Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Flack is a British series about a publicist doing what she has to do to protect the reputation of her high-profile clients. This means that there's lots of bad behavior, including drinking, smoking, drug use, and illicit sexual liaisons (some nudity is visible). Suicide and parenthood are also addressed. There's also lots of cursing, and a few physical altercations (slapping, pushing).
Is It Any Good?
This knotty, uneven series features what's now a common tale: a strong woman who is great at her job but manages to sabotage her own life every step of the way. Robyn, who was unable to control the events in her troubled family's past, commits herself to trying to control everyone else's life, and isn't afraid to lie, bribe, or engage in other behaviors to do it. It's billed as a dramatic comedy in the United Kingdom, but stateside viewers may not appreciate Flack's sometimes subtle, often abrasive humor. Meanwhile, it often feels as if it is trying too hard to insert Robyn's personal struggles within the conflicts created by her clients. Nonetheless, viewers who stick with it will find the attempts to "fix" each public relations disaster filled with some entertaining dramatic tension.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
