Screener Squad: The Flight Attendant

The Flight Attendant Series Review


Some drink to remember,
Some drink to forget,
And Cassie Bowden will drink to that.

Kaley Cuoco earns her wings as the titular flight attendant in this boozy paranoid thriller. After a forgotten night to remember, flight attendant and “high-functioning” alcoholic, Cassie Bowden wakes to find her new flame (Michiel Huisman) extinguished. She can flee the scene of the crime, but can she escape the FBI, family obligations, rabbits, or the mysterious night that has become her psyche’s unwelcome guest? With the support of her few friends, played by Rosie Perez, Zosia Mamet, and Griffin Matthews, Cassie must stay one step ahead of the law if she wants to exonerate herself. Drunken recall provides her with more than she bargained for, as she must also confront her alcoholism and resulting misremembered past. Pour yourself a tall glass of water and join Jena, Wright, and Alex as they unpack “The Flight Attendant” and all of her baggage.

” width=Jena Perry (Screener Squad)

Jena Perry. Aka Luna. Aka Dion. Aka Memori. Aka Dog whisperer. Aka whiskey connoisseur. As you can see, depending on when you met this Oakland, California native, you have experienced a completely different person, each time. After finally deciding on a 13+year career choice as a Videographer and Radio Personality, Jena balances her time between pursuing her Doctorate in Philosophy, providing insightful and funny critiques on films and Television, raising her daughter and dog in Ohio, and constantly fighting off the existential dread that is being a dope black woman in America in the 20th century.


” width=Wright Sulek (Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He’s co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. His current hosting gig is with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright is also hosting reviews with Screener Squad and editing reviews as well.


Alex Sullivan (Screener Squad)

This Alex. He Shy.

Fascinated by the countless worlds that can be visited by simply pressing “Play”, Alex finds himself awash in an endless stream of titles. Whenever a particularly strange title strikes his fancy, he becomes an enamored prophet of this new idea, spreading its good word to whomever will listen. Alex constantly works to improve his fluency in the universal language of cinema. Underneath his mellow facade, he’s a chihuahua, shaking with excitement to be a part of such a wonderfully diverse and welcoming community of voices that share his enthusiasm.
