Flight Attendant Media: Free WiFi!

Recommended Posts


Kaley Cuoco was a guest on Dax Sheperds Armchair Expert podcast. I hadn’t heard of the show so looked up the trailer which actually looks pretty good with a great cast. I haven’t read the book so no idea how it will go.

So is all the material in the book/books been covered so far?

Spoiler

Not all of it. The book has Cassie already working as a CIA agent at the end (still under the cover of a flight attendant but with a new identity and in a new city). In the book, there's also a surprise twist at the very end related to Cassie's family life that the show hasn't alluded to at all, so I don't think the show will use it.

Yeah for Kaley, but they put this in the comedy category?  I mean, yeah, it had some funny moments, but I wouldn't call this a comedy. Not even a dark comedy.  More of action/thriller with a good dose of snark.

Not a comedy and as Chaifan said, not even really dark comedy. Congrats to her anyway.

I still think it's odd that this show is getting nominated under the comedy section. I think of it more as a drama than a comedy.

Comedy can be an easier category to win. The drama category is pretty competitive.

True.
But what or who determines whether it’s a drama or a comedy?  
Last year (in the Before Times—it might have been 2 years ago) Barry was in the Comedy category, and, IIRC, part of the rationale was that the episodes were well under an hour.  
And, of course, as with The Flight Attendant, the lead was known for comedy. 
 

Regardless, I believe the show is award-worthy.

They submit themselves for the category. And the fact that they’ve marketed this show as a “dark comedy” from the beginning leads me to believe this is what they always were going for.

Was reading a Variety article about when she got the Golden Globe nomination.

It mentioned that she's married to a Karl Cook.

Cuoco in Italian means cook (the noun, not the verb).

Kaley Cuoco Cook, ladies and gentlemen!

Or, translated/Anglicized: Kaley Cook Cook. 
Oooh! Even better, IMO:  Kaley Cuoco Cuoco. 
But, obviously best, in that smart lady’s opinion: Cool. Don’t have to change the name.

Even being nominated for a Golden Globe for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy" is a big deal.
Although I've heard the Comedy category is less competitive than Drama, and this show is more Drama than Comedy IMO, the Golden Globe Actress in Comedy category has some very stiff competition. Since the show is renewed, it would be a real long shot if she won next year, but it would be awesome too. 
I don't know if she could enter in the Drama category for the same show next year, but that might be a step up too, and, IMO, appropriate.

‘The Flight Attendant’ & ‘Chad’ Heading To California For Second Seasons Thanks To Tax Credits

The Flight Attendant will be filming it's second season in California, relocating from New York. The Flight Attendant received over $11 million in incentives from the California Film Commission and is set to return to HBO in the spring of 2022.

That's really handy, because

at the end of the book, the CIA relocates Cassie to LA and gives her a new identity so she can spy for them.

That is unfortunate, because I like the cast they have assembled, it is improbable that they would all just end up in California.

‘The Flight Attendant’: Natalie Chaidez Boards HBO Max’s Kaley Cuoco Drama As Co-Showrunner, Meredith Lavender & Marcie Ulin Exit

Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin, who were co-showrunners of season one, will depart.

Natalie Chaidez will exec produce alongside showrunner Steve Yockey, Kaley Cuoco, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. 

I think this has more to do with the show moving from New York to Los Angeles, than creative differences.

It’s odd, Perry Mason just got rid of its season 1 showrunners too.

so two new shows have good ratings and is well received critically.  AT&T replaces the people who ran the shows, including the creator of the PM reboot.

Hmmm new showrunners and a new location. I hope this doesn’t impact the show in a bad way.
