Flaked: Season 1 Reviews

July 14, 2016
Flaked almost succeeds in tricking you into thinking it's a love story, but it's not. It's really a story about male friendship - insecure, immature and loyal.

The end result isn't entirely insufferable - but it's pretty close to it.

Man-child's mature world is more tragedy than comedy.

The relationship is promising, you might want to keep it streaming for a few episodes.

...Flaked is not nearly as deep or profound as it desperately wants to be, but there's just enough of a decent blend in humor and drama to make it a satisfactory diversion.

It's light and prone to wandering, but the symmetry between the show's characters and its setting gives this serio-comedy a necessary layer that distinguishes it enough to make watching an enjoyable, but not necessarily substantial experience.

There's a vulnerability to Arnett's performance that's subtly devastating.

It is not as original, lacerating, or self-aware as Louie and Girls, the progenitors of this trend, or as good as Transparent, the perfector of it, but it contains a deep and precise character sketch.

Flaked is to be commended for really capturing its setting, shooting very clearly on location and focusing on the issues facing this community right now.

If you're willing to go along with the show's carefully conceived aimlessness, it has the pull of a book of inter-connected short stories.

A good portrait of a fallen man and the place he has fallen into. Promising - but also frustrating.
