Anthony
24 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A flack is an American term for a publicist.

The normal definition is to get criticism. Going from the first episode this show will get lots of deserving flack.

Robyn (Anna Paquin) is an American flack working for a London Public Relations form. Her job is not only to publicise but protect clients from bad publicity.

Robyn is a tough go-getter but she has many of her own personal issues. Sniffing cocaine is one of them.

Anthony Henderson (Max Beesley) is a television chef who needs Robyn's brand of crisis management. His family friendly image is at risk from his sex addiction. He will be exposed by a kiss and tell expose.

When Robyn gives Anthony a lecture about male privilege and then asks him why he has not tried to have sex with her. You know this is shallow, puerile stuff given what happens next. In an era of #MeToo pretty disgraceful.

Maybe that is the point of Flack. The people are self centred, shallow, screwed up and have no principles. As a bittersweet comedy, do not expect to laugh much if at all.
