This anthology series is about powerful, sexy and dangerous women inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels. The half-hour program features stories inspired by such noir classics as Double Indemnity (1944) and Pulp Fiction (1994) and classic thriller TV series like The Twilight Zone (1959). In each of stand-alone episode, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile. Every episode is introduced by a mysterious and enigmatic host, Lilith, played by Tanit Phoenix Copley, and features different casts and plot lines, some of which are intertwined as part of the series overall mythology.

The title "Femme Fatales" is not a correct French phrase. "Femme fatale" means "deadly woman," but "femmes" is the plural of "woman" in French. The word "fatale" is never made plural; there's no such word as "fatales" in French. The title, as is, would be translated "deadlys woman." See more »
Davis Bennett just discovered that lethal things often come in pretty packages. But the lesson cost him his life. In this case, looks really can kill. As for Lauren Coleston, well, she's about to learn something, which is that the life of a professional assassin is just as much about receiving pain as it is about dispensing it.

Cool blend of pulpy fiction and "Cinemax" content...
I've watched three episodes of this so far and have become a fan.
As someone who is tired of reality crap and the same stale, safe plot formulas playing out on network and cable (please kill me before I watch yet another cop/CSI show), "FF" takes a collection of familiar elements and tosses them in a pop culture mix master set to high. Yeah, it's corny at times, but it's also alternately funny, suspenseful, sexy, smart and scary all depending on the episode.
There are a lot of "grindhouse" elements here but without the gore or general "torture porn" mood of that genre. And while "Skinamax" fans are offered plenty of eye candy, the female characters are never debased or pointlessly exploited, and generally have the upper hand in the end. Yes, the femme fatales are the stars of "FF."
The most recent episode, "Something Like Murder" offers the most traditional "film noir" style of the show so far. And while it depends heavily on familiar characters the plot was pretty clever, and the cast game. Dialoge-wise, it reminded of what Pauline Kael said about the modern noir classic "Body Heat": "Sounds like the characters have been boning up on Chandler novels." But is that so wrong? Just a wink and a nod to the source material inspirations.
I'm not sure where "FF" is going, but I'll stay along for the ride.
