    "A flight attendant wakes up in a Dubai hotel room with a dead man but with no memory of what happened."

    The first 3 episodes dropped today, and 2 more are scheduled for Dec 3rd, and 2 more for December 10th, and the final on December 17th.

    I started the first episode and had to stop for Thanksgiving. But it was not grabbing me. It seemed kind of amateurish. I plan to pick it back up this weekend to give it a chance.

    Kaley just can't seem to get away from playing felonious alcoholics...

    Have you heard about HBO Max?, looking to add another app and monthly charge to watch things? HBO Max has you covered. It’s gonna have all your favorites. Reruns of The Big Bang Theory, reruns of Friends, reruns of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. You can pay for all of those through HBO Max. HBO Max: It’s not HBO. It’s just TV.”

    Ironically, this was one time when John got it wrong. HBO Max IS HBO. Plus TV. Plus a little bit of original programming.

    That's why I canceled my HBO and signed up for HBO Max (which, as it happens, is cheaper as well). The only downside is that while most HBO programming shows up on Max at the same time it shows up on HBO, John Oliver doesn't show up until an hour or two later. (Maybe that's why he's so cranky..?)

    Does she cut her hair halfway through?

    I've only seen the three episodes that have aired, but it wouldn't surprise me a bit if she did eventually...

    I signed up for Hula + HBO Max. Been watching the channel but Flight Attendant does not show up on it as Black Friday morning. Any clue?

    Are you watching on Hulu or the HBO Max app? I think HBO Max originals only appear on its own app.

    I'm watching and I like it, but mostly for Kaley's performance. The plot seems a bit implausible. But she's very good.

    Watching on Hula's hub for HBOMax but you are right as the series is on the App only. I didn't read far enough before I signed up for free trial. I will cancel it as I can't get the app on my old tv. Wait until I can get it on Ruku. Meanwhile I can watch FA on my phone as my Hula password got me into the app on my phone.
    A lot of trouble for something they intended to attract new subscribers.

    It starts on linear HBO tonight.

    The Max series are supposed to air first on the app but on linear later.

    It was Bangkok.

    I'm enjoying it too. Has anyone here read the book it was based off of? I'm wondering if the whole "talking with the dead guy" thing is from the book or just a way to make memories more visual...

    Yeah, not a big fan of that plot trop. Also, don't care for the ridiculous music they use. Other than that, it's OK

    I don’t love the whole talk to a dead guy thing and sometimes it’s a little cheesy and overdone but other than that, I like the show and am curious how it will turn out.

    Talking to the dead guy reminds me of Baltar and Number Six on Battlestar Galactica. I wasn't a big fan of it back then, and am not really loving it here either.

    I've made it through the first 3, and am sticking with it. I like her friend/attorney Annie, and Megan (Rosie Perez) is a train wreck. That has me wanting to see more.

    I thought this would show up on HBO, but my guide has it on TBS instead.

    No HBO, but TBS is running the first episode to promote HBO MAX.
