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.

Critic Reviews for Flack Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

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

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

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.

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.

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…

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

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.

    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.

    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!

    I came across #Flack on the ���W��� channel on Sky, I watched episode 1 & was pretty much hooked, episodes 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 followed in swift succession. I pretty much like all the main cast, Anna Paquin as Robyn & Sophie Okonedo as her boss is brilliant! Yes, are some of the characters a little shallow & the story a little lacking, yes again, but it���s well acted & pretty damn funny. Despite some of the other reviews, I recommend it, give it a try.

    Binge-worthy. Great writing and talent.
