Whet Your Appetite! How to Sample ‘Flight Attendant’ & More HBO Max Originals

Kaley Cuoco in The Flight Attendant

Not sure which show to pick for your year-end binge? Each day through Friday, at 10/9c, HBO2 will air the first two episodes of a series you can continue watching on HBO Max. Here’s the menu.

The Flight Attendant (December 27)

Catch the first two hours of this Emmy-nominated dark comedy starring Kaley Cuoco (above) as a stewardess whose party girl life hits major turbulence after she wakes up next to a dead body (Michiel Huisman).

Love Life (December 28)

The ups and downs of a single woman’s (Anna Kendrick) search for “the one” are chronicled, hilariously, in Season 1 of this anthology series set in New York City. For those who really commit: A second round, starring The Good Place’s William Jackson Harper, is also streaming.

Doom Patrol (December 29)

Matt Bomer, Brendan Fraser and Diane Guerrero head a stellar ensemble in this boldly weird take on the DC Comics superteam: misfit, misanthropic heroes powered by their own traumas, loss, anxieties and foul mouths.

Hacks (December 30)

Emmy winner Jean Smart shines as an aging Las Vegas comic who reluctantly teams with a sardonic young L.A. comedy writer (Hannah Einbinder) to save both their careers. Underneath the sharp verbal jabs is a must- watch comedy with heart.

Plus, they hint at 'good stuff' for Season 2.

Raised by Wolves (December 31)

Two androids (Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim) rearing human children on an inhospitable planet face a hostile religious cult that fled Earth after a devastating war. Executive producer Ridley Scott directs the first two episodes of this fresh and imaginative dystopian vision.
