Flaked: Season 1 Reviews

  • Jul 09, 2020

    Interesting concept and characters - extremely poor writing. Watch season 1 and then forget it. The writers just phoned it in after season 1.

    I don't know why the critics' rating for this show is so low. Maybe it doesn't contain enough cheap cliffhangers? Maybe there aren't enough explosions? Maybe the characters don't slip on enough banana peels? Either way, it's one of the most underrated shows in my lifetime. So well put together, with a funny and poignant script. It'll be criminal if they don't do a final season.

    This show is a very apt depiction of the struggles one has with sobriety as an alcoholic. Down to the hiding of drinking, the facade you put on day-to-day the lies you not only tell yourself but those closest to you and the vicious cycle one gets caught in with both the drinking and the lying. However, the entire premise of the story is totally ludicrous, how did this girl manage to track down the man who killed her brother, how did she manage to penetrate his life with such ease? The very Hollywoodesque nature of the guys in their forties sleeping with/dating girls in their thirties is kind of gross and weird.

    A very true portrayal of the difficulties in overcoming your own negative behaviour. The excuses, denial, growth, falls, denial, denial, denial, denial... you go on like that forever or may be somehow get yourself together again and try one more time to look at your life and try to get out of your patterns. Very true story unless you are an immature, impatient 20 year old who has never done anything wrong and has, so far, no regrets in life.

    Oddly ingrossing and yet i dont know why, loveable loser and his sad friends who otherwise wouldnt capture anyones attention but with a splash LA sun to glam it up. This show is charming and funny yet serious in places where its relatable to the 30s to 40 year old guys that stumble often

    The premise of the show sounds interesting but it falls short in the last few episodes when something of actual value in terms of the plot happens. While the consensus ”dull and pointless” doesn’t especially fit the last few episodes of the show, it does for the ones before those. You could come into the show halfway in and not really miss much. The season had its moments in terms of comedy, which was refreshing. The acting is good and most of the characters were enjoyable. Going for 8 episodes and 30 minutes per episode was definitely what saved the season since there were fewer filler episodes.

    This series is scarily real in recovery communities & should be better received than reflected on this site. It's well written and acted. Hyperbolic stereotypes like these characters actually exist and the moral development of recovering people is portrayed well. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    S1 is cool, slow and good for a blue mood. but don't watch S2, just end it at the first.
