Flack: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Audiences looking for an arsenic cookie of a series may cut Flack some slack, but its cynical take on publicity is exacerbated by hyperbolically unpleasant, underdeveloped characters.

    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

    It’s good – I’d recommend it.

Critic Reviews for Flack Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

In its best moments, Flack is a bleak workplace comedy studded with talent.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

There's plenty of fun to be had in this stuff, even if some of it borders on cliche.

Mar 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Flack has a devilish crackle to it that makes it highly watchable.

Feb 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The high-functioning screw-up is a familiar trope, yet Flack exploded on to the screen with such confidence and brio that resistance proved useless.

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Not terribly fresh, then, but still huge fun. Flack gets no flak from me.

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The six episodes of this first season skillfully narrate the nonsense of the new rich people. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

A kind of modern day Absolutely Fabulous crossed with Mad Men and Episodes, Flack's brand of cutting snark laced with modern-day maladies won't be for everyone but it is definitely not without its charms.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Uneven British PR drama full of adult behaviors.

Mar 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A terrific and bittersweet comedy from Oliver Lansley, it's in turns woefully tender and snort-funny. You'll be blowing tea down your nose.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a rotten business, with rotten people, but Flack is entertaining nonetheless. It shines a light on the grotesque nature of fame, and although it humanizes some of the players, and makes you laugh, it doesn't let you forget that they are terrible.

Feb 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Flack wasn't the week's heaviest drama, but it felt like the start of a dysfunctional friendship.

Feb 25, 2019 | Full Review…

It's technically about the hidden push and pull between truth and entertainment and the dark arts of perception management, except one seemingly using a script that's been written entirely in emoji.

Audience Reviews for Flack: Season 1

    Nice Ray Donovan reboot but with female leads. Are we supposed to get shitty show every season, just to please minorities? I'm okay with Anna Paquin, but please the rest of the cast is kinda trash as hell
  • Jun 10, 2020
    Interesting and dark series with lots of dysfunctional characters. Pity it was only 6 episodes!
  • Jun 03, 2020
    Great cast interesting to see what its like behind the scenes in the PR world good binge watching
  • May 12, 2020
    Between the thoroughly unlikable Caroline and the indeterminate nature of Robyn there is the complex Eve who is both hateful and lovable at the same time. Rebecca Benson's Melody is by far the most sympathetic character in this tawdry but still enjoyable comedic drama.

    Got halfway through the first episode, stoped, and bought the whole first season. Waiting on season two!
  • Dec 14, 2019
    I love the characters, flaws and all. The stories are interesting, funny and exciting.
  • Nov 02, 2019
    refreshing, clever and touching.
  • Mar 31, 2019
    Well done! Nice to see something different come acrossoss the airways for a change... Well written, well-acted oh, and I can't wait for the next season. Unfortunately, nobody that I know even knows what pop channel is, so I expect the ratings to be exceptionally low. Maybe Netflix or a better network will pick it up if they don't renew it on Pop

    Smartly written, deeply layered. At times randy. At times brilliant monologues. Ray Donovan with silk gloves and wit rather than muscle.
  • Mar 02, 2019
    A really sharp, funny show. Sort of Secret Diary of a Call Girl meets Ab Fab. Anna Paquin and Lydia Wilson would make a hilarious double-act!
