up next to a murdered man after a night of partying.

Naturally, a massive mystery is kicked off as Cuoco tries to figure out what the hell happened.

Is “The Flight Attendant” a great series? Through one episode, I’d have to say no. It’s not great, but it’s interesting.

Cuoco does a nice job in the main role, and it does keep the audience guessing.

However, it’s shot in a very strange way. There are all these weird scenes where the murdered man is talking to her, and they just give off a weird vibe.

It’s still not enough to turn me off from “The Flight Attendant.” After one episode, there’s no doubt I’m going to keep watching.

After all, you’ll never hear me complain about new viewing options.

Hopefully, I don’t regret this decision. I’m optimistic I’m going to like “The Flight Attendant” down the stretch. Only time will tell!
