Beautiful and strange
19 March 2016 | by jcrawfordorSee all my reviews

I've been a huge fan of both writers work for Arrested Development and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, so when Flaked turned up at the top of my Netflix homepage I decided to give it a try.

First, this show is definitely a testament to Arnett's acting. His character is moody, complex, and incredibly relateable. I would not categorize Flaked as a comedy at all, although it has its funny moments, the focus of the show is intense drama with several strong characters in a difficult situation.

The acting and the story aren't really what makes this show for me, though. There's something else about it, a certain je ne sais quoi as they say, that's very hard to explain. Flaked is beautiful.

The soundtrack is outstanding, and the cinematography, set dressing, just about every little detail somehow combine to evoke in me every bit of nostalgia that I've ever had for life in a small town. I've fallen in love with Flaked for the experience of watching it, and that's not something that happens to me very often.
